Paradoxical emotions regarding the rapture
Do I believe that a rapture will take place tomorrow (or any time, really)?
No. Not even a little bit.
Am I scared that a rapture will take place tomorrow?
Yeah, as a matter of fact I am a wee bit apprehensive. Can’t help myself. I mean, stranger things have happened, right?
(Oh wait. — No they haven’t.)
Does it make sense to be nervous about what I know isn’t going to happen?
But irrational fear (or, in this case, irrational mild uneasiness) isn’t that uncommon, so I can’t be the only one feeling this way. At least that’s what I’m going to tell myself.
What about you? A little bit nervous?
