Q. In your commentary about the Ten Bridesmaids (well done, by the way), you explained that this represented the Tribulation saints, and not the Church. If so, what about those in the Last Days, who will not endure sound doctrine? Are they deceived to believe in a false salvation, or will they still be “caught up” with surprised looks on their faces?
A. The key to being saved and going in the Rapture is being born again. Lots of people who are born again believe things that aren’t doctrinally correct, but where their salvation is concerned they got it right. However if a person doesn’t accept the need to be born again and is led down a different path to salvation or ignores the salvation issue altogether, then they’ve failed to obtain the one qualification required of us and will be left behind.
