Fred Clark has posted a new post, NRA: Returning the rental car, at Patheos.com.
This week Fred writes about pp.17-18 of Nicolae: The Rise of Antichrist
LaHaye and Jenkins aren’t just saying that America will be destroyed. They’re also saying that America should be destroyed.
L&J’s story won’t allow for Will Smith or Bruce Willis to save the day. It says, rather, that the destruction of the world is inevitable and right and just and good. Any so-called heroes opposing that destruction are on the wrong side of the struggle. This is what will happen, so no one can stop it. And this is what should happen, so no one should stop it. The heroes can’t save the day. This story allows for only one Savior, and he shows up at the end not to save the day but to deliver the final, graceless coup de grâce.
That makes this a very odd story.
