Hey Dojo readers,
At the end of 2014 I did a podcast with a minister friend who’s a missionary in Lima, Peru. Check out his site and our discussion about a number of things related to popular end-times teachings that many Christians have been misled into believing and promulgated far and wide over the past century. Some of what we discussed included:
- Matthew 24 and whether a third temple needs to be built in order to fulfill Bible prophecy.
- What are the strengths and weaknesses of the different end times views?
- Why you WANT to be “left behind”, because those “taken” in the Bible were never raptured or spared terror, but rather “taken” in God’s judgment!

And if you still haven’t gotten your copy of my book “You WANT to be ‘Left Behind’!!”…what are you waiting for?? 🙂 Here’s the summary and links to the digital and paperback versions:
“When Jesus comes to rapture the Church, you don’t want to be left behind, do you??”
The idea of believers disappearing from the earth in “the twinkle of an eye” in order to escape the “Great Tribulation” is one that has captivated the imaginations of many Christians over the past 150 years now. Multimillion dollar book, TV, video game and movie franchises have been constructed around this very concept.
But is it what the Bible actually teaches?
In this “Dojo Discussions” edition, JM Smith looks at various issues surrounding popular End Times teachings which many Christians take for granted to be solid, orthodox, Biblical teaching…with surprising results.
Could it be that when it comes to the return of Jesus, you actually WANT to be ‘left behind’??
