As we've released this Omega Course, we've heard from a few folks (usually through back channels) that the study of the end times is irrelevant and people just don't care. To those folks, allow me to make the following comparison.
If you took everyone to attended all 256 NFL games and put them in one spot (a big spot, say...Wyoming), then added all of the people who attended one of the 1230 NBA games last season and put them along side the NFL attendees, you'd have a big honkin' crowd....around 29 million people.(1) Impressive, and a nightmare for porta potties, I'm sure.
Yet in order to match the number of people who have purchased a book in the Left Behind series, you'd need to take both those crowds and add the metropolitain populations of the following cities:
- St. Louis
- Kansas City
Growing pains, indeed.
Tell me again about people not being interested. Maybe it's just that we're uncomfortable because we've ignored the topic.
