Why Many Christians Neglect to Study Bible Prophecy

study Bible

Many Christians believe we are getting closer to the start of the end times. However, many of these Christians do not study Bible prophecy. Why do so many Christians neglect to study Bible prophecy despite what is transpiring in the world? In this article, I explain why many Christians do not study Bible prophecy.

One of the main reasons why many Christians do not study Bible prophecy is that they are busy with their daily lives. Like most people, Christians have families to raise, careers to maintain, bills to pay, a social life, etc. As a result, many Christians do not have much time to devote to study Bible prophecy. It is certainly understandable because life is not easy and time is limited.

Another reason many Christians do not study Bible prophecy is that the subject terrifies them. Most people do not want to think about the notion that the sun will turn black and the moon will turn to blood as millions/billions of people die. Even though people might think they will never see these events, they still have fear reading/hearing about them. The fear is real. I have witnessed people become afraid when end time prophecy concepts are discussed. They become so afraid you can see it in their body language. I definitely was that way when I was younger.

Finally, many Christians do not study Bible prophecy because they hold the mindset that they will be removed from the earth before the tribulation begins. It’s understandable why many Christians would not care about Bible prophecy with that mindset. Why should a person worry about horrible things they believe they will not see?

  • I want to acknowledge that there are people who study prophecy despite believing they will be removed before the tribulation. Therefore, I’m not saying or trying to imply that all people who believe they will be removed from the earth before the tribulation do not care about Bible prophecy.

    PRETRIB RAPTURE POLITICS

    Many are still unaware of the eccentric, 180-year-old British theory underlying the politics of American evangelicals and Christian Zionists.
    Journalist and historian Dave MacPherson has spent more than 40 years focusing on the origin and spread of what is known as the apocalyptic “pretribulation rapture” – the inspiration behind Hal Lindsey’s bestsellers of the 1970s and Tim LaHaye’s today.
    Although promoters of this endtime evacuation from earth constantly repeat their slogan that “it’s imminent and always has been” (which critics view more as a sales pitch than a scriptural statement), it was unknown in all official theology and organized religion before 1830.
    And MacPherson’s research also reveals how hostile the pretrib rapture view has been to other faiths:
    It is anti-Islam. TV preacher John Hagee has been advocating “a pre-emptive military strike against Iran.” (Google “Roots of Warlike Christian Zionism.”)
    It is anti-Jewish. MacPherson’s book “The Rapture Plot” (see Armageddon Books etc.) exposes hypocritical anti-Jewishness in even the theory’s foundation.
    It is anti-Catholic. Lindsey and C. I. Scofield are two of many leaders who claim that the final Antichrist will be a Roman Catholic. (Google “Pretrib Hypocrisy.”)
    It is anti-Protestant. For this reason no major Protestant denomination has ever adopted this escapist view.
    It even has some anti-evangelical aspects. The first publication promoting this novel endtime view spoke degradingly of “the name by which the mixed multitude of modern Moabites love to be distinguished, – the Evangelical World.” (MacPherson’s “Plot,” p. 85)
    Despite the above, MacPherson proves that the “glue” that holds constantly in-fighting evangelicals together long enough to be victorious voting blocs in elections is the same “fly away” view. He notes that Jerry Falwell, when giving political speeches just before an election, would unfailingly state: “We believe in the pretribulational rapture!”
    In addition to “The Rapture Plot,” MacPherson’s many internet articles include “Famous Rapture Watchers,” “Pretrib Rapture Diehards,” “Edward Irving is Unnerving,” “America’s Pretrib Rapture Traffickers,” “Thomas Ice (Bloopers),” “Pretrib Rapture Secrecy” and “Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty” (massive plagiarism, phony doctorates, changing of early “rapture” documents in order to falsely credit John Darby with this view, etc.!).
    Because of his devastating discoveries, MacPherson is now No. 1 on the “hate” list of pretrib rapture leaders who love to ban or muddy up his uber-accurate findings in sources like Wikipedia – which they’ve almost turned into Wicked-pedia!
    There’s no question that the leading promoters of this bizarre 19th century end-of-the-world doctrine are solidly pro-Israel and necessarily anti-Palestinian. In light of recently uncovered facts about this fringe-British-invented belief which has always been riddled with dishonesty, many are wondering why it should ever have any influence on Middle East affairs.
    This Johnny-come-lately view raises millions of dollars for political agendas. Only when scholars of all faiths begin to look deeply at it and widely air its “dirty linen” will it cease to be a power. It is the one theological view no one needs!
    With apologies to Winston Churchill – never has so much deception been foisted on so many by so few!

    [I agree with the above. And pretribulation raptiles hate MacPherson’s “The Rapture Plot” – which I bought at Armageddon Books online – more than any other book! Into 2012ism? Google “The Newest Pretrib Calendar.”]
