When a pastor is shaken by the visible faith of a street corner preacher, he is reminded that true belief always requires action. His response ignites a journey that impacts everyone it touches in ways that only God could orchestrate.

The first commercial electricity was in late 1889. As such, the time machine builder would not have had any access to electricity let alone the lights and fancy electrodes. See more »
Without the authority of Christ, mankind is merely left to compare ideas. A morality becomes a matter of opinion. One person says it is wrong to steal, the next person says it is not. No standard is set.

I just wanted to say that not all Christians have their values, intelligence, and morality stuck in the year 1890. However that is message of this film... they seriously expect us to believe that any scientific finding contrary to a strict, literalist, fundamentalist interpretation of Scripture must be in error. They also propose that a completely moral person will be denied salvation unless they profess faith in Christ. This is certainly not the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church to which I belong and it is not the teaching of many mainstream Protestant denominations who are not among the evangelicals or fundamentalist categories.
The only remotely valid argument that appears in this film is that churches often become more social organizations than places of worship.
This film has acting, bad science, and bad Christianity throughout.
I just want people reading these commentaries to understand that not all Christians believe this way so do not condemn us for our ridiculous views because there are Christians out here who do have common sense. In my church there is no "brain check girl" who asks us to check our brains at the door so that we could walk in with an empty head. A well-rounded person makes use of both faith and reason.
