Rollins parable set to media
Peter Rollins writes deeply philosophical books and also books of parables. He has put one of the latter to a video. It’s one of my favorites of his parables because it twists on its head (hacks) the entire concept behind the Rapture, a non-biblical belief that God will call up to heaven all the believers before God destroys the earth.
Watch it. Even though it sounds familiar, and Scripture is quoted, and it looks like a Jack Chick tract, it gets turned on its head at 3:00.
What do you think about a God who wants to be with “those who have discovered heaven in the very act of forsaking it?” What does that mean to you?
