"When Jesus comes to rapture the Church, you don't want to be left behind, do you??" The idea of believers disappearing from the earth in "the twinkle of an eye" in order to escape the "Great Tribulation" is one that has captivated the imaginations of many Christians over the past 150 years now. Multimillion dollar book, TV, video game and movie franchises have been constructed around this very concept. But is it what the Bible actually teaches? In this "Dojo Discussions" edition, JM Smith looks at various issues surrounding popular End Times teachings which many Christians take for granted to be solid, orthodox, Biblical teaching...with surprising results. Could it be that when it comes to the return of Jesus, you actually WANT to be 'left behind'??

About the Author:

James-Michael Smith is an author, artist, martial artist, speaker and teacher. He is also the founder of Disciple Dojo (JMSmith.org), an online teaching ministry focused on providing discipleship resources through a variety of media and formats. JM has two degrees in art (Associates, Visual Arts - Reinhardt University '97; Bachelor of Fine Art, Drawing & Painting - University of Georgia '00) and received his M.Div from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in 2006. After serving as Pastor of Discipleship at a large Methodist church in Charlotte for 5 years, JM stepped down in order to launch Disciple Dojo and focus on speaking, teaching and writing, as well as potential future Ph.D study. He has developed and taught Biblical studies courses and seminars to Pastors and teachers throughout the Southeast as well as abroad in Africa and India. Born and raised in Savannah, GA where his father was a Pastor of a small United Methodist Church plant in the inner-city, JM began pursuing two of his passions--art and martial arts--from a very early age and continues to use both to this. He is a professional artist who has done portraits of some of the top martial artists in the world to help raise money for various charities (you can see his work at JMSmith.org/art/gallery). He is also 2nd degree black belt and Brazilian Jiujitsu purple belt, and teaches women's self-defense seminars as part of Disciple Dojo's overall ministry. Outside of Biblical studies, art & martial arts, his interests include (in no particular order): * his dog Ripken (a stray shih-tzu and the best dog ever!), * old Steve McQueen and Akira Kurosawa films, * any Halo game on XBox, * snowboarding & wakeboarding, * Bruce Lee, * great jazz, * positive hip hop, * geeky documentaries, * camping & hiking, * Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies & Rainbow Twizzlers, * the Simpsons, * and "the 3 Rons" (Paul, Swanson & Burgandy)
