Combining into

Because it has become insanely difficult to manage a bulletin board these days, the managers of Rapture Ready and Rapture Forums have decided to join our boards together under a software program that is easier to manage. Because RF has their database operating well under an Enforo license, we decided to make Rapture Forums the focal point of a consolidation. Since Chris, the owner of RF, has long experience in running a forum, he can better manage the problems that come with this technology.

                    CNN picked it up and it's the #1 viewed story right now:

                    This many major earthquakes (I think 9 total now) over a span of a week and a half is highly unusual. Perhaps people will start asking questions, and turn to the Scriptures for answers, we can only hope and

                      I, like others on this board, have really felt convicted to do SOMETHING to spread God's word. So, I just ordered a magnet door sign for my car. It says:

                      Increased floods and earthquakes?
                      Unstable weather, economy, jobs?
                      Luke 21:28
                      "When you begin to see these things happen, look up for your redemption is near."

                      I won't leave it on the car when I get out of the car in public, will put it inside first, so no one decides to take it off. I can't wait till it arrives, should get here next Wed. or Thursday. I don't see how folks can see all these earthquakes happening and NOT think we're in the end times.
                      Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord, with all your heart, and lean not to your own understanding. But in all your ways, acknowldge Him, and He will direct your path."
                      George Washington on 9/17/1796 "It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible."
                      Waiting to see your face, Lord! Trying to be patient!

                                I'm totally lost - where is Caledonia??
                                I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
                                For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor;
                                no good thing does He withhold from those whose walk is blameless.
