Our pastor made it clear from the beginning that he is all about Jesus, and that everything he teaches is from the Bible. It's nice, because we're a "semi-mega church" -- many mega churches take on the Joel Osteen model of acceptance and prosperity. Ours does not. We've got a great band and lots of programs, but the center of our church universe is Christ.
I think that the general perception around our country is that if you believe in End Times and talk about Biblical prophecies pertaining to the Rapture or Trib, people think you're a nut job. It's so sad.
I also think that the Rapture and Trib force people to listen/know that it's all about choosing sides -- you're either with Jesus or you aren't. The bulk of our population is that "universalist" mentality -- everyone is saved. So by bringing up the End Times and Rapture, you're contradicting their peaceful, happy, all-accepting doctrine of faith.
I'll pray for them all...
