I went to register on a Protestant-oriented Christian forum once and it required registrants to pick one's end-time belief category on a list: Premillennialism, Preterism, Chiliasm, Post-tribulationism, Dispensationalism, etc. etc.

I justed wanted to pick "Normal", but that was not an option.

Someone on OC.net has probably come across that list.

I always find it interesting that Protestants so easily throw out elements of Christianity that are documentable back to the earliest centuries, such as veneration of saints, prayers for the departed, apostolic succession, holy tradition, etc., but that they can so easily accept as fact this rather recent teaching of the rapture that was unknown to early Christians.

In many (most?) cases they don't realize that it is recent. 

When you realize how much came from the likes of Finney (revivalism) and dispensationalism, it is astounding.  Most Evangelical Protestants don't realize how much of their heritage comes Ron the 19th century.

Rachel hasn't visited this forum since three months ago. I doubt that you'll get any kind of prompt response from her.

GOD ANGRY

The name of the link in the image; "Belief in an angry God now linked to mental illness"

I'm inclined to agree with this. heh.

Like that Calvin and Hobbes cartoon that I can't find right now, when Calvin imagines himself as a creator God who is evil and cruel. He was a strange child. lol.

Is it just me, or do Evangelicals and Fundies treat God like a rabid monster that needs to be pacified to get Him to do what they want (i.e. "bless them.") I mean, I got that vibe growing up, but heh.

Imagine if God didn't cause the ground to open up and suck people down, or turn them to salt, or have fire rain down on them, and instead they just disappeared. That's not nearly as good a story. Also, God is saving the disappearance stuff for the rapture.

Not.

Luke 24:31 Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight.

Acts 8:29 When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord suddenly took Philip away, and the eunuch did not see him again, but went on his way rejoicing.
