The Coming Convergence

This documentary’s creators also made “The Final Prophecies,” which I reviewed last year, and in that review I said this:

“…and the film, despite its focus on “prophecy” — barely seems to mention Jesus Christ’s saving grace and the fact that Satan truly exists, and wants to literally damn humanity to Hell. Prophecy is a nice subject, but if there’s no reason for people to believe (God’s love and compassion), that makes it a hard sell.”

Unfortunately, their new film misses the mark yet again. About 20-25% of the film is just a random pretty girl walking aimlessly (through what looks like Detroit), while she narrates confusing and cryptic dialogue to a bewildered audience. Basically, a massive chunk of the film’s total run-time is complete nonsense, and will only turn away non-Christians if they watch it.

And does the film cover Jesus Christ or Satan? Nope, not really. Yet again, the people making these films omit these two figures almost completely (this makes you wonder if the films’ creators simply want to avoid all talk of Jesus and Satan!).

Now, a few minor things like the increasing number of earthquakes and massive volcanoes being found in the ocean are neat, but when things like “No one knows the day or hour” is brought up, the film suggests an answer I have never heard before in my life. Even more bizarrely, the film doesn’t talk about the Rapture whatsoever, barely discusses the Antichrist and avoids all talk of the Tribulation. This feels like a generic prophecy film aimed at all audiences, by saying nothing of real value.

I rented this for $4.99 from Amazon and — even if it was free — I wouldn’t watch it again, and wouldn’t recommend it to other Christians … and definitely not nonbelievers.
