Thank you for sharing that. I suppose had I grown up with that, it’s likely I’d be upset too. I remember reading these magazines that would show up here and there… I don’t remember what it was called, but they were these fantastical tales about End-Of-The-World scenarios with doomsday quotes, revelations, 2nd coming in this big dramatic way… how we have to be prepared for the oncoming storm and be lifted up bodily to heaven…
..and I’d read them. They weren’t from my childhood church (tame methodist) but they were like reading science fiction to me.
I never thought anybody really believed the stuff – I figured it was just entertainment value.
But as an adult, I learned that yes, indeed, people believe it. And it still surprises me.
