Pretribulation or Posttribulation Rapture?
The timing of the “rapture” is a divisive and contentious subject in the world of
Evangelical Christianity. Churches typically do not like controversy, and will do much to avoid it altogether. Evangelical churches
in the United States seem to fall largely into two camps, being either staunchly pretribulational, or avoiding the subject altogether.
The former group typically considers no other view worthy of a hearing. The latter group seems to think eschatology is too complicated for Christians to be bothered with, and completely unnecessary to the Christian life.
These are commonly called “pantribulationists,” (it will all "pan out" in the end, no need to concern yourself).
