There is a Minneapolis group called the Pretty Good Bluegrass Band. “Pretty good” is about as far as any of us should judge themselves.
I wrote a blog way back I thought was “pretty good.” It was about the various views on what would happened at the Rapture. One view is Jesus will float down, gather the good people and float back up with them.
The other view is Jesus will float down, stay a while, gather the good people and float back up. I made light of all this Jesus floating.
One of the critics of that blog said the Bible does not refer to floating, so I was off base to make fun of it. Today, I received confirmation there are Bible-based Pastors who think Jesus floats.
Every few months we get a tabloid from a local Baptist church. The preacher fills it with the Biblical citations we see from literalists. He cites Acts 1: 10-11 which is about Jesus’ return to heaven after he died temporarily.
The preacher elaborates with a narrative that includes “…as He nears the edge of the celestial city slowly floating in…” Then, he wrote of a”…deafening noise in heaven when Jesus touched down..”
We know there is no gravity where our space ships travel. Since Jesus “touched down” we learn there is gravity in heaven.
If you believe Acts 10, a Jesus going back and forth, you have to believe in what I would call “the literal floatation.” I suppose I’ll be criticized again.
