One thing I have found, to my surprise, is that if you read the very early fathers/elders of the church, the doctrine of the pre-tribulation rapture is totally absent from their writings. Yet, I had accepted its strong probability for a long time. It isn't that those early writers ignored the subject of the resurrection and end times. In fact, it was a common topic in their works. It has to set you thinking. How in the world would they not know of the pretrib rapture/resurrection if that is what the apostles taught? I simply cannot imagine that's possible. One is forced to conclude the doctrine is an innovation.
