Humanity Left Behind

Fred Clark has posted again about the Left Behind movie. Here is a quote: You don’t need to be a seminary graduate to understand the theological problems with this story — you just need to be a human being. That’s the insurmountable problem for any attempt to make a movie based on LaHaye’s theological-sounding ideology. [Read More...]
