A Christian’s Take on “Do You Believe” Warning: Spoiler Alert

In my opinion “Do You Believe” is this generation’s “In His Steps”. “In His Steps” is a fiction book that tells of a pastor and his church that change a community when they take seriously the question, “What Would Jesus Do”. This movie is similar in that Matthew, a pastor, challenges his church to ask themselves, “Do you believe in the cross of Christ.”

The story really begins when Malachi, a street preacher who carries around a huge wooden cross, walks up to Matthew’s car and asks him, “Do you believe in the cross of Christ?” Matthew’s response is, “I am a pastor.” Malachi says, “That isn’t what I asked you, I asked you if you believe in the cross of Christ?” Matthew responds that he does believe in the cross of Chris and this begins an awakening in his faith. He realizes that if he really believes in the cross then it should change the way he lives. On the following Sunday he then passes out a pocket sized cross to all of his church members and challenges them to answer the question, “Do you believe in the cross of Christ”.

The movie then tells the story of 12 people somehow related to his church and how they come to the point of experiencing an awakening in their faith because they realize that to believe in the cross means giving up their pride, their comfort, and even their lives.

So is this movie simply for Christians? No, I believe everyone will enjoy this movie, matter of fact I think it is important that as Christians we get all of our unbelieving friends to go see this movie. While the movie may not be a blockbuster, it is a powerful jolt to the heart asking believer and unbeliever alike, “Do you believe in the cross of Christ and what difference has that made in your life”.

If you have seen the movie, please share this post on Facebook.
