The Rapture Exposed

The Book of Revelation

The Rapture Exposed

Wednesday evenings March 30 – May 11

Led by Pastor Mark

7:00 pm Conference Room

Returning after a Lenten hiatus, Wednesday evening lessons continue.

The idea of The Rapture’s the return of Christ to rescue and deliver Christians off the earth is an extremely popular interpretation of the Bible’s Book of Revelation. It’s also an interpretation based on a psychology of fear and destruction and guides the daily acts of thousands if not millions of people worldwide. In this study we will use Barbara Rossing’s book, The Rapture Exposed, to see that this script for the world’s future is nothing more than a disingenuous distortion of the Bible and that Revelation offers a vision of God’s healing love for the world. The weeks’ topics include:

  • The Destructive Racket of Rapture
  • The Invention of the Rapture
  • The Rapture Script for the Middle East
  • Prophesy and Apocalypse
  • The Journey Begins Rome’s Worship of Victory
  • Lamb Power
  • Nonviolence Conquering in Revelation
  • The Exodus Story in Revelation
  • Hijacking the Lamb Addiction to Wrath and War
  • Rapture in Reverse God’s Vision for Renewing the World
  • The Journey Outward Homecoming to the World
