Storyline

America's 50-million strong Evangelical community is convinced that the world's future is foretold in Biblical prophecy - from the Rapture to the Battle of Armageddon. This astonishing documentary explores their world - in their homes, at conferences, and on a wide-ranging tour of Israel. By interweaving Christian, Zionist, Jewish and critical perspectives along with telling archival materials, the filmmakers probe the politically powerful - and potentially explosive - alliance between Evangelical Christians and Israel...an alliance that may set the stage for what one prominent Evangelical leader calls "World War III."

Best horror movie I have ever watched!
4 March 2015 | by (the companion galaxy just below Andromeda) – See all my reviews

If until now you were not sure whether religions are dangerous and destroying this world, then you'll be sure of it after watching this movie. If until now you thought Christianity is just about love and peace, then you'll revise your views on it after watching this movie.

What puzzles me the most is how it can be that in a country like the USA, a developed nation, that has many of the best universities of the world, 50 million (!) people believe that things that were written 2,000 years ago must be taken literally. This is beyond me. Don't forget: 50 millions only in the USA. How many Evangelicals do you think there are around the globe? There are 800,000,000 Protestants and most of them believe the Bible should be taken literally!

I live in Europe and if someone here said things like the ones people in this movie say, we'd immediately think this person is crazy, would avoid them at all costs and probably call a psychiatric hospital for an ambulance or something!

What's so scary about this is that these people are able to elect presidents like Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, who are Bible literalists and can press buttons.

If you haven't yet, after watching this, watch Jesus Camp (2006). The perfect combination.

Good night. And good luck.
