Storyline

Young David, a.k.a. Shepherd Boy, has more faith in God than anyone else among his people. If no one in Saul's army will take on Goliath - the champion man-slayer among Leader Jaggar's Philistines - he will. David's soldier brothers, Eliab and Abinadab, have no encouragement for their underage sibling's foolhardy venture and do all they can to crush it; but, with no one else showing a gram of moxie to stand against the taunting giant, Saul finally permits the confrontation and prepares for the young lad's certain death - a determined boy who stubbornly approaches the giant without sword, spear or protective leather vest.

Before you criticize, please read this….
13 April 2015 | by pelicanflorida449See all my reviews

As a pastor who watched 'David and Goliath', please read this before you criticize the film….

WHAT WOULD Jesus SAY?

There's a person at my church who suffers from severe depression after having a major heart transplant. He saw 'David and Goliath' and said he left the theater feeling elated and he told me his faith in the Lord was greatly renewed.

What would you say to him? Sorry, but the giant's acting was horrible, the cinematography was terrible, and the script was atrocious?

Is this what Jesus would say? Serious food for thought. At an age when the Lord's words are thrown out in favor of American bashing, don't join in. The Lord will bless you if you don't. ("Blessed are the Peacemakers")

WE ARE NOT CALLED TO JUDGE

This is why we are called not to judge ("For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." Matthew 7:2)

Before you blast the film, ask yourself what would Jesus say about the film? Do you really see Jesus saying, "This is the worst film I've ever seen in my life. Costumes were horrible. Acting was atrocious."

By the same measure you judge others, you will be judged. God is serious about this. Do you really want someone to be judging YOUR work the same way? Your children? Your life? But this is a movie you say. No. It's someone's hard work that strives to honor God. We're suppose to be extra kind to Believers because the world is not.

WE ARE TO BE KIND AND COMPASSIONATE; FORGIVING

"Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you." (Ephesians 4:32)

American Christians refuse to abide by this simple premise. Instead, they take on the traits of pit-bull political commentators. They think the Lord Jesus Christ never really meant the words He spoke.

TRAITS OF A TRUE Christian

But the fruits of the spirits are love, kindness, compassion, gentleness, meekness, goodness, and forgiveness.

These are the traits of a true Christian. Anything less means…I'm sorry, but it might mean you're not truly saved. True born-again Believers are not filled with wrath, anger, and malice. They can at times, but not pre-meditatively.

I see so often American Christians have the traits of the devil. It says in the last days, "there will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God" 2 Timothy 3:1-5.

Before you criticize 'David and Goliath', ask yourself what are you trying to prove? Ask yourself whether it's worth $10 to rip into a fellow brother in Christ who went to Africa and risked his life to make a film that honors the God of the Bible. Right?

BUT! BUT!

But you don't understand, you say! This is the worst movie I've ever seen. The giant was horrible, the story was so slow, the….the…the – Hang on!

What movie are you comparing 'David and Goliath' to then? A Hollywood production? If so, can I say something? You're watching too many movies. This goes contrary to Scripture which says, "Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise." Philippians 4:8.

Too often the Christians in my church almost 90% of the time will spend their time in a movie theater or their home theater than helping the poor, feeding the hungry, visiting the prisons, or giving shelter to those in need. Seriously. And they really don't care. And the reason is….they're not really saved.

CARNAL CHRISTIANS

So often the Lord is talking to so-called Christians who are not really Christians. They'll watch a Hollywood movie before sharing the Gospel or visiting the sick in hospitals. Then, to make matters worse, they'll curse and growl at a Christian movie like "David and Goliath" and penalize the filmmakers with the wrath of Satan. Why?

Wouldn't the best alternative be to raise millions yourself and direct the great Christian movie yourself? Don't be surprised if they come to bash you next. There's no honor among thieves.

ARE YOU A FRIEND OF THE WORLD OR GOD?

Something to ponder…

"Don't you realize that friendship with the world makes you an enemy of God? I say it again: If you want to be a friend of the world, you make yourself an enemy of God." James 4:4

WOE TO THOSE WHO CALL GOOD EVIL….

I read one critic just bashing 'David and Goliath' left and right – almost calling it evil. Yet the Bible's clear about this:

"Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight." Isaiah 5:20-21

'David and Goliath' does not have to be eloquent – sorry.

For those Christian critics who bash 'David and Goliath' mercilessly, even the Apostle Paul has a word: "When I came to you, brothers, I did not come with eloquence or superior wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God." 1 Corinthians 2:1

That's all folks. May you hear the Lord speak to you. My prayer is you'll spend your days wisely. And knowing we are in the end times. The Lord can return tomorrow.
