The Pretribulation Rapture

Comments by Dale Moody

Dale Moody On The Pretribulation Rapture:

"Belief in a Pretribulational Rapture contradicts all three chapters in the New Testament that mention the Tribulation and the Rapture together (Mark 13:24-27; Matt. 24:26-31; 2 Thess. 2:1-12).

The theory is so biblically bankrupt that the usual defense is made using three passages that do not even mention a Tribulation (John 14:3; 1 Thess. 4:17; 1 Cor. 15:52). These are important passages, but they have not had one word to say about a Pretribulational Rapture. 

The score is 3 to 0, three passages for a Post-tribulational Rapture and three that say nothing on the subject1."
