This review is from: Mind Siege: The Battle for Truth in the New Millennium (Hardcover)I got this book before I went to college, in that liberal age where you want to understand all that is encompassed in this reality. With a lot of open-mindedness, I made it through. Having re-read it recently as an 'upper-middleclass' taxpayer, I'm ashamed to have supported Tim LaHaye with my book purchase.
The problem with the book has nothing to do with words or editing skill. It has to do with several Christian-built-ins post-Reagan. This fanatical Christian-minority really got its foothold there. People like LaHaye have stolen Christianity from the Christians. In this, LaHaye pounds home that Christians need to fight back. Mostly against love, open-ness, understanding, compassion, and other founding Christian principles. He wants us to defend the lunatic fringes view points of inequality amongst sexuality, races, genders, economic principles, social conditions...
It's strange. Christianity was doing fine when it was allowed to be taken for it's good qualities. Don't lie, cheat, steal, kill, etc, it's really easy to get behind these and they bring Christianity out as a force of good. To demand people toe the line to the precise antique, perverted, interpretation of the bible is sick. Hopefully it will have LaHaye's desired effect, to end Christianity and its present influence and present corruption.
