Personally, I do not have any strong conviction on the notion of the Rapture, where God will call up all living Believers to heaven at some point during the End of Days. I suppose it is because I am unsure about all the different resurrections and judgments. As I have said before, I am no theologian. However, whenever I see a ‘news article’ about alien life, then I think maybe there will be a rapture and that they will blame the disappearance of Believers on an alien mass abduction.
At the end of the day, I just see this as another mass media distraction. We shall soon enough know whether the Rapture will happen — or not.
