"For what is a man profited..."
"For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" Matthew 16:26-27. This 2018 contemporary version is more than just entertainment. There is a message in the story, a moral to the story and a lesson to be learned for the millennials, their parents and grandparents. There is harsh reality in this fictional tale. An ugly truth that has not been given serious consideration - The vulnerability and hopelessness felt by youth living in urban cities across America. We've got to find a way to turn a generation of youth to Jesus Christ for hope and salvation or we will lose them. God is mentioned several times at the beginning of the movie, but it is clear that the characters have a faulty or partial understanding of who He is and our relationship with Him. As you watch this film for the first time or second time, ask yourself this - Is Hollywood trying to tell us something?
