By Pastor T, with @metgohnaJake
A serialized peek at Pastor T’s mailbag as he answers questions about the rapture.
I Thessalonians 4 17 Then we who are alive, who are left, will be suddenly caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will always be with the Lord.
Editing and curation by @metgohnaJake in a hovel, near a place of strong drink and non-domestic tobacco, far from salvation, somewhere in Macedonia. @metgohnaJake is a former marketer and tends to see the world in a cynical way, where every act is specious performance and all players have ulterior motives and all motives are self-serving. He learned this while making rich people richer, so we can’t really blame him, despise him though we might for his complicity in Pastor T’s snakey-eyed activities.
In each episode, Pastor T will address reader questions about the rapture. Pastor T has, he informs us, had the good fortune to ascend into heaven on a day pass and discuss the matter with the powers that be and so is qualified, ordained you might say, to speak on the matter.
Pastor T is just as qualified to speak on the rapture as any other person on Earth. No one can say differently, and make it stick.—Pastor T
Q: Pastor T, who exactly did you speak to on your journey to the hereafter?
A: Fellow sinner, I was able to speak to the Acting Head of Rapture Education. He was a soft-spoken gentleman with a BTh from a fine Canadian institution of higher learning. He got hisself pre-raptured during a mink farming accident in the Sixties.
Q: Follow up—was he a Macedonian, Pastor T?
A: No, a Funk, from S.E. Manitoba. Next question, please, @metgohnaJake…
@metgohnaJake: Incidentally, Pastor T has asked me to tell our readers about today’s COZY 60% off BLOW-OUT sale!
It’s a prayer tea-cozy, specially made of synthetic mink fur and available in three rapture grades of luxuriousness: Cumulus, Altocumulus, and Ultra-Luxurious Cirrocumulus! Shipping is free on orders of three or more. Now, back to our mailbag!
Q: Will my border collie be raptured, Pastor T?
A: [dead air…dead air…dead air…] Sinner, you have to ask herself three important questions: Does your dog bark? Does your dog bite? Does your dog shed? The rapture ain’t twitter, so not every dog is welcome.
Q: Boxers or briefs, Pastor T? #swiperightsarah
A: I’m glad you asked, sinner… @metgohnaJake, perhaps you’d like to take this one?
@metgohnaJake: Sure, PT! How about a pair of our famous ASS-cendant boxers? In three sinner-sizes!
Q: Will the Raptures win the NBA Championship?
A: Yes. Yes, sinner, they will.
@metgohnaJake: That’s all for today’s Daily Rapture. Tune in again soon to get the answers to important questions like:
Q: Pastor T, the Gulf War… I guess that was actually just, like, the warm-up band?
Q: Pastor T, what does the T stand for? #swiperightsarah
Q: Pastor T, Millennial Kingdom or Millennium Falcon—which is faster?
