""THE ELECT" CANNOT BE 'THE CHURCH' IN THIS SCRIPTURE...."

Dear Doves,

Because 'The Church' is NOT appointed to be tribulated ie. enter tribulation; "the elect", in this Scripture, CANNOT be referring to The Church. The days of "great tribulation" are not "shortened" for the sake of 'The Church' because 'The Church' is not appointed to enter tribulation. Therefore, "the elect" is NOT 'The Church' in the following Scripture:

Matthew 24:21
"For then there will be great tribulation......And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect's sake those days will be shortened."

So, who is "the elect" that is saved out of the shortened tribulation?

Come Lord Jesus!
