I am a Holy Spirit filled believer in Jesus. I am still inspired by Romans 15:13: MAY THE GOD OF HOPE FILL YOU WITH ALL JOY AND PEACE AS YOU TRUST IN HIM, SO THAT YOU MAY OVERFLOW WITH HOPE BY THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. . God has a plan and He will be faithful to carry it out. Hallelujah !!!

Movies about Jesus

A friend on Facebook asked me this question:

" What is your opinion on these movies, Dr. Horton ! I have read so
 many different opinions on them !!!! Everything from saying almost
 they are heresy, to devil inspired, to thinking they are fine !!
Please give us your wisdom on these !!! Thank you ,We can always
 learn from you !!!!!!!"

The purpose of these movies is not to teach Theology and that
 is a good thing!

 Its purpose is to get the attention to Jesus and his disciples.
 
Since so many people don't read anymore if the truths of the Bible can be pictured in a movie it 
will at least give them some understanding of God's plan of salvation.

If you take a non-Christian friend you will find the movie may touch their emotions and make them willing to listen a little more to what you share with them about Jesus.

It should also help your Christian friends to draw closer to Jesus and His Word by making it new
and fresh and alive to them.

I plan to go and see these movies if I can and I will let you know what I think.

Remember Jesus said we are to make disciples or learners and that means you must get them interested in studying the Bible.

The movie can be a first step to that.

  2. Wow, Dr. Horton! Those are GREAT words! Thanks! I always appreciate your words and also appreciate seeing you. When I first met you in person, about 20 years ago, you inspired me. You continue to inspire me. You can take the most complicated theological or historical questions and give easy to understand explanations! Thank you, Dr. Horton! :-)
