Alternate Viewpoints

(Different from the Pretribulation Viewpoint)

People with different understandings of the timing of the Rapture may still be orthodox. This issue should not be a test of fellowship between believers. You will find points of agreement and disagreement on these sites, but they are helpful to earnest students of prophecy. Remember to test everything against the whole counsel of the Word of God.

The Pre-wrath Viewpoint
