What Is the Rapture?


Question:†††† Referring to Bible prophecy, how do you reconcile some of the teachings of the church such as the rapture and that only Christians will be saved and all others lost?


Answer:†††††† I can answer one portion of that quite readily. I would say that a person who lives Christís philosophy is a Christian regardless of his parentsí religion or heritage or in what part of the world he resides. Whether or not you have ever heard of Christ, if you live by Christís commandments, you are a Christian. You can pray to God by any one of a thousand names, and He still hears you and answers.
