Review of Do You Believe Movie

Do You Believe

Description:

A dozen different souls—all moving in different directions, all longing for something more. As their lives unexpectedly intersect, they each are about to discover there is power in the Cross of Christ … even if they don’t believe it. Yet.

When a local pastor is shaken to the core by the visible faith of an old street-corner preacher, he is reminded that true belief always requires action. His response ignites a faith-fueled journey that powerfully impacts everyone it touches in ways that only God could orchestrate.

This stirring new film from the creators of God’s Not Dead is in theaters now. More than a movie, it’s a question we all must answer in our lifetimes: DO YOU BELIEVE?

My Review:  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥

If you’re looking for a Christian movie that is subtle and makes you feel good, this is not the right movie for you. This is an in your face movie that challenges you to live out your Christian walk in radical ways. Malachi, a street preacher, stops Pastor Matthew and asks him, “Do you believe in the cross?” Pastor Matthew explains that he is a pastor, so of course he does. Malachi challenges him. “If you believe, what are you going to do about it?”

That challenge is what this movie is all about. Pastor Matthew preaches a sermon about it, and the decisions that take place lead 12 people together for one event that changes their lives forever.

Contemporary Christian films are getting better with great directing, good acting, and terrific story telling. So many great films have come out during the last couple of years. This is one of the best, and I highly recommend it. I have one warning though. You’ll need tissues.
