For my purposes, I'm going to address the well-intentioned "The Genesis Code" as a movie and not as any sort of ideological treatise. I know that the film caters to a particular Christian based audience, but again--this is simply a movie review and not a discourse on what people should or should not believe. The basic premise behind "The Genesis Code," however, is one that intrigues me. With a degree in Biology, I firmly believe in the sciences and the principles of Evolution. I have never thought that the existence of Evolution discounted the presence of a higher being, though. To my way of thinking, the two things do not disprove one another but I have never taken the Bible as a literal history. "The Genesis Code" does. Its characters try to reconcile the timeline presented in Genesis with the timeline presented by Evolution, saying that both are correct.
The film stars a likable Logan Bartholomew as a star college hockey player whose mother is in a coma. One day he meets a devout school reporter (Kelsey Sanders) assigned to cover his story.Read more ›
When we meet Blake we are brought in to the midst of a personal struggle of faith. He has gone through the loss of his father and is watching his mother slowly die of pancreatic cancer. Because of these circumstances he has decided that he doesn't believe in a loving God that the Bible talks about. I believe he said it is just a book of fables.
Kerry is the heroine in the story. She is tenacious at wearing down the barriers that Blake has constructed around himself and his beliefs. Who wouldn't be proud to have Kerry as their daughter? Don't get me wrong Kerry also has her struggles but she diligently pursues the answers to what God would have her do.
The Wells family is a wonderful example of what we as Christians should be. Kerry's brother Marc has an amazingly scientific mind that puts him at odds with what the Bible teaches. I absolutely loved the way that the movie showed the family embrace Marc as one of their own while still gently guiding him towards the truth.
Without giving anything away, I must say that Marc's presentation on how science and the Bible can both be right was powerful. In fact it was so powerful that I just had to go back and watch it again.
My favorite line of the movie is, "If we are patient science will eventually catch up with the Bible." This movie has the potential to offend many, but it also has the potential of bringing about a lot of thought provoking debate.
I would recommend this movie for junior high and up.Read more ›
