Resulted in Him NOT Confessing Christ Before Men
When Buck Cameron met with the Nicolae Carpathia (Antichrist) he was
presented with an opportunity to honor the Lord Jesus Christ...to witness...to
confess Christ before men. He knew very well the person to whom he was speaking
hated God, and he did not know what to say when Nicolae asked him this
question: "What motivates you?"
"Buck prayed quickly and silently. God, Christ, salvation, the Tribulation,
love, friends, lost souls, the Bible, learning, preparing for the Glorious Appearing,
New Hope Village Church, Chloe. These were the things that motivated him, but
should he say that? Should he? God, give me the words!"
The words that "God" supposedly
gave hid the fact that Buck's primary motivation in life was to serve the Lord
"I am motivated by truth
and justice," Buck said flatly."
Nicolae correctly did not perceive this as
an assertion of
loyalty to the Lord Jesus Christ, and the conversation went on unhindered by
Buck's unashamed confession of Christ, because he did not give it.
compromising answer was presented to the reader as relying upon God for an
"When he had relied on God for an answer, he had been given
one. When he ventured out on his own, he had slipped."
The Left Behind authors used this character's dialogue and thinking to influence
the reader to think that God put the compromising words into Buck's mouth!
How was this done? By showing what was in Buck's heart: God, Christ, salvation,
love, lost souls, the Bible, etc. and having the character hesitate to be
upfront about his allegiance to Christ in front of the satanist, and then have
him pray silently to God to give him the compromising words.
It is in the words that God supposedly gave Buck that misrepresents God's
character. God would not have the believer succumb to the fear of man which is a
snare, and instead speak smooth words to please the one who is offering the
Christian an ungodly job position! God most certainly would not influence a
Christian to sin in order to be in the position for a job working for a satanist
organization, which the Antichrist will undoubtedly head up.
Behind Series is filled with misrepresentations of God's character. This
increases and becomes more blatant as the series progresses.
