Foolish Friday Fun - After Rapture Party Playlist

May 20, 2011 – Comments (33) | RELATED TICKERS: RAP.DL , T , URE

I'm sure most everyone has heard about the end-of-the-world, rapture prediction for tomorrow, 21 May.

My church's weekly e-blast to the Sunday School teacher's included this:

"I’ve seen a few plans for After Rapture parties – a friend was soliciting suggestions for the playlist. What would you suggest?!"

The suggestions so far include:

Don't Fear the Reaper,
It's the End of the World as We Know It,
Stairway to Heaven,
Whiskey Bent and Hellbound
Cheeseburger in Paradise. 

If you're looking for a break from gold bear-bull debates, Austrian-Keynesian economics, charts, dividends, currencies and the markets (not that there's anything wrong with that), please chime in with your IPO of After Rapture Party playlist selections.

Fool on!

Russ

Consider me a sucker for the classics, but I'll have to go with Burner from Motörhead:

Here are the lyrics in case anyone wants to sing along.

IT'S MY PARTY
Lesley Gore

Nobody knows where my Johnny has gone
Judy left the same time
Why was he holding her hand
When he's supposed to be mine

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

 

At least at the post-rapture party, you won't offend anyone with your freak dancing - not a prude in the room.

 I had thought End of the World would be unbeatable for this category just based on the title.  But, Ride of the Valkyries might be an even better fit.

Creeping Death

Not sure if it fits in with the rapture theme, but I wanted to hear it and it does have a religious theme.

 Someone stop me before I go looking up Slayer tunes since they covered this topic quite a bit :)

That fool who made that prediction also initially predicted it would occur back in 1994 ??

and hes so flipping old that he couldn't wait until 2012 because he might die  any day now..

 

However for Randy Macho MAN Savage.... he is  done... finished... that dummy kissed a tree goodnite......

So if he predicted Randy would get Raptured he was only one day off ???

Creeping Death is probably my all-time favourite Metallica song.

Many thanks to all who contributed and for making this one of the highest rec'd blog entries I've made.  At this point, either the prediction was wrong or we've been left behind.

Fool on! and one one more for the playlist.

The prediction was wrong. Others may not be aware but this is Harold Camping's third time to get it wrong.

When it comes to eschatology (Bible Prophecy), there are many things we do not fully understand, but there is a very clear statement in the Bible that nullifies Harold Camping's prediction.

http://biblebrowser.com/mark/13-1.htm I included the whole passage for context, but verse 32 says that not even the Son knows. If not even Jesus knows, who does Harold Camping think he is?!?!

We do not know the day, the hour, the week, the month, the year, the decade, the century, or the even the millenium when Jesus will come back. Only God the Father knows.

Lemon,

Samuel Clemens said that every correspondence he received from a fan was expected to be paid for. Meaning that the writer, when attaching a name and return address expected a letter in return. He said only one time in his life did he ever receive a letter from a fan that included no signature and no return address. Consequintly no payment was requested.

This man is looking for payment. That is all. He is like the bored five year old. He wants to be acknowledged, for good or bad. To take his predictions beyond the walls of his congregation is to invite attention (payment) from the rest of us. But what do we do? We openly mock (pay) him over and over.

@ #29 What I feel bad about is those who quit their jobs because of acting on what Harold Camping said.

As you stated above the Bible says that not even Jesus knows when the end of time will be. To take this man's word for having cracked some code that tells him when the day will come, after two other epic failures in the past, is folly.

Camping is claiming to know the mind of God better than Jesus. Is that not putting yourself ahead of Jesus in some way? Should the members of his congregation have tossed him out on his butt the first time he tried to float this idea? I think yes. Instead they put their faith in one man that is batting .000 with his end of the world malarky.

If anyone quit a job or made any other major life change based on the word of this false profit I feel bad for them, too. Actually I feel sad for the members of their families. Hopefully this experience will teach them a valuble lesson, will find a better church.

Yes, his church members should have questioned him for orthodoxy and removed him from his position. 

Even the Apostle Paul told his listeners to check what he said against the rest of Scripture.
