Left Behind is a movie (origionaly a Novel) based in modern times, about the events of the Book of Revelation in the Bible. I'm not super religious, by far, but I do know my apocalyptic occourances. So I'm pretty familiar with Revelation. I was set to sit down and watch an epic story about Dragons, Seals, 10 kingdoms being restored, the restoration of the Temple of Solomon, etc. This was not the case. The story though is told in a very real and understandable way.
People just dissapear. Millions upon millions. Chaos everywhere. The worlds food supply is running out, and there is only one way to restore it. The 'Eden' project is a way to grow food on useless land, making them 'kingdoms.' The true location of the Temple of Solomon has been found. A 7 year peace plan has been created. Everything is falling into place. The truth then comes out, for only those who belive in God.
The true moral, however, lies within the people left behind from God. Without a true belieif, or innocence. In the loss of everyone, those left behind have to whitness the rise of the Anti-Christ, but at that expense, learn the truth of God, and what it means to be one of his children.
I wont say Left Behind changed my life any, but it did put some important things into perspective, like Family, for one.
Has any one else seen this Movie, or read the book?
I have yet to see the sequal yet, about the 7 years.
