Growing up in Greenville, Texas, Bart Millard suffers physical and emotional abuse at the hands of his father, Arthur. When Arthur becomes terminally ill, he finds redemption by embracing his faith and rediscovering his love for his son.
Years later, Bart’s troubled childhood and mended relationship with his dad inspires him to write the hit song “I Can Only Imagine” as singer of the Christian band MercyMe.
The new drama “A Question of Faith” presents a man who loses his trust in God, another who has not yet found it and a woman who never wavers. As doctrine, it delivers its message — when in doubt, lean in, not away — loud and clear. As a movie, it’s a religious pamphlet with actors.
Featuring a veteran cast, including Richard T. Jones, Kim Fields, C. Thomas Howell, Renée O’Connor and Jaci Velasquez, the story involves three families in a leafy Atlanta suburb linked by a pair of tragedies that test their collective faith and a pair of whopping contrivances that test ours.
David Newman (Jones) is the associate pastor at his father’s megachurch, busily awaiting his installation as senior pastor and struggling to keep promises to his wife (Fields) and sons. John Danielson (Howell) is a struggling contractor whose daughter has the voice of an angel and is on the verge of a gospel recording contract. Kate Hernandez (Velasquez) is a single mom and restaurant owner whose daughter Maria can’t stop texting, even while driving, but strives to be the first one in their family to attend college.
Fate intervenes, triggering a lot of soul-searching and prayer. The men are given challenges, the women are largely there to be saintly, supportive or utilitarian. Faith comes naturally, but complexity does not for Ty Manns’ script, which plays like a first draft, one written from a manual and riddled with two-dimensional characters and on-the-nose dialogue. Director Kevan Otto shoots it like an insurance commercial in which everyone has really nice houses and tragedy unfolds in slow, telegraphed close-ups.
The film does tackle some major social issues: texting while driving, organ donation and racial prejudice. But the first two are dispatched with the efficiency of a public service announcement, while the latter appears to be nothing that a half a million dollars, in the guise of manna from heaven, can’t fix.
Coincidence may be part of God’s plan, but it’s deadly in a serious drama. Manns and Otto may have been able to make it work if they’d handled the twists as a nod to classic deus ex machina, but the audience is so far ahead of the characters in this knowledge that it results in a long second-act slog and a cringe-inducing ending. God’s work isn’t easy, but a little dramaturgical rigor wouldn’t have hurt either.
THE NEVER-BEFORE-TOLD STORY OF LECRAE’S LOSS OF FAITH AFTER THE EXPERIENCES OF HIS PAST THREATENED TO RUIN HIS CAREER AND LIFE.
Two-time GRAMMY winning hip-hop artist and bestselling author Lecrae had inspired millions with his redemptive and gut-honest art. But when his personal life spun into chaos, he was forced to face the buried impact of the unhealed wounds–sexual abuse, physical trauma, addiction, and depression–that threatened to tear it all apart. Along the way, he realized the wounds we all carry have the potential to be unlikely guides to healing and freedom for ourselves, and others.
With vulnerable honesty and transformational yet simple steps you can apply today, Lecrae shares the personal practices he uses in his daily life for mental, emotional, and spiritual health. With powerful prose, he gives an unflinching look at the personal and public spaces that sadly hurt us so often–culture, politics, family, church, personal failure–and reminds us that learning to let go and forgive is the birthplace for the life of creativity and freedom God has for us.
I Am Restored is an inspiring charge to embrace the lasting healing and restoration available now, and that we all desperately long for, because no matter what you’ve experienced, God is near, He hears, and He’s not done with you yet.
Fast rising Gospel music minister Yadah has topped the June edition of the Official Nigerian Gospel Music Top 10 Chart, compiled by The International Association of Christian Media Practitioners [IACMP], with her wavemaking recent single titled “Onye Inaputara.”
With +18K views on the music video released on the 12th of June and an overwhelming number of votes from 54 Nigerian Gospel music blogs all across the nation, add to the nods from IACMP Top 10 Chart Panelists, the Abuja based Gospel artiste has whisked the spot off Dunsin Oyekan’s “At All Cost,” which dropped 6 steps to the Number 7 spot, for the month of June.
“Obinasom,” by Mercy Chinwo, Ada Ehi’s “Fix My Eyes On You” featuring Sinach and GUC’s “All That Matters,” all made their way back to the chart in order of mention due to recent demands and the vacuole created by lack of stronger contenders for the month. “‘All That Matters” by GUC pushed “On God” by Eben a step down from the number 4 spot which the single held last month.
The IACMP Official Nigerian Gospel Music Top 10 Chart uses popular votes from about 54 Gospel music blogs & online radio stations all over Nigeria, online music statistics such as charts from Gospel music blogs all over Nigeria. Also views, downloads, streams, external Gospel music charts and the decision of 2 panels (a 4-man and a 6-man panel) as criteria to determine the song that makes the monthly chart. The chart is the most credible Gospel music chart in Nigeria.
Let Us Assume that: 1) The cause of this pandemic is the 5-G technology.
2) The only answer to the pandemic is a vaccine to be administered with a chip.
3) The chip will be the fulfilment of the biblical prophecy of 666, the mark of the beast.
4) Anyone whether he is a believer or not, who takes the vaccine (with the chip) which is mark of the beast will be automatically lost forever!
5) Any one who refuses to take the vaccine will die from the virus or from hunger but he will be saved whether he is a believer or not!
Such a person will not even be allowed to buy or sell because he doesn’t have the mark of the beast but he will be saved forever! .
So, the only way out of the pandemic is to take the vaccine. The vaccine is the only way to survive now!
What is the Implication of all these?
If the above 5 points are correct it means that:
Salvation now is purely based on receiving or refusing the mark (the vaccine).
Even if one is a believer but takes the mark he will be lost. So, salvation now is purely based on what we do with the mark! If you take the vaccine you shall be lost. If you reject the vaccine you shall be saved!
Salvation by faith in Christ Jesus is no longer valid. Christ died in vain. Jesus is no longer the message.
The vaccine is now the message!
