If Christians disappear off the face of the Earth because of "The Rapture,"
there's a site that has recently launched that will let you say "I told
you so" via email to your "left behind" friends and relatives.
You've Been Left Behind says that it "gives you one last opportunity to reach your lost family and friends For Christ."
Here's how it works: six days after "The Rapture," the system is triggered. The "switch is thrown" when when 3 of their 5 team members fail to log in over a 3 day period. The extra 3 days are for a fail-safe. The members are also scattered across the U.S. to prevent, say, a natural disaster from accidentally triggering this. 3 out of 5? I guess this is just in case some of them are "backslidden."
Once that happens your emails start flying, assuming you've paid the $40 annual fee (the site says this fee will be reduced as more subscribe) .
Service-wise, you receive two "boxes."
In Box #1, you get 150 MB of encrypted storage that can be sent to 12 possible email addresses. This, according to the site, is for your "personal private letters to your closest lost friends and relatives."
Box #2 has 100 MB of unencrypted storage. This box can have up to 50 email recipients. According to the site, Box #2 is for "more generic documents to lost family & friends."
BTW, If you don't want to write your own documents, you can use some of the site's pre-written documents.
According to the site, it's "Programmed and Run by Christians, for Christians." The $40 fee says it's not totally altruistic, but they do need to run the site.
In their "Why" section, they say:
We all have family and friends who have failed to receive the Good News of the Gospel.
The unsaved will be 'left behind' on earth to go through the "tribulation period" after the "Rapture". You remember how, for a short time, after (9/11/01) people were open to spiritual things and answers. (We are still singing "God Bless America" at baseballs' seventh inning stretch.) Imagine how taken back they will be by the millions of missing Christians and devastation at the rapture. They will know it was true and that they have blown it. There will be a small window of time where they might be reached for the Kingdom of God. We have made it possible for you to send them a letter of love and a plea to receive Christ one last time. You can also send information based on scripture as to what will happen next. Each fulfilled prophecy will cause your letter and plea to be remembered and a decision to be made.
"WHY" is one last chance to bring them to Christ and snatch them from the flames!
I have a question, though: what if, during the six days after the trigger event, all "hell" breaks loose (pun intended) and there's no power for the servers to send the emails? For that matter, will anyone even be able to read the emails!?
