Son of God
The movie Son of God arrives in theater’s today across the United States. It is the latest film produced by Mark Burnett (Survivor, Shark Tank, The Bible) and his wife Roma Downey (Touched by an Angel, The Bible). This film was produced at the same time the series The Bible was shot so you will recognize the actors, scenes, etc. from this series. What you won’t see is the controversial depiction of satan that appeared.

“We’re committed to stories that add light,” she said. “We are people of faith. This is important to us. It’s not just a job. But for our movie, “Son of God,” I wanted all of the focus to be on Jesus. I want his name to be on the lips of everyone who sees this movie, so we cast Satan out. It gives me great pleasure to tell you that the devil is on the cutting room floor. This is now a movie about Jesus, the Son of God, and the devil gets no more screen time, no more distractions.” – Roma Downey
There have been many over the years, myself included that have pointed to how our society ignores the Christian audience and how it has negatively impacted our society. We have seen a few movies start to present a positive impression on our faith and now comes the greatest story of them all…Jesus. Sure there will be people that will not like every single take of the movie, and even try to nit pick the specific theology, but how great is it that Jesus is the subject of a conversation in our mainstream society?
I want to personally encourage all who read this to take the time and go support this movie. We have an opportunity to help the story of Jesus reach the masses. Yes, its just a movie, but the subject matter is what is the most important. If you can get this message to the masses, you will be amazed at the impact that God can make. We see this every day in the work we do at Medical Ministry International and it is such a boost to our efforts to have the story of our model and guide be on display for all to see.
Let the whole world hear!
