Take a fascinating journey with us as we examine the shocking origins of the secret, pre-tribulation rapture doctrine. You will be amazed as we look into admissions by pre-tribulation leaders who admit that the theory is without clear biblical and historical merit. Join us as we discover the origins of this relatively new doctrine, explore its possible origins among mystics, Jesuits and theologians, and how this doctrine was ultimately disseminated throughout the church. You will be surprised by our stunning conclusion.
Even the leading proponents of the pre-trib theory admit, as we note in this documentary, that there’s not one clear verse, not one clear passage in all of the bible, that actually teaches the secret pre-tribulation rapture theory. In fact, many of the leading proponents further admit that the early church fathers in the first 300 years of church history knew nothing of a secret pre-tribulation rapture. It is vital to examine this relatively new doctrine; what if we are going to go through the tribulation? What if millions of Christians are under the illusion that we’re going to escape that time and are not ready to enter into it? Because of this concern it’s important that we examine this new doctrine. However, we also need to iterate that this is not something that we should divide fellowship over as Christians, because we recognize that this is an in-house debate. There are wonderful, beautiful, good Christians on both sides of the issue in this debate.
