Whether the Rapture is real or not, one thing I’m sure of–crouching under the pews waiting for it benefits no one but the Enemy.
So many of my friends and family, and fellow servants in Christ’s household, believe in the Rapture. And many do not. Some great theologians accept it. Other great theologians reject it.
I can’t find any support for this doctrine in the Bible. It ought to be there, in both Testaments. But fighting over this with other Christians is hardly a good use of our time on earth. God has richly endowed us with real enemies who want to wipe out the Church everywhere.
“Occupy until I come” (Luke 19:13), as taught by Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, remains the best procedure.
