Why is there pain and suffering in the world? If there is a god, then why does he not fix my problems? Why does he not heal my friend, my family member, or me? Does he not hear my prayer? I thought God is supposed to be good? These types of questions and many others focusing on the relation of good and evil are addressed in Kirk Cameron’s film “Unstoppable”
Cameron’s central question, “Why does God let bad things to happen to good people?”, is interwoven in a narrative style accompanied by powerful visuals drawing the viewer deeper into God’s story of the world.
“Unstoppable” juxtaposes biblical truth of the past along with Cameron’s personal experience, the loss of a young man who made an impact in his life and left him with questions driving Cameron to make the film.
Although the film may come across as not actually answering the root question, the truth is revealed and supported on a viable and proven source, the bible. Running only sixty-five minutes long, “Unstoppable” is worth viewing especially if you are struggling with the question of “Why…?”
Establishing a foundation based upon Genesis and the initial entrance of evil into the world, “Unstoppable” breaks down the direction connection between good and evil and narrows in on God’s plan of redemption for the world.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
