imageThe Prophesy in the News (PITN) folks are going to milk the Shroud of Turin material for all it is worth to help promote their conference. HERE and HERE are examples.

And see my post, How ‘Ya Gonna Keep ‘Em Down on the Farm? After They’ve Seen Paree

FYI: Back in 2008, one of the Rapture websites called “WHY” put out this message to people who thought they would be raptured:

We have made it possible for you to send them a letter of love and a plea to receive Christ one last time [after you have left]. You can also send information based on scripture as to what will happen next. Each fulfilled prophecy will cause your letter and plea to be remembered and a decision to be made.

"WHY" is one last chance to bring them to Christ and snatch them from the flames!

How did the computer know?

imageHere is the best Rapture idea yet. This book, How to Profit From the Coming Rapture: Getting Ahead When You’re Left Behind should be an immediate success.

For a fairly good write up on the Rapture movement see Rapture in Wikipedia.

Frankly, I’m sorry to see the Shroud of Turin used for what I think, now, is basically a movement to sell books and conventions and promote a non-orthodox, off-beat Christianism.

If, when I was just learning about the shroud, I had seen this connection being promoted, I’d have run for the hills.
