So our protagonist is sent forward to NextSundayAD, figuratively speaking--specifically, 1999. He deals well enough with most of the technology, but the culture throws him--[[FridgeBrilliance he's isolated even relative to his own culture, remember!]] Dress codes, the lack of respect for elders, and films and TV throw him. Even the Christians of his era find him a bit kooky...

Also, at [[{{stinger}} end]] of the technology, movie, they are attempting to send a bible in the future but it will not go if the culture throws him--[[FridgeBrilliance he's isolated even relative to his own culture, remember!]] Dress codes, end of the lack world already happened by then, so he keeps on changing the date earlier to see when the end of respect for elders, the world takes place, and films and TV throw him. Even the Christians of his era find him a bit kooky... movie cuts off somewhere in the 2000s.

Doesn't seem like a Broken Aesop, since "you can only be a good person if you accept the Lord" seems to be the message the filmmakers intended.
* BrokenAesop: Russell's original manuscript was actually rather progressive ([[TheFundamentalist for him]]), as it advocated being a good person and doing good deeds because it's the morally right thing to do, rather than doing so because of your religious faith. In the end, he's convinced by the "evil" future where people actually follow this and have become more non-secular as a result, that you can ''only'' be a good person if you accept the Lord.
