In the World, Not of the World (The Village)

Movie Bible Study

 

This Bible study is a spoiler for The Village.

Give summary of movie, show a few scenes, then go to the end where they pull out the photograph that shows it’s contemporary.  The whole movie, the audience assumes the setting is the 1700-1800’s, then we find out it’s in the 2000’s.

Why did these people leave “the towns”?  (crime, they wanted innocence)

What would you choose?

What does God want?

In the world, not of the world.

Matthew 5:  God wants us to be salt and light, not hide.

Talk about the difficulty of this, but the necessity.

(Next week’s Bible study is an example of people who did this.)
