What The Left Behind Crowd Does Not Like To Hear

1. They do not like to hear themselves called “Judaizers.” (Even though it can be demonstrated that their idea of the future kingdom that Jesus is supposed to set up in the millennium is the same mistaken messianic kingdom concept held by those Jews who rejected Jesus at the time of His first advent, and who also opposed Paul’s teachings relaltive to Christ’s present messianic kingdom reign over the Gentiles, and their inclusion in all Old Testament promises.)

2. They do not like to hear themselves called “Liberals.” (Even though the biblical basis for their system of teaching comes more from the subjecitve biases of the interpreter, than from reason, logic, objectivity, and common sense. “Subjectivity is the hall-mark of modern liberal theology.”)

3. They do not like to hear themselves called “Antinomians.” (See Daniel Steele’s book “A Substitute For Holiness Or Antinomianism Revived: The Theology of the Plymouth Brethren Examined and Refuted” for the complete hoe-down on this topic.)

4. They do not like to hear themselves called “Gnostics.” (Even though it can be demonstrated that the metaphysical dualism that underlies their distinctions between heavenly kingdom people (church) and earthly kingdom people (racial Jews) is based on the ancient Greek philosophy called Gnosticism, not the Holy Bible.)

5. They do not like to hear themselves called “Scofield/Darbyites.” (As long as they are shielded from accurate historical knowledge of the ideological development of their dispensational belief system, the more likely they are to be fooled into believing that this humanly-contrived system of foolish teaching actually comes from the Bible. Careful study of Church history, however, both exposes and belies it.)
