Can’t swing a dead cat without…
If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound? Can that which happens by design also happen by accident? Movies with misdirected Christian themes and bad theology, therefore, can produce most any outcome…by accident.
Another issue among Left Behind’s fans was whether the film would be “theologically sound” and reflect “biblical truth”. “I guess that depends on who you ask,” wrote Lalonde. “This movie, by definition, is based on a pre-tribulation rapture. There are those who would disagree with that interpretation of scripture.”
Tim LaHaye’s book is a train wreck of theology. It refers to the same God, same Jesus. Outside of that, he might as well have borrowed from H.G. Wells and written a sequel to the Time Machine. Some seem hopeful this new movie iteration will get ’em saved. Sure, but then I’m sure people give their lives to Christ strapped into a roller coaster. Sometimes you just can’t swing a dead cat without getting someone to Christ.
