But has it changed and if so, whodid it? Go to, type in "Is modesty an issue in the church today?" (Adv.)

Many Christians have little understanding of the idea of"the rapture." Rapture means being caught up or taken up. The idea behind the rap- ture comes from 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17. In part, it reads, "the Lord Himself will come down from Heaven; those who have died in Christ will be the first to rise, and only after that shall we who remain alive be taken up in the clouds, together with them, to meet the Lord in the air." The rapture is closely linked with the Second Coming of Christ and the tribulation, Matthew 24:29-31. Joined with other passages in Daniel and Revelation, we end up with an irresistible soup of various opinions i and beliefs about how and when these events will unfold. The idea that Christ will come again is a hallmark of the Christian faith. The earliest followers believed it, prayed for it, and hoped that He would come. Saints and mystics speak of the second coming with a long- ing and a desire. But always, those of past ages seem to speak a lan- guage of love, even to the point that it will be our love and prayers that will hasten His return. Some of the "end times" talk that I hear today seems to be based upon people's fear, or even to instill fear. Fear sells books. Fear gets people to act. Fear even gets people to go to church. I remember after 9/11, church attendance went way up for a month or two. Will Jesus come again? Certainly. When will He come again? I don't know. How will He come? I don't know that either. But I do know that Christ is not about fear. When He came the first time, He did not gather people to Himself with fear or hate, but rather, He used love. When He comes into the heart of the average person today, it is love that draws the person to Him. So, when we speak of the end of time, we cannot forget the love of Christ is far greater than our fear. The love of Christ trans- forlYIS. Do you remember the story in Genesis about Joseph arid his broth- ers? Joseph's father loved him more than his brothers. The brothers hated Joseph for this and first decided to kill him, then sold him into slav- ery. Later, Joseph is chosen and he becomes great in the land of Egypt. His wisdom saves a multitude of people from a seven year famine, in- cluding his brothers. He doesn't hold their sin against them: Corrie Ten Boom comes to mind. After World War II, and after her lib- :i. eration from a Nazi death camp, she traveled throughout Europe speak- ing about Christ. After one engagement, she was approached by a prison guard that had mistreated her. She wrote about her experience. She did- n't know how she did it, but she extended her hand, she shook the hand of this troubled man and shared with him the love of Christ.  Nelson Mandella is another modem figure that exemplifies Christ's o I love. Preparing for his inauguration as president of South Africa, he sent I invitations to his prison guards. He wanted to share the experience with them. Whether or not you believe in the rapture and some of the end times discussion, Christ's last coming will be no different than the first coming. We could even say that when Jesus comes, it won't be so much that He es WITH love, it will be Love Himself who comes. OL /" ":, Peace be with you.

New in Mystery and Detective is Barry Grant's "Sherlock Holmes and the Shakespeare Letter". The original super-sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, is back on the case. Having emerged from a Swiss glacier and solved his first mur- der case in more than 95 years, the world's most famous detective now sleuths through modern London seek- ing a stolen letter purportedly written by Shakespeare. But as Holmes and his roommate, James Wilson, track the letter and its terrorist dealers to a Scot- tish castle, where a myriad of surprises await, Holmes fears that his "resuscita- tion" process may be flawed, and his mind disintegrating.
