's successful new film, The Omega Code, proves once again what evangelicals have known all along: You don't have to be a media mogul to make a decent movie.

While The Omega Code is occasionally lacking in the techno wizardry so common in similar films movies exploring end times scenarios such as Armageddon it makes up for it with a good plot.

The film, underwritten by Crouch's father, Paul replica watches uk, who runs the California based (Channel 14 in Houston), explores key points in the New Testament book of Revelation concerning the end of the world.

The movie looks at the end times in a fictional way using the Bible code as its basis. The code is based on the premise that scholars have uncovered the key to "the Bible code," an ancient mathematical equation applied to the Bible's first five books, usually called the Pentateuch or the books of Moses.

Lane once thought his mentor could do no wrong. But he is forced to flee to an empty ancient monastery and eventually become a fugitive who must attempt to save the world by exposing Alexander's true motives.

While 's portrayal of Lane is occasionally flawed by overexuberance, is believably idealistic, then sinister, as Alexander. Particularly well done are: the dark side character of Dominic, portrayed by , and the portrayals of two prophets of God replica breitling bentley 6.75, by and .

Shot on location at sites including Rome and Jerusalem, The Omega Code is timely, and well worth watching if end times fiction and nonfiction fascinate you.

The gap between Hollywood and conservative American Christians is most obvious in several scenes featuring what is intended but fails to be sophisticated banter. When Hollywood portrays evangelical or Pentecostal Christians, it usually gets it wrong or creates silly caricatures. The same may hold true when the roles are reversed.
