Following the distinct lack of ‘Judgement Day’ on Saturday (in any time zone!) there has been a lot of discussion about the madness of evangelical Christians – in particular those who were looking for the Rapture on Saturday at 6pm.
Now, some of us who describe ourselves as evangelical Christians (such as me) may be a bit mad. But is there more to the story than that we are simply a group of crazed people desperate for judgement day so that we can escape from this world and get revenge on all those naughty heathens?
As you might expect, my answer to the question is ‘yes’.
In today’s Daily Telegraph, Tim Stanley has written on this. He is not an evangelical Christian – but helps paint a more balanced view.
