I love the movie “The Apostle.” It shows people of faith as real people without airs and pretense, and it shows how God can use a very flawed man to do good things. In that it gives me hope.
In this scene, Sonny Dewey, a pentecostal minster played by Robert Duvall, rages at God in his anger and distress. He has lost his wife and his church. It shows how intimate prayer can be. Sonny can talk to Jesus like this because they know each other well. (If you can’t see the video, click here.)
