This and That – 10-10-14

Will Christians be Secretly Raptured? – There are no biblical texts that explicitly teach it or anything like a two-stage coming of Jesus. Passages that supposedly describe the secret rapture could just as easily be read as referring to the glorious second coming, and in fact have been read that way throughout the church’s history. – Jeramie Rinne

Three comments that won’t help matters in Ferguson – We don’t know all the facts. But this dodge is the equivalent of “I don’t see race” in that it allows the speaker to ignore what’s going on. It is a convenient way to duck asking or fielding tough questions of themselves or others. You don’t have to have all the facts to listen to, acknowledge or understand why people took to the streets of Ferguson. – Jonathan Capehart
