Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
It’s hard to believe but because of one tiny pebble on an old dirt road, thousands of Christians believe in the Rapture. Pro tip, it’s not canon.
The rapture is an eschatological concept of certain Christians, particularly within branches of North American evangelicalism,
Adherents of this perspective are sometimes referred to as premillenial dispensationalists, but amongst them there are differing viewpoints about the exact timing of the event.
The term is most frequently used among Christian theologians and fundamentalist Christians in the United States.
Though the term “rapture” is derived from the text of the Latin Vulgate of 1 Thess. 4:17—”we will be caught up”, (Latin: rapiemur), Catholics, as well as Eastern Orthodox, Anglicans, Lutherans and most Reformed Christians, do not generally use “rapture” as a specific theological term, nor do any of these bodies subscribe to the premillennialist dispensationalist theological views associated with its use
Pre-tribulation rapture theology originated in the eighteenth century, with the Puritan preachers Increase and Cotton Mather, and was popularized extensively in the 1830s by John Nelson Darby and the Plymouth Brethren, and further in the United States by the wide circulation of the Scofield Reference Bible in the early 20th century.
Scofield was an alcoholic district attorney who was paid money to re-write the Bible into a corrupted version called the Scofield Bible.
In 1871, Scofield was elected to the Kansas House of Representatives, first from Atchison for one year and then from Nemaha County for a second. In 1873 he worked for the election of John J. Ingalls as senator from Kansas, and when Ingalls won, the new senator had Scofield appointed U. S. District Attorney for Kansas—at 29, the youngest in the country. Nevertheless, that same year Scofield was forced to resign “under a cloud of scandal” because of questionable financial transactions, that may have included accepting bribes from railroads, stealing political contributions intended for Ingalls, and securing bank promissory notes by forging signatures. It is possible Scofield was jailed on forgery charges, although there is no extant evidence in the public records.
He was also a bad Christian for divorcing his wife.
Perhaps in part because of his self-confessed heavy drinking, Scofield abandoned his wife and two daughters during this period. Leontine Cerrè Scofield divorced him on grounds of desertion in 1883, and the same year Scofield married Hettie Hall von Wartz, with whom he eventually had a son
John Nelson Darby (18 November 1800 – 29 April 1882) was an Anglo-Irish Bible teacher, one of the influential figures among the original Plymouth Brethren and the founder of the Exclusive Brethren. He is considered to be the father of modern Dispensationalism and Futurism. Pre-tribulation rapture theology was popularized extensively in the 1830s by John Nelson Darby and the Plymouth Brethren, and further popularized in the United States in the early 20th century by the wide circulation of the Scofield Reference Bible.
Here’s the critical part that Darby tacked on that forever corrupted the way that Christianity is taught to Evangelicals in the US.
And over time, people just assumed that he was referring to a PHYSICAL AREA OF LAND with all the bells and commercialist accoutrements it comes with, instead of the original meaning which was THE CHURCH. The people who believe in Jesus.
It finally happened. Somebody called this blog anti smitic. If only people would read the facts and dive deep into real world events.
-The cruel treament of Palestinians is something that is consistently addressed by the United Nations.
-The International Criminal Court acknowledges that Israel is responsible for hundreds of crimes against humanity.
-Haaretz and even the NYTimes confirm that AIPAC has an unmistakeable control on American politics.
-Al Jazeera has an internationally recognized documentary on how Israeli spies bribe politicians in the UK and in the US.
The truth hurts, and accusations of anti smitism is how they try to censor it.
