    Rob, don't you think that the intent of scripture is that Christians WILL understand these things? The book of Revelation says that it's intent is to "SHOW" the servants of God what will happen, and that blessed are they that "HEAR" the words of the book, yet different interpretations of the images and events in Revelation among Christians are MULTITUDINOUS.

    Same with the Rapture. There are seemingly TRUE Christians who disagree on the timing of this, (of which there are SEVERAL different interpretations), and those who do NOT believe there will be a catching away of believers before the coming of Christ in judgement AT ALL. What is wrong with this picture? WHY such disagreement if all these believers share the same "Spirit of Truth"?

    A "common sense" explanation here, (that would NOT be accepted or entertained by fundamental Christians as it would threaten the core of their belief in the bible), is that the scriptures DO contradict themselves in places and therefore it is no wonder that so many Christians do not agree. The problem with faith in something is that some explanations of apparent problems CANNOT be considered if the implications of that explanation would diminish or destroy the faith itself. But how do you get to the bottom of something unless you consider ALL viable possibilities?
