I was a fly on the wall of a boardroom of Light My Fire Christian publishers the other day where the best-selling Christian author Hulk Lindsley had just inked a deal for his 35th book on the rapture, "The Late, Not-So-Great Planet Earth". Light My Fire Publishers were in a world of financial trouble. Their lavish living--parties on yachts in the Mediterranean, "business" meetings at the finest resorts around the world, vacation mansion in the Caribbean---had taken its toll on the company's bank account and they needed a bestseller quick. Landing Hulk was a coup of the most extreme fortune and they were ecstatic. After Lindsley had left the boardroom a conversation started among the board members. One thing that struck me odd was that even in real life the members talk in King James language. Here's an answer to a question put to the CEO of LMF Publishers about how they were going to extricate themselves from financial ruin. Note the similarities to Daniel's 70 week prophecy:


Quote:
CFO: From whence commeth our loot, PJ?
CEO: Know and understand this: from the going forth of the decree to restore and rebuild our coffers until the anointed one, the author we've just signed writes his bestseller will be 7 weeks and 62 weeks. The book shall be written, but in times of trouble for us. After the 62 sevens if the author doesn't have a bestseller he will be cut off and will have nothing. And the people of the creditors who will follow will come and destroy our offices and building with a flood of bills. Lawsuits will continue, and until the book is delivered desolations are determined. And he will confirm the contract with the many for one week. And in the midst of that week he will put an end to the bills and the lawsuits. And in a wing of our building he will deliver a bestseller that will stop the abomination of desolation and until the end scads of money will be poured out on him.
I found the conversation very heartening, knowing that even if these guys live like the devil, at least they talk like an angel.

Your unreasoning hatred of Hal Lindsey as well as other prophetic writers is so great that you deliberately resort to distorting his name. This only further serves to discredit you and show you for the kind of person you are.

Oh, get a sense of humor, Mike! You pre-tribbers take everything so seriously. Lighten up, or Jesus will never be able to lift you off the ground when the rapture comes.

Humor such as these keep me on stitches...just as spiritual stories make me drop tears in a jiffy...
