This movie was refreshing after watching a few other movies back to back with it that were purely secular in nature. After hearing the F bomb repeatedly and watching a bunch of dysfunctional families and sexual situations masquerading as humor, it was nice to watch a movie that had some people in it that were sincerely trying to live better lives. The Christian message in it is prevalent and I'm sure the critics will find fault with it based on that but even someone who doesn't hold Christian beliefs could watch this and enjoy seeing people genuinely trying to help others. It was also refreshing to see people who were evaluating their lives and trying to break out of the ruts they were in - from mourning a lost child indefinitely, living with the sadness of not being able to have a child, being homeless and responsible for a child, living with cancer and remorse, and having an identity in a gang. While its not going to win any academy awards, it was a very satisfying movie to watch and had a good ending weaving. the various characters together in a climatic moment.

A must see movie. A must do Bible Study that takes the movie to the next level.

This movie poses a compelling question to each and every one of us. Do you believe? And if you believe, then what are you gonna do about it? Faith requires action. Faith without action is dead. In the film, a dozen different souls-all moving in different directions, each discovered there is power in the Cross of Christ... The viewer is shown different ways to be used by God to witness to the unsaved in order to get them saved. The fact that God is actively at work in the lives of the people around us became a focal point that opens your mind to ways God can use us in His plan to reach others. We can sometimes walk around with blinders on — a preconception that there’s only a black and white (in your face) single approach to reach others for Christ. This approach works, but it’s not the only one that can be used. No single approach can meet everyone's needs. This movie debunks this limiting preconception. I really think every believer can relate to this movie. Do we take credit where God should have the glory? Are your eyes open or shut? Or are you walking around with blinders on? Do look for ways He can use you in His plan to reach others in your every day life?

I serve in the mission field and have witnessed first-hand the power in the Cross of Christ in ordinary people's lives. This movie depicts it accurately and in so many ways challenges us.

With that being said, I strongly recommend purchasing the Do You Believe Bible Study Kit available at outreach.com. It comes with two wooden crosses and encourages you to look for someone in your sphere of influence who is in need of a touch from God...if you believe, you should do something about it — regardless of your past, regardless of your current faith walk, regardless of those around you...faith demands action. Action that can only come from you...

The Bible study really takes this movie to the next level and does it justice. It talks about how God has a plan and that every one of us is a part of God’s Plan...that God wants us to recognize our place in His plan. He invites us to be used. God is actively at work in the lives of the people around us and He will use all that we have, all that we are, and all that we have been through...that faith is more than belief, it requires action. Having confidence in God’s plan when we cannot possibly see the outcome is the point at which we understand true faith...that true faith goes beyond knowledge. True faith is tested by deeds...Jesus asks us to take up our own cross and daily follow Him. Our faith requires action. Actions always speak louder than words. Actions communicate loudly and in a more lasting way what our hearts and minds don’t always reveal...if we believe God has a plan for the world, then we must have faith to participate in His plan...every day we have opportunities to share Jesus’ salvation with people. With every opportunity comes sacrifice...the truth is, the Bible doesn’t command us to find joy in the trial. It commands us to find joy in what the trial will eventually produce...it presses the point that it doesn't matter if you thought it was an amazing movie...what will matters is that faith moved beyond just a feeling for you...what matters is doing something… and talks about so much more…thought-provoking discussion questions as well.

Wow, no words to describe....

Wow, this is not just the best faith-based movie I've seen; it is the best movie I've seen, ever, better than any secular movie as well. Finally, a Christian movie that captures what it means to be Christian, to be truly forgetful of self and concerned only with the needs of those around us. This is a movie for the ages, to show one's children, and their children, through many generations, to teach them that our faith is more than just words, just saying Jesus loves you, but backed by action and heart---even total immolation of self for others. Extraordinary movie.

it's About Time!

This is a movie that very potentially has a lot to do with your soul and where it's going, but done in a way that will make you laugh and cry and relate to this modern film. So that said, Christians usually love this movie, and everyone else who is in a quest for truth should find it at the least, interesting. Besides, we're all trying to be open-minded right? Wouldn't want to miss out on anything? It was very dramatic and had 12 stories of different people that eventually overlap in the movie at the end. The only thing is that it was slightly confusing, and as usual for a lot of Christian movies, there was a lot of tearjerker action going on. Otherwise it was really great to see Lee majors again and Cybil Shepard and a lot of other good actors young and old, and I just think overall it was very entertaining, and soulful movie. It's about time that we had more movies like this movies that are sincerely concerned for everyone's souls, and it something that everyone must consider at least once in the life. The question: Will you accept, live, and have a relationship with the Maker of You, Everyone on earth, and the universe itself?

Deus ex machina -- whether one likes that sort of thing or not
Verified purchase
I almost gave this five stars because I really enjoyed it. This plot would probably be too far-fetched for many, though, so I rated it down one notch. I, however, really enjoyed the artistry of the writer to bring all the subplots together into one incredible moment of crisis and resolution.

As is probably obvious from the cover picture, this is a Christian movie. As a Christian, I found it very entertaining and motivational. The inciting incident occurs when a street preacher rolls a life-sized cross down the street and asks a man in a car (the minister at the center of the film), "Do you believe in the cross of Jesus?" At first nearly dismissing the question because it's so obvious that a Christian minister would believe this, he smirkingly responds in the affirmative. He's caught off-guard, however, by the follow-up question, "Then what are you going to do about it?" The minister, now haunted by the question, begins to really devote his life to the service of others, and he challenges his congregation to do the same.

If I'm not mistaken, there are twelve separate characters in the film, each struggling with his own crisis, many at first completely unrelated. By the end, however, we see that all the characters' lives connect in some way -- a way that I find beautiful and meaningful. For some, these connections may seem contrived, and the miracles that happen might be difficult for some to believe, though I have personally heard of people who have experienced similar miracles. I guess how one receives this movie depends upon who he is and where he is in his life.

Others say that this movie is unbelievable and not in a good way.
What's not believable in this story?
1. Young man gets in with the wrong 'gang'.
2. Pastor Matthew and his wife can't conceive.
3. Pregnant teen is out on the streets because she doesn't want to abort her baby when others tried to force her.
4. A single mom, who lost her husband, can't make ends meet so she and her daughter are forced to sleep in shelters or their car and eat at soup kitchens.
5. An older couple grieving over the loss of their child.
6. A Marine suffering from PTSD.
7. A very depressed young woman who contemplates suicide.
8. An EMT that gets persecuted for his faith.
9. A doctor with a God complex that thinks he deserves all the credit.
10. An older man that has a bad past but has turned to help others at the expense of his own health.
Fact is, all these things happen. Unfortunately, they happen every day. What do you plan to do to make a difference?

This movie follows the lives of 12 individuals who are from different walks of life that find the same path.
I love the way their lives eventually intertwine with another. It's like a domino effect. One good deed deserves another. And another.
I am reminded of the Book of Job when the EMT is being sued for sharing his faith with a dying man. His wife, Elena, wants him to give in, apologize so he can keep his job. It was wonderful to see that he refused to back away from his faith because it may offend some.

This is a very heartwarming story. You get a glimpse into the lives of these people and may even relate to one or more of them.
If this doesn't get to you on some level, you may need to check to see if your heart is still beating.

I highly recommend this movie to Christians, non believers and those still straddling the fence.

5+ stars!!

Love this movie

Despite the many older actors in this movie, all of which I loved back in the day, they and the new young actors did a great job. I had my doubts about Ted but he was totally believable as the Pastor, great acting all around, especially the little girl and her mom. Of course I found the ex-footballer to be excellent, I've seen him before in other things, he always does a great job.
