The Rapture is not quite the End of the World, however. As I understand the concept, The Rapture describes the event when all humans are judged and those found worthy go to Heaven. Some believers envision the process as involving people disappearing as they go about their everyday lives. (If it happens on Saturday, it won’t be a good time to be out driving.) Then, after The Rapture occurs, the rest of us apparently get to stay on Earth to deal with a period of disaster and chaos and turmoil before the world eventually ends.
Wouldn’t you know it? Russell is supposed to graduate on Sunday!
