  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

    I hope this is the right place to post this, I want everyone to be able to respond.

    I am a big fan of the Marvel movies and the Shows and have been watching WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Solider. I began to wonder today what would happen to Christianity if the blip or Snap were real.

    Here you have five years were half the population of Earth disappeared, not just people but everything. As a thought experiment I placed myself there where that happened in real life and I would question were God was. I am sure that some would think the rapture happened and felt Left Behind.

    My question thusly: What do you think would happen to Christianity if the snap was real?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Social distancing in your local church would be a cinch!

    To answer in a bit more detail - for a start I don't think anything like a "Snap" is going to happen, where half the population is going to suddenly disappear.

    If it did, then I suppose I'd have to pay lip service to "The Rapture". But I don't believe in the Rapture - I think it's a load of codswallop, a house of cards built up around a distorted interpretation of a single Bible verse.

    I think it's far more likely that Rapture believers are going to be disillusioned, particularly if God allows dire disasters to happen eg. nuclear war, such that the "living will envy the dead". As they spent their days living in a dismal, subsistence, underground culture, they'd be wondering when the God of the 'deux ex machina' was going to deliver them.

    And it wouldn't happen.

    Maybe it would have about the same result the Black Death did in the middle ages.
