''One Will Be Taken, One Will Be Left'' - An Examination of the Pre-Trib Rapture

10 months

This lesson focuses on discussing the Christian doctrine of the Pre-Millennial secret rapture. This doctrine suggests that before Christ's final return, there will be a secret event in which the church is taken to heaven, as made famous by the popular "Left Behind" books and movies. The church has upheld this belief for many years, even though there is no direct mention of a secret rapture in the Bible. The scripture is often cited to defend the secret rapture doctrine: "One will be taken, and one will be left." This verse is often used by believers of the doctrine as a proof text. Pastor Shane Vaughn from First Harvest Ministries examines whether the verse "one will be taken and one will be left" supports the commonly interpreted doctrine. The truth will astound you as we present an alternative interpretation of the verse, suggesting that it might convey a different meaning from what has traditionally been believed.
