May I ask if any of you have watched the Movie " The Encounter" 2010 before? I have just finished watching it & I LOVED it!
It was so authentic and heart-touching for me! I most certainly wished I had found it way back when I first started searching for answers, & trying to figure out who Jesus was for me!
I wonder what do you think of presenting the Gospel message &the person of Jesus Christ, by recommending such a movie ?
We’re always trying to talk about & present Jesus as a personal God & saviour, yet, oftentimes it’s so hard for people to really see Him as such; especially through the lens of past disappointments, failures and many unanswered questions. I know that was the case for me. Back then, I remember how the pain I experienced growing up was blinding, and all the cynicism that colored my view of the God of the Bible kept me from seeing Jesus for who He really is!
So, maybe including this movie or similar ones would aid address this distorted conception of Jesus, or at least, would help someone start thinking about God, in a personal way, approximating the idea of a God who came in flesh, walked this Earth, shared in our experience & not just some distant, disengaged, uncaring deity. That, I think, can be somehow eye-opening!
Also, I’d really like if you would recommend any other similar movies, TV series, or shows!
