They believe that all Christian believers will go up to heaven with Jesus, leaving the non-believers to suffer hell on Earth. In light of this, <em>Eight Forty-Eight</em> asked listeners what they would do on their last day. Host Alison Cuddy was joined by two people who are familiar with disasters.<a href="http://www.deepsurvival.com/" target="_blank"><br> <br> Laurence Gonzales</a> is the author of <em>Deep Survival: Who Lives, Who Dies and Why</em>.<a href="http://www.wciu.com/youandme.php?section=chatdaddy" target="_blank"> Art “Chat Daddy” Sims</a> is an entertainment correspondent with the show <em>You and Me This Morning on The U</em>.<br> <br> They joined <em>Eight Forty-Eight's</em> Alison Cuddy to offer some ideas on how to approach the end of times.</p><p><em>Drake + The Rapture Mashup, "Best Jealous Lover I Ever Had", (thehoodinternet.com)</em></p></p> Fri, 20 May 2011 13:19:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/episode-segments/2011-05-20/bucket-list-final-days-earth-86814 Biblical scholar explains what scripture says about end of times http://www.wbez.org/episode-segments/2011-05-19/biblical-scholar-explains-what-scripture-says-about-end-times-86751 <img typeof="foaf:Image" src="http://llnw.wbez.org/segment/photo/2011-May/2011-05-19/End of time Flickr Victoria Shephard.jpg" alt="" /><p><p>Some are predicting Saturday, May 21, as the date for The Rapture. That's not the name of a hot new local metal band. It’s the doomsday scenario predicted by Harold Camping. Camping is one of the founders of <a href="http://www.familyradio.com/index2.html" target="_blank">Family Radio</a>, and he says the scripture backs up his prediction.<br> <br> Calling the date of the end times could be considered blasphemous or spot on. To find out which category this prediction fell into, <em>Eight Forty-Eight</em> turned to biblical scholar <a href="http://www.moody.edu/edu_facultyprofile.aspx?id=5468" target="_blank">Dr. Charlie Dyer</a>. Dyer’s a professor at large at Moody Bible Institute, and also hosts the radio show <a href="http://www.moodyradio.org/thelandandthebook/" target="_blank">The Land and the Book</a>.</p></p> Thu, 19 May 2011 13:23:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/episode-segments/2011-05-19/biblical-scholar-explains-what-scripture-says-about-end-times-86751
