Do not take the rapture in vain
My name is Bruce Feltcher. I’ve lived in Niles since July 1, 1937.
I was in the excavating business for 48 years, as a sewer and septic specialist.
The insinuation of the cartoon about the rapture, President Donald Trump and the religious right that ran on the opinion page on Jan. 18 was, in my opinion, about as low as you can get, and was despicable.
In my years in the excavating business, I took great pride in my name and reputation. I feel now that America’s reputation and name is on the line.
I was born on May, and I was born again at 7:25 p.m. March 13, 1955. Before I became a Christian, I was known personally by the majority of the Niles Police Department. Afterwards, I became personal friends with most of them, and in particular with Chief Rears.
As a believer in Jesus Christ, it’s time we Christians speak out against such trash as that cartoon.
While Trump has said and done some things that are not to my liking, he may be the greatest gift that God could have given since our Founding Fathers. Time will tell.
We, as believers, must take a stand. Stand up for what is right, holy and good for us. Christians and Christian principles may be the greatest assets that America has, but must be acted upon by our voices, loud and clear.
If Trump lied about something, then we need to confront him. If not, so be it.
Finally, the rapture is as pure as the sunrise in the morning, and Jesus Christ will not delay.
God bless American and our Niles community.
