Are you sickened by the movies that come out to represent the Lord according to black people? I am, and when I saw the original movie trailer above for Preacher’s Kid(there is a final trailer on YouTube as well), I was even more sickened. It’s annoying enough we already laugh at a man dressed as a woman; who quietly tries to expose Christianity to the world. He makes believe God is a joke by pointing guns at folks to making black Christian men look like chumps and Christian normality to be a bunch of singing and dancing but no real obedience to the bible. We do not need another movie to explain to America what Christianity looks like for the Afro-American Christian. The Scripture alone is enough to explain what biblical Christianity looks like. It says:

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. (John 3:17-21)

So is this new movie, Preachers kid going to finally explain to us who the Lord Jesus Christ is? From the clip alone, we are supposed to derive that God waits for us to come back because of the foolish decisions we make. This play is geared to make you laugh, shed a few tears, send a tingle up your spine, and finally expose the truth behind real Christianity from the black side of church! HOGWASH!!!!!

Preacher’s Kid maybe attempting to explain a watered down interpretation of Luke 15. In fact, watching this movie, some people may say they have found a new relationship with God now because of this movie. HOGWASH!!! Why so harsh Karsten? The scriptures are enough to teach us and bring us to repentance (2 Timothy 3:16-17), not some movie that gives a worldly representation of who Jesus Christ is. I know, I have not seen it and trust me I desire not to see it.

To understand the context of Luke 15, where Jesus Christ gives the Pharisees and scribes three parables to attest to them why the tax collectors and sinners drew near to Jesus Christ, look at verse 10.

Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth. (Luke 15:10)

Repentance is the key to understanding the context of Luke 15. REPENT in the Greek transliteration – metanoeō - to change one's mind for better, heartily to amend with abhorrence of one's past sins. F.F Bruce says: "Repentance (metanoia, 'change of mind') involves a turning with contrition from sin to God; the repentant sinner is in the proper condition to accept the divine forgiveness." (F. F. Bruce. The Acts of the Apostles [Greek Text Commentary], London: Tyndale, 1952, p. 97.)

Will you see this in Preacher’s Kid? NO. Why? Because the real message is to place the label of “okay” on the sinful or worldly lifestyles the so-called professing Christian have. Basically the movie may tell you, it is okay to be in sin, you make the decision to come back to God when you’re ready, or when you see things didn’t work out for you.

Now some of you may go and see this movie to come up with something to refute what I am saying here, but then you missed the point. You don’t have to go to a single movie to figure out what the Lord desires, or who the Lord Jesus Christ truly is. OPEN YOUR BIBLE, and let the Word of God lead you to true repentance. OPEN YOUR BIBLE and by the direction of the Holy Spirit, apply His Word to your life. STOP trusting in these stupid movies to tell you how to live the Christian life. STOP trusting these so-called Christian plays to make you laugh and feel good about the sin your in. So gently I say to you because I love you:

I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. (Luke 13:5)

Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; (Acts 3:19)

And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: (Acts 17:30)
