In mid-July, the link to the movie’s website was blocked from Facebook as well as the trailer on YouTube. Facebook labeled the content as “abusive,” “unsafe” and “spammy,” according to Cameron’s Facebook post. The picture of Cameron with “facebook” written on blue tape across his mouth went viral, and Facebook restored the link the next day and apologized. The trailer has since been restored on YouTube as well.
Raymon Narez, senior journalism major, said non-Christians can often struggle with understanding why bad things happen to good people, but he said hopes the movie will “open eyes to the love that God has for us all.”
“I want people to walk out of the theater saying, ‘You know my struggles, my difficulties and my questions about faith are all part of this great big story that God is writing,’” Cameron said.
Cameron said he hopes people will leave the movie with an impression of God’s faithfulness and choose to trust him.
“I’m going to choose to believe that life is stronger than death, that good is stronger than evil and faith overcomes doubt,” he said.
