This is bullshit, Does the writer know that all allmillenialists believe in Jesus Christ as His Saviour and that Christ will bring home all those who trust in Him whether amillenialists or premillenialists or postmillenialists?
I’m not sure why the swearing is felt to be necessary, but are you aware that amillennialists do not think that there will be a rapture?
I know I don’t visit that often, or post anymore, but I lol’d at the these comments. Hope you are doing well, Dr. McGrath.
Great to hear from you!
Jim, my guess is Stefan is aware that amils don’t believe in the rapture. He believes amils will be raptured with other believers, not sitting in their cars regretting their error. But he may not have considered that the bumper sticker could refer to amils changing their eschatology while zooming up toward the clouds.
This is a cool discussion as long as everyone knows the bad guys go first.
as an amillenialist who disbelieves in the rapyure, I still found this bumper sticker hilarious! Any idea where I can purchase the bumper sticker? Lol.
Byron, I think it may have been made using Photoshop for the purpose of this amusing image. But I suspect that it would be possible to have one custom made – and in fact, if you were to start selling them, I suspect that you would find them popular!
