Waiting for Armageddon

WAITING FOR ARMAGEDDON delves into the heart of America’s 50-million member Evangelical community, using intimate portraits and archival footage to explore how literal belief in Biblical prophecy – including the Rapture and Armageddon, exerts a dangerous influence on U.S. relations in the Middle East. The film opens with portraits of three Evangelical families, James and Laura Bagg, a Connecticut couple who work as military jet- propulsion engineers, Tony and Devonna Edwards in McAlester, Oklahoma, and Dr. H. Wayne House in Salem, Oregon,all certain that upon Christ’s Second Coming they will be “raptured” or lifted into the skies to join Christ while the rest of humanity suffers for seven years during “The Tribulation.”

    When a 5-year-old has an imaginary friend, it's kind of cute.

    When this many grown adults with access to the highest echelons of power have an imaginary friend, it gets people killed.

  •  The coming of the Lord the Bible speaks of happened in 70AD with the
    destruction of the temple. Not one stone was left upon another, THEN!
    The prophesy had already been completed THEN! The prophesy of the old
    test happened in New test. time! It is already done! Americanized
    Christianity has shifted the Bible's meaning for today when it is not
    for today.Those people then lived through it. American Christians are
    ruining the planet because of a HUGE error and following today's false
    prophets that teach the return will be soon. There will be no return
    today. Christians are "supposed" to be his glory now. I am glad I don't
    follow rapture theology any more.

    So god creates all life, the universe and everything in it. From the largest galaxies to the tiniest parts of the atom. But he needs America to protect Israel?? 

    And muslims want to make everyone a muslim or they will die - whereas fundy xtians just say that unless you accept JC you will die.

    The difference is?

    I find that interesting.  If you are a Christian, you must believe the Bible since it is the basis of Christianity.  Christian means "follower of Christ"  Christ taught that the Scriptures are true.  Christ was either a lunatic, a liar, or exactly who He said He was.  There are no other options.  I believe He was who He said He was.  He stated He was the Son of God and that He and the Father were the same person and that He would return in the flesh.  How can you be a His follower if you don't think He told the truth?

    What other ancient people have gotten their historical land back?  Troy, Hittites, Amorites, Philistines, and many others disappeared forever, why didn't Israel?  That is just one of many questions that can't be answered with any accuracy unless the Bible is the truth.

    The 50 Million Evangelicals will bring about the demise of the United SXtates of America.  They will drown the US in ignorance and stupidity.  I am learning the Chinese language now...

    This doco was really well done and quite interesting ... the only problem being that the people highlighted in this doco are total lunatics. Taking some ancient text to it's literal extreme? You people have got to be kidding
