The film The Case For Christ will no doubt raise some very important questions regarding the value of truth now in today’s world.
In our ‘‘post-truth’’ era, it would seem truth has far less appeal than opinion.
And so this recent release by Pureflix is a startling and thoughtful reminder that, although Truth can be ignored, it is the only thing that can set you free.
The Case For Christ will be screening at Swanpool Cinema this Sunday only, September 17, at 1.30pm. Afternoon tea will follow.
It is the true story, set in the explosive American ’70s, of investigative reporter Lee Strobel, who will stop at nothing to get to the truth.
An ardent atheist, Lee is unexpectedly confronted with the claims of Christianity, but knows all he needs to do is discredit the Resurrection in order to free his family from its unwelcome influence.
What follows is an amazing story of one man’s desperate search for the truth, and the discovery he didn’t expect.
British novelist and academic, C.S. Lewis, summed it up well when he said: ‘‘Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.’’
This film is a sober reminder of what the world appears to have forsaken.
Entry is by donation of $5 per head.
