Ignorance, narcissism, and a dash of vanity
This movie was AWFUL. And this is not coming from an Athiest's perspective.
This film is the prime example of why people think Christians everywhere are loony bible heads with nothing better to do than to tell you, "Your going to hell"
And that was literally the message of the whole thing. Actual quotes taken from the movie consisted of "if you don't believe in God, your going to hell" "if you don't love him your going to hell" "Even if you think he wronged you, don't try to question the situation, just love him regardless. Because he loves you. And he loves you because you love him. And if you don't, your going to hell"
This self righteous, ignorant attitude is what's going to "send you to hell" I'm so sick of the false teaching and moronic example shown by the church. Its like the Westboro baptist church filmed this. I beg you, please don't take ANYTHING said in this movie seriously, it almost seems as if it's main goal is to turn people off to even the idea of Christ.
Keep your mind open, realize there's a difference between faith and blind impulsive ignorant behavior, don't be afraid to question everything, even your faith. And realize God doesn't require you to be "bound to the rules" and live a perfect life to be accepted into heaven.
I'm only writing this article from a religious standpoint because really, that's what the movie was about.
I've yet to see a good rapture movie out there, but I can promise you (unless you actually like the idea of being stuck in spiritual chains) that this film will disappoint you and leave you with useless knowledge, and less money (if you payed to watch it)
