As such, this error exists primarily because of poor research rather than as a conscious decision on the part of the filmmakers. The kingdom ruled by Christ will come to earth from heaven with the power and the authority of God. What are some things Jesus declared about the Kingdom? Also, we do not sign up for benefits reserved for citizens of the world. Like Balian, Luther was faced with a a crises of what to make of this.
