2014: Year of the Christian films or Christians crucifying them?

Films about God are making their way through Hollywood. How has that occurred?

Some question their validity and maybe with good reason, but we should never underestimate God.  Whatever God uses to bring a soul to him need not be examined. He can take the images, words and even Hollywood drama to open doors for those who know very little or zilch about Him.

Solomon, Esther, the Book of Esther, The Story of Ruth have been on TV this weekend. Considered “Women of the Bible” series, there are differences; diversions and deviations. However, if one truly knows the stories and the Biblical interpretation, determining the truth isn’t problematic. We as Christians should be careful not to exploit the legalistic views by nit-picking this and that.

Reading more in depth about Solomon and his famous father King David, it jars the mind how God used them mightily even in the midst of their adulterous affairs, murder and lack of self-control. As with many Biblical men and women, their personal faults are no different than ours. Yet we tend to crucify that which we know nothing about without giving God any room to alter the direction.

Who are we to determine what God may do with an atheist film about “Noah?”

Who are we to decide God’s intervention in the “Son of God” after the 2 Christian makers are thrown curve balls of being in the New Age movement?

Don’t get me wrong. I am not advocating anything here. Each individual is subject to God.

How can we throw stones at today’s versions of Biblical accounts with those of King David’s murder? Or Solomon’s love of way too many women?

It isn’t justifiable.

We don’t know their hearts. God does.

And….we are not God.1506054_770527439637946_556783362_n

  1. We tend to look at the flaws and mistakes, but I believe God looks at whether or not people are drawn to His Son, Jesus.

  2. This is the best piece I’ve read so far on the current atmosphere of the Movies of God! Nice job.
