It's The End Of The World As We Know It {and I feel fine :)}

There's been a lot of talk about
the 'rapture' happening on May 21st
{aka, tomorrow}

I feel like no matter what you think, or what your beliefs are,
it's just a little eerie to think about your last day on Earth.
It's not one of my most favorite things to talk about, I'll admit.
However, even though I know this whole rapture thing is totally a hoax,
it really does get a little freaky when you start thinking about it.

While I was out to dinner with a friend last week
she told me that she had been doing a little research on the guy causing all this mass hysteria,
Harold Camping,
and his crazy theory.

Anyway, she proceeded to tell me that on his website he provides a pre-made kit
that he recommends everyone purchases.
a 'rapture survival kit' if you will.
{oh, minor detail, the kits cost anywhere from $1,500-$2,800}
Since we're all in to saving money and DIY projects,
I thought I'd post the items in the kit for you,
so you can make your own, if you so feel the need,
or read it and laugh, because I know that's what I did.

Once I read the kooky things on his list I couldn't help but crack up...
it totally lightened up the situation and made me realize how out there he is.

So, if you'd like to feel a little more at ease, or go purchase these items to make your own kit
{hey, I won't judge}
here is the list:

  • One nine-millimeter automatic pistol
  • Two boxes of ammunition
  • One drug issue containing antibiotics, morphine, vitamin pills, pep pills, sleeping pills, tranquilizer pills, and seven vials of holy water
  • One miniature combination Aramaic phrase book and King James Bible, edited by Harold Camping
  • Nine packs of sugar-free chewing gum {like really, are you kidding me?}
  • One issue of prophylactics {you know, to prevent procreating}
  • Three lipsticks {???}
  • Three pair of nylon stockings {to go with the lipstick?!}
  • List of key neo-conservative talking points, to please the Lord, provided by Fox News
  • One “I Heart Unborn Babies” bumper sticker
  • One foil Rapture helmet {pretty sure you could make this yourself...hummm, maybe a DIY tutorial?!}
  • List of major religions, including numerous Christian denominations, to avoid and shun
  • “Kill a Queer for Christ” t-shirts
  • One pamphlet of phrases guaranteed to flatter Saint Peter
  • One instructional brochure entitled “How to Identify the Anti-Christ,” with a photograph of Congressional Democrats on the cover
See my point?
This guys is a total wacko!
But I did have a good laugh at the kit list, so I'll at least give him that.

I hope you enjoyed it, and now feel a little more at ease.
If not, at least you have a shopping list...better get to it ;)

See you all for a new blog post TOMORROW!
{promise I'll be here}
Matthew 24:36-37 No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

This guy is super prepared, just in case though :)
{I'm thinking this is the DIY version??}

This made me laugh!! I know that we never know when it is going to happen... so save yourself the $$ and make sure your heart and life are in the right place!! It could happen tmrw, not because he said it is, but because the Lord decided too!

I love that you posted this! My family and I were just talking about this. It seems like all I hear about these days is the world ending and people "getting ready" for it. I just can't help but laugh because I don't understand how you get ready for the end?? It is going to happen one way or another and everyone will face it. You can't hide from it and guns won't protect you. If we were meant to know we would. I guess the perfect saying for it would be just to live every day like it's your last.

Oh my goodness. Is that kit for real?! What the heck? We all need to PRAY for that special kind of crazy that these people have going on!

Thanks for lightening the subject Alex! :)

This is hilarious! I was just talking about this with a friend tonight. She heard of a couple that is so sure this is going to happen that they've not bought ANYTHING for their unborn child due on the 27th. All I can say is don't drink the koolaid!

Lisa said...
