I’m sure most of us have seen the left behind movies or at least know of the dispensationalist view of the end times. What concerns me the most is how it compares with Catholic eschatology as seen by the saints. Let’s make a short comparison:
Antichrist: Coming to power no doubt through U.N. or E.U., helping the world through initially very hard times, having a message of peace for the world, working closely with SOME ie. Catholic church leaders and being very charming and charismaitc a great diplomat. All this before turning bad.
Catholic (not official) but through the Saints:
Great Monarch: Great diplomat, working closely with the Holy Father, helping the world through very hard times. having a message of peace, no doubt, all this before the “three days”.
I think Satan knows what’s going to happen better then we do. He has a great knowledge of scripture. He can’t change what’s going to happen but he can try and change our interpretation of this. I think this dispensationalist view and the wide spread of the books and movies of the Left Behind series is very dangerous. What will happen when there not wifted away to the clouds. Such crisis of faith I suppose.
What’s your take?
