Falling Away Doctrine #1 - The Rapture

Comment on pre-tribulation rapture

Spiritually it is the Holy Spirit is most likely taken out of the way, [hindering the coming of the son of perdition]
2 Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. ["he" is what is used and not "she" as relating to the church.]

also we shall surely go thru some tribulation... what we will not go thru is the wrath of God.
Deuteronomy 4:30 When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee... [pre-tribulation is not bible proved]

There are too many to list of scripture revealing a post or mid tribulation and only 1 or 2 vs leading to assume a pretribulation Matthew 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. [How can the elect be mentioned as the reason the days are shortened if they are not there? ]

Romans 8:35 (Whole Chapter)
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Revelation 7:14 (Whole Chapter)
And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
