(VIDEO) Audience Member Stumps Thomas Ice with Question at a Debate | Midwest Prophecy Conference, Calvary Chapel, Lafayette, IN

There was a recent debate at the pretrib 2017 Midwest Prophecy Conference, Calvary Chapel, Lafayette, IN: “Is the return of the Lord imminent?” between Dr. David Lehman and Dr. Tommy Ice. Both debate participants are pretrib; the former, however, denies imminence and attempted to argue that you can deny imminence and affirm pretribulationism. This is […]

Only “saints” that are pretribulationally raptured before the seven-year period will be exempt from God’s wrath! Those “tribulational saints” who “grew up in […]

Greg Laurie: Letting go of the Gospel of Christ, but white-knuckling his pretribulational theology

Go figure. Greg Laurie’s Continuing Slide Into Apostasy  

No Signs but Signs – A Major Inconsistency on Imminency with Pretrib Teachers

Pretribulational eschatology teaches that the rapture is “signless” or “unannounced,” while the second coming will be preceded by signs and thus “announced.” There cannot be any intervening prophetic events or signs that will occur before the rapture. Hence, it can happen at any moment. If just a single, biblical, prophesied event happens before the rapture, […]

A Glaring Contradiction in Calvary Chapel’s Pastor Jack Hibbs Pretribulational Rapture

I could cite many other pretribulational teachers committing this all-so-common inconsistency in their rapture theology. But I will use Jack Hibb’s statement as representative. On a recent program of Jan Markell’s Understanding the Times with Jan Markell, her guest Jack Hibbs repeatedly stressed the “imminency” of the rapture that he claims will be “unannounced” that […]

He believes the church will be raptured before the Antichrist emerges. He painfully confuses the event of the Antichrist’s great tribulation with the day of the Lord’s judgment. I pointed […]

Calvary Chapel Pastor David Guzik Cancels Plans for the Rapture Debate

Last year, Calvary Chapel Santa Barbara Pastor David Guzik communicated to me his willingness to participate in a public moderated rapture debate: Pre-trib vs. Pre-wrath. Some of you wanted to know what the status of it is. I am sorry to announce that it will not happen. Guzik and I were planning a debate in […]

Greg Laurie DENIES the Imminent Rapture of the Church

http://www.christianpost.com/news/greg-laurie-no-question-these-are-the-end-times-americas-role-as-superpower-will-diminish-as-new-world-order-forms-130582/ Pretrib teachers are notorious for committing a major contradiction in their system. On one side of their mouth they believe in the “any moment” (i.e. imminent) rapture of God’s people, which means, according to their own definition, there cannot be any prophesied events that must occur before the rapture. Then on the other side […]

A Rapture Debate Challenge for Pastor David Guzik of Calvary Chapel Santa Barbara

[Second update: Calvary Chapel Pastor David Guzik Cancels Plans for the Rapture Debate] [Update: Mr. Guzik contacted me and expressed an openness for a debate.
