‘Seven Deadly Words’ ~ CFDb Movie Review & Recommendation
With Egypt Valley Church out of funds and out of touch with the community, pastor Evan Bennett sets out to change things for the better. But there’s a problem… One family doesn’t like change, and is willing to do ANYTHING to stop him.
How far will they go to preserve the Status quo?
What a PLEASANT surprise. Roger and I REALLY enjoyed this film. This is inspired by actual events and that is surprising in itself, but then we realized a lot of churches are this way to some extent.
Here are some highlights from the film that blessed me:
- The Jordan vs. Dead Sea comparison – WOW – that was some speech. It made so much sense as to why churches become dead churches or rather professed Christians forget what their purpose is…to bear fruit!
- The pastor in this film was wonderful, loved the way he interacted with the people outside of the church. It was a great example of Christianity in action.
- Another favorite was the quote that comes from the Bible found in Psalm 127:1 – Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. (I’ve always thought of this verse about our physical homes but after watching this film, it really applied to the church perfectly!)
