I do kinda 'hate the rapture', also. It just gives people a false hope that we will not suffer any persecution.
Some in the Baptist realm need to read 2 Timothy 3:12 and think a bit....
Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
Well, sorry to say this but if a person were living for the Lord today they truly would understand persecution far more than any other human on earth.
