Must Christians Believe in the Rapture?

Episode 679 Show Notes 

From the Show

There are differences within the church on this subject. But what we need to affirm in terms of core Christian teachings, is that Jesus is coming back. Christ is going to return bodily to judge the world and redeem his people and I believe those acts happen at the same time.

–Adriel Sanchez
