Has anyone seen this movie? My wife and I got to see only the last half of it and we loved it. My SIL recorded it for us the next day when it came on again. She is going to send it to us so we can see the whole thing.

I haven't got to see it yet, but I have been told it is VERY good and even presents the plan of salvation. There is another movie by the same producer (it is produced by a church out of Georgia - I think - saw a piece of a documentary on it or somethin) called "Fireproof" and it is about protecting and preserving your marriage. The previews looked very good and my wife and I want to see it as well. We just haven't made time for either yet.

God Bless,

Flywheel is another movie made by them. I liked Facing the Giants and Flywheel. They were kind of weak on the gospel more of a feel good,God will help us through things type movies. I liked them but Fireproof seems that it has a major gospel message. I haven't seen it yet but will soon.

Very good movie.

I've only watched it once but it seemed to me as if it started out a bit slow and didn't seem to have any Christian aspect to it at all. That all changed fairly quickly though and myself and my youngest son really liked the movie. I bought him that movie for his birthday.

Hehehe I am watching it now my hubby put it in our new 5 disk changer while I was at the hospital getting my D and C so I can watch movies tonight and perhaps tommrow. This moving moves me because we are having diffculites of inferility and also the song at the end Voice of Truth tears me up inside.

I found this movie at my grocery store for only $10. I bought it, and one night when Elizabeth isn't working we are going to sit down and watch the whole thing. Can't wait.

I didn't like it too much. It was good, but since it involved football, I couldn't help but notice the impossibilities during some of the games. I am a huge sports guy and a bit of a perfectionist so it bugged me a little. I guess it's got a good story, but it wasn't my cup of tea.

I too am a sports guy, and the "impossibilities" you mention are only impossible to you because your faith doesn't allow God to do them. BTW, God is the only REAL perfectionist - so don't try to be Him...your incapable.

Someone said the gospel was weak in this movie. While they didn't spend a lot of time laying out every detail, they made it very clear that salvation was only by faith and through Christ. This is one of the best movies every made in my opinion.

I also watched flywheel and thought it also was a good movie and delivered a good message. What many ignore about this movie and just skip to the "be good, do good" message is the bigger more evident lesson of reaping and sowing.

God Bless,

:amen:

After watching the movie again I noticed the Gospel message as well as how Christians ought to be living, was very well put forth. This is my favorite Christian movie.

I just don't get a thrill out of seeing a 100 pound kid kicking a 60 yard field goal.

I don't really care, though, why you think that I didn't like it. Next time I'll let you make up the reason for me.


It's called a difference in taste.

It could also be called rude, disrespectful, and putting God into a box for what He is capable of. You seem to fail to see the fact that point to it wasn't that the "110 pound kid" kicked the field goal, but that God helped him. That's no more miraculous than the way Pittsburg won the superbowl tonight. Try giving the credit to God instead of the "kid" and it might just make a little sense to you. But I understand if the God you serve isn't capable of miracles...don't worry, the one I serve is!!!

I did like the fact the movie made it very clear that God interceeded and made the field goal possible. Also, I liked that when they showed the ball going between the uprights it crossed the goal low just as it would if kicked from a long distance rather than up high.

The main point being that the kicker was obviously incapable of making the kick on his own and that God obviously made it possible.

I thought the movie did a very good job of presenting that.

While I'm at it; I also really liked the way the Eagles lost their first playoff game but determined to praise God anyway. The next day it was obvious the coach and players were down about what happened, which seemed to add great realism.

Wow...... :roll

I don't understand why you're so upset that I didn't like the movie.

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
