Gran Torino - John Van Sloten
June 28, 2009
|The parallels of God’s saving message as we find it in Clint’s film Gran Torino, and in Paul’s letter to the Romans.
Kor Khue says that you think you've been disrespected. You do not live your life. Your food has no flavor. You are scared of your past. You stopped living years and years ago. Kor Khue says you're not at peace.
Sue translating Hmong Shaman Kor Khue words to Walt (Clint Eastwood)
You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:6-8, NIV
I confess that I have no desire to confess.
Walt Kowalski (Eastwood)
Dear friends, do you think you'll get anywhere in this if you learn all the right words but never do anything? Does merely talking about faith indicate that a person really has it? For instance, you come upon an old friend dressed in rags and half-starved and say, "Good morning, friend! Be clothed in Christ! Be filled with the Holy Spirit!" and walk off without providing so much as a coat or a cup of soup—where does that get you? Isn't it obvious that God-talk without God-acts is outrageous nonsense?
The Apostle James 2:14-17, MSG

You don't understand Gran Turino, so using it to add weight to your words, when you don't even know what your neighbours dog looks like, is somewhat ironic.
