The rich romans would confess their sins to a man in a private booth, and then "tithe" to avoid punishments what a joke the catholic church is. [/quote] I am not Catholic, I have never ever study that religion. I don't understand why they ask forgiveness from a priest vs Jesus himself. [/quote] The Catholic Church has never endorsed Rapture theology. The notion of a "rapture" was an 1830 invention by one John Nelson Darby, an ex-Anglican (not a Jesuit and not Catholic at all) who misinterpreted 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 Saint Peter and all the other apostles, and all of their priest successors, were given the power by Christ Himself to forgive sins in His name. John 20: 21-23 The Catholic (meaning universal) Church was founded in 33A.D.by Jesus Christ, who placed St.Peter authority over the Church its first Pope. Matthew Chapter 16:18-19) There is an unbroken succession of popes from St. Peter to Pope Francis.Succession of popes http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/12272b.htmhttp://www.newadvent.org/cathen/12272b.htm All of the early Church Fathers were "Catholic". The Catholic Church compiled and canonized the Bible, in 397 A.D.. If you are a mainstream Protestant, your denomination derived from the Catholic Church.

I was brought up and raised on believe that we will have a rapture, God will come get his children to save them from the last days to protect us. It was brought to my attention today, that several people believe there will be a rapture, while others do not, SO WHICH IS IT?
