One of the most dangerous doctrines of our time is on the rise among the world of professed Christendom. That is the doctrine of the Post – Tribulation Rapture fallacy. While eschatological issues are rarely points of division, for good reason, this particular doctrine, in my estimation, is undercutting the urgent message of the gospel, and I believe needs to be biblically, and accurately refuted wherever it is met.
I know that there are good men, saved men, Godly men, who have erroneously believed this false doctrine and are exporting it to the ears of their hearers as fast and furiously as they can. While it is true that, as my favorite preacher used to say, “we are not on the program committee, but we are on the welcome wagon”; some things about eschatology are clear enough, to be sure enough and settled enough, to be confident about.
I will be the first to admit that there is a very large portion of the end time events that we must stand softly on, because of the nature of our imperfect understanding. However, the issue of the rapture is not one of them.
In my next post, I will explain why I believe the Post-Trib problem is a dangerous doctrine, and why the Pre-Tribulation Rapture is a confident fact.
Moving from the wrong one to the right one will definitely be a change worth making!
