“The Man from Earth” – Treatment of Christians Considered

» Review of “The Man from Earth” – Treatment of Christians Considered The Millennial Star.

This movie really drove home to me that it is now socially acceptable to treat Christians with contempt for their literal beliefs in a resurrected Jesus and that non-Christians won’t see it as bigotry any more. Indeed, most likely even most Christians have grown so used to it that they won’t see it as bigotry any more either. Even just a decade or two ago even non-Christians would have cringed at how the Christian was treated in this movie. But now it just seems normal to revel in the devastation of a sincere person’s Christian faith. We are in a new era.

But this movie also makes it obvious that this bigotry is rationally unjustified. (Can one rationally justify bigotry?) Christians may not have proof of their version of the story, but nor do their critics have proof of theirs or even a really good counter explanation.
