From Reverant to Student: A Dialogue

The New Oxford Review has a reply about the article I wrote on protestant rapture theology. The Editor gave me a chance to reply. Click on the link to read both the Reverend's comments about the article I wrote as well as my response to the reverend.

From my response:
I do not have any problems with the word"rapture." But I do have problems when people propose the Protestant view of the rapture based on misreadings and misunderstandings of Scripture. When read in the proper context, as with 1 Thes­salonians 4:17 and St. Paul's further explication in 1 Corinthians 15, it is clear that the rapture of which Paul speaks (being "caught up" or seized by Christ) is that moment when Christ gathers together the elect and the reprobate at the general resurrection at the end of time.

Me too, but I'd like to read it...my parents are big on that "rapture" stuff.
