7 Hollywood Films That Teach Christian Lessons
Forrest Gump - Love God, Love Others
“Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
Forrest Gump, the award winning film from 1994 based on the book of the same name, teaches us what's msot important in life. It tells the story of Forrest Gump, a simple-minded southern boy whose IQ is reportedly lower than 75. Despite, or perhaps because of his handicap, Forrest leads a life free of the inhibitions or insecurities we all face and is focused exclusively on seeing the good in people and in life as a whole. He loves God and he loves his momma, and his profound impact on significant historical events as wall as the people around him is a clear result of his ability to live in a such a pure, loving way.
