Rapture ‘Round the Blogosphere

Rapture ‘Round the Blogosphere May 20, 2011

There are so many posts about Harold Camping and his (latest) prediction, and about Rapture prediction in general, around the blogs that I read, that I feel like I ought to link to some of them.

Rachel Held Evans blogs about the Great Disappointment, as does Marc Cortez.

Scott Bailey posts about the piece in the New York Times about family strife created in families as a result of Camping’s prediction. He also offers Rapture pranks, a flow chart, and a round-up.

Jason Staples blogs about a misinterpreted Bible passage often connected with the Rapture.

Darrell Pursiful shares a suggestion that selling all and giving to the poor, or hosting a final meal for those in need, might have been more appropriate ways of getting a more appropriate message out, from a Christian perspective. With all the money they have received in recent years they could have made a real difference. Darrell has also made plans for Sunday.
