You know what irresistible force is bringing us inexorably closer and closer to the Second Coming? THE CONTINUED PASSAGE OF TIME. If these guys can find a way to reverse that, I want to know.

Ok, there are many countries who have various levels of socialism in how they are governed…..but if America includes some “socialistic” attributes or behavior this moves us closer to the apocalypse? I don’t get it. When did America become the deciding factor for the end times?

Also – I know we can’t know the motivations of anyone – but – isn’t this a guy who would stand to make a lot of money off of apocalyptic hysteria? Perhaps that is a lens he can’t help but see the world through.

I don’t understand Christianity’s fear of the Apocalypse. Why are they so intent on prolonging our stay on this earth? Shouldn’t they be looking forward to the “New Earth” and Heaven?

By golly I am.

I’m still a little confused. For Lahaye, wouldn’t this be a good thing? Isn’t he looking forward to being raptured and reveling in the misfortune of everyone who missed it? Obviously I need to read the books again.

    One would think Christians like Mr. LaHaye would be happy for the apocalypse and rapture. On one hand they are–they get to escape all the persecution according to their theology. But when the end times imminent arrival is going to affect their economic well being– i.e. socialism and the democrats want to tax those who make as much money as they do–then moving towards the apocalypse is a bad thing. At least this appears to be the case in my opinion, I could be wrong and just being cynical.

    or maybe he doesn’t want to discover how the end times are REALLY going to happen :)
    (btw, I’ve read all the left behind books…..)

@Leanne. Very true! That is unless you are Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist folks. They seem to rejoice in what they see as signs of the times.

Why do a lot of american dispensational evangelicals believe that the apocalypse hinges on America’s morality? It makes no sense to think that because one country’s morals or socialistic tendencies is the arbiter that bring upon Armageddon. I think a large part of it is the combination of the dispensational thought that not all the prophesies were fulfilled and the rampant self-righteous moralism that pervades a good majority of evangelical churches. It is simply foolishness.

    They love to use the “if my people, which are called by my name, will humble themselves & pray & seek my face, then will I hear from heaven and will heal their land”. God is judging due to a lack of humbling & seeking, and the apocolypse is also going to be due to that. At least that was a lot of my experience.

LaHaye’s theology is questionable (to put it lightly) but he’s not saying anything here that he hasn’t been saying for years. More than likely, he would’ve said the same thing if John McCain were president, too. I’m not excusing what he said, just pointing out that this was probably going to be his quote no matter who was in office.

Where does LaHaye get the idea that the Apocolypse is in anyway related to a socialistic government takeover (not that that’s happened, but clearly it has in his mind). I don’t see where even if that had happened he thinks that’s related to his Apocolypse?
