So, a question I’ve never really been able to get answered directly what the Catholic teaching on this actually is. Now, when I say the Rapture, I’m speaking of what is represented in modern protestant teachings, and literature, such as the Left Behind series. And now that I’m looking into becoming Catholic, this of course is important to find out.
From my understanding this teaching didn’t come about until much much later in history (around the 1800’s or so). It seemed silly to me when I was growing up, and it does to me now. I don’t for a second doubt the second coming, but the things like one world currency, one world country, believers being taken everyone else staying behind to fend for themselves, I have a very, very hard time believing those things.
Can someone help clear my views?
