Excellent post. It is so sad to see that many Christians get their end time theology from The Left Behind series which are just fictional books. I was once rebuked by a Christian for not studying the books. They are false teaching. I see the end times happening just as predicted in Matthew 24. I believe we are at the beginning of sorrows. There is no pretrib rapture in there, therefore, I do not believe in it either. It is a real twist of the holy scriptures.
