RAPTURE Theology and America's election of evildoers...Submitted by PatriotsUnderGod on Mon, 12/03/2012 - 12:04
I have mentioned this peppered into some of my earlier posts, specifically how the "Left Behind" dogma has paralyzed the "Christian right" so much so that ignorant(or hypocritical) Southern Baptists in South Carolina voted for the Baptist-converted-to-catholicism Newt Gingrich OVER Ron Paul back in there primary; to perhaps prove the point that dumbed-down Christians simply do not care enough about the solemn charge of our founders as to our responsibility to place ONLY men of high moral character in public office, over obviously vile and ignorant hypocrites and outright haters of God.
The fruit of the Left Behind Hollywood buzz for the past decade can now be clearly seen....it basically has professing Christians content to DO NOTHING about choosing "good government" to rule over them, because, Jesus is gonna come back and take us out of here when the suffering(which we COULD actually buffer) gets too much to bear for "God's chosen".
Anyway, recently I came across this sermon, where this bold lead Pastor of a church by Fort Bragg held a discussion asking "where is the rapture found in Christ's Olivet Discourse?"
I think they have some very VALID scriptural arguments in asking how did the second coming of Christ get split into two separate events, with a 7 year gap inbetween; and how did every church "father" miss this before either Darby or Scofield find this within the past 200 years?
The fact of the matter is, "good men" are doing NOTHING to throw off evil in our nation's politics, most likely because not only are they serving SELF and money rather than our Creator at the moment; but, because lazily they think Jesus is gonna come back and smite all of His enemies like they see on the silver screen....when in fact, God's people always go down with the ship when we ignore His warnings and His commands to REPENT and turn from our wicked ways....
I believe in the Second Coming, but I also believe we're gonna be here through the Tribulation period based on what I have seen in the last decade of lazy Christians and their lack of study and discernment. Have a listen if you're interested...
