Let There Be Light

1 h 40 min2017X-RayPG-13
World-famous atheist Dr. Sol Harkens (Kevin Sorbo) delights in debating Christians. Isolated from his wife Katy (Sam Sorbo), his self-destruction culminates in a car crash that leaves him clinically dead for 4 minutes. The message from that experience challenges his convictions. Reluctantly leaning on his family's forgiveness, Sol struggles to find meaning in the words "Let There Be Light."

Thank you...great movie with a very powerful life changing message!

Wow...I really needed to watch this. Been going through a really hard time right now and many difficult things have been happening in my life. My attitude towards God and my faith in Him has not been as strong lately as it has been in other times in my life. This movie was totally refreshing and brought me closer to my faith and the reason for even being here on this earth has returned. I have ALWAYS loved Kevin Sorbo as a die hard Hercules fan but when he became a believer and started to do faith based movies..... that is where my love and respect for him grew. He is such an amazing compassionate actor who puts his heart into every role that he plays. He is a man of true integrity, never afraid to stand behind what he believes in. He is a class act. As far as his wife Sam, I have read about her but never had the privilege of seeing her in a movie before. It was really wonderful to see the woman behind the great man Kevin Sorbo and she did an amazing job. Also... their boys did an amazing job as well. What an awesome family!!! My hat is off to all the beautiful people who made this movie for the whole world to see. Let there be light.... Thank you!

Awesome movie. The Sorbo family are all such great actors that made you feel every moment. It is amazing how a $3M budget movie can send such a powerful message in a world where every movie today tries to demonstrate the highest body counts and ways to die. This was a wonderful commentary on life.

Interesting story, wrong doctrine
Verified purchase
On the good side, I did get some good lines I could use to help me witness to people. However, that hardly makes up for all the wrong doctrine. So what was wrong?

1. You are NOT saved by repenting of your sins and accepting Jesus into your heart. SHOW ME ONE VERSE THAT SAYS THAT. You are saved by believing on the name of Jesus and calling upon the name of the Lord.

And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
(Act 16:30-31)

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
(Joh 3:16)

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.
(Joh 3:18)

He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
(Joh 3:36)

That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
(Joh 3:15 KJV)

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
(Rom 10:9)

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard?
(Rom 10:13-14)

To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.
(Act 10:43 KJV)

And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
(Mar 1:15)

Just to name a few. The word that keeps coming up over and over and over again in the bible is BELIEVE. It is all about grace through faith/believing. There is nothing in those verses, or a 100 others I could list about repenting of your sins or accepting Jesus into your heart. If you don't get this right, you don't get into heaven.

2. If you get number one wrong, the others don't really matter, but baptism is by immersion/dunking, not by pouring water over your head.

And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
(Mat 3:16)

How do you go straightway out of the water if you are not immersed?

You would think that a Christian organization would know and understand the bible enough to spread the gospel.

I liked how it showed how far you can go down and still be lifted back to life by God, just a wonderful movie overall. It has parts that will make you laugh and will also make you cry. Well worth the money to buy it.

I wish that Hollywood would produce more films like this, as was done in the Classic Era ...
Verified purchase
This is one of those truly inspirational movies that Hollywood simply doesn't promote or produce anymore! In fact, when it was released in theatres on the big screen, it apparently did not screen in Hollywood; but rather, it screened only in a few theatres outside of Hollywood and in the perimeters of Los Angeles, at least as far as I could tell! I had to wait until it was released on DVD to finally see it. Kevin Sorbo delivers an outstanding performance as an atheist who has his own spiritual awakening. His real-life wife Sam Sorbo, who portrays the on-screen wife of her husband's character, also delivers a powerful performance as a woman of faith who must ultimately face her own personal challenge. Whether one is a person of faith or if one is on their own individual pathway, this is a must-see thought provoking movie. I wish that Hollywood would produce more films like this, as was done in the Classic Era of Hollywood.

I really really wanted to love this movie. I am christian and really enjoyed the movie "I Can Only Imagine" even though that film had some wooden acting, it made up for it with outstanding performances by the main characters, and Dennis Quaid.

One of the problems I have with this movie is that someone who is writing a book on atheism is not going to be a jerk and an obvious drunk. He is not going to get an audience to chant during a debate about "Sex drugs and rock n roll!" It's just not believable and frankly "laugh out loud" comical.

I appreciate the message that Sorbo is trying to convey, but if this movie was designed for the unchurched to see the light, it fails miserably.
