A non-believer who is searching

If asked I guess I'd have to be honest and say I'm an atheist, although I don't understand the modern day atheists and their hatred of Christians. I personally don't find any reason to celebrate as I think of my own life ending and that's all there is.

Christianity of all the religions is the only one that gives me some spark of hope, however most Christian films are pretty sub par, sorry Christians, I'm just being honest.

This film however, is 1 of the exceptions. To be honest, many of the criticisms of this film aren't lying as far as the films content goes - yes, this is a film with very little "nice" things happening, people are imprisoned, killed, and persecuted, (tho thankfully not in graphic detail like in "Passion") it does have "boring" stretches, and it only shows the sad end of Paul's life.

However, I think maybe people aren't understanding that this film chose to show this for a reason. Paul's faith, as well as the faith of Luke and the other Christians, shows through all the more when contrasted with this horrible world he was living in.

Whether or not I personally am ever able to find some faith, at the very least I can't help but marvel at what these people endured for their beliefs, how many people ever have something so dear to them in their lives, how many people ever have such courage? How many modern day Christians would stay strong if put to such a test?

To those nitpicking the little things, I really say take another look and think it over, you're missing the gravity of what these people went through and depth of their beliefs, crazy as it sounds, despite the physical pain they endured, I envy them.
