The Mysterious Islands – Movie Review

The Mysterious Islands

The Mysterious Islands – Movie Review

A Testimony to God’s Hand in CreationA recently released documentary challenges Charles Darwin on “Ground Zero” of evolution: the Galapagos Islands. Led by Vision Forum founder Doug Phillips, the expedition covers the territory and animals Darwin visited and studied nearly 200 years ago, but comes to a very different conclusion.

Majestically filmed by award-winning Jon and Andy Erwin of Erwin Brothers Motion Pictures, the 90-minute documentary is told through the eyes of 16-year old Joshua Phillips, exploring with his father the world Charles Darwin wrote about.

The Mysterious Islands feature a lavish display of exotic animals in their native habitat including 150-year-old tortoises, flightless Cormorants, Blue Footed Boobies, and an albino whale shark, all seemingly without a normal fear of man. The tour guide related that he hadn’t seen such a rich display of animal life in 25 years.

“It’s the defining issue at the defining moment,” explained producer Doug Phillips, who planned the expedition in 2009 because of two key anniversary dates that occurred during the year — the 200th anniversary of Darwin’s birth on February 12 and 150th anniversary of the original publication of his Origin of Species on November 24. “I said ‘we’ve got to go to ground zero.’ We’ve got to go to basically the Jerusalem of the evolutionary worldview.”

Mediated Design

Instead of evolution, the documentary posits the idea of “Mediated Design,” that animals were created with genetic potential to adapt for survival. Where Darwin believed species developed from one animal into a different type, Mediated Design says that animals were created with the genetic potential to change. A salt-spitting iguana, remarkably similar to those in South America, developed it’s salt spitting potential when there was little food on land and the lizards had to feed in the sea and eliminate the salt from their bodies.

The Mysterious Islands is told through the eyes of 16-year-old Joshua Phillips on an adventure with his father. “The ideas and the vision of one generation will help shape the next, for good, or for evil. It was true in Darwin’s day, and it will be in mine as well,” Joshua says.

His father, Doug Phillips ends with, “We need to take our children to the field. We must take them to where the battle rages. The compromises of past generations have left a painful legacy for them to overcome, but by God’s grace they will overcome.”

A story that urges you to trust in God with full faith, even when you are in difficult times. This movie is based on a true story of a man in South Africa called Angus, he lived with his family on a farm. When they got there, they started to make friends, but this man was very worried when he heard bad news about the harvest, and other troubles that were happening there. He was tired of fighting in between but he did not want to be defeated.

One day his wife´s friend invites them to the church, where they decide to follow Jesus Christ and then they unleash the Faith as never before. For example: Angus asked God, for a rain to come, even when it was not the time to rain, but it suddenly started to rain, God answered him according to his faith.

Since then he started to believe in God entirely, and devoted himself to preaching the word of God. His first experience was that through a prayer of Faith , he resurrected a lady, and through that miracle many believed in Christ. Angus became a godly man, he loved the big challenges. He asked god for a large stadium to pray for his country, as it is written: If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14.

He perfectly understood it, and for that reason he wanted to call everyone to pray for the nation. But before carrying out this faith step, an unfortunate thing happened. While he was driving the tractor, one of the children on board fell and then died. After this Angus felt guilty for not being able to improve the situation. However, he was increasing his level of faith through these troubles.

The fact that we are Christians does not mean that everything will be good for us. God says he will be with us even in the midst of trouble and he will deliver us from all wrong. Angus was still worried, but God kept saying “Trust in me”. Meanwhile he prepared the meeting prayer and planned to harvest the potatoes, even when it was not time to harvest them. The Faith works like a charm. When all seemed to be lost, God said there is still hope. Finally both the harvest and the prayer meeting become grand success. Praise the Lord!

Preacher’s Kid – Movie Review

Preacher's Kid - Movie

Preacher’s Kid (2010)

Director: Stan Foster
Release Date: 29 January 2010

Cast : Letoya Luckett, Kiki Sheard, Durrel Babbs, Clifton Powell, Gregalan Williams, Sharif Atkins

This story talks about Angie. She is a twenties girl, the Pastor´s daughter, who wanted to experience all the things of this world. She said ‘I am tired of being the Pastor´s daugther’ and she disobeyed her father and started to go out to nightclubs. Then she meets Devlin who is a singer. She was so delighted by the fame that he has, and he became her first love. Shortly after she preferred to go with him, than to be at the church with her real friends and her Father. Apparently Devlin loved her, but he was just taking advantage of the situation.

She continued with Devlin, thinking that she would get success : fame, luxury, money, in short, all the ephemeral things that the world has to offer. She changed her way of dressing, habits and many things just to be a famous person. (This world can offer you a lot of money, jewelry, trips, but what good will it be for a man even if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Matthew 16:26, do not be distracted or do not compare those things with the unconditional love of God. If you believe in God, He will give you all that you need).

Finally when she realized the kind of person that Devlin was, she just wanted to go home, but thought that her father would not forgive her. So she continued to suffer the ill-treatment of Devlin, but he always tried to justify his actions.

Until the day she left him. And got back home like the prodigal son in Bible. There we see the great forgiving love of her father who receives her with open arms. As the bible says: “But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found” – Luke 15:32

However it is not necessary that we all should pass through these type of cases, to realize our Heavenly Father’s abundant love for us. If you are on the right way to God, go ahead and do not stop for anything or anyone. You should accept that He guides your life because the enemy will say, “Enjoy the things of this world for now, and about the consequences we will talk later” and our lovely God says, “Believe in me and you will have eternal life”.

You choose! A short lived pleasure on earth OR eternal life with God?
