Left Behind Christianity

A recent survey of Left Behind readers uncovered a surprising demographic: Almost a quarter of people who’ve read or are reading Left Behind are not Christians – they hold other beliefs including Islam and Buddhism.

As surprising as this may or may not be to you, there is another side effect to the widely popular series: A growing number of non-Christians are now making the assumption that Christianity and the theology of Left Behind are one and the same.

Pop culture fiction is now synonymous with Christianity.

Ouch.
