Episode Info: Come Sunday is a film that finally tells the story of the journey into a type of Christianity that Divine Cinema and it’s hosts abide in.  However, is it a good film? Does the filmmaking bring to life the struggle in challenging a tenant of Evangelical theology and all the loss that comes with that, or does it just make you wish hell actually exists?  Listen to find out what Jeff, Dylan and Adam think. And of course to hear where they stand on its theological merits as measured by the tried and true pieces of silver rating system.   Divine Cinema Review of Come Sunday (04:42) Ratings and Redeemed Perspectives (45:54) PLOT SUMMARY After a series of tragic events, Bishop Carlton Pearson begins to question his long standing belief in hell.  Eventually he expresses this doubt in the most public way a pastor could, through a sermon. The sermon has a ripple effect, not just through his congregation, but in his family and American Christianity.  The film follows Bishop Pearsons journey as he is labeled a heretic by many of his congregants, colleagues and even friends.
