 'Left Behind' Theology Not Biblical | Christianpost.com- Christian News Online , Christian World News
The Rev. William Hull, a research professor at Samford University, pointed out some of the non-biblical ideas that come out in the “Left Behind” series during his workshop at the conference.
Hull argued that the idea of rapture written in the book -- with Christians being snatched out of the world and sent straight to heaven to avoid the seven-year period of suffering known as the tribulation -- is not how it is written in the Bible.
He further noted that the books draw on dispensationalism (according to Hull, the idea faded away after World War II), a form of biblical interpretation derived from the teachings of John Nelson Darby and popularized in the Scofield Reference Bible, whose prevalent view is about Christ reigning over Earth for 1,000 years.
