Those who distinguish the body of Christ from the bride of Christ seem to fall into two camps: those who think the bride is Israel, and those who think the bride is a more pure, elite group of Christians who will be raptured apart from the rest of the body/the church. Both are unscriptural. If part of the body/the church is raptured, that falsely teaches that part of the church goes through the tribulation. All false endtimes teachings come from one basic problem: not accepting the dispensational, literal, grammatical, historical interpretation of Scripture. The partial rapture/bride people don't distinguish between what is said to Israel, to the church, and to the tribulation saints.
