** A 4Chan quest appropriately titled Left Beyond, which takes the last 100 years of the Millennial Kingdom and attempts to build a scenario in which The Other Light fight back through AwesomenessByAnalysis - given the significant time span, what starts off as a semi-realistic scenario ends with a NinjaPirateZombieRobot or two. You can find it at http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=left%20beyond

* MarySuetopia / CrapsaccharineWorld: Jesus Christ's Millennial Reign in ''Kingdom Come'' is a utopia for "naturals" [[ReligionIsRight as long as they obey God's laws]]. They have all the amenities of the technological world, have eternal life, perpetual sunshine, no war or violence. Even non-believers can live for a hundred years in perfect health. However, anyone who doesn't become saved by age 100 instantly die and go to Hell. Entire nations are held accountable for failing to give God His due, and their rain will be cut off if they fail. Serious criminals are killed by lightning bolts from the sky, and presumably sent to Hell immediately. From one line in Buck and Chloe's case, TrueBelievers might not even have a sex drive any more. Those that were Raptured or martyred during the tribulation are treated as some sort of ruling elite, with true immortality and superpowers above the others. We never see people of any other religion or viewpoint other than the true believers and the devil-worshiping [[LaResistance The Other Light faction]]. Over the course of time, the Other Light does manage to win enough converts with their manifesto claiming GodIsEvil because of his 100 years of age limit, so that the world at the end of the Millennium becomes a CrapsackWorld again, with the Other Light being a massive army ready to [[FinalBattle defeat God and Jesus Christ]] when [[SealedEvilInACan Satan is released.]] [[CurbStompBattle Guess how that turned out!]] In 4chan's take on the matter, the fight goes just as described... except not quite. http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=left%20beyond

** Verna Zee is constantly presented as a no-fun, [[UnfortunateImplications uppity]] woman who thinks Buck is a pompous {{Jerkass}}. And she's right.

* LoveItOrHateIt: Like a lot of overtly religious stories, Left Behind's interpretation of the rapture, its characters, and its plot, have either been praised or scorned.

** The Jordan River is presented as a huge, broad river with heavy boat traffic, rather than the unnavigable stream it really is. Many Americans, especially those influenced by spirituals, have a tendency to picture the Jordan like the Mississippi, but LaHaye has actually visited Israel and should know better.

** Buck arrives at Penn Station in New York City, walks for miles and miles until he's ready to collapse from exhaustion, finds a bicycle, counts it as a blessing from God, rides it for several miles more, and finally arrives in Midtown Manhattan. The northern border of Midtown Manhattan is at 59th street. The southern border is more disputed, with some placing it at 34th street, others at 23rd street, and some as far south as 14th street. Penn Station is at 34th street. In other words, there is no version of Midtown Manhattan where Buck wasn't already in it the minute he arrived at Penn Station. What's more, the island of Manhattan is only thirteen miles long (with Penn Station being about three miles from the southern tip). There aren't many places in it that require traveling miles and miles and miles to reach.

** At the end of ''Tribulation Force'' and the beginning of ''Nicolae: The Rise of Antichrist'', Nicolae ''finally'' does something properly evil by launching World War III. This takes the form of World War II-style bombing raids targeting such things as hospitals and airports...except that they use ''100-megaton nuclear bombs''. The largest human-caused explosion ''ever'' was [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsar_Bomba Tsar Bomba]], which was a mere ''50'' megatons, but it still destroyed buildings hundreds of kilometers away from the test site. If even ''one'' 100-megaton bomb was dropped on a city, let alone several, that city would not look like London during the blitz (which is what is shown in the book) but a green-glowing glass crater, and it wouldn't matter ''where'' it hit.
