CNN's Finding Jesus: Faith, Fact Forgery
I was able to view the first installment and found it enlightening and done with a flair that held my attention throughout. By the end of the episode, we are once again reminded that no matter the evidence, supportive or conflicting, our faith is built on just that, faith.
Where Was God?
If problems can’t be escaped no matter how rich, famous, bright or beautiful one may become, then maybe there’s an ethereal reason for these inescapable adversities. Maybe our struggle through toil and trouble is one of the main reasons we are here, for these woes cause us to trust in God.

Where Was God?
...is a question that will come up in each life, for at some point we all have or will experience ordeal of some kind. During those moments a person feels vulnerable, alone, and God seems so quiet. That’s an unsettling thought, I know, but it’s true. No one gets through life without problems.

Are Faith-Based Films Becoming Too Socially Correct?
