Ms. End Times from the blog The End Times has decided to make a call on what the Salem Gazette reported about our Left Behind: The Party! event. I am a universalist and a liberal "pseudo-pastor" according to this fine example of a Christian theologian and reporter.
So for the note Ms. End Times: This party is designed to be a response to poor Christian eschatology, and we have a hope of changing the term "Left Behind" into what it was meant to be - not a statement of left behind in the rapture, but remaining alive after judgment. You can read up on John Woolvaard's commentaries on that subject, and discover that even he (as one of pre-tribulational eschatology's finest scholars) sees one being left, and one taken as not referring to a rapture.
So, Elizabeth, if you would like to be like the Pharisees and accuse me of dancing while the piper pipes - go ahead. But if you like - let's talk.
I love this stuff actually. Gives me a chance to respond to bad theology. ;-)
