Not on my end. Actually, just getting one's head cut off is less suffering than what a lot of others have and do suffer, past and present.

The reason I am asking this is because I keep hearing post-tribbers say that pre-tribbers believe that.
And me for nearly 40 years, and I have never heard such a thing. We did have a guy in town that decided that it is "mid-trib" (major fallout here), but the men with the straight jackets would not come pick him up, so, we choked it and spewed it.
However I have been a Christian for over 20 years. In that time I have yet to find a pre-trib believer who believes or thinks that way. (and being that I had been pre-trib a good portion of my Christian life, I have met ALOT of pre-tribbers).
Uh, you are not referring to one offline and in your community, are you?
So why do I hear post-tribbers always saying pre-tribbers believe something I have never even once in over 20 years heard a pre-tribber say they believe?
Well, let's play it cool - perhaps they are just yet to learn better, and will know better as they progress (assuming social circles and religious affiliation has not bound them), I mean, it is not like when we turn our lives to G-d, that a microchip of all the information is put into our heads at once. I mean, the guy I mentioned above ("mid-trib") was bizarre, and I have never heard of "post-trib" until THIS decade, and I spent much time in the different Network Conferences with people across the world in the 1990's. I really did not know much much about "Roman" Catholicism/Protestantism/Etc. until later on, and their influences - sure glad Grandpa does not talk too much.
I was just wondering if there is any pre-tribber in this forum who believes they don't have to face persecution in this life or if they feel they are exempt from anything bad ever happening to them in this life, if they could post that belief here. I am just wondering if there is any pre-tribber around who believes what post-tribbers say they believe.
Either way, as your context expresses, it is better to be a 'readiest' for anything to happen in this life and world, and ready to meet the L-rd, or be taken at any time, in one way or another.
