    • I was wondering if the Rapture would unite Christianity and Judaism by combining the Jewish wait for an earthly Messiah with the second coming of Christ. In that event, would all be saved?

    The word rapture appears nowhere in the Bible, you'd think something so important would at least be mentioned once

    In fact it was near unheard of until the 1830's

    Doesn't matter. Religious nuts were making up shit and foisting it on well meaning believers long before that. One of the best money making schemes EVAH!!!

    The idea is there. It’s mentioned in a number of places. However, I think a lot of Christians have been misled to believe in the pre-trib rapture. That particular idea is not biblical, iyam...but it does happen, at the end, when Jesus returns.
