Left Behind Movie Review-Dave Thrush

 I saw the movie (Left Behind) this afternoon, and liked it, the people in the theater liked it, It held my attention, no, it's no Lord Of the Rings but it's not supposed to be... I went specifically because so many people (including a lot of Christians) have given this film bad reviews... ( whatever happened to think different? for all my Apple product loving friends) from what I can tell, Christian movies are now NOAH with the Bible so twisted up that it's unrecognizable and Kaballa religion taking the place of the Old Testament. I find it interesting that a ton of Christians that don't like this film but DO like movies like NOAH that perverted the bible story into a grotesque form barely recognizable, or Harry Potter for instance which may have some moral value but clearly no Christian values in fact those films pushed magic, clearly forbidden in scripture. I've seen a lot of people bashing this film but who support films that are clearly not in the least Christian at all...there's clearly an agenda that many who want this film to fail I think aren't admitting, why, is a question they have to ask themselves...I've read reviews of this film (including Christianity today) that have said things about the film makers of left behind and Nicholas Cage saying they're just doing it for the money...except Nic Cages brother is a PASTOR who prodded him into doing this film. My question for those people who accuse Nic Cage or the producers of this film what do you think the producers of NOAH and Russell Crowe were after? were they producing and acting for free? Are the producers of Harry Potter who netted Billions from those films after altruism? I have no idea if the Rapture will happen, or if so, when because as the producers of this film stated at the end "No man knows the day or the hour". But I do know from scripture itself that in the twinkling of an eye we will all be changed 1 Cor. 15:51-52, and "For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man be". Matt. 24:27
