“Fireproof” movie out on DVD today!

January 27, 2009 2 comments

The DVD is released today! We purchased two of the movies to have one for ourselves and one to loan to some people in our church. We are hoping they will watch it and buy a copy, too!

If you haven’t seen this movie, we recommend you see it to strengthen your relationship with God and others. It not only has a great message but it is funny with good action scenes and solid acting.

-Mark (allowing the Lord to work through me to “fireproof” the marriages we see in biblical counseling everyday!)

Fireproof is showing at the Carmike Cinemas in B’ham on Lorna Road and only costs a one dollar for all showings!

I highly recommend this film to married couples. If you have not seen it and live in B’ham, go this week to see it in the cinema since the movie will not be there for much longer!

$1.00 is an unbeatable price for a great movie that will strengthen your faith and encourage you!

-Mark (praying for the reconciliation of many marriages right now!)

There are so many great aspects in this movie. For example, the relationship between a father and son is a wonderful depiction of Christianity.

The movie will challenge you and motivate you to be a better spouse, a better son, a better daughter, and a better person!

Something to notice in this fantastic movie is the idea of INFLUENCE. Who are the characters listening to? Are the voices they are hearing godly or ungodly?

I won’t give this part of the movie away but it is an important element to notice.

Apply it to your own life: are your influences godly or ungodly? Peer pressure leads people to make poor decisions quite often.

Again, one of my favorite parts of the Fireproof movie is when a character tells another person to “lead his heart.” He clearly meant that you cannot follow your heart’s feelings but you must lead your heart by being obedient to God’s Word.

In secular psychology, the emphasis is often on “feelings.” Most counselors in that realm of psychology try to address one’s feelings which is futile. Feelings change as one changes his/her thinking. What a cognitive-behavioral secular counselor does is try to change one’s thinking but what is the counselor’s standard? Not the Bible. Instead, the standard comes from the counselor!!! They deny this but it’s reality.

Everyone has standards by which they live: their own OR God’s. It’s really that simple.

I urge you to lead your heart by God’s standards found in His Word of truth in love!

-Mark (replacing my standards with God’s standards every day of my life)

One of my favorite parts of the Fireproof movie (about saving marriages in a God-centered way) is when one of the characters says something like: “Don’t let your heart lead you. You’ve got to lead your heart.”

It’s so true! We’ve got to obey God’s Word of truth even if our feelings are telling us not to! Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego obeyed God in Daniel chapter 3. I’m sure their feelings were NOT positive about going into that fiery furnace but they obeyed God.

We’ve got to lead our hearts with God’s Word of truth in all things!

-Mark (trying hard to lead and not follow my heart)

Divorce (part 1)

So many believe the lie that a divorce is going to fix their marital problems! It’s simply not true. A divorce simply complicates and frustrates the relationship.

When the couple has children, it further adds problems as children hear each parent destroy the other parent with hurtful words, live under 2 confusing sets of rules in the 2 homes, and often wrongly blame themselves for the divorce.

No wonder God hates divorce. Do you hate divorce? Can you urge others to stay married despite how they feel (i.e. “I don’t feel that I love her anymore” OR “I love him but I can’t live with him anymore”)?

That’s why I really like the Fireproof film b/c it encourages fighting for your marriage no matter how you feel! Feelings come and go and thankfully that’s NOT how the Lord loves us!

-Mark (I hate the pain caused from a divorce)
