The unsaved will be 'left behind' on earth to go through the "tribulation period" after the "Rapture".

I will even promise to convert after the rapture on receipt of the email! Of course if it turns out not to be a real rapture I'll just keep the money.
So if 3/5 people are sick for 6 days and can't log in then the system assumes the rapture happened and people get hilarious emails about how they've been left behind.
Originally posted by twhiteheadits another example of religious zealots believing absolutely anything you say as long as you claim Jesus told you so. Even if we take John's apocalypse to be true, there would be a whole marathon of carnage and destruction before the actual rapture happens. definetely not waking up one morning and half the population of the earth mysteriously disappeared.
Does anyone know how this whole rapture business works? I notice from the first post that people still have the option to 'believe'. Will it be clear to everyone that the rapture has in fact taken place or will a whole lot of (or a tiny few) people simply disappear without explanation? If we all knew why the had been taken then surely we would believe? Of ...[text shortened]... od loves us and we can be 'saved' by simply believing in him then why is he hiding so hard?

I am unsure what legal action can be taken against these monsters that take advantage of idiots. i mean they are advertising a system and they don't force anyone to take part of it. and unless they break what they promise(they will break it eventually of course and flee for the tropical islands they will buy with the money) i don't think they can be thrown in jail
Originally posted by scottishinnzwell as a society we should protect the ones unable to protect themselves. that include idiots. as much as we would like to let natural selection remove those retards from the gene pool, we might need them later on. And frankly there will always be a smarter person trying to con a less smart one so stopping the former might be beneficial for society.

Originally posted by PsychoPawnyeah i feared that as well. so they continue the scam in a legal matter and when they decide they have enough they will announce rapture, and move all the money in the caymans islands
I'm not sure where you would draw the line here.
I tend to draw it as fraud. In this case they specifically tell you what their service is and under what conditions they hold as deciding whether the rapture has happened.
Where is the fraudulent claim? They probably do actually believe that the rapture will happen. If you believe that too then you ...[text shortened]... n that eventuality.
I think this is ridiculous, but I don't see anything illegal about it.
Originally posted by scottishinnzI meant that they are not worthy of getting to heaven at the rapture - hence the plan to head for the caymans with all the money of those taken by the rapture.

I'm not a dispensationalist, but the ones I know do NOT believe there will be a "window of opportunity" after the rapture for the unsaved of age to be saved. There's a verse (somewhere, Thessolonians maybe?) that says the unsaved will be sent "a strong delusion" by God in the aftermath of the rapture. In short, they will see that millions of people (Chri rist, having to have the number of the beast in order to buy food and do business, etc.
