As unlikely as the rapture is at 6 p.m. I would like to say a few words. What is the rapture? Is it truly the end of all things? Or is it symbolic; a reminder to live every day as faithful, as loving and most generous as the next? I think the real message is not a vengeful God but one of love. A God that sees the endless suffering on Earth and makes a stand to end it: once and for all. In doing so God brings realization that he was never to be feared, but loved. God never hated one group over another. He or She never judged by sex, creed or orientation. God loved all man and womankind equally. Even those who lived in ignorance, professing the inferiority of others, would be forgiven as they see the light. That is the strength of God’s love; a strength that we should not forget as soothsayers will go on predicting the next end of days.
