Left Behind Soundtrack, Confusion and Irony

The Left Behind Soundtrack came out in October of 2000. I find it amusing, to say the least, that two of the songs on the CD contain lyrics that are blatantly opposed to the pre-trib rapture, which is the foundation beneath the entire series. I’m unsure if the songs made it onto the CD because those in charge had no biblical understanding, or if they just didn’t care, and were glad to have as many big name artists as possible to make more money. Either way, it happened, and I’m once again amazed.

I strongly suggest you listen to these two songs if you haven’t. Only a buck at iTunes. A portion of their lyrics are posted below to show how clear the songs are, and that the mistake should have been obvious to the producers. The mention of the sign in the sun, moon, and stars taking place before the gathering of the elect shows us where Rebecca St. James and Third Day stand on the issue. In my mind, this is enough of a reason to buy their albums.

Rebecca St. James, Come Quickly Lord

You're close, very close
But Lord I miss You
Here's where I find hope
You're coming soon
And I long so much to see You - that I cry
Everywhere are the signs that the end is near
I say

Come quickly, Lord
When the sun grows dark
And the moon will shine no more
Quickly Lord
When the stars fall out of the sky above
Won't You come, dear Lord
Come dear Lord, dear Lord

Third Day, Sky Falls Down

People talkin' like it's the end of time
I look up to the heavens for a sign
Everybody's lookin' at me
But I won't be deceived or afraid
'Cause I know that the sun is on the way
Sky falls down
It crumbles into the sea
The sun goes out
He's coming back for me
I'll be found at the place
Where the gravity leaves the ground
I won't be comin' down

Dave, thanks for the chuckle I got from reading your post. You said, "I’m unsure if the songs made it onto the CD because those in charge had no biblical understanding, or if they just didn’t care..." yea, I would think both.

Thanks,
