An up-close look at the true nature of the sex trade. The film unveils a growing problem in major U.S. cities where girls as young as 12 years old are bought and sold as many as 15 times a ... See full summary »
A washed-up former child star, forced to do community service at a local megachurch, pretends to be a Christian to land the part of Jesus in their annual Passion Play, only to discover that the most important role of his life is far from Hollywood.
An epic journey, faithfully adapted to modern-day. Christian faces distractions, challenges, and perils at every turn of the way. But ends victorious, with helpful guides, as he stays on the narrow path to the distant Celestial City.
The Heart of Man is a cinematic retelling of the parable of the Prodigal Son, interwoven with true testimonials of personal and sexual brokenness. Narrative storytelling and documentary filmmaking are combined like never before to reveal the compassionate heart of God the Father for His sons and daughters, illuminating an age-old truth: shame is not a barrier to God's love, but a bridge to absolute transformation, victory, freedom, and hope.
Hi, can I have my money back? Pretty sure I donated $200 for the production of this film (Passion 2013 supported these guys). Wish y'all would have told me you were created a therapeutic inclusivistic (we are all sons and daughters of God) film with barely any substance for a non-believer or someone who is actually broken in sexual sin to cling to. Not the cross of Christ, not the forgiveness of sins solely through Jesus and the holy lifestyle that follows after. Anyways, maybe I should have known when I saw the author of the shack within the first 3 minutes of the film. Honestly, upset that Jackie Hill Perry didn't vet through some of this and saw that this film would do barely and good and give a skewed view of God. If you are a Bible believing Christian, you will not be entertained and not like the focus of the film on shame, fear, and the weak view of God as Father instead of the realities of bondage to sin and needing Christ.
Also, EXTREMELY boring film. Literally I would fast-forward the documentary just to get to a point where they were talking about something. Like, poorly made production quality, seemed like they were advertising a vacation resort in the bahamas instead of a sexual brokenness documentary. Typical 21st century mainline christianity though, just take a look at any Hillsong / Elevation music video and this is like an hour long version of that.
Reason why I gave it a three instead of a 1? Because I do think there are some good truths to this film -- the reality of the brokenness of sexual sins and the restoration of life through forgiveness. The problem is, it was all moralistic instead of a focused attention to Jesus Christ and your identity needing to be rooted in him. Also, I like Jackie Hill Perry and I couldn't give her a 1, she saved the film.
