One of the worst movies I've ever seen

I was expecting a feel-good Christmas movie with a Biblical background and message. Instead, this was entirely creepy, never showed the scene of presenting gifts to the Messiah, and I believe actually espouses Zoroastrianism and says that Jesus went east to study (apparently Zoroastrianism) with the Magi, which is entirely unBiblical. I found the movie on FaithChannel, and don't have any idea why it would be there and am going to submit a complaint.
