The Rapture of Christian Zionism: How Scofield Sowed Seeds of Apostasy

Based on the Rapture Theory...I call the Rapture theory the zombie theory. When "Jesus comes back", all "Saved Christians" will come out of their graves to join him. What if one is cremated? What happens to Jews and other religions?
Lots of questions but I don't spend much time when many in the church have thought that it's heretical thinking. That says enough for me. (Marilyn Penrose)
I have been to two funerals with ministers using this made up theory, and it leaves relatives with a hopeless feeling. My cousin and my veteran friend would have to wait rotting in their graves until "Jesus comes back." I believe, no I know, our real Essence is Spirit, and there are many verses in the Bible that support this TRUTH! Ironically, Isreali love these Evangelicals, however according to this theory, they will be "left behind." Remember all those books and movies based on the "Left Behind" series.
Yep. Bottomline, they all share a very right wing, greedy and selfish mentality that has little to do with religion except that they misuse and bend scripture to support their beliefs. And like you point out, in the process they actually hurt people. They give Christians a bad name. (Marilyn Penrose)

Materialistic instead of Spiritual

Rapture is from the Scofield Bible:

The Roots of Christian Zionism: How Scofield Sowed Seeds of Apostasy

Christian Zionism is a promoted religion, less than 200 years old. The Scofield Reference Bible, first published in 1909 by Oxford Press was used widely in evangelical Christian seminaries. This is We Hold These Truths’ first documentary to explain and challenge the theology of Christian Zionism. It was produced in 2008 and continues to be a valid source for understanding Christian Zionism. Chuck Carlson, founder of We Hold These Truths narrates this video. Find on YouTube.
