Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

We Can Trust God Even When We Don't Understand EVERYTHING About Him

I loved that a movie showed that (1) we can know and believe the Bible is true even if we don't understand every single thing about an omniscient God. (2) God still does miracles today (I prayed with TWO blind people that had their sight completely restored, and saw one person miraculously come back to life amongst other miracles. I don't understand it, and I have prayed for people that didn't have a miracle. But all the things I DO understand and know about God shows me that I can trust Him even when my human mind doesn't understand. I personally don't WANT to serve a God that is limited by my own understanding.) (3) I don't care if the acting isn't as professional as the big stars any more, In fact, I'd rather support moral people who do a good but less than stellar job and are undercut by budgets than to support Hollywood, their confused and disgusting actors and actresses who lead people to hell, and are influenced only by money, resulting in their lives being in shambles. (4) This reminds us that God is bigger in any circumstances.

The story is made to allow each of us who has faith to examine it and explore it within ourselves. Beautiful and touching movie.
