Review of The Way Home (DVD)

Last week I received a movie called The Way Home (DVD) with Dean Cain. It is about a family planning on going on vacation until their son goes missing. The father Dean Cain takes his eyes off his son for a minute and then the son disappears. The whole movie is about finding his son and using the faith of God to help. I liked some aspects of this movie. I liked that the use of prayer helped this family cope with the struggles of their missing son until the end when he was found. When you pray to God and ask for something in his will, he will answer. God is always there to talk to, you will never get a busy signal, just ask for God and he is there to help. And many scriptures from the bible can show you that as well.

The thing I did not like about this movie is how when he prayed to God, he said God please do not take my child, show me a sign if he is still alive. That makes me so angry, God does not take children from their parents. Just like God does not cause natural disasters either. Sometimes unforeseen occurences happen, it doesn't mean that God causes things to happen at all. Sometimes you just have no control over what happens in life. But God is a loving and caring God, and does not like to see us suffer. And God does not cause suffering either which you can read about in the scripture James 1:13 which reads when under trial, let no one say I am being tried by God. For the evil things God cannot be tried nor does he himself try anyone. Another good scripture is Matthew 11:28,29 which reads, come to me all you who are toiling and loaded down, and I will refresh you. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am lowly in heart and you will find refreshment for you souls.

So basically the whole movie was just ok. It got my attention the whole time and I was rejoiced when the son was found along with the family but I did not like the misconception being brought about, about God. People need to know the truth about God and what kind of God he is. So hopefully this review will do that. So I would not recommend this movie to anyone just for how they had some misconceptions in the movie and that offended me.
