Fulfilled Prophecy is one of the greatest proofs that the Bible is the Word of God, and that Christianity is true. There are more than 300 rophecies of the first coming of Christ, in about 60 categories. The odds against these prophecies beeing coincidentally fulfilled by an imposter are astronomical.

The partial fulfillment of end-times prophecies in our own generation should cause even the most skeptical people to pay attention to the claims of Jesus Christ.

'Left Behind' Author Tim LaHaye Fires Back at Anti-Rapture Apologist

Aug. 11, 2014 - In a recent article Christian apologist William Lane Craig claimed that belief in the Rapture began in the 1800's and is not really biblical. Tim LaHaye, co-author of the extrememly popular "Left Behind" series of novels explains Craig's orientation:
"Craig is an a-Millennialist, who like Augustine in the 5th century taught that the Word of God was inspired and to be taken literally, except for prophecies, and they were to be taken spiritually, allegorically or symbolically."
LaHaye says the problem with this view is that it keeps us from understanding the 28 percent of the Bible that is prophetic. Furthermore, it removes the 'blessed hope of Christ's return' for His church (Titus 2:12-14).

LaHaye's book, A Quick Look at the Rapture and the Second Coming, gives 15 differences between the rapture and the Second Coming.

LaHaye says there is good news for Craig and other a-Millennialists who have truly accepted Christ as their Savior. "They will go up in the rapture with the rest of us."

Obama Is Not the Anti-Christ
Dr. John Mark Reynolds
The Torrey Honors Institute

Aug. 13, 2009 - Dr. Reynolds alerts us to a disturbing You Tube video that claims that Barack Obama might be Antichrist. He says that traditional Christians should reject this video because it is "hateful, wrong, and illogical."
The Antichrist is a literary symbol for all that is bad about humanity and many traditional Christians think that eventually there will be one tyrant who incarnates all those evils.
Reynolds adds that calling or suggesting that someone is the Antichrist is worse than calling the person “Hitler.”
