Nonsense. The Rapture is an American principle not included in the Catholic teachings. And it is not in the Bibleit is supposedly implied in some texts, yet it's as moronic as your ability to read and comprehend the Bible.<quoted text>
If a person says they are a Christian and do not believe in the Rapture, I believe they have a problem! The Rapture is not a new concept. It is in the Bible!(it is just the word rapture that is not in the Bible.....the concept is)
The Bible makes it very clear.
The Rapture is an American concept founded by the late-late John Darby in around 1830 or so. You and your ilk are one of the reasons why Americans do not believe in anythingyou have the tendency to make up scriptures as you go, change the text on a dime, and then bitch and moan when no one believes a word you say.
Most Christians do not believe in the Rapture. I am one. Deal with reality, and get your minister to teach more than just the Darby Chronicles of Nonsense.
