Bad Eschatology, Part 4 – Pretrib History

The Pretribulation Rapture theory arises from an honest mistake and a corrupt fable – at a time when advances in printing made crazy ideas accessible. Books were the Internet of their time, and an information-starved populace couldn’t get enough. And, when Scofield put Dispensationalism everywhere in his ‘study bible’, it was the final blow.

The Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Christian Science, Seventh Day Adventism, Communism, Eugenics, Darwin’s Theory of Evolution, and the Flat Earth movement – all owe their rise to the steam-powered printing press and a 19th century desire for a good story.

Rick Wiles Cannot be a Christian

I can’t believe that I had to write that as the title. But, what I heard over the past few days, leads me to make that statement.

I would love to believe that he has just gone insane, or that his hatred of the Jews and Israel has consumed his mental faculties. But, I can’t make that assumption. The evidence from his own mouth condemns him, and I do not have any other way to think about this.

No follower of Christ deliberately lies about another Christian – especially, in an attempt to deceive other Christians.

I certainly welcome your thoughts on this, once I have laid out what I have seen and heard.

How Long is the Tribulation?

Christians have been talking about the Great Tribulation from the moment that Christ proclaimed its coming. It will be the most horrifying and awful moment in time, since the beginning of Creation. It will be so bad, that you would rather die than go through it.

That is COMPLETELY understandable.

Likewise, it is completely understandable to want to know how long the Great Tribulation is. If you are going to go through it, you’d like to know how long it will last.

Horrible times are always more bearable, when you know when they will end.

The Rapture Verdict – A Review

I’m always on the lookout for those who transcend the constraints of popular thought and allow the Holy Spirit to direct their understanding of the Last Days. I have found very, very few who have enough of that ‘Last Days’ understanding to be able to give them more than the briefest of mentions.

Well, I can now say that I’ve found one name that is worthy of great commendation:

Michael Snyder

I bought his latest book – The Rapture Verdict – a few days ago, and blasted through it. I wanted to see if I could recommend it to you.

I am glad to say that I can.

WEEKEND SHOCKCAST: The Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie

I really wish that the Pre-Tribulation Rapture wasn’t a Lie. I really do. I wish that we didn’t have to go through three and a half years of extreme persecution. I wish that being a Christian meant that life was a serene experience of clear skies and smooth sailing.

Unfortunately, those of us who wish to live holy and righteous lives in Christ, WILL suffer persecution (2 Tim 3:12). When Paul wrote that to Timothy, he wasn’t thinking of the persecution that you and I have experienced – frowns, disapproval and lost jobs. No, he was referring to the persecution that Christians are experiencing right now in the Arab world – such as with ISIS and Boko Haram.
