The Lost Generation


The fateful stewardess from “Left Behind.”

Yes, all babies and children will be taken in the Rapture — as will all believing Christians.

It hit me as I was watching “Left Behind” with Nicolas Cage. Babies have no consciousness of sin, no guilt of sin, no need for forgiveness from God. As we grow up and grow aware of right and wrong and willfully chose wrong, we then need a Savior. If we refuse to receive Jesus, we don’t get right relationship with Jesus. We miss out.

Yes, I believe in the Rapture. I’m not going to treat the subject here. Suffice to say that the New Testament’s repeated warning that Jesus is coming like a thief in the night doesn’t seem to fit any other eschatological scenario. If you don’t believe, you will be left behind.

From all ages, people will be instantly resurrected to Heaven. But from one age — that of early childhood — all will be taken. That is the lost generation. There will be no children on earth within that age.

I am late in finally seeing this movie. Don’t be late in accepting Jesus into your heart as Lord and Savior.

Rapture or rupture

You won’t be scoffing one day (soon).

I’ve studied significantly the theme of the rapture in seminary, and I’m more a believer than ever in it. There’s just no other plausible interpretation of so many texts that talk about it, and it is consistent with the whole Bible (God removed Noah from his judgement).

There’s no need to fear if you fear God, but if you flout Him or defy Him, at least you know you had the chance to make a decision in favor of Christ.

(Spoiler alert)
