    The Church I mean the litteral Church building will rise to the heavens along with the believers inside them.

    Some fringe Christianity based sect believe that. They are mocked and gets called spaceship Christians.

    I consider myself a liberal and a catholic. You shouldn't let others convince you that your religious beliefs should reflect your political preferences and vice versa.

    I don't know about that above bs.

    It's the removal of the believers. And it's not some levitational bullshit or buildings being removed . It's the immediate removal at the twinkling of an eye.

    One moment you'll see someone standing next to you and the next moment they will be gone.

    I personally don't believe there ever was a "works dispensation". Before Jesus how were people saved? By faith.

    Romans 4:3:

    What does Scripture say? "Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness."

    ...before Jesus people looked forward to the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ...we are now in the era where we look back on the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for salvation. That's my opinion anyhow.

    I know a few liberal Christians. The one's I'm thinking about are highly educated (PHDs in the sciences), they accept evolution and climate change. I'm agnostic myself and I don't understand how they manage to compartmentalize their beliefs, but whatever works for them. They aren't preachy and I don't have a problem with it.

    If you live a good life, regardless of political leaning, and God won't let you into Heaven, that's on Him.

    Every single religion HAS to pick and choose the scriptures and teachings of their holy books and figures to fit in with their worldview. It's been that way for literally thousands of years.

    So yes, the Bible and Christianity can be picked and chosen to support liberal, even radical, ideas the same way they can be picked and chosen to support the most retrograde and reactionary politics.

    there's a really shitty fighting game out now where you can play as jesus

    just a bunch of gods from different religions doing battle

    jesus tears himself off the cross and beats the shit out of people wearing broken wood on his forearms

    you can suplex moses

    you maybe shouldn't buy the game and give the devs your money but it's at least worth looking up on youtube

    He's being a kind human being like the mythical Jesus you worship. No judgement or promotion just compassion something you know nothing about.

    Do you recall which one? I know for a fact this is not Catholic Doctrine. Pre-tribulation Rapture is actually considered a heresy. (Go figure) :rolleyes:
