“It is really nothing more than an extension of the world’s current philosophy into apparently Christian thinking.  It is the longing to avoid suffering combined with the belief that God will protect Christians from it.  A quick look at the lives of the martyrs should dispel us of this falsehood.  God’s saints have suffered through history more than most.  Persecution of the Church has continued throughout all of history around the world, and there are countless martyrs whose names are known only by God who have shed their blood for their faith.”

(Fr Alban Waggener on the Protestant ‘rapture’ theory)
