The Transcendence and Popularity of God Movies

Posted in Christian fantasy fiction with tags , , , , , , , on April 23, 2014 by eliseway

I have noticed for the past few months a great surge of God movies that have been doing pretty well and overriding your typical action or romantic movies that tend to be more successful.  Apparently, God is now a popular subject to make out of movies nowadays and I wonder why all of sudden people are flocking to see Russell Crowe build an Ark in Noah or a Portuguese Jesus get crucified in Son of God? If you look at the movies that are coming out these days, some are pretty lame in comparison to blockbuster hit movies that were so many to choose from. Now, when I check out my Flickster app on my phone, to see what movies are out, I have choice between a movie about a evil mirror killing folks or another teen movie about a heroine saving the world from oppression which isn’t alot of choices to go around. I think movies are being created now just to make money or feed off the popularity of a particular trend society is pursuing nowadays. The only movie now that’s a competitor to God movies is Captain America being the only blockbuster movie out at this time. It’s important to understand that these are the last days before Jesus Christ returns and having a relationship with God is crucial than never before. People are dying daily from natural and unnatural causes with some not knowing Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. People are wanting to know about God and who God is realizing their mortality and wanting to know what truly happens when you die.People are trying to live longer and find ways to extend their life span on the earth. The movie Transcendence delves into humans wanting to achieve immortality and to know much as God does in knowledge and power. Reviewers alike have been talking about how the movie is the biggest flop ever and that the themes in the movie didn’t quite relate to moviegoers who prefer to see a boy talking about his experiences in Heaven than ageless Johnny Depp speaking on the computer screen wanting more power to rule the world. At first, I wanting to see the movie but decided against it because it didn’t truly delve into the themes that would have made it even better. I think in comparison to the movies about God, people are wanting to know about spiritual transcendence and why do they exist in the world. No one I know really wants to die and become a Max Headroom of the future which is probably why the premise of Transcendence didn’t quite work. Yes, the dangers of technology was expressed but folks fearing people becoming computer programs was a tad far-fetched on the fear factor. The topic of God transcends anything that the world thinks they know or grasp about this divine being and can’t even grasp the depths of understanding of who God really is. We can watch movies about God and leave with a happy face from the theater but do we really know God for ourselves and is He involved in our personal lives or just someone we go to at church when we need some help. When you truly get to know God, God will transcend your mind, body, spirit, and soul to a place in Him that no man earth can write a book or movie about. The true transcendence in God comes from when God takes you where He is spiritually and you begin to feel His Glorious Presence operating more in your life to point you are able to do the supernatural in your own natural body. God will begin to work His Power and Authority through you once you have transcending to a place in Him that you begin to flow like His Son Jesus did when He walked the earth.
