I will withhold my source, but as I was reading through one of my required assignments this week, I found this statement:
Why will God snatch Christians up into the clouds to meet the Lord in the air? Pretribulationists answer that we will go with Christ to heaven where we will abide with Him in the place He has prepared for us there (John 14:1-3). We will receive our rewards at the judgment seat of Christ (2 Cor. 5:10) and await our return with Him at His second coming (Rev. 19:14).
Is it just me or does this sound awfully similar to the American Dream? Work hard. Retirement and reward. Finally a part of elite society. Suffering with Jesus anyone?
