It’s not that they think the rapture will happen.
It’s that they are worried that it won’t.
A lot of US churches teach a version of the rapture that leads many suburbanites to believe that they will go straight from their air-conditioned houses or their air-conditioned SUVs to heaven.
There are persecuted Christian groups in other parts of the planet who have been looking for an imminent rescue for a century or more....
The stealing away will only come when all is fulfilled, and I believe most of us who remain will have been severely tested and refined by fire.
Only those who are willing to lay down their lives for their faith will find life.
Or that it won't happen in their lifetime as they have been predicting for so long.
