Well, there are people in power in Washington DC right now who are playing a game too. Only it's called "Apocalypse or No Apocalypse". And these people are betting their lives -- and our lives too -- that they will be raised up and glorified on Judgment Day if they can just bring about the end of the world.
What if they blow up the world only to discover that "God doesn't like ugly". And that the "Left Behind" series is the work of the devil and that they have been duped?
"Deal or no deal?"
What if these fans of world destruction tried to second-guess God and then found out the hard way that they were DEAD wrong? And then Jesus Himself lays down the Law: Playing God with others' lives is a definite religious no-no. "You have been sorely mislead by Satan," adds St. Michael. "No Rapture for you!"
PS: God is also righteously angry because the United States has the second-highest infant mortality rate in the industrialized world. Crying to the roof-tops that one is "pro-life" yet letting thousands of new-born babies die needlessly? That's choosing the wrong case for sure. "No deal!"
