Call To Discernment

Calling Christians to Biblical Christianity. Christians must have discernment in all areas of life in this end time of deception, realizing also that American leadership of both political parties are leading us into the New World Order of the coming antichrist. Do not be conformed to this world. Rom. 12:2. Expose the deeds of darkness. Eph. 5:11. "He that is not zealous against error, is not likely to be zealous for truth." J.C.

7:28 PM - The Rapture Trap?

Every once in a while a magic lever gets pulled releasing a wave of criticism against the pretrib rapture belief and pretribbers. Lately, Facebook and YouTube have been full of anti-pretrib proclamations.

One critic recently claimed it was the belief in an imminent rapture which is why Christians don't care what happens to the world. He added that this belief is what keeps us from the being the salt and light we were intended to be.

Then Chuck Baldwin decided to "recant" on Facebook. He repented of the "pre-millennial rapture". I guess he meant pretribulational. Anyway, he wrote:

"For too long, many of our pre-millennial friends have been using a belief in the Rapture as an excuse to sit back on their blessed assurance and do nothing. Even if the doctrine is true, the way it is being used as an excuse to not engage the liberty fight is downright shameful."

I'm all for protecting civil liberties within the framework of the law and the Bible. Yet I wonder where Baldwin gets his data demonstrating that pretribulationism, in particular, is hampering his cause.
