So, I’m almost finished with the latest Left Behind book, “The Rising“. I think that the worst part about these books is that just the time that you’re into the story, figured out the characters and have trouble putting it down, it ends. That being said, this is probably the first book in the series that didn’t follow the usual big event and then the reaction pattern. In the first book, you had the rapture, and then people dealing with it. In this one, it’s all build up. That being said, there are twists and turns along the way.
One of the things that struck me in both the book and my Bible reading is about how faithful God is to His Word and promises. When He promises something, you can count on it. Like when David sinned and repented, he could count on God’s love. When we sin and do those things that God doesn’t want us to, we can count on His love. All too often we put too much trust in others to be what only God can be– holy and just. We expect those around us to be there, to always have the same feelings and act the same way– but only God can be that unchanging.
Just wondering: What effect do you think it would have on the Roman Catholic church if the new Pope stated that they should stop Mary worship, no more confessionals, the priests were to marry, and that the parishioners should get saved (if they weren’t)? Would people follow?
