Sometime after the Y2K non-event, I decided that I wasn’t much confident of a “rapture” any time soon – I’d seen Hal Lindsey’s predictions fail repeatedly, I’d seen the “ten nation union” grow to over twenty, and other signs that things weren’t looking quite like they should be for a “rapture” to take place.
As I grew to recognize that Jesus is coming back for a mature church – and we aren’t there yet – started looking at other alternative eschatologies. It finally clicked when I read Raptureless by Jonathan Welton. I now view that rapture as fully discredited.
Benjamin Corey wrote a great article on Ten movies that were more biblical than Left Behind”. I hope it informs and entertains you.
