Once this happens, this UN-style NWO gov't will begin to take control. Eventually this gov't will be controlled by the anti-christ (think satan possessed dude) and will begin to hunt down and kill all people who don't believe in HIM (christians, muslims, whatever). So anyone who becomes a christian after these events would be under constant fear of death.

Can you decide to join the other side and start killing the religious freaks? That would be fun :D

Btw, how come the main character is still on the Earth if all the 'true believers' were taken away?
the ign review says that people after the 'rapture' figured out that the 'rapture' happened and suddenly became good christians. your character must be one of those.





anyway, i still don't have any clue what the rapture is or where they got the idea. they never mentioned it in church on sundays. first i saw it, i think, was in the 'our dumb century' book published by the onion.
***********************************************************************
The rapture ("harpazo" in Greek) is the event in certain systems of Christian eschatology (the study of the end times) in which it is stated that all born-again Christians will be taken from Earth into Heaven by Jesus Christ. While almost all forms of Christianity believe that those who are saved will have eternal life, the term "rapture" is usually applied specifically to the event in which all Christians on Earth are simultaneously transported by some manner of physical bodily ascension to join Christ. Everyone else on Earth will be left to wonder where they went.

Leave it to the evangelists to tack on such a ludicrous fantasy to their religion. It's like they went to the Jerry Bruckheimer Hollywood School of Bullsh!t.

The irony is that if all of the deviout Christians, especially the ones who believe in the Rapture, the ones who want to ram their religion down everyone else's throat, banning abortion, marijuana, and birth control, etc, were to suddenly vanish from the Earth, many people would be very happy.

What those folks don't realize is that many people who value their freedom from primative religious irrationality regard them as the moral equivalent of the Christian's anti-Christ.
