Review by A Lenk (posted on 16-May-2007)
I believe that this film portrayed only a small part of the youth of the world (America is not the only country in the world and generally Believers in Jesus should be a part of God's Kingdom and not a nation in particular). I do agree that there is a rising of the youth which was prophesied about 20 years ago by godly men like Bob Jones etc. We do see it in Europe, Africa, America, etc.
People critisize this movie by not having much scripture in it, more 'warfare' I feel that it does take place but the movie only showed parts of the complete picture.
I'm extremely disappointed that the movie showed Ted Haggard as he does not represent the majority of Christians around the world....he is just a very tiny part of it and probably the worst example that could've been used - a total embarrassment! I can think of a million other godly people that could've been given an opportunity in this movie. For me personally, Ted Haggard has not repressented true Christianity at all!
The political move of the movie is also sad as it should not be used as a tool for any political party. We are commanded in the Bible to pray for our leaders and government. As a teacher I do agree with Becky that children need props and I believe she used the "Bush-doll" more as a prop and not a way of 'worshipping' Bush. When we pray for our leaders God will deal with them where they are at in their own lives. I don't think Bush is this amazing picture of a Christian as people portray him to be but that is between him and God, as long as we do as God wants us to do...to pray for and bless our leaders.
The movie in itself...even though it doesn't really portray truth as it is...it's not a kind of movie to just ignore, maybe it is time people start asking questions and not just sweep the move of God under the carpet - if what Becky does is not of God nobody would take notice!
Do you know something we don't?
