I've just listed 10 very good reasons to purchase "Facing the Giants". It is not my goal to write a review of this movie that spoils the plot, declares one actor better than an other actor, or compares the storyline to another movie.
My review is to let anyone who reads it know that this is a movie worth owning and sitting down to view with the family.
See ya next review!
That leads to why I was extremely disappointed with this movie. Not only was the filming and acting sub par, which is disappointing but definately forgivable, but the message seemed to misrepresent God and His word. It is forgivable that the movie was so predictable that my wife and I were talking about what would happen almost exactly about 10 to 15 minutes before it would happen. It is not forgivable that it sent a wrong message. Since when does the Bible teach that if you submit to Him and are obedient that everything will begin to go right. This sounds like the health and wealth message that is popular today, but was not the story in the scriptures. Have you ever heard or Job, Joseph, Jeremiah, the apostle Paul, and even Jesus Christ. The list could go on, but people who were being obedient and suffered for it and not every thing went right in fact sometimes quite the opposite happens. Church, do we really believe that if we are obedient we will not suffer, we will get all things to go our way. The Bible says quite the opposite. "All who want to live Godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution". "Count it all joy when you face various trials". The list could go on and on. It is true that nothing is impossible with God as the movie states, but that does not mean that God chooses to make everything in life work our way if we are obedient. This is not true to scripture and not true to life. This movie would only work in "American Christianity" where it is believed that obedience equals blessing and a good life.
I am disheartened as a Christian and as a pastor as I have read review after review of this movie claiming that it is the best ever. I am thankful for the efforts of my brothers and sisters, but let's be honest with ourselves about what has been produced.
I pray that some who see this will see that there is an implied message about how God acts that contradicts what is true.
