Rapture-ready

~via Zadok's Commonplace Book. From The Telegraph
A new internet service allows Christian subscribers to send emails to non-believing friends and relatives after they have died.

Youvebeenleftbehind.com offers users a facility to store emails and documents that are sent to up to 63 email addresses six days after the sender and fellow believers have been transported to Heaven.

Some of the messages can be encrypted information such as bank account details and electronic passwords. The rest can be spiritual encouragement such as Biblical passages intended to bring loved ones "to Christ and snatch them from the flames".

The service is rooted in the belief held by some evangelicals in the Rapture, a sudden visit from God in which Christians are taken away to Heaven leaving the rest to spend a further seven years on Earth under the dominion of the Anti-Christ.
Puts a whole different spin on "You've got mail!"
