I finally saw the movie “No Country For Old Men” this past weekend. It was a great movie, the best I’ve seen in a long time. One of the things that I appreciated about the movie were the theological implications that it drew out. I think the main point that the movie made was that sin perpetuates itself and eventually kills us. Its interesting how one bad/immoral decision had so many implications on the main character’s life – and the lives of all the people in his family.
As I have been studying Colossians over the past 2 months one of the things that stands out to me the most is the difference that happens in us when we are transfered from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of His son whom he loves (Col 1:13-14). No Country For Old Men illustrated ‘beautifully’ what it looks like to continue living in the kingdom of darkness.
