We saw the “Son of God” Click on my website for my review.


Son of GodI 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.

    Wow, that’s a little harsh. Some people like to critique books, movies, etc. To mention a few inconsistencies in the movie doesn’t make one hateful or self-righteous. The reader looking for a review should not be so sensitive to what one’s opinion is. I have read pros and cons too, and even commented myself on what I thought. As soon as I realized even one reader decided not to go see “Son of God” because of my review, I deleted my post. But honestly, I shouldn’t have had that much influence because it was an opinion. Jesus was clearly God, raised from the grave and coming again soon and that is reason enough to go see it. I said this in my review. Guess I took this a little too personal and wouldn’t consider myself a Pharisee.

    1. Dawn, to say I took this a little ‘too personal’ is kind of like saying, I take myself a little ‘too serious’… neither your comments or Nate’s are too critical or harsh. I get what he is saying. Too often people look at things for ‘what’s wrong with it’ instead of what’s RIGHT. we do this to people too. This type of view causes us unhappiness.

      my dad used to say, “the reason you’re offended is because you can be” — I have learned to grow thicker skin and give people the benefit of the doubt. I’ve also learned to stop reading everyone’s reviews, critiques and criticisms. I choose the people I know & trust (like Nate).

      I’m going to see this movie. And, I’m going to attend it looking for what’s good. I’ll use this as an opportunity to ask others about their relationship with Christ.

      Ok… that’s all from me. Thanks Nate (and Dawn)… I’m better today!

  2. Everyone can have an opinion Dawn for sure. I was referring to the very harsh and strong things said about the movie in the extreme from those that have made crazy charges and accusations and they never even have seen it yet.
