Use These Key Verses When Watching THE JUNGLE BOOK
Freedom from the Law…
Romans 7:6 ESV
But now we are released from the law, having died to that which held us captive, so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit and not in the old way of the written code.
The strength of the church is the members…
Romans 12:5 CEB
In the same way, though there are many of us, we are one body in Christ, and individually we belong to each other.
Christian Themes In Your Favorite Movies
In Finding Christ In Cinema we dig deeper into the silver-screen classics of yesteryear as well as the box-office hits of today. We take a closer look at the stories they tell and see if we find the face of Jesus looking back. Together we explore the deeper meanings of these films; their plots and their twists; the characters and their choices; and see how we can relate them to the gospel of salvation and ultimately our Christian walk.
