There is, however, a predominant view in the post-modern evangelical church that the rapture will occur just before the Great Tribulation allowing us Christians to escape the hardships of life during that awful period. The reason the predominant view differs from the classic view is thanks mainly to one man – Tim LeHaye. His “Left Behind” series of books and movies has made the idea of a pre-trib general rapture very popular; indeed, that was his stated intention for writing them. In a recent Facebook discussion with an atheist, he asked me how the books and the movie were not basically brain-washing young Christians. I couldn’t answer him.
