Nicolas Cage Continues Downward Slide by Starring in Christian Apocalypse Movie

According to Badass Digest’s Devin Faraci, Nicolas Cage is in talks to star in a remake of Left Behind, the first novel in a series depicting a group of people “left behind” after the Christian Rapture occurs. Instead of finally enjoying a little peace and quiet like most of us would, the characters in the novel convert to Christianity and form a paramilitary religious organization called “Tribulation Force”. The novels, written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, were immensely popular among fundamentalist Christians for some time, and have already spawned a few movies, including a straight to video take on Left Behind starring banana-loving moonbat Kirk Cameron. They have also inspired a video game and even a series of children’s books about the “Young Trib Force”. (I’m presuming that the God-botherers behind the books don’t know that “trib” has a different meaning in the secular world.)

Nicolas Cage starring in a Christian apocalyptic movie about the rapture may be more unintentional hilarity than the world can withstand at one time. Maybe the end is coming at last…to Cage’s career.

Here’s a fantastically kitschy scene of the Rapture from the first Left Behind film. Guess those passengers unlucky enough to be in a plane piloted by a Christian get to die a horrific death and go straight to Hell courtesy of the Lord’s infinite mercy. No second chance – no “tribbing” in the Trib Force – for them.

    This is why heretics shouldn’t be allowed to make movies.

  3. I once saw a lesbian porno called “Sweet Trib’ulations Holy Matrimoany”. Kirk Cameron’s disowned sister produced. None of this is true. Oh shit I’m getting raptured, false alarm it was an alien.

    I’d go see it if Cage was playing Ghost Rider.

    When you take the idea of ‘the rapture’ to its logical conclusion, it does seem quite absurd. It is most likely beyond the scope of our comprehension, and not to be speculated upon, Nicholas Cage.

    Was it Hitchcock who likened actors to cattle. They’re certainly whores. After all, starting out they’d sell their mother to get a cereal commercial. Of course, when they make it we are supposed to take their opinions seriously. Burn Hollywood Burn.

  19. This is exciting news! Cage is only one racist rant away from pulling a perfect Gibson.

  20. I heard he went Bankrupt. I still love “Adaption” though and “raising Arizona”

    When the Rapture comes, can I have your airplane?

    The rapture is the reason why Christians should not be allowed to hold any position or operate any vehicle where their sudden absence will result in harm or injury to non-believers. If for no other reason than to ensure the Christians do not violate a commandment that might disqualify them from going to Heaven.

  24. There will be no atheists in hell!

    • He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:18

  25. The rapture will happen whether people believe it or not. I know it is something that you only see in the movies because people do not disappear in every day life. It is found in the Bible. So is the New World Order that past Presidents have talked about and our current President is working on. It is ready to emerge but first Jesus will return in the rapture to snatch His followers to heaven. The entire scenario about the upcoming war with Israel and the nations is also found in Ezekiel 38. We already see tensions in the Middle East. If you’ve never believed in the Bible, now is the time to believe. All you have to do is watch the news and read the Bible to see that things go hand in hand. Everything in Matthew 24 is happening now in our world. These are all signs that point to Jesus’ 2nd coming to earth to set up His Kingdom. First, the rapture will take place where millions of people all over the world will be snatched up to heaven.

    1 Thessalonians 4:16-18

    New International Version (NIV)

    16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.

    Sadly, those who heard and didn’t believe, will be astonished when this event happens. According to the Bible, it will be very soon because the New World Order is about to take over. First, Jesus will return. Don’t be left behind. Choose Jesus now. He is the only way to heaven. Confess your sins and make Him Lord of your life before it’s too late. Otherwise, one day soon, you will remember this conversation.

  26. The clip above is nothing compared to the real chaos that will be going on. I am sorry for all those left behind. I really am. http://voices.yahoo.com/millions-people-missing-jesus-christ-has-returned-5003316.html?cat=34

    No “second chance?” Really? God has been sounding the alarm since the fall of mankind. You’ve been given a million chances to believe in the death, burial and resurrection of His son Jesus Christ. With every breath, you choose your destiny.

    • Matthew 24:13 “But he that shall endure (THE TRIBULATION) unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” …… They will have another chance, but like it says, “he (the ones that will only wake up after the rapture) will have to endure to the end to be saved. Thank God were already saved

        This passage was written to ISRAEL, as you will see…it’s right under your nose throughout the four Gospels as well as a great deal of Acts. “YE MEN OF ISRAEL.” Yes, Israel will got through the tribulation (except for Messianic Jews), and the 144,000 from the 12 tribes of Israel will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom throughout the world. This is after the “rapture” of the church, which is clearly discussed in both Thess. and Song of Solomon.

    And besides…Nicholas Cage is smart…this film will be a huge money-maker. Unless those of us who are believers are raptured before it comes out.

    • The rapture is probably going to happen before this movies comes out, and then they will all be running to see it.
