Many followers of the Christ assume only they are going to Heaven. Even worse, within Christianity, there are pickers and choosers; they claim to speak for God and freely condemn all sorts of people, just like the Pharisees did in their day. So this is dedicated to the harder hearts among Jesus’ legacy, sure the Rapture is just around the bend and rubbing their hands in delight and/or angst about all us miserable folks who are surely going to Hell.

Honey, Hell is right here on earth… just look in a crack den. I don’t believe in the Rapture. Jesus said love God and each other. God is LOVE! Can I get an “amen”? Amy


A Fundie sighed
that if I died
today, I’d go to Hell

“How do you know
just where I’ll go;
and when we’ll hear that bell?”

Until the “Rapture,”
let us capture
what God bids us to do:

Doing justice
living kindness
and walking humbly, too

End it today?
Guess I’d say
I truly have no fears

I live as though
the earth will go
another thousand years
