Message Subject Biblical Help Needed! Will there be a Rapture?
Poster Handle PerMariam
Post Content
The rapture as you know it was a money making scheme. 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.

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.
 Quoting: CrimsonTideGirl

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

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.
