The Least Among Us

Terrific Moralistic presentation.

Uncomfortable denoting it as objectively Christian, though inference is made to Christian themes, i.e. the title, and the story context: a Seminary where the main character is training for the pastorate (though this is not the true intent of the main character).

As a moralistic presentation I suspect it would comport with Buddhism, Islam, Taoism, and just about every other religious expression on the Pike.

Having personally lived through the era and experienced the bigotry in the North and in the South during that era, I resonated with the main character’s concern in standing against injustice. As a young Naval Flight Cadet in the 50’s, I well recall being tossed off a bus in the South because I chose to sit in the rear of a bus (the front being full).

I well recall the same intense anger sitting in front of Abortion Chambers in the 80’s along with many who never professed the name of Christ yet were abhorred at the injustice of elective abortion.

To label either action as specifically “Christian” is confusing.

I was especially dismayed at the presentation of the Seminary personal. Mercy! Talk about casting a “black eye” on Christianity! Balance might have been suggested by illustrating the same type of injustice in Government Public Schools, within the US Military (I can personally attest to this as well), or within the governmental structure as a whole.

Admittedly, this is the tale of one’s experience within a Seminary context, but balance ought to have been sought given the gross ignorance of today’s generations!

Overall, I would suggest viewing this video as an illustration of what many might label: Common Grace; or what I suggest as evidence of The Creator’s hand in His creation.

Personally, it warmed my heart watching the main character contend with “evil” first hand. To be honest, it brought back a host of flooding memories!

But, I would not suggest, by any stretch of the imagination, this is a Christian presentation.

I received this video as a participant in the BookSneeze review program. My review is not influenced by the publisher.
