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. That movie will have to put human beings up there on the screen, but LaHaye’s theology and LaHaye’s story will not allow those human beings to act like human beings.

Humans who behaved like real humans would disprove LaHaye’s story at every turn. Humans who behave like real humans disprove LaHaye’s theology.

    Then there’s the Left Behind for Kids Series. Scandalous. A series of books aimed at children, in which the take-home message is that one day, by divine decree, they will be abandoned by their Christian parents if they don’t be good little Christians. I see complex PTSD written all over that.

    I hate to bring up reality, but current score, critics 2%, users 66%.
    I reflect upon my old church. Idiots, uneducated, naive, happy campers?
    I choose to ignore them. But I can’t help but think stupid. But they would label me ….
    probably not one of them. One thing I have indeed learned. You cannot argue against their beliefs. It does absolutely no good.

      Apparently it was on 80% before the film had even aired, so 66% represents a huge plummet…

        Now down to 60%, so going in the right direction. However, still disturbing, especially since most are also anti-evolution, YEC’ists, and followers of “Agents of the Apocalypse” pusher, David Jeremiah.
