Welcome to this weeks Christian movie reviews by Alexander. This week we have movies about love, faith and hope including The Way Home, Noah and The Last Days, Treasure State, My Son – My Savior and Crossflix Original The Living Bible Series…
The Way Home
Starring Dean Cain, Lori Beth Sikes and Pierce Gagnon
Based on the inspirational true story about how a rural community rallied around a distraught family to search for their missing two year old boy which changes all of their lives.
The frantic search for two year old Joe ensues early in the movie.
The police are called and soon fire and rescue start a huge search operation.
Tensions are high between Joe’s Mom and Dad, Crystal and Randy.
Crystal and Randy have a lot of concerned help from friends and Joe’s grandparents.
The Way Home is a story of community coming together in love, hope and faith.
Randy deals with guilt for not being a more attentive father.
The Way Home keeps you on the edge of your seat so watch this movie to see what happens with the search for little Joe.
Noah and The Last Days
In the time of Noah, people were going about their daily lives, not mindful of the impending destruction.
Like them, are we ignoring warnings of God’s coming judgment?
Noah and The Last Days is a compilation of interviews with people about believing the story of Noah and Christ and discussion on the last days we are in now.
The interviews show a great deal of ignorance about the Bible in many average people and some are hypocrites who claim to be Christian, but are living sinful lives supporting Hollywood with cuss words, sex scenes and using God’s name in vain.
The interviews also touch on the controversy between evolution and creation.
The interviewer explains very well with graphic material how it is quite possible that Noah saved all the species of animals.
The finale is convincing a bunch of admitted liars, thieves and blasphemers that Jesus is their only hope to avoid hell.
The interviewer from LivingWaters.com is a very gifted speaker and evangelizing these sinners by interviewing them is very inspiring and full of hope in the Lord.
Starring Judah Justine, Solomon Ray, Robert Bear and Colton Christensen
Two teens put their rivalry aside and join forces to stop bandits and survive the wilderness of Treasure State, in this fun action packed adventure.
Tres and Levi don’t get along and neither do their fathers.
Escaped convicts, the Baxter brothers, sabotaged a cargo plane with a billionaire’s stash on board.
The plane crashes in the Montana outback and the billionaire offers a reward of $100,000 for the missing cargo.
The race is on for Tres and Levi to claim the reward for their families that are in hard times, but the Baxter brothers have a trick up their sleeves to find the downed plane and get the cargo.
A very entertaining family movie with plenty of action and a quality story about forgiving friends and redeeming a relationship.
My Son, My Savior – Mary, Mother of Jesus
Starring Bruce Marchiano and Corrina Crade
A look at the Gospel message and Jesus’ ministry from the perspective of Mary, Jesus’ virgin mother.
The movie starts with Mary’s vision of the angel of the Lord, telling her she will conceive a child even though she is a virgin and that the child will be the Messiah.
Next, the birth of John the Baptist is covered.
Then Joseph deals with the news that Mary is with child and is visited by the angel of the Lord also in a dream telling Joseph that the child will be the Holy One and his name will be Jesus.
Jesus is born in the manger in Bethlehem and the wise men and the shepards come to visit.
Next, we see Jesus as a boy teaching in the temple, then to John the Baptist baptizing in the wilderness, then Jesus as a man comes.
Jesus turns water into wine at the wedding in Cana and Mary is there and we hear what she thinks in narration.
Jesus’ ministry continues with many miracles and healing of the lame, blind and sick and we hear Mary narrate how she observes Jesus.
We get a perspective from Mary that she begins to be concerned by the schemes of the Pharisees.
We get Mary’s perspective again as Jesus dies on the cross.
The great miracle of the resurrection is the final perspective from Mary in this descent rendition of the Gospel message.
The Living Bible Series – Genesis vol. 3 “Cain and Abel”
Cain and Abel were sons of Adam and Eve.
Cain, the firstborn, tilled the soil, and his brother Abel was a shepard.
The brothers made sacrifices to God, each of his own product, but God favored Abel’s sacrifice over Cain’s.
Cain was outraged and ended up murdering Abel.
God punished Cain to a life of wandering, but set a mark on him that no man would kill him.
Cain then wandered in the land of Nod (“Land of Wandering”).
God preferred Abel’s sacrifice because Abel gave his sacrifice with a pure heart and Cain did not.
Cain’s heart was the problem and we should be concerned over any problems with our own hearts.
It was more the manner in which Cain made his sacrifice, maybe there was stubbornness or laziness that made his sacrifice unacceptable to God.
Abel had a heart for glorifying God.
Sin is very entangling, one sin leads to the next, and like Cain our own sins can snowball even to murder.
When we repent of our sins, God forgives us, but this does not mean He takes away the consequences of our sin except the consequence of going to hell by the saving grace of the blood of Jesus.
Cain’s works were found unsatisfactory, but Abel in the shedding of blood of an animal sacrifice was acceptable, so it is for our salvation that it does not come from works, but from the shedding of the blood of Jesus.
