Why continue to be deceived... Jun 26, 2006
Tim LaHaye, Jerry Jenkins, and others in the Pre-Trib circle, such as Ed Hindson, Tommy Ice, Chuck Missler, etc., continue to put forth the same deceptions that Hal Lindsey popularized decades ago. The notion of a pre-tribulation rapture is foreign to scripture, it is foreign to the teachings of the early Church, and it is grooming the Church for destruction through ignorance and lack of preparation for what is really coming. These men are novices and not prophecy "experts" or "scholars" by any stretch of the imagination; they are those who tickle the ears of gullible Christians. Why continue to be deceived? Tim Cohen, in his excellent book, "The AntiChrist and a Cup of Tea," provides biblically sound and testable evidence to show that the coming AntiChrist is known NOW. Not only that, the same author (Tim Cohen) has now put out the strongest presentation on the whole issue of the rapture EVER offered to the saints of God in Christ: "The REAL Rapture". If you really want to know the truth about the timing of the coming rapture, then you need to hear Tim Cohen's "The REAL Rapture" (based on a volume in his forthcoming "Messiah, History, and the Tribulation Period" series (see Prophecy House's site for details on these items, which are also available via this site).
Christian propaganda? Reah right. Feb 22, 2005
Mark Moore has it wrong. This book may be Christian but it is not propaganda. It tells about something that I(and many others) believe is true. He also says that it is "ludicrous" to think that the world would be in chaos if the Christians disapeared. Yeah right. Let's see millions around the world disapear without warning and not have chaos! Especially if many top leaders disapeared. I think that his accusations are what is ludicrous. "An evil religion perpetuated by zealous idiots"? Give me a break! Christians are as normal as anyone else. Also, the book of Revelation in the Bible only takes about 20 pages because it does not go into much detail. This series of books are much longer because the story is put into "real life" situations(they aren't realy real because nothing like that has ever happened). Also, Mark's comparison to Stephen King's book is ridiculous. That book is totally fiction and sounds stupid. These books at least are about something that will happen. As for the quality of this book, all the books that I have read in the kids series were interesting, but not as good of quality as the adult series.
Series for adults now rewritten for teens Dec 25, 2004
I have always enjoyed the adult series of Left Behind books. The kids books are just as good. The kids interact with the characters from the adult series, experience the same events, etc. However, since the main characters are teens, these books can appeal to younger readers. So far, the stories haven't had the ups and downs that the adult series has had. The adult series has books that are a lot more boring than others. The kids series seems to be good in every book. These are not for really young kids, but would be appropriate for young teens. I enjoy them and I am an adult.
Preparing for Battle Mar 18, 2003
This fourth installment in the Left Behind-The Kids series is, in my opinion, the best in the series so far. In this fourth book, the four teens who are living in a post-Rapture world learn details of the coming holocaust of horrible judgments that will strike the planet, as prophecied in Scripture. They also discover who the Antichrist is at the very end of the book. Also at the end, the four teens realize their purpose in living as Christians in a post-Rapture world. They realize they must get the Truth of the Bible's salvation message to the world to as many people as possible before the end comes,when they learn that the world would come to its end in seven years.
Facing the Future picks up where book 3 left off. Judd and Vicki go to Chicago to witnes the arrest of a mass murderer, by whom they had almost been killed. After the arrest, Judd shares his Faith to a group of police officers. All the officers except one laugh it off. The young Homicide cop Archibald Edwards is interested. Later on in the book, good news and bad news come about. The kids witness to the wife of a police officer about the Gospel message and she become a Christian. Archibald Edwards, the cop who is somewhat interested in the Gospel message, is suddenly killed by the murderer LeRoy Banks when he attempts but fails a jailbreak attempt. This book seems to be trying to make a point, which is this: if you've heard the Gospel message, do not wait; do not put off coming to Christ because you may not have tomorrow to live. Do not risk your life and, more importantly, your afterlife by thinking you have all the time in the world, because you do not!
When the kids learn from Biblical prophesy that within the next seven years, the end of the world would come about through war, famine, pestilences, plagues, earthquakes, and cosmic disturbances, they realize their purpose for living as Christians in a world plunged into mass chaos. They also discover who the Antichrist is when a man who has encountered the Antichrist shares his nightmarish story . . .
