"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
The movie “My Son” was produced in Texas by a local Baptist Church. According to the gentlemen I saw on FNC this morning (forgive me since I didn’t catch is name nor title at the time. No offense is intended), it brings a faith based message of the love, forgiveness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It appears to be on limited release, which isn’t surprising due to monetary issues, but what is ‘surprising’ is that the national ratings board give it an “R”.
As was said by the gentleman on Fox & Friends, the name Jesus can be used a curse word, and a film given a “PG” rating — but use the name of Jesus in regards to ‘Christian faith’ and a movie gets a “R” rating (to keep people away?).
“In its continuing efforts to reach people with the good news of Jesus Christ, Rett Church has sought new and creative ways to accomplish this goal. One example of this is Retta’s long history of ministry through media, including music videos and documentaries. In the summer of 2011, the vision of spreading the Gospel through media was expanded in the hearts of those at Retta to include the possibility of producing a feature film. Throughout the entire production process, from the writing of the script to the shooting of the film to the current marketing efforts, the goal has remained the same: to share with as many people as possible the message of hope and new life that Jesus offers in a way that they can relate to and will be easily accessible to them.
A crew of more than 40 volunteers contributed behind the scenes in various roles during the filming process. Private homes, churches, and local businesses in the Texas cities of Burleson, Alvarado, Mansfield, and River Oaks provided the backdrop for the film’s scenes.” Watch the movie trailer: here
