We had the opportunity to review Kirk Cameron’s Unstoppable. If you haven’t heard about this movie...it was made to answer the question “why does a good God allow bad things to happen [to good people]?” I think we have all either wondered this question ourselves or had people ask us this question. If you haven’t…you will. This is a good resource for helping to “put it all together”…from the beginning of the Bible to…well…the middle. (The end will be some future day from now.)
Kirk Cameron does a pretty good job of walking through Scripture…introducing where we began – how the Lord created us, where suffering began (Adam & Eve and Cain & Abel). [Some of this part of the movie is not appropriate for younger children, but it only lasts for a few minutes – all the other parts of the movie are okay for all eyes.] And on in to the different kingdoms that reigned. He points out that through it all there is a purpose that can be seen. It concludes with the fact that if God has taken every failure of man and has used it to glorify Himself and bring good for man. This then confirms that He certainly can use the daily things of an individual for good as well, even if we don’t understand it.
