Billy Graham's Daughter Says God's Judgment is Near
Billy Graham's daughter, Anne Graham Lotz, believes the rapture is coming and "the day of the Lord is near." Graham-Lotz cites the Book of Joel, Matthew 24 (gospel being preached to entire world) and Romans 1 (God's salvation/punishment for idolaters) as well as 1948 (rebirth of Israel) and increased frequency in both terrorism and natural disasters as reasons for her beliefs. She suggests we pray to ward off God's judgment between May 15-23 (dates between Ascension and Pentecost). So better get your prayer groups ready Thumbsup

The scary thing about all of this is that *some* Christians actually buy into all of this and listen to what she is saying and use all of these aforementioned things as *proof* that what the Bible says is true. People like Graham-Lotz make it even harder to have reasonable conversations with some of my christian friends.

So, let Me get this straight: She's trying to ward off judgment with prayer? A refreshing change from "sell all your belongings and wait for the bus to Heaven," but still silly as all get-out.

Mind you, it'd be ironic if the elder Mr. Graham finally passed away while all this praying was going on.

Yes, supposedly praying during that time frame could help ward off or "soften" God's judgment (re: Romans 1). There is a sweet looking older gentleman who I always pass on my morning coffee run who is forever holding up a sign saying "the end of the world is near." I am sure he is eating this stuff up!

Seems as soon as one prediction doesn't happen, someone comes up with a new one.

Pretty much and you can be sure they always manage to find some convoluted Bible passage to back them up.

Hmm... let me think about this...

Judgment has been imminent for 2000 years.
Prayer is effective at warding off judgment.
2000 years has past, no judgment!
Therefore, prayer is 100% effective!!

Checkmate atheists!! Thumbsup

Hmm... you may be on to something there, champ... Let me think this through some more... Consider

Of course!!

Judgement is bullshit.
God has a plan.
Therefore prayer is useless and illogical.

I wanted a Nintendo.
Praying did not yield a Nintendo.
Mowing lawns yielded a Nintendo.
Therefore mowing lawns is 100% effective!! Thumbsup

Ok, enough sarcasm though. Xtians should just read their damm bible already. Jebus promised rapture a long ass time ago. Damm... a weather man can be off by one measly degree and peeps lose trust in him. Jebus is off by more than 2000 years and counting, peeps are still on their knees praying, seriously.

RE: Billy Graham's Daughter Says God's Judgment is Near
I thought these jokers were specifically told they'd have fuck-all clue when judgement day was gonna arrive and they'd have to sit tight and be good servants waiting for the master because he'd come "like a thief in the night"...

They were *also* told there'd be false prophets chucking lies around about when judgement day was gonna arrive. So seriously, as a sincere Christian, shouldn't you be not paying any attention to these people?

Christees are weird.
