Rapture.

In the interest of moving things past the annoying "ZOMG people are BASHING my BELEIFS *sob*" drama, I've got some random debate topics to let people get PO'd about instead...

Do you believe in it? Pre-trib, post-trib? And WHY?

  • No. The reason I don't is for the simple fact that when these things were written they spoke of happening soon...not happening centuries from now. Also, I don't take much about someone's dreams. sometimes they mean the exact opposite. Secondly, the rapture from what I understand wasn't believed until much later

  • I believe in A rapture (which simply means caught up) of the Christian church.

    I do NOT believe in a "pre-trib" rapture - the Scripture says much about the idea of the rapture (it doesn't use the word) but also never gives mention about timing except in Revelation where it says that it will happen "at the last trumpet." The last trumpet is also when the Judgement happens. So I believe that the rapture will happen when Christ returns.

  • I don't believe in a rapture per se. I am a amillennialist  I don't believe Revelations is necessarily referring to the future.

  • i believe in it but i really am not sue when it will happen. the reason i believe in it is mostly fear. i would rather believe i will be spared at least some of the bad stuff then believe im going to stick around till the world explodes or whatever. lol

  • I believe in a pre-trib Rapture and there are many, many Scriptures to support it.

  • The "z" was originally a mistake while attempting to hit the shift key with the left hand, and type "OMG" hence ZOMG
    ANYWAY..
