I have been not feeling well the last several days and watching some Christian movies on NetFlix and really enjoying it. However, while watching a particular movie “In The Blink of an Eye” in which the David Ramsey (played by David A. R. White) is not a Christian as the rapture happens, I got to thinking. In the movie in a twist and turn of events, David keeps repeating this day over and over again similar to the movie “Groundhog Day” but takes place on a boat in the tropics. Filming a Christian movie on a boat in the tropics as got to be really really cool and to me that means that it must be awesome to be in or work on a Christian film.
If I had my choice when I was teenager growing up, I would have been an actor and not just any actor but a really good one. Today, I would love to think that I had the chops to be one but really don’t know. I do know that I can be quite a character and enjoy the concept of playing a role but being in a movie is a whole other beast. But I would love it if I could with the talent and the filmmakers who wanted me. I just think that would be awesome.
On the flip side, I have no experience in this, but it seems like if you were going to work on a film, working on a Christian film would be the ultimate. Not only would you be working on a film that can touch and change people’s lives, I would think you would be working with people who call on Jesus as their Lord. And that would have to be awesome.
In reality, after watching about a dozen Christian films in the last week, I really wonder if those people are saved. The movies and stories are great but some of the actors and actresses have questionable other recent projects as well as behaviors. Perhaps it is just because they live in the Hollywood style environment and perhaps I am being too critical. But I just can’t help but think that some of the talent, especially some of the actors and actresses, are doing these films because they are a job and not because Jesus is the center of their lives.
In either case, I think working on a Christian film has gotta be awesome!
