I guess this week is “movie edition.”
A number of much-hyped movies related to Biblical themes and issues have been released lately or are on the verge of being released. Answer in Genesis has some good, thought-provoking articles on whether these are worthwhile to see and how to respond them. If you’re thinking about seeing or taking people to see these, you owe it to yourself to be informed about them to see if you still want to do so or if you want to prepare your group for what they will see.
- God’s Not Dead movie review – sounds like a good, timely wake-up call… but at the expense of the authority of God’s written Word?
- Noah – links to some long and short reviews of Hollywood taking a LOT of artistic license. Read the true story in Genesis 6-9.
- Are Visits to Heaven for Real? by John MacArthur (here because of the upcoming release of a movie based on a popular book about a boy’s alleged heaven experience)
- An Examination of Christian Entertainment Choices and the Noah Movie
- Christians and Movies: Are We Contextualizing or Compromising? by Trevin Wax
- Noah Movie HD Full Version – Ray Comfort – in this 30 minute film, Comfort talks about the real Noah, how the days of Christ’s return will be wicked times (like those of the days of Noah), and also asks some pointed questions about Christians and what people watch.
