This is the best movie I have ever watched!!!!!
2 September 2012 | by foxylady-2001See all my reviews

I seen this movie on television Saturday, at first I wasn't going to watch it, but something really wanted me to watch this movie, so i did & was so glad that I did watch "Saving God"! I don't usually get into movies as I did watching "Saving God", but I couldn't even leave my chair to get a drink of water, as I didn't want to miss any of this movie. This movie, was so heart touching & emotional to me, I could feel the presence of God in this movie!! I cried at of the scenes, & at the end, when the drug lord had planned on killing the Pastor, but the end of movie turned different in what the drug lord did & asked the pastor, that was when the presence of God was so strong to me, that I asked Jesus to forgive my sins & asked Him into my life to stay forever! This movie is for everyone, not just of race, or people involved in drugs, but for anyone that hasn't invited Christ into your heart & life! I highly recommend this movie to everyone! I am going to buy the movie, if I can find it!! May God Bless everyone!
