The other night we finally rented the movie Fireproof. I admit I was skeptical about watching it. Usually movies that are made through Christian organizations are cheesy, poor acting, or the story line is not that great. I had head reviews about this movie and wanted to see it, so we did.
I admit, I was surprised. It was a good movie. I will confess that some parts were cheesy, and some acting could have been better, there could have been more to the story- but it was a wholesome movie. I would recommend it to others to watch. You can read what others have said here, here, and here.
I do wish that the Gospel was more of a focus in the movie- in fact it should have been the focus. They depended a lot on love- but without the Gospel it is impossible to love that selfless love. We went to a wedding the other day and I was confronted with this problem there as well. The people getting married were believers, but there was no mention of the Gospel at their wedding. We are in such a "me" driven culture/sinful nature. We cannot find the strength or even the desire to love apart from Jesus through the Gospel.
