Movie Review ~ An Interview With God By Astute Films, Big Indie Pictures & Giving Films

Category Religious/Christian/Inspirational Genre Drama/Mystery Release Date August 21, 2018. Rating 4 Stars Review A solemn, thought-provoking, but overall, hope-inspiring story that centers on the relationship between God and man and how this affects life on earth generally, as well as how it applies to individual living. An Interview With God presents a scenario where the all-knowing God seeks to help man dig deep into the questions of life that matter the most, but are rarely asked because of fear or negligence. Paul (Brendon Thwaites), the journalist, confronts God (David Straithairn) at first, with mockery questions, and subsequently, accusations, which God wisely points out the sources from which each unique issue arises. Interestingly, this story is not cliché at all, as it approaches the man-meets-God scenario with finesse and a unique twist that presents an altogether faith-inspiring message that is timeless. A well-rounded story!

A Love Letter to the One Who Despairs that They Found Jesus Late in Life

  Dear Beloved, I hope this letter meets you well and that you woke up today to see the beautiful smile of the sun, which reflects God’s love for you, His delight in you, and His desire and promise to fellowship intimately with you (Revelations 21:22-27). Did you know that each day is a gift to you BECAUSE He isn’t finished with you YET? If He were, then there’d be no Today. “Today” is a context for a special gift that God has given to each individual for their unique circumstance. Scripture says that Today is the day of salvation (Hebrews 3:7-15; 4:7). What this means is that, the moment you encounter the truth that sets you free, whether it’s the truth that frees you from a life of unbelief to one of new birth and faith, or one that sets you free from a lifestyle of bondage to one of new-found liberty, that moment of truth—that day—is the day to accept the salvation being offered. You should accept your gift of freedom today, and …

Article ~ The Danger Of Ingratitude & Not Honoring God (The Power & Protection of Thanksgiving & Glorifying God)

“The fool says in his heart, there is no God…” – Psalm 14:1 The Christian’s grateful heart does two things—glorifies God in His majesty and splendor, and thanks Him for His goodness, faithfulness and manifold provision, no matter the circumstance. A person new in faith may think the command to thank God in ALL circumstances to be extreme, or that God is insensitive to people’s pain and is likely narcissistic; but the truth is that beneath every law/command is the foundation of love and all the attributes that come with it; one of those attributes is, love protects (1 Corinthians 13:7). And this flows over, particularly, into the command to glorify and thank God. Am I saying that God will angrily refuse to protect you if you don’t honor Him in these specific ways? No. And that’s not the focus. The essential message here rests on the danger that comes from neglecting to do so. The act of thanksgiving and glorifying God from a genuinely grateful heart protects you from four great evils that most …
