This is a funny yet serious movie, even sad. Sad because it shows that even churches can be dysfunctional. So - the movie has a little bit of every type of real life. Fortunately it was made by Christians and thus the usual Hollywood tricks for skin and sex and other "thrillers" are not included - just real life stuff. The good and bad of it is that it shows that people, their egos, pride, pet projects can get in the way of the greater good - and this is bad. The good part is that if you pray, listen to what is right in the eyes of God, then things work out well - not matter the opposition - and this is good. Watch it, you will like it.

Accidentally happened on this movie and was glad I watched it. Many Christian movies try and present a reality that is either aspirational or divorced from reality. This one doesn't. It addresses issues in the church community head-on. The church, like any other organisation is plagued by a lack of strategy, structure and the abuse of power and position. That is just how it is. And this movie presents it as such. A really different movie with some great moments. Brings church into community - not above it.
This was one of the wierdest Christian movies I've ever seen. I'm not sure what the folks behind Seven Deadly Words had as an intention. If they wanted to show Fundamentalist Christians as narrow minded and selfish no atheist could have done a better job. A new pastor Roy Lynam has moved to town to take over a church in Connersville, Indiana where this film was shot. He gets opposition from most of the church elders for his new ideas. But especially from the head elder Mark Ginther who regards this church as his private preserve. I've seen this plot gambit used by other more mainstream films like One Foot In Heaven and A Man Called Peter and used successfully. But here it is taken to truly idiotic extremes. Yet overall this film about church politics in Connersville rings true in many areas.
The plot was extremely poor in this film and there was a total lack of Christian message in the film, moreover the photography was poor. Being from the UK and not an American I have no idea what happens in your small country towns. The US appears flawed in their faith community, and here are yet another group of Do Gooders trying to politicise the gospel message of salvation. There is no salvation in the works of the law, no evangelistic message, just a twisted message of small town politics.
Enjoyed this movie. The point of the movie is so real in many churches
