I don't think I'm sheltered and feel blessed my parents brought me up in a SBC. I started posting and reading another Christian forum(only because this one is a bit slow at times) and feel blessed being able to come here and read posts from people whom I greatly admire, even though you don't know me. I read an eschatology forum there and am blown away that most people who post there aren't pretrib, and don't believe a rapture is even biblical. Don't get me wrong, I know there are some here who might hold to that too. But I never realized being a pre trib dispy was being in the minority. I see attacks, name calling and down right vitriol for pre trib views there. I'm not a theologian, but I've certainly studied my bible and read books and just can't see where they are coming from. I guess this thread is just kind of me venting, but I guess I never knew. Just want to say I love reading this messageboard and feel blessed to have found it and read the last few years.
