I was in the mood for a movie last night and found one titled ‘Dear God’. Now I was not sure of what to make of the information provided for the movie, but I did decide to watch it for about twenty minutes. At the end of the movie I was left with two questions. Can God use ordinary people to do extraordinary things? And should we literally play God? Now the answer to the first question is found all over the bible and the answer to the questions ‘Can God use ordinary people to do extraordinary things? Is yes, if you don’t believe me take a look at Esther, Gideon and the twelve disciples to see just how much God uses ordinary people. The Second question ‘Should we literally play God?’ is also a yes and is again in the bible (2 Corinthians 5:20) states that God can make his appeal through you.
‘Dear God ‘ (1996) is about a con man named Tom Turner (Greg Kinnear) who to get out of jail needs to work for a year, Tom gets a job at the post office and ends up in the dead letter area; which is where curiosity gets the better of him and he opens a Dear God letter. Tom accidently helps someone and suddenly he find himself viewed as the leader for a group of people who want to help the people who write the Dear God letters. Dear God is a comedy movie, and the only film clip I could find shows funny scenes. It is a good movie well worth watching
