“The Second Coming of Christ” features an interesting plot about the apocalypse and a unique take on how the end times might unfold. A Blight hits all the plants on the Earth, resulting in the death of them all, and this results in a domino effect. Animals die, and insects and people are left starving, due to the lack of vegetables and meat.
Survival is one of the plot devices, as is the need for trust in God. The devil shows up in human form, and people sell their souls to him for provisions. A preacher named John shares the good news of God’s love as well as what meager amounts of food he has. He offers them hope. A woman, who is a scientist, briefly has a relationship with the “human” devil but then cries out to God in the end.
We are pleased to award this film our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12 and older. The film includes a few odd statements, which are mentioned in our content listing under “other,” but the film, overall, does a good job in pointing the way to Jesus as mankind’s only hope.
