argh, Here is my problem with modern christianity. How is there 100s of different types of churchs? Every group has their own specific beiefs. Everyone is different.
what makes your specific version correct? Its so silly that people manipulate the bible to fit what they believe.
Christians are so arrogant and its incredibly off putting. They can't prove that their version is right yet if you believe a slightly different belief you are wrong.
It doesn't really say anything positive about modern religion. It alls seems a bit sick to me.
By having hundred if not thousands of versions doesn't it dillute any validity of christianity?

Like I said, there's only one true Christianity and that's the one that follows what the Bible says.

Thanks for replying without the preaching. Its nice to have a converstaion with someone that isnt comlpetely defensive right off the bat because someone questions there beliefs.
I understand that after Jesus died on the cross it is believed that the promise of gods people "expanded" to all those who believed in Jesus Christ, but it is apparent the fact that it is taught all through the old testament that Gods "people" are the Jews. It is pretty emphatic about that. So, if the rapture is biblical I would think it would have some sort of role in the old testament, maybe some vision by Joseph?. Again, my opinion is that those who like to look at the Bible from a pure literal perspective seem to have the hardest time being able to justify some of the contradictions between the new and old testament.
Also, if you look at the book of revalations, historical scholars and theologians alike are more inclined to look at the period near jesus' death as the timeframe for the tribulation and armageddon style scenario. So unless the rapture has already taken place, I wouldnt be holding my breathe for it to happen anytime soon.
No, I was aking how do you know which books to believe?
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness...
Since they do not support each other in this rapture contraversy. This is somewhat rhetorical now that i know you are Christian.
