    Tim LaHaye, the best-selling author best known for the Left Behind series, “graduated to heaven” early this morning after suffering a stroke at age 90. His family announced the news of his passing at a San Diego hospital on his ministry Facebook page. On the eve of his death, ministry partners, fans, and friends urgently asked for prayer on social media this weekend, offering a wave of early tributes that spread through end-times prophecy circles and chapters of Concerned Women for America (CWA), the 600,000-member public policy organization founded by LaHaye’s wife, Beverly. Some circulated a statement by LaHaye’s daughter...

    Author, pastor and prophet Tim LaHaye died of a stroke on Monday. He was 90. LaHaye was perhaps best known for his Left Behind end times series with co-author Jerry B. Jenkins. "Thrilled as I am that he is where he has always wanted to be, his departure leaves a void in my soul I don't expect to fill until I see him again," Jenkins said. "The Tim LaHaye I got to know had a pastor's heart and lived to share his faith. He listened to and cared about everyone, regardless of age, gender, or social standing. If Tim was...

    The Vault ^ | January 14, 2012 | Dr. Tim LaHaye, author "Left Behind" series
    Dear fellow South Carolina evangelicals and pastors: You may find this hard to believe, but in 1947-48 I was the pastor of the Oolenoy Baptist church in Pumpkintown, S.C, thirty five miles out in the country from Greenville. It was there that I was ordained to the Gospel ministry and have been in the Lord’s work for over 64 happy years. The reason I am writing you is because as a South Carolinian, you are in a strategic position to help America at this historic time in our nation’s history. During the last three years our nation has been led...

    Tim LaHaye​, an influential Evangelical leader and author of the best-selling Christian book series, Left Behind, and his wife Beverly, the founder of Concerned Women of America, have endorsed former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Their significant endorsement may signal other Evangelicals to unite behind Gingrich in South Carolina and beyond to defeat former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in the GOP presidential primary. “Now that the Republican Presidential Primary has wound down to two front runners who can win, I would like to publicly endorse the proven conservative speaker of the House Newt Gingrich as the most qualified candidate to become...

    After all the hoopla about Family Radio's Harold Camping preaching of the rapture and the end time on May 21, 2011, today I checked Family Radio's Buffalo FM, 89.9 WFBF... On the air and from what I heard, business as usual. But it makes me wonder, is a hoax such as Camping's preaching and promising an actionable offense before the FCC? Imagine the uproar if Clear Channel, Entercom or Cumulus participated in such a "promotion." Yes, CC has thousands of stations and Family Radio has about a hundred. Still, Harold Camping's advisory cost some members of the listening public their...

    (05-22) 19:18 PDT ALAMEDA -- The man who said the world was going to end appeared at his front door in Alameda a day later, very much alive but not so well. "It has been a really tough weekend," said Harold Camping, the 89-year-old fundamentalist radio preacher who convinced hundreds of his followers that the rapture would occur on Saturday at 6 p.m. Massive earthquakes would strike, he said. Believers would ascend to heaven and the rest would be left to wander a godforsaken planet until Oct. 21, when Camping promised a fiery end to the world. But on Sunday,...

    Christian radio tycoon says the world will end May 21—and surprising numbers believe him. Ralph Workman believes what he hears on Christian radio. He believes preacher and Family Radio chief Harold Camping is right about Judgment Day. He believes the world is coming to an end May 21, 2011. An engineer at Boeing's avionics lab, Workman helps manage an RV caravan winding its way around the United States—from Indianapolis to Pittsburgh to Virginia—sharing the belief that biblical numbers point to the specific expiration date for the world. He also runs a website called eBible Fellowship, which distributes Camping's teachings. "I...

    BK: Are We Living in the END TIMES? | 1999, 30 APR 2007 | Tim LaHaye, Jerry B Jenkins, Quix critique
    Quix: I've been undecided about whether the Bible clearly indicated Babylon was to be rebuilt in these END TIMES until reading as far as I have in this book. I believe this excerpt is an important one to prayerfully consider and that it is indicative of a wealth of well researched info in the book. I consider it well worth getting and reading all of—for anyone seriously interested in the END TIMES and Bible prophecy. Pp132-143 Babylon is mentioned 280 times in the Bible—more than any city except Jerusalem. It is easily the most important pagan city that ever existed,...

    "At this time of great crisis in the world, we should be looking for nuclear disarmament, nuclear abolition -- saving the world, not ramping up for Armageddon by nuclear proliferation," said Rep. Dennis Kucinich, Ohio Democrat. "There's always an alien battle cruiser, or a Korlian death ray, or an intergalactic plague that's trying to wipe out life on this miserable little planet," said actor Tommy Lee Jones in "Men in Black."

    When Tim LaHaye talks, the faithful listen—by the millions. The conservative Protestant minister is the coauthor of the wildly popular apocalyptic “Left Behind” novels. The controversial books, which have sold more than 60 million copies, depict the biblical end of the world: the Christian eschatology of the upheaval that precedes the second coming of Jesus Christ, known also as “end times.” LaHaye recently spoke with NEWSWEEK’s Brian Braiker about why he believes the events currently unfolding in the Middle East reflect biblical prophesy.

    The rapture has come, and the believers have been gathered up and taken to heaven. As for everybody else: They've been left behind to duke it out in a smoldering, apocalyptic New York City. That's the scenario in a soon-to-be-released Christian-themed video game. Meanwhile, in the real world, the Christian community is engaged in its own skirmish over the virtues or vices of the concept of a Christian video game that involves killing. "Left Behind: Eternal Forces," which is made for PCs and will be unveiled at the E3 show next month, is a classic struggle of good vs. evil....

    MESSAGES TO THE WORLD: THE STATEMENTS OF OSAMA BIN LADENLawrence says that bin Laden is fundamentally a “poet”—and that his fanatical ideology puts him in line with Left Behind writers Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins and televangelists Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson. This, he says, is exactly why the al-Qaeda spokesperson’s “hollow” message is so attractive to angry Arabs. ... Osama bin Laden repeatedly cites the Qur’an, but he cites it in the way that Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson cite the New Testament. You can make scripture fit your worldview and bin Laden had done this extraordinarily well with...

    TORONTO — “Do we really need another ‘Left Behind’?” This is the question some folks are asking of the next film installment of Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins’ widely read apocalyptic series. Peter Lalonde was open and prepared for the query. Lalonde and his brother, Paul, are the founders of Cloud Ten Pictures, the Toronto-based company responsible for the movie versions. “It’s a story that attracts believers and nonbelievers. Whenever you get a chance to make a movie you know is going to have a wide viewership, and you can have your message in it, you take that opportunity,” Peter...

    In a time when George W. Bush’s first-term cabinet has dissolved in a rash of resignations, the President has taken an ambitious step toward his goals for his second term. On Tuesday, Bush announced the addition of a new cabinet-level position within his administration: the Director of Eschatology and Rapture. The head of the new department will be Dr. Tim LaHaye, pastor and bestselling co-author of the Left Behind series. Speaking of the appointment, Bush said, “I figured, Timmy’s done such a good job of making up an imaginary rapture, he’d be the best at coming up with the real...

    (AgapePress) - A popular Christian author and pastor says the overwhelming majority of Christians need a change of attitude regarding public schools. Meanwhile, leading education experts are trying to dispel some common myths about home schooling and let parents know why it may be a better choice for their families. Dr. Tim LaHaye, co-author of the Left Behind novel series, says evangelical pastors who advocate sending their Christian youth to public schools are "philosophically out to lunch." He says those pastors and other Christian leaders who look favorably on public education "don't understand the worldview of the secular humanists that's...

    America sweated for 37 days while the political world focused on Florida. George W. Bush came to office by the narrowest of margins. It wasn’t supposed to be that way. Karl Rove counted on 2 more million Evangelical Christians coming out than actually did. Beginning with Bob Dole’s uninspiring campaign and the release of the first Left Behind novel in 1996, Evangelical Christians have increasingly withdrawn from the political sphere. In this series of columns, we’ll address this huge social issue in some depth, because the future of this nation will ride on whether this trend continues or abates. 1)...

    When Nicholas Kristoff of The New York Times read the finale to the Left Behind series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, he was shocked to see what Christians believe about the Last Judgment. In Glorious Appearing, Jesus returns and unbelievers are judged. Mr. LaHaye and Mr. Jenkins present their punishment in gruesome detail: Flesh dissolves, eyeballs melt, a fiery fissure opens up in the earth and swallows up the ungodly. Mr. Kristoff reads all of this as violence against non-Christians, as monumental intolerance that is no different than the mindset of Islamic terrorists. This view of “Jesus returning to...

    As you read this press release, watch for the attempt to create conflict within the ranks of believers. (AgapePress) - A Christian author says the popular "Left Behind" books are filled with biblically inaccurate teachings. The cornerstone of the best-selling book series by authors Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins is "the rapture." That term describes God's removal of true Christians from the world as the initial event that many Christians believe will usher in a seven-year period of tribulation leading to the visible return of Jesus Christ. But in his new book End Time Delusions (Destiny Image, 2004), Steve Wohlberg...

    What will probably be this year’s biggest book-publishing event took place a few weeks ago. It wasn’t the latest thriller by John Grisham or the sixth Harry Potter book; it was Glorious Appearing, the final installment in the Left Behind series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins. The mainstream media, which usually ignores happenings in the Christian publishing world, took notice this time. But, as usual, they got matters of Christian faith and practice wrong. Writer Joan Didion, as Wheaton literature professor Alan Jacobs noted, regards Left Behind as “the key to unlocking the hidden agenda of the Bush administration...
