THe Movie Presents A Wrong Message
March 10, 2016
As much as I like the movie because I liked watching the characters be blessed with the desires of their heart, the overall message of the movie presents the wrong message about Christianity. In the movie we see things are not going good for the coach, his wife, and the football team; however, once the coach begins praying, reading his Bible, and discipling others, the good parts of his life start falling into place. The same is true for the football team. Once the football team starts glorifying God, they start winning games. In essence, the main message that comes across from this movie is: YOUR BLESSINGS ARE PEFORMANCE BASED. YOU WILL BE BLESSED WITH WINNING, A BABY, WINNING GAMES, A NEW TRUCK, ETC., ONCE YOU START PRAYING, READING YOUR BIBLE, AND DISCIPLING OTHERS. We do not see this in the Bible at all. The good thing about the movie is that it encourages people in leadership roles to grow in their faith and disciple others and hopefully this discipleship movement multiplies.
