We all know how bad Christians are at making movies; "Left Behind" is a testament to that.
Well, I actually found one that isn't about the end times:
That's right! "Snake" Plissken is back, and this time he won't just fight for his life! He'll fight for his soul! Don't miss the heart pounding, high octane evangelistic action in "Escape...FROM HELL!"
Well, that's what the back should say, anyway. In case you can't read it, here's what it actually says:
"Dr. Eric Robinson wants to believe and experience that infinite love and warmth that near death testimonies claim is on the other side of life. His colleague, Dr. Marissa Holloway, is on a crusade to alleviate the fear of death and suffering by proving to the world that heaven awaits everyone. In a moment of desperation, Dr. Robinson faces death and discovers the reality of hell -a place the Bible vividly portrays- a hell from which we must all escape."
Here's an excerpt from the site I found it on:
"Escape from Hell is an evangelistic movie that challenges viewers to confront their inevitable death and judgment. This action packed drama with spectacular special effects, gives us glimpses of what hell and heaven might be like in the here after. It is a wonderful discussion starter to share Christ with unsaved family and friends."
As an exegetical, fairly fundamental Christian, I believe in Hell. Jesus talked about it, but it wasn't the core of His ministry. When Jesus talked about Hell it was usually in connection to something else, such as cutting ourselves off from temptation, or the snares of wealth.
I've walked this road before. I made my first profession of faith because I was scared of Hell, but it wasn't real salvation. It was what some would call "fire insurance", and it faded quickly. That kind of profession does not last. It's the work of the Spirit and conviction of our sin that brings us to true faith in Christ, not terror.
Can I get an Amen?!
