Add to the fact that OPrime has died and been resurrected multiple times, provides for several cross continuity points that could be very intriguing.
Though it has plenty of religious symbolism, to call it an "allegory" would be far from accurate. It merely takes elements and references from assorted religions to create its own unique mythos and with the intention of making the series more "exotic and unique", rather maintain the original meanings behind the references it alludes to.
The Chronicles of Narnia would be a better example of a Christian allegory, whereas Neon Genesis Evangelion is something else entirely and very likely wouldn't be approved of by members of some of more conservative religious groups.
