Nic Cage is a pilot, a father, and one of the unlucky people who remain stuck on Earth, because he didn't pray. Because 2014 is officially the year of movies and television about the Biblical end of days, behold the very emotional trailer for Left Behind.


Don't worry — God remembered to take all the babies to heaven before the apocalypse. Just not Nic Cage. As you can see in the movie, Nic Cage didn't (as his ex-wife's letters in her home said) "pray," so now he and his daughter are stuck on Earth while God gets ready for Armageddon. Bummer. Left Behind will premiere on October 3.


As a pastor (yes I start all my posts like this) I have to say that this Hollywood version of the "Biblical end of days" is completely UN-Biblical; I don't understand why it was ever embraced by the church. There's no such thing as the rapture; that word is not written in the Bible even one time. The Bible instead refers to a "Resurrection of the dead" that will happen in the end, and it says that some will even be resurrected without ever dying. But the entire idea of people vanishing in the blink of an eye is complete nonsense. What the Bible DOES say is it that in the twinkling of an eye, we will be changed (1 Cor 15:52). It does not say "in the twinkling of an eye we will vanish," but that in an instant we will receive spiritual bodies.

1 Corinthians 15:40-44New International Version (NIV)

40 There are also heavenly bodies and there are earthly bodies...

42 So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable...

44 it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.

So this rapture stuff doesn't come from the Bible, it comes from those crazy Left Behind books and preachers who don't read their Bibles. There will be no rapture, only the resurrection of the dead... which will most likely mimic what already happened immediately after Jesus resurrection:

Matthew 27:50-53New International Version (NIV)

50 And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.

51 At that moment... the earth shook, the rocks split 52 and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53 They came out of the tombs after Jesus' resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people.
