I'd hardly call that an apology letter. It almost rubs in a whole "I was chosen and you weren't. Neener neener." attitude.

Dear Christians,

Sorry you all got left behind. Turns out the Jews were right.

Sincerely,

Yaweh

My mom left one of these for me on the kitchen table when I was a kid. Turns out she just went to the Floyd concert.

I'll tell you how this gets sent. They pay four guys to work in 6 hours shifts in an isolated booth at a hidden location. The job is to push a button every few seconds for the duration of the shift.

The four guys will be unimpeachable rapture material.

When the button stops getting pressed, the rapture-grams go out.

Dear Everyone,

Actually it was the Mandeans who were right. But you killed them all, so the whole Rapture thing just isn't going to work out this time. Enjoy your eternity in Hell, I'm off to try again.

Love,

YHVH

From the list of possible Antichrists found through interrobang's link:
Barney the Dinosaur Because John, the writer of Revelation, would never have known what a dinosaur looked like, it's logical to assume he would have identified any vision of Barney as one of a dragon. Taking this into consideration, you might find the following Scriptures quite revealing: Revelation 12:3, "And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon…,"
Revelation 13:4, "And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?"
Revelation 20:2, "And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years."

Okay!

Does that mean dsword gets Raptured?

Dear senders of the rapture letter,

It's called Pride. While you're in purgatory, look it up.

Sincerely,

God

P.S. Remember that whole thing about motes in your neighbor's eye and planks in your own? Yeah, thought so, bitch.

We're all totally dying to find out what they tell you to believe, konolia.

This may come as a shock to you, but the one who sent you this has been taken up to heaven.

This line is the saddest, so many wonderful and kind people defensively choosing the escape of religion due to some terrible personal tragedy that has left them with unbearable hurt. A hurt that is lessened through a sort of chosen blindness. It is for someone to understand the fallacy of others, but never feel, to however small extent, the human feelings, common to all of us, that negotiated Christian's way into their personal religious beliefs.

Dear Nutty Christians,

Have we met? You don't look familiar.

Best,

I wish they would just GO already and leave the place to the rest of us who love this world and care about what happens here.

In the event that self-righteous fundamentalists are raptured away, well, I for one will thank God for making the world a lot better.

But until then we're stuck with them, so I prefer to think that there is no God.

I want to believe that when you die, if you're an atheist you see a heaven and then get told you're not allowed to enter. If you believe in god, when you die, there's a brief moment where an atheist points at you and then says "HA HA" in a Nelson Muntz-style voice then nothing.

If the rapture doesn't happen, I really wish I could send these people postcards after their deaths pointing out how wrong they were.

You should now seek out others who have
also given their lives to Christ, read a Bible daily, and do your best to
bring others to Christ.


Jeez, that's a lot of time and effort.

And of course, the obligatory...

If you get taken in the Rapture, can I have your car?


Just think of how much less traffic there will be!

The Rapture doesn't eat cars. Now he only eats guitars.

Inconceivable! from the 'home' link...

How is this accomplished, you might ask. It's a dead man switch that will automatically send the emails when it is not reset.

Anyone else want to sign up for this, and place bets on how soon one of these guys has car trouble?

jonp72's post just made me laugh, like, a whole bunch.

Rap, ture, indeed.

I like how the letter in the first link is written. The Rapture has come and gone, yet if you close your eyes real tight and start praying hard, you just might catch the next one.

I imagine God as the kindly old ticket seller at the train station who looks at you, checks his pocket watch, and says, "Well son, you just missed the 7:30, the next Rapture won't be along 'til 11:15..."

When I was on the earth, I got into a lot of trouble for pointing out that the State of Nebraska Capitol Building was in reality constructed for the purpose of serving as a great Baal temple, or Sun temple, and that it contained a Satanic priesthood, called the Innocents, who use the head of Satan as their emblem. I don't know if I'm right or not, but if it turns out that Lincoln, Nebraska is the nest of Satanism that I suspect it is, you should probably avoid it as a very hostile place to Christians - maybe even a site of human sacrifice.

WTF?
