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."

When The Music's Over
11 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

WAITING FOR Armageddon was so disturbing, on so many different levels, that it is hard to take seriously, yet, I still think that it is 'Must See' cinema. For the very simple reason that all informed Americans should know exactly what the enemy is up to. This film provides a terrifying look at a particular facet of America's Christian Fundamentalists Movement which appears to be largely populated by nitwits too weak to live in the real world who spend ungodly amounts of time fantasizing about 'The End of Times'. They seem to be largely ignorant of the New Testament's message of love and understanding, yet chock full of power-point presentations as to how the 'Book of Revelations' is just about to occur. Who cares about Global Warming or the mountain of debt, both personal and public, because Jesus will be here momentarily.

Send these clowns on a one way trip to Branson Missouri.
