This movie started out telling the story of a family who had a son die of cancer at age 15. I was crying listening to their story. It was truly painful. The question of pain and suffering is one that Christians get most often and it is a tough question to answer. In this movie Kirk goes back to the beginning and tells a story we may have heard before but in a very unique way.
“[The Lord] has used the most tragic and terrible tragedies to accomplish the greatest good for you and me,” Cameron said. “He’s been doing it since the very beginning.” (source)
One of the best things that I took away from this movie is hope amidst great personal suffering and sadness. Hope that only comes from God. I was just talking last night to my eight year old son and he comes to me with tears in his eyes and he asks me about heaven. I often wonder when the children of this world realize they were born to die. It is a truth that we all have to come to grips. But because I have my faith in God I have a good answer to their questions. No, I cannot prove that God exists with scientific methods. You also cannot prove that God does not exist with scientific methods - therein lies faith.
I hope you have a chance to watch this video. There are times that it was a little slow during certain scenes but it was done to really tell The Story.
I have a DVD to give-a-way! If you would like to enter just leave your e-mail address. The give-a-way ends on 2/9/14 at 9pm EST.
Inspired by the death of Cameron’s close friend who succumbed to cancer at the age of 15, Kirk Cameron takes viewers on an inspiring and hope-filled visual journey to better understand the biggest doubt-raising question in faith: “Where is God in the midst of tragedy and suffering?”
Going back to the beginning—literally—Kirk investigates the origins of good and evil and how they impact our lives … and our eternities. UNSTOPPABLE will prompt audiences to consider the role that pain and suffering has in our lives, as they affirm their personal views on faith, and encourage conversation starters about God, suffering, and hope.
