Question 383

Does the Greek church believe in the harpazo or rapture Will the good Christians be taken of the planet for the marriage of the lamb To avoid Gods wrath?    

 

 

Answer to Question 383

 

 Not in the same way that JW or Evangelicals believe in the rapture. We will not be separated from the unbelievers and taken up to heaven while the rest will be left to suffer the tribulations of the last days. We believe that only with the Second Coming of Christ will there be a separation of the good from the bad as Christ tells us in the Parable of the Last Judgement (Matthew 25:31-46)
