-If it's post trib- why don't the dead have to go through the trib? They get a pass because they're dead? I know Christians in the past have gone through trials and tribulation but not every one has. Some Christians don't go through any physical tribulation, just verbal, then die.
Why would we have to go through tribulation to be purified? We already are by Jesus's blood. We are saved by faith, not works. God sees our works as filthy rags. I know people in the old testament have been through tribulation and God took care of them, but that was before Jesus's resurrection.
