THE WITCH: Pride and Destruction | FCC 116

Numbers 14:18 NLT

The Lord is slow to anger and filled with unfailing love, forgiving every kind of sin and rebellion. But he does not excuse the guilty. He lays the sins of the parents upon their children; the entire family is affected—even children in the third and fourth generations.

Ezekiel 7:5-10 NLT

The day of judgment is here; your destruction awaits! The people’s wickedness and pride have blossomed to full flower.

Proverbs 16:18 YLT

Before destruction [is] pride, And before stumbling–a haughty spirit.

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.
