Hollywood might have tried to cancel conservative, Christian actor Kevin Sorbo but, despite its hate and anti-Christian, anti-conservative biases, he’s not out and is coming back in a huge way, just in time for what’s going on right now.
What’s he doing to make his comeback? Creating a sequel to the famous “Left Behind” movie series, a collection of films about life after the Rapture for those who weren’t taken up by God. The movies were based on the “Left Behind” book series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins.
The sequel will be called “Left Behind: Rise of the Antichrist” and debut in theaters next month and Sorbo will star in it, taking over in the lead role in place of Nicholas Cage, who starred in the 2014 film. Sorbo, discussing the timing of the film and its release in an interview with Fox News Digital, said:
“And I look at it and I’m like maybe this is a blessing. Because you look at the chaotic world we’re living in right now. It’s almost biblical. It’s almost got a revelation theme going to it in a way. So I found it interesting that it did end up where it’s at right now. And I don’t know, maybe this was meant to happen and come out now but it just seems like the time is right.”
Sorbo has also suggested that the Rapture could be near, given the state of the world today, saying:
“I’m not one of those guys that stands at a corner and says, ‘The end is near.’ I don’t know when it’s going to happen. It could be 1,000 years from now. I don’t know. I don’t pretend like I know. Reading ‘Revelation’ and looking at what that book says, and reading the ‘Left Behind’ books, which I read many, many years ago, it just seems like wow, this is like a perfect set-up to what’s happening right now in the world with all the chaos, the anger, the hatred, the divisiveness. And I said if there’s ever a time for Jesus to come back, it seems like the right time to do it.”
Further, Sorbo said that, in his opinion, there is a need for faith-based movies, saying “I think every movie’s got a faith-based element to it. I have atheist friends, I’ve got agnostic friends, we have great chats and talks about it all the time. But there is a need for it.”
Emphasizing that point, Sorbo then said “There’s 80 million homes out there that want this kind of product.” Adding yet more to his opinion about the market for Christian movies, Sorbo said “I think there’s a need for more of these. I think more and more people want to see movies with a positive message, not all the negative, angry hatred messages that Hollywood keeps putting out in their movies and TV shows.”
So Sorbo is back and Christian films are making a comeback with him. Let’s hope this one does well and helps people get their lives straightened out and back on the right path.
