* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Some Evangelical Christians felt that what was shown in the film wasn't typical of normal Evangelism because in their particular brand of Evangelism they don't speak in tongues, which is a key aspect of the Pentecostal Evangelism depicted in the film.
** These differences are hugely important to the faiths in question. They may look virtually identical to outsiders, but they differ drastically on important points of doctrine. Speaking in tongues is one of the [[BerserkButton most controversial differences]] because of what it implies about the nature of salvation.

Added DiffLines:

** Becky includes a brief rant about Franchise/HarryPotter in one of her sermons, shouting that "warlocks are enemies of God" and that Harry Potter should be killed. Later, some kids at a meal discuss Harry Potter, and all but one claim that they are not allowed to watch it "because of witchcraft". When one boy says that he just watches the movies at his dad's house, the other boys react with shock.

->''"I want to see young people who as committed to the cause of Jesus Christ as their young people are to the cause of Islam. I want to see them as radically laying down their lives for the Gospel as they are over in Pakistan and Israel and Palestine and all those different places, you know, because we have... excuse me, but we have the truth!''"

** Because to these people, if you have a condition you should pray for God to heal it; if it doesn't get better, you're not praying hard enough.

* ScienceIsBad: Levi says "personally, I think Galileo made the right choice giving up science for Christ." In reality, Galileo was hauled to the Inquisition because he wanted his theories to have the theological backing of the Church, that is: he wanted for his views to ''become'' dogma. Given that he couldn't satisfactorily explain inconsistencies in his theories (he had circular orbits, not elliptical ones, his theory of tides was off the rocker, etc.) he was condemned to house arrest and given a rather large stipend, as well as the freedom to talk about his theories as theories and not dogma. Meaning Galileo actually didn't give up much in terms of science.
* ScienceIsWrong: The children are taught that science is wrong about the big bang, evolution, and global warming.
