Should Christians Support The Movie "The Case For Christ"? Y'all Do Know That The Lead Actresses Is A Known Scentology Advocate and Practices It?


Reader, there's yet another Christian movie "The Case for Christ" coming out on April 7th. The movie is about a seasoned journalist chasing down the biggest story in history. Is there credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God? Retracing his own spiritual journey from atheism to faith, Lee Strobel, former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune, cross-examines a dozen experts with doctorates who are specialists in the areas of old manuscripts, textual criticism, and biblical studies.


Strobel challenges them with questions like; How reliable is the New Testament? Does evidence for Jesus exist outside the Bible? Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual event? Strobel’s tough, point-blank questions make this bestselling video like a captivating, fast-paced novel. But it is not fiction. It is a riveting quest for the truth about history s most compelling figure.

My question are y'all planning going to see it? What are your thoughts? The plot looks good...I was thinking about it, but then I see that one of the actresses is a known Scientology advocate and practices it. I know it's a movie, but still I believe we should be mindful of the type of people being casted in Christian movies.

Some say this is a Real Christian movie that we Christians should support. DON'T support Satan movies that portray Jesus as a homosexual OR any other stupid thing Satan does.

Thoughts??

  1. Strobel's testimony is powerful. However, if this lead actress IS a Scientologist, this negates the positive impact of the film. Christian filmmakers cannot cast everybody under the sun for movies just because they profess Christianity. You have to live the faith and make the hard decisions about certain film roles these individuals take on. We live in a culture of "Celebrity Christianity, " where celebrities can live anyway they want and still have the blessing of the church. I am sure Strobel would be against a Scientologist being the lead female character. Read "The Kingdom of the Cults" and understand the dangers of Hubbard's religion.

    1. In response to your thoughts about Strobel. I attended an Apologetics conference earlier this year in Dallad and Stobel shared a clip of the movie. So perhaps he didn't know the actress background or it did not matter.

  2. We should support all efforts to redeem the lost. Plus Apologetics is an area too many African Americans fail to explore. When confronted by skeptics, we dont exactly light up the scoreboard with proof. Hence, why there is an increasingly growing number of African American athiests. The actor's background shouldn't prevent us from supporting an evangelistic effort. IMO

    1. It is because we as African-Americans don't understand the Christian faith. Furthermore, some of us are Biblically illiterate, so it would be difficult to articulate the truth of Christianity to athiests and agnostics. Strobel sought the truth and God saved his soul. He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him. So, the movie will do some good. But, people have to seek the truth to be set free.

    2. Yes people have to seek the truth, but many are taught that church attendance is all they need. And too often the truth of church overshadows the truth of the gospel.

    3. I agree with you. I love to understand apologetics better so I can articulate my faith to my peers. In the meantime, I will read his book to gain a foundation to understand the movie.

  3. I don't care about religious believes of any actors or actresses. All I really care about is whether it is a good movie.

  4. The fact that she is the LEAD actress and is a KNOWN Scientogist is very disappointing to me as a Christian.

    I'm sure the reverse is true about Scientologist and their feelings about her being in this movie...

    OR they might not care bc their most famous members are actors and they might see this all as just a "job", that she was just "acting"?

    If that is the case should we Christians feel the same way... that it's just a role that she was just an actor playing a part?

    Honestly, it just doesn't look or feel right to me. I wouldn't be comfortable FEATURING a Sceintologist in my film in a movie about Christianity and even more than that Apologetics which is a defense for the Truth. How can they make the audience think they are serious about the faith and defending Christ when one of their main characters fights for Satan smh. Just doesn't add up.

    Like I said, VERY unfortunate...

    But Ima see the movie anyway lol :P

    I love Stroble and his work it's just shocking he allowed this.

  5. Miss Ann,

    Jesus Christ toots his own horn if I may say. He doesn't need mortal man to make a case for him.

    "I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death." Revelation 1:18

    1. Just watched the clip. Towards the end, there's reference to the Shroud of Turin. Looks like they are making a case for idol worship instead! SMH!!!

      Beware!
