This Is Love:

Love That Forgives Our Sin

Pastor Rick

 

 

Guest Worship Leader:

Dan Jameson

 

WHAT IS LOVE?

 

The answer may seem obvious - that God demonstrated his love for us; that we when we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).  What might not be as obvious is how this love has power today to transform every aspect of our lives.

 

This season you are invited to join us for a special three-week series starting Easter weekend.  Bring a friend or neighbor, and we'll discover together that the resurrection still changes everything. #thisislove  Saturday's at 6:00 p.m.

Movie Review- Unplanned

Rated R

 

Did you see the Mel Gibson movie, The Passion of the Christ?

I remember being incredibly upset at the way Jesus was abused yet, it was one of the best movies I had ever seen.

 

In many ways, Unplanned struck me in a similar way.  The subject matter is about a young mother and wife who first begins as a volunteer and then works her way up to Executive Director of a Planned Parenthood abortion facility.  At first the character believes that abortion is only one of the services they provide.  It becomes very apparent that abortion is THE business enterprise and the source of all their profits.  Nothing else matters to Planned Parenthood.

 

The movie follows the character’s ascendency in the Planned Parenthood organization.  One major promotion was precisely because she was able to view the POC (products of conception) without losing her composure.  Thankfully they did not actually show the contents of these containers but you knew from the very clear dialog exactly what was in these containers.

 

The movie goes to great lengths to follow the Planned Parenthood counselors as they repeatedly lie to the troubled women who just want their problem to “go away”.  The lies are simply incredulous but to a young girl without much hope, the clinic generally signs the girls up for “a procedure”.  There are troubling scenes of an ultrasound in which the baby is clearly trying to escape the abortionists instrument. Children are vacuumed out of the uterus and excessive bleeding from a miscarriage and a botched abortion will wrench you deeply inside.  THIS MOVIE WILL TROUBLE YOU!

 

I spent much of the movie crying my eyes out.  I could not stop thinking that abortion is America’s twenty-first century holocaust.  So, I was very uncomfortable during the movie.  However, this abomination is all around us.  In the Old testament, the Canaanites use to sacrifice their babies to the demon god Molech.  It struck me that this is exactly what is going on today…..HERE.

 

At first there are a few Christians in the story who were jerks shouting out at the girls.  However, after several minutes, a group of Christians enter the scene with a genuine love and compassion.  Our character eventually has an epiphany of the humanity of the babies and begins to work tirelessly with the believers in Jesus to proclaim the truth.  I believe most people left the theater uplifted.  I certainly was.

 

There are conflicts which I do not want to spoil for you.  However, as upsetting as the subject matter is, it was the best Christian movie I have seen since Mel Gibson’s Passion.  It was one of the most troubling movies I have ever seen and one of the best movies I have ever seen at the same time.  It’s been two days and I am still tearing up.

At one point in my Christian life I was very involved in the Pro-Life movement.  I think I need to get back in the fight.

 

My advice?  See this movie if you dare.  However, know in advance that you will be both completely wrecked and challenged in a way that few movies can do.  A +     Pastor Ken
