Listening to Alex Jones this morning he is accusing 501c3 companies that teach the rapture are the problem. So I need to address several issues here.
First most 501c3 corporations known as churches do not teach the rapture. They are mostly amilliniel or don't teach any eschatology. The true churches that have not become a 501c3 corporation. teach a rapture. What is a 501c3 corporation? It is a not for profit organization for purposes of making charitable contributions. Churches do not have to become one. Red Cross, and other non church affiliated organizations do.
The accusation is that if your church is a 501c3, then they have to take orders from the government to keep their tax exempt status. This is why churches are not allowed to endorse candidates for elections. I don't advise endorsing candidates anyway because they are all corrupt at some level. Ask Richard Nixon.
So what is going on with the Rapture theology? The rapture in many circles is taught wrong. I know I have heard it many times. "Before it gets really bad we are out of here". Jesus said in John 16:33, " that in this world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." So we need to be prepared for tribulation. Americans in this Laodecian society are very soft. We can't handle it it if someone puts a gun to our head and says deny Jesus or die.
The correct teaching is that we are to be engaged until he comes. When I was running track, I was told to keep going until you hit the finish tape. Many a race was lost in the last couple of yards when the one head relaxed. Keep going. Keep sharing the gospel. Keep writing your congressman. Keep attending your county party conventions. Stay engaged and stay informed. This is not a time to quit. 2 Thessalonians 2:7 tells us that he that letteth with let until he be taken out of the way. Until it is gone, we are to be a force of good in this world.
As I wrote in a previous article, we are to play until we here the whistle. Play until you hear the last trump. Don't let Alex Jones or anyone else influence your theology. Alex also believes that man is tens of thousands of years old and has evolved. The Bible clearly puts man at six thousand years. Get your theology from the Bible. Keep going.
