1.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, May 31, 2013

This review is from: Heaven's Door (Amazon Video)
Technically speaking this is written very well & the acting & directing are great. It appears to be a mixture of biblical belief & ancestor belief. The bible teaches that our physically dead loved ones are in Heaven, no longer in the vacinity of the earth, but rather that demons parade as familiar spirits to trick & entice us. According to my bible education believing that they are here on earth in spirit helping us is a false, demonic belief. The angels help us, but everything is done in God's power. This film doesn't mention that it's only by God's power that miracles happen if we believe. It teaches more of 'ancestor' worship, minus God's direct participation. It is my understanding that this is a dangerous belief. The credit for healing is given to Riley & not to God. Also, if God uses one to heal another, that person doesn't take on the illness of the person they healed. However, it would be good to prayerfully sit down with the bible & verify what the bible actually teaches. I gave it one star because it goes against what I believe is a healthy belief in God & a healthy form of worship. You will need to research this for yourself.

It's a movie meant for entertainment, not a philosophical discourse on life altering beliefs. Believe what you want but quit projecting into something meant only for entertainment.

You sound very hostile. Peace! Promote peace! We are all entitled to our feelings & opinions. You sound like you would prefer to live in a concentration camp where there is no freedom.

I sound like someone that would prefer living in a concentration camp because I object to you using a movie review to spread your idea of religion? Wow, and you say "promote peace?"
I'm not at all hostile and I value freedom more than most.
You're right, everyone is entitles to their opinions and beliefs.
A movie review is not an appropriate venue for preaching your religious beliefs.

Sheela says:
I wasn't preaching. I was just stating my feelings & why I feel the way I do. It's helpful to state why one feels a certain way about something, so others will understand where one is coming from. I have good debates with folks where each is allowed to state what they feel & why. That's true freedom & a great way to learn.

Freedom of speech includes preaching in a movie post.

Thank you Sheela for your insights. I am a christian and do not like to watch movies that are antithetical to scripture. Entertainment should not be in opposition to our beliefs so it is good to know this, and I appreciate you taking the time to discuss it.

My Bible doesn't teach that "demons parade as familiar spirits to trick & entice us". You must be looking at some other interpretation.

Sheela, never be afraid to bring truth, the light to the world. As you can see when light hits darkness, darkness fights back but light will overcome. John 1:5 - And the lights shines in the darkness and the darkness comprehended it not.
