Except, of course the hard core believers would tell you that the world will go to shit after the "righteous believers" are taken away. It's important to remember that for some people, the notion that non-believers will suffer either the Tribulations or Hellfire is almost as satisfying as the promise of their supposed reward in Heaven.

In other words, being saved is only half the bargain. Watching the unsaved suffer is the real fun.

Perfect! PJMcK Dec 2019 #1
