Matter of Time, A: The War For the Truth


“It’s the near future, and the Bible is under attack as never before. No longer does it stand as the inspired word of God, but according to the government, a book of hate used by religious fanatics to spread a message of fear and hell. It is a time where wrong is right, and good is being labeled as hate. Hunted by a merciless government hit-man, four friends must take a stand for the one thing left fighting for…they must protect a precious briefcase that contains one of the last remaining unedited copies of the Bible. When the final showdown comes, only two men will be left and one of them must be willing to die for the Truth he believes in.

From Soncas Films comes the sobering look at the consequences of post-modernism in our churches and the effect that it will have in times to come. A movie packed with action provocative message which will leave you wondering if the death of Truth really is, ” A Matter of Time.”

Dove Review

It is August 2030 in Canada. Christians cannot speak their views on homosexuality and what the Bible says about it. Military groups are chasing down the Christian groups who are attempting to spread the word of God underground. Many are dying for their faith. With the ever changing editions of the Bible, one man notes you can hardly tell it is the Bible. A pastor in the film preaches a wishy washy sermon that doesn’t offend anyone and really doesn’t say anything.

This futuristic vision certainly makes some points about holding fast to one’s beliefs. It does, however, feature a lot of fighting and military scenes and it is for more of a sophisticated audience. The movie also includes some rather blasphemous statements against the Bible and the author (God) but they are uttered by the bad guys in the film. The film does realistically show what could happen in the future. It should be noted it has a twist in the end. Because of its important message, we recommend it for ages twelve and above and gladly award this movie our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal. Let’s hope it is not a matter of time for people sitting on a fence to decide to get on fire for their faith and convictions.
