Christian airline pilots being paired with non-Christian ones in case of rapture-Fiction!
Airlines Schedule Christian Pilots with Non-Christian Crew in Case the Christian Disappears in the “Rapture”–Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
Some airline companies schedule Christian pilots along with non-Christian pilots in case the Biblical “rapture” takes place and the Christian pilot suddenly disappears.
There is no evidence of this and there are a couple of problems with the eRumor.
One is that not all Christians believe in the sudden, unexpected disappearance of Christians in a rapture.
The other is that in order for an airline to make this policy, there not only needs to be agreement within the company on the theology of a rapture, but there also needs to be a company standard as to who is or is not a Christian. Can you imagine the fallout from that? “Joe, you are flying with Fred today because you’re obviously not going to heaven.”
