The movie Son of God surprised everybody over the weekend, bringing in $26.5 million at the box office, coming in second place. Critics had mostly responded negatively to the film before its release. On Rotten Tomatoes the movie received a 25% favourable review rating from critics. Some excerpts from those negative reviews:
Greg Musselman from Voice of the Martyrs Canada called us on the Morning Refresh to lend some credence and clarification to the statement made by Voice of the Martyrs last week that Israel is now considered a "hostile" nation towards Christians. It was enlightening and also great for Greg to give us the opportunity to respond and help.
To much of our church culture kids in youth group doing missions is not unheard of and in many ways almost expected as a 'right of passage' into adulthood Christianity. It is not uncommon to have many requests coming at you to help send this kid or that to a variety of forms of ministry.
