Kirk Cameron is a beast, in a good way. I admire his gumption. He stands up for what he believes and takes the criticism in stride. His new movie, “Unstoppable,” is coming out on September 24th. You can only view it for one night, so make sure to find a movie theatre near you that is hosting the event. Unstoppable is a good word to describe Kirk Cameron after his battle with Facebook and YouTube. Those two iconic sites tried to ban the “Unstoppable” movie trailer from being promoted on their sites. I wonder if Facebook and YouTube realized how ironic that was. Kirk wasn’t going down without a fight. He asked all of his friends and fans to go to battle with him and help him overthrow the ban. Today, congratulations are in order. The Unstoppable trailer has lived up to its name. You can view it here.
What I don’t understand is why Facebook and YouTube are cool with obscene movie trailers and videos promoting other religions but they frown upon videos like the trailer for “Unstoppable”. You bring the name of Jesus into a video and all of a sudden all heck breaks looks. Literally. I don’t know why the world doesn’t see the obvious blaring truth that there must be something to this Jesus or the world wouldn’t fight Him so hard. Jesus causes more controversy than any name in history. That’s because Jesus is the only God that Satan needs to fight against. Jesus Christ is the living and true God. His name brings fear or ferocious love depending on whose side you are on. I can’t wait for the day when God returns and every knee bows, even those who refuse to believe in Him and try to silence his voice.
I, for one, am celebrating Kirk’s victory. “Unstoppable” is a movie that deals with the problem of evil. It addresses why bad things happen to good people if God is so loving and all powerful. These are concepts that every Christ follower wrestles with. The reality that a good God allows bad things to happen has become one of the reasons why people reject Jesus. This is going to be a powerful movie, and the trailer deserves to be heard. Why? Because God IS good even though we live in a fallen world, and the radical love of Jesus Christ is….Unstoppable.
