AUSTIN, TEXAS - A young man playing Halo 5 thought the rapture occurred when his friend suddenly disappeared in the middle of a game of 'Capture the Flag'.
"My friends and I from youth group go online every Tuesday night and we play Halo 5 together. We had been playing for a few hours when Will, our only friend that takes church and Jesus seriously, suddenly disappeared from the middle of our game."
"We were in the middle of an intense match when all of a sudden, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, Will's character started to glitch out and change - then he vanished up into the air and was gone. We started to freak out. We started to cry out, 'Will are you there? Why have you left us?''
"Will never leaves unexpectedly like this, especially not right in the middle of his favorite game type. He loves Halo and would never leave it or forsake it. Then we thought to ourselves, 'Did the rapture just occur?' O man, did we miss the rapture? Have we been left behind?"
"We quickly tried to message him on Xbox Live, but he was not online. He just vanished. We called his cell phone and were relieved when he picked up the phone. As it turns out, it wasn't the rapture, his mom just turned off his Xbox because he was playing it too long."
