Kenny and Mike offer their thoughts on the power-packed new western, The Harder They Fall as well as spot and discuss the faith elements reflected in the Netflix film.

Faith Reflected:

The cost revenge exacts in body, mind, and spirit. Also, given the  consuming wages of retribution the purpose behind Christ's, Paul's and other Biblical teaching about, grace and forgiveness and love of neighbor including if not especially one's enemies. 

Matthew 5:38-48; Luke 6:27-36

Jesus teaches that one's retaliation against another is to love, bless, and pray for them, even offer them the other cheek. The reward of showing love and forgiveness even to one's biggest enemies is the peace that comes from acting righteously and pleasing to God. There are no exeptions to forgiving and offering love.

Romans 12:19-21 Paul teaches not to seek revenge upon enemies but to offer them food and drink and love.  Leav revenge and judgement to God.  Responding by love and grace pours hot coals upon their head. One only overcomes evil by love. Revenge allows evil to overcome one. , 

PS: Although in my notes, I failed to note the this honor to Chadwick Boseman.
