It is actually from the Latin translation that we get the word Rapture. The New Testament was written in Greek and translated into Latin in the fourth century. The Greek work "harpazo" means "snatched up". The Latin translation used the word "rapture" to describe this event known as the "blessed hope". It is not a convenient word that someone decided to use to further a cause. It is simply a different translation. The word "Trinity" is not found anywhere in the Bible either, but it is certainly taught. Many words used in the English translations of the Bible are not found in other translations due to difficulties in finding words that describe exactly the meaning of the word intended in the original language.
What needs to be remembered here is the glorious blessed hope that is awaiting all who believe the truth, not arguing over the translation of one word from Greek to Latin to English. If you doubt the translation of the English Bible then study Greek and Latin and Hebrew on your own and draw your own conclusions. But never diminish the Word of God to trivial arguements.

  Posted by Webmaster on Saturday, August 31 2002

Web-Ministry is intended for the Glory of God.

Please try to be respectful of God and to be reverent toward His Word, which is the Holy Bible.

Some may not be Christian nor agree with Christian theology in general,
but please be respectful of those that do and to Christendom in general.

People from all walks of life and backgrounds of faith are welcome here,
including the backslidden and nonbelievers, as well.

We may not all agree... but we can agree to disagree, at least.

However, any potential disagreements still need to remain civil in nature, and should stay as such.

Please, just debate the points of your position, if necessary, and refrain from ad hominem attacks.
Slandering and name calling serve no productive purpose.

Posting rules are based upon decent conduct and generally acceptable chat behavior and,
also, on Christian beliefs and morals found in the Holy Bible.

Please refrain from using offensive language or obscenely suggestive innuendo.

Usernames that are not becoming of basic common decency and morality are not to be used and may possibly result in membership cancellation.

Refusing to follow forum rules may result in membership cancellation and possibly some or all applicable posts being deleted and if necessary... entire threads.

If you feel these things to be unacceptable, please find another forum to post on.Thank you.
