I know there are many out there attacking the movie “Son of God.” They are saying the movie does not completely and perfectly follow the Bible, not made by Christians, blah blah blah. I have read their hate for the movie on a few blogs and I get really sick of mean Christians that are overly critical and self-righteous. We should all pay a little more attention to what Jesus said about the Pharisees, and never become like them.
Wendy, the kids, and I, saw the movie last night. I was moved to tears more than once. Yes, it is true, it does not follow the Bible exactly, but it is clear that Jesus is proclaimed as the Savior, Messiah, and faith in Him is the key. His teachings are pretty accurate and from Scripture, but worded differently than my NASB. My favorite scene was when Jesus called Levi the tax collector. Wow! I loved it.
It is moving, It is creative and did take some liberties. But it declared Jesus the Son of God, and for that I rejoice!
I highly recommend it. I don’t for kids that are younger. The abuse, flogging, crucifixion, and treatment of Jesus is pretty graphic. I felt it was accurate. We will go see all kind of fictional movies, violent movies, sports movies, why not go see one that is about the life of Christ. It is a very good movie. Get out to see it while you can.
I left thankful, and grateful, for the mercy and love God the Father, shows toward us and for the sacrifice of Jesus so I could be saved, forgiven, and live eternal.
