In fact, you would have to look long and hard to find the word ‘rapture’ in the Bible… it’s simply
not there. Nor is any clear description or explanation of the rapture. Which is probably due to the fact that the whole concept
was invented by a renegade Irish Anglican priest with strange ideas and strong convictions, less than 200 years ago.
A man whose beliefs, one could argue, are largely responsible for the current state of affairs in the Middle East.
