Following the release of the powerful film on artificial intelligence, iHuman, filmmaker Tonje Hessen Schei’s new political thriller, Praying for Armageddon, exposes the influence of U.S. fundamentalist evangelicals on politics and democracy, with the aim to fulfill the biblical Armageddon prophecy.

“For me, the issue of the power of the U.S. fundamentalist evangelicals is maybe one of the most important issues of today,” Schei told Yahoo Canada.

“Seeing the immense power they have from the grassroots, through megachurch empires, all the way up to the political system in Washington, D.C., is just very concerning to me, especially as they’re threatening democracy and also influencing U.S. foreign policy.”

In Praying for Armageddon, Schei and co-director Michael Rowley are largely guided by journalist Lee Fang, reporter with The Intercept, working to investigate evangelical power and how it directly influences U.S. foreign policy, specifically the country’s relationship to Israel.

“In the tradition of Christianity, there is no single view of the end times,” former evangelical preacher, Frank Schaeffer, explains in the documentary. “But the American evangelical community has latched on to one.”

“Generally, they believe that believers on earth will be raptured to heaven before things get really bad. And that’s the promise to the evangelical, that they will not taste death if Jesus comes back and the rapture occurs in their lifetime.”

From American preachers, like Gary Burd with the Mission M25 biker ministry, to chronicling the function of organizations like Christians Unite For Israel (CUFI), led by John Hagee, Praying for Armageddon is clearly sounding the alarm on the dangers of this influential group.
