Eschatology 201 Guidelines

This area of the forum is primarily for Christian theists to discuss orthodox views of Eschatology. Other theist participation is welcome within that framework, but only within orthodoxy. Posts from nontheists that do not promote atheism or seek to undermine the faith of others will be permitted at the Moderator's discretion - such posters should contact the area moderators before posting.


Without turning this forum into a 'hill of foreskins' (Joshua 5:3), I believe we can still have fun with this 'sensitive' topic.

However, don't be misled, dispensationalism has only partly to do with circumcision issues. So, let's not forget about Innocence, Conscience, Promises, Kingdoms and so on.

End time -isms within orthodox Christianity also discussed here. Clearly unorthodox doctrines, such as those advocating "pantelism/full preterism/Neo-Hymenaeanism" or the denial of any essential of the historic Christian faith are not permitted in this section but can be discussed in Comparative Religions 101 without restriction. Any such threads, as well as any that within the moderator's discretions fall outside mainstream evangelical belief, will be moved to the appropriate area.

Millennialism- post-, pre- a-

Futurism, Historicism, Idealism, and Preterism, or just your garden variety Zionism.

From the tribulation to the anichrist. Whether your tastes run from Gary DeMar to Tim LaHaye or anywhere in between, your input is welcome here.

OK folks, let's roll!

  • Articles on the Rapture for disproving it?

    Does anyone have any links to articles proving the Rapture is not Biblical? Thanks.

    The Bible disproves the concept quite well. (That is, supposing by "the Rapture" you mean something like the secret "Rapture" of the church as taught by dispensationalists.)

      Yes, secret rapture. The problem is some use the Bible to prove a secret rapture, I need articles disproving a secret rapture.

        I consider myself a dispensationalist but I have never heard a "Secret Rapture" taught. Is it "exactly what it says on the tin?" Because if so, it seems pretty silly to me. I don't think most will understand the real significance of the Rapture, but that doesn't mean it will go unnoticed.
        Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith? -Galatians 3:5

          Yeah, don't think it could happen secretly. If it did happen. Maybe claiming a high incidence of missing persons?
          If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

            Just out of curiosity, wouldn't you prefer Scriptures that revealed the Truth, rather than seeking some that "disprove" something?

              I really do need an amen button, brother.

                I figure if there is a rapture, it's gotta be a secret. Even God doesn't know about it.

                    I am personally amazed how pervasive the error of "the secret rapture" is in the church.
