Leaving Behind Left Behind (#2)

Craig Keener:
Many people in these churches take for granted that this [Left Behind theology] is what the Bible teaches. They may be surprised to discover that no biblical text specifically and unambiguously mentions believers being removed before the final tribulation. . . . Passages in the Bible do teach that Jesus will return, that he will gather his followers, and that he will bring justice by punishing those who chose evil rather than truth. . . . But no unambiguous passage supports Christians being "raptured" before the tribulation.
Read the rest here.
