Re: ...and then what?
I am assuming you are getting all this information from the Book of Revelations in the New Testament . This particular book almost did not make it into the cannon. The prophecies of John were more likely written to Gel the early Christians by scare tactics. At the time of it's writting the Jewish temples were being destroyed by Rome. Since its writting the Book of Revelations has been the source of many believers as the fate of mankind. And every single instance these would be dooms day prophets have been WRONG. As the turn of the millienum dooms day' ers have predicted the end.. nothing happened. Davide Koresh led his BELIEVERS to they're fiery deaths...Manson.....Dr. Miller in the 1800's . How arrogant is it that the Christians will be the only ones to be accepted into Heaven? How arrogant that Christians will be taken up in rapture?

You will get nowhere with me by trying to bash the Bible.

No I am merely telling you where the mythology came from.

Whats so arrogant about it?

Well the premise that the only way to not be burned and suffer for all eternity is by being a Christian for one. If you were not born in a christian country in a christian family but say in India you would be condemed for being Hindu and well on your way to hell. So your salvation is dependant upon chance of being born in the right place. Any religion that claims to be the only way to grace and to be the only valid religion is full of shit in my opinion.

Re: ...and then what?
I agree whole heartedly. God if he does indeed exist is not a racist. Unfortunate that many need to pigion hole him and lay claim that he does not hear the prayers of non christians.
