* CozyCatastrophe: Somehow worldwide famine, pestilence, and a nuclear war have almost no impact on the random Chicago suburb the first several books are set in.

Has been made into [[Film/LeftBehind2000 three direct-to-video films]], the first of which saw a brief theatrical release the week ''after'' the video hit the stores. It's also spun off into graphic novels, a series of young adult novels (with teen protagonists experiencing these events in their own way), and even a PC game, which has a sequel due out soon. Incidentally, the PC game gained criticism from JackThompson, who claimed it was incompatible with basic Christian doctrine (on account of all the killing) and that it encouraged religious bigotry, which says something about both the quality of and messages contained in the game [[EvenEvilHasStandards and about Jack Thompson.]]

* ChristianityIsCatholic: Averted. The heroes of the series are primarily Protestant or converted Jews and Muslims, with only the Catholic pope before Peter Mathews and the priest of a Catholic congregation in South America being CaughtUpInTheRapture while the majority of Catholics become part of the CorruptChurch known as Enigma Babylon One World Faith. Leonardo Fortunato, the False Prophet, was raised on Catholicism, but he mostly liked it for the tradition of its priests wearing robes, so it's no surprise that when he became the High Reverend Father of Carpathianism, he was starting to dress in rather fanciful religious robes that try to incorporate every possible religious symbol except for Christianity and Judaism.

* BigNo: In the Dramatic Audio of ''Glorious Appearing'', Leon Fortunato utters this (half-screaming, half-crying, actually) as he is hauled to the pit which will send him and Carpathia to the Lake of Fire.

** "Ladies and gentlemen, we have an urgent news bulletin! A minor reporter from the midwest who you have never heard of and who nobody but his 3 friends give a flying fuck about, is feared dead following a "mysterious car bombing"! In other news, all children in the entire world vanished last night, experts say it was likely the result of "excess electromagnetism" or some shit, so in other words we have no idea and it could happen again to all of us at any second. In sports news..."

* WorstNewsJudgmentEver: Every child on the planet has just disappeared, along with a great many Christians. The planet is plagued by horrific plane crashes and car accidents as a result. UsefulNotes/ThePope himself is gone, and the Catholic church has fallen into disarray. What stories do ''Global Weekly'' consider the most important to cover? A convention of Jews in New York, and a recent recall election in Romania. This stuff wouldn't be front page material on a ''slow'' day.

** The fact that UsefulNotes/AirForceOne is getting a new pilot is big news. Despite the fact that the pilot of Air Force One is, you know, an ''Air Force'' pilot and wouldn't be hired off the street. While arguably a prestigious position, even aviation magazines probably aren't going to be covering this event in light of everything else that's happened to that point.
