Is Serving the Antichrist "Pressing Toward the Mark"?

The following quote was taken from the Visions of Hope Christian Book Review webpage:

"In the book, Tribulation Force, sequel to the bestseller Left Behind, Rayford Steele and Cameron Williams find themselves pressed into service for the man they believe could be the antichrist. Nicolae Carpathia takes over the United Nations, signs a peace treaty with Israel, and begins to lure the nations of Earth together to form one global village. Meanwhile, the judgment of God begins to fall on the earth."


Rayford and Buck were indeed "pressed into service" for the man they knew was the Antichrist, but is being "pressed into service" to work for Satan's head man on earth the kind of pressing a Christian is to dedicate himself to? Is serving the highest-level Satanist in the world pressing toward mark of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus? (Phil. 3:14)

And as far as being pressed, they both could have said "No" and taken the consequences of a demotion or even being fired. Or any consequence, for that matter. They would have, as true Christians, most definitely said "No" but the authors chose to have them sin grossly against God (and be paid more than handsomely for it) so that good - getting inside information for the Tribulation Force - would come forth from evil.  "And not rather, (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just." Romans 3:8

This is the worst kind of pragmatism, and the example it sets will be fatal if believed by the multitude who read and consider these books to be examples of Christian behavior and doctrine in these last days.

Next we'll explore how the authors set up the readers to view Rayford's and Buck's decisions to work for the Antichrist and how they made it seem like they were obeying God in doing it.  See:
