You mention Matthew 24, but ignore that in Matthew 24:29-31 Jesus clearly said the gathering of the elect would be the previously described Great Tribulation.
Compare Scripture with Scripture and if your theory makes them seem contradictory, then problem is your theory not Scripture.

Anyone who thinks Christians will be spared from tribulations should have a talk with the Christians of Syria and Iraq!

Reconcile that with Matthew 24:29-31 in the light that Scripture does not contradict itself.
29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
Either “who are left, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air” happens after the Tribulation or Jesus lied to us.

True Christianity is a relationship with Jesus, not which church you are a member of.
Doubt me? Read Matthew 7:21-23.

In addition to the the “last trumpet” being the last trumpet, you have to ask “What did Jesus Say?”
In Matthew 24:3-31, Jesus gives an End Times Timeline followed by some parables that expound on parts of the time. Mark 13 and Luke 21 agree with slightly different wording and a few different details. Jesus clear teaches that “the elect” are gathered after the Tribulation!
Since Scripture does not contradict itself, if you interpret something to mean something different than what Jesus taught, then your interpretation is wrong. Therefore, the Pre-Tribulation position is not Biblical. It qualifies as heresy.

He had to invite “the JV team of anchors” so they would fawn over him and report that they only had one requirement to ask about the Supreme Court, and they gullibly played into his hands.

“Take the log out of your eye before trying to remove the splinter out of someone else’s eye.” Love that quote!

It is not addictive?
You just don’t quit forever. You description of giving in to the temptation when certain triggers happen is classic addiction.
I smoked Camel straights for 20 years and gave them up cold-turkey, because I truly believed they were killing me at 38! I have never had another after that, with one exception! I asked a co-worker for a smoke, smoke about 5 puffs and put it out! It actually made me sick! My wife’s from Kentucky and smoked from the age of eleven. She had a kidney problems that kept her in hospital for a month,after being smoke-free for that long she never started again to date. She does say she still wants one after dinner!
Do you know the difference in somebody becoming addicted to something and something being an addictive substance?

“As for bringing up children, Mr. Trump’s own are proof that he succeeds at that, too.”
I guess he had them register as Democrats, so they couldn’t vote against him!

There are no statistics that support the Charlotte ordinance that the North Carolina law overturned either.

Thanks for the list. The article should have had it (more sloppy reporting).
Now I know what schools are safe to send my grandchildren to. :)

I expect to see Target profits to plummet as people with families avoid their restrooms and stores.
PayPay also should see a drop in profits as people cancel their accounts.

I like Emma Thompson in movies. I guess that proves she is a good actress, acting parts better than her personality!

Cruz never campaigned to keep a convicted rapist out of jail, unlike Trump.
 April 29, 2016 at 1:52pm
To many people, John Boehner’s endorsement of Trump proves we need Cruz not Trump!

There is no “theocratic wing” of the Republican Party. There are those who take their beliefs seriously, but no one is advocating for a theocracy, mainly because we know from history that the only theocracy that will work is when Jesus returns and runs it himself. Many of the original colonies where founded by people who didn’t get along the the Church of England: the Pilgrims in Massachusetts, the Quakers in Pennsylvania, etc. Rhode Island was even found by Baptists who weren’t comfortable in Massachusetts.
We know the First Amendment protects us and definitely want to keep it rather than have a theocracy.

Wait until Trumps connection to Mike Tyson come out!

You are right. A boycott implies there is a chance you might go back.
If every parent refused to go there, they would go out of business.
Remember some months back they removed " gender specific" department designations? There was barely a whimper so they thought they could push this crap. We all need to pat attention and fight back. I have not been in a Target since 2011 (cause they are SJW) but I still signed the petition to let them know We the People are sick of the BULLCRAP!

It generates more comments like ours, so they are probably paid by the amount of comments the article generates!

Bob, The Devil always overreaches. You forgot to quote the verse about “he who doesn’t take care of his family is worse than an infidel!”
You are arguing like you have some Dayton (Target’s parent company) stock that you are afraid will lose value!
