Rapture Take Me Away?

Q:  Rapture or false doctrine?                    

This is not the actual Rapture but a simulation.

I have long been suspicious of the “rapture” or escape of God’s people, which is a belief where true believers will leave this world before anything really bad happens.  It was in the early 1990’s when I first learned of such a belief.  In fact, it was a religious person who told me about it and let me read a book on it. I remember the book was written in the 1980’s and laced with anxiety.  One chapter ended in a terrifying climax.  It went something like, 1984 could very well be the last year we’re on this planet!  Sorry, I can’t quote it or remember the title or author but after reading that nearly a decade later it was hard for me to take “the Rapture doctrine” seriously.

EndTimePilgrim.org provides information that may be the answer.  On this site is an enlightening article from Corrie Ten Boom, which tells of what happened to the Chinese who believed in the doctrine of a rapture before the tribulation.

  1. There are so many things like the rapture that Christians debate and worry about. I wonder if many simply take up our time and thoughts and prevent us focusing on what really matters, loving our neighbour and loving God. Perhaps the most important thing is to be able to live without knowing the answer, perhaps that is part of what ‘faith’ means?
