Intriguing. How is the scenario of this Bible Camp scarier than untold numbers of young people sitting around playing video games which simulate murdering prostitutes and homeless? The leader of the camp appears to be a sincere lady with a nice sense of humor who's taken on a unique job. Some parents spend hundreds to send their wee ones to beauty pageant camps or sports camps. These parents choose to awaken the spiritual side of their children. This camp experience is not something your average evangelical even knows about, but I see nothing nefarious about it and everything hopeful.

Evangelicals : a cult in disguise of a religion using jesus and the bible to push their political agenda. They target the young, impressionable, and uneducated.

A scary example of what happends when you have zeal without knowledge or wisdom...as a parent I was very troubled by this film- what did they leave out I wonder its propbably so rotten they left it out! Who knows but surely these poor kids are being worked up into an emotional frenzy by leadership too quick to lay burdens far too big on little shoulders not able to carry such things at a young age..you can see that after hours of unrelenting shouting, loud music and wacked out doctrines these children are brought to a place of surrender/trance like states (or else) complete cult tactics here- emotional manipulation, guilt trips and tearfull confusion.. oh and the fasting- for how long were they under such needless duress? Have the parents completely gone mad to send their kids to be programed like this??I would never allow my kid to be subjected to such..
I'm a beleiver and I've been to some powerfull prayer meets but it never fell into the turmoil & confusion we see here--There was a deep peace-and a deep stillness-no one was prompted by others-or cued by music to 'do something'-there was liberty!!
I can hope camps like this run out of funds so they cannot ruin another generation with their tyranny. May those kids be set free from leaders who know not the Spirit of love and mercy. Cheers..

An in-depth look at a bible camp used to indoctrinate children and 'lock them in' to certain religious commitments, which even featured then president George W. Bush. The camp leader even was yelling about how this is war, and how the bible tells us to wage war. By contrast, there is a Christian radio host raises concerns about this approach to indoctrinating children to be used as political tools.

I just finished watching this documentary, and I am kind of freaked out about it. Brain washing little kids is messed up. Scary is the word that is most often mentioned in the comments here because it is the word that comes to mind throughout watching this documentary.

This movie made me sick. I had no clue what the Evangelist church was all about either. I feel bad for those absolutely brainwashed kids.

Let me get my bias out of the way - I'm not a christian. So if you want to dismiss this on that basis, fine. If you are offended, sorry.

But I found this to be sad and scary. Words like cult and brainwashing come to mind. I don't know if the filmmakers used the most extreme material they could find to make a point but it appears to me the extreme right is coming to take over the world and if they can't, they want to make sure their kids can.
