Belief in the Rapture has a lot of similarities to belief in the Easter Bunny and Father Christmas and demonstrates a similar degree of intellectual rigour.
In fact, the similarities between belief in the Rapture and belief in Father Christmas are striking.
Children are told that Father Christmas brings toys to good children but not to naughty ones.
Pentecostalists are told that good people will be transported physically to heaven, while sinful people will not.
