I liked it even though some of the teachings were not biblical such as declaring a group fast which included a little baby to have its baby formula taken away from the mother. The leader also predicted down to the very night of Jesus's return. I'm thankful it didn't show the leader sleeping with all the ladies though it seems they all followed his prophecies he could have told them GOD wanted him to sleep with them and got away with it. Everyone was cut off from their families which is a behavior of cult members and told what to do all the time. Their days were spent in total silence without TV, radios, cells or telephones. The ending was kind of expected, but then if you know your Bible, it was totally expected. Thanks Amazon for continuing to bring us thought provoking documentaries and movies.
It was nothing like I thought it would be and I like movies like that where you are completely surprised. I actually don't like watching movies where you know in your head what is going to happen and it actually happens.
"As It Is In Heaven" is about an apocalyptic cult of around 20 members that lives under twisted pseudo-christian theology. The cult is led by a "prophet" who claims knowledge of the end of the world. Like all cults, nobody in the group knows much about the Bible. Apparently every member missed the Book of Matthew, which states that no one knows when the end is coming -- not even Jesus -- but the Father alone. (Matt. 24:36)
Problems arise when the prophet's authority starts to be challenged by some of the members. The movie was slow and not memorable.
