Angel in the Family, DVD
Full of the spiritual but none of Christ
We bought this to enjoy over the holidays, but we could barely watch it to the end. What in this movie even remotely alludes to Christian values? A family loses their mother, falls apart until the she re-appears and for what? The mother doesnÃ¢ÂÂt lead them to the Lord - she leads them to themselves. There is no mention of seeking God, the bible, or a church community. At the end, they ceremoniously walk to the entrance of a church for Christmas eve. Spare you money Ã¢ÂÂ there are other movies to bless your heart and encourage you in the faith

awful movie for a christian site
There is nothing Christian about this film. Where is Jesus? What is Christmas without Christ? I think this movie may be the epitome of New Age deceit. It is being sold as a "family" movie, but it may actually harm impressionable children because it gives non-Biblical conceptions about heaven and the afterlife. The cost in dollars to buy this movie is cheap, but the spiritual cost of watching it is steep.

While this movie does seem to bring comfort to grieving people, seems to be sweet and there is no swearing, it is not scriptural at all! It loses points for many things. I found the immodest necklines offensive, as well as that the fact that Sarah lived with a man for years and breaks up with him because the relationship is "not right for them and it's time to move on" seems to be quite okay. While her dad wishes they'd get married, it is not called sinful or outside of God' plan. Sarah doesn't repent for this. She just moves on. ...Do dead people really have the capability to keep tabs on what living people are doing and what is going on in their lives? Once dead, we don't have a second chance to come back to life to fix things we didn't do right the first time around in the way this film depicts. - And no one in this story had a personal relationship with Christ. No one relied on Him for help in difficulties, nor did the mother, returned from the dead, point her children to Him when she came back to fix things she'd messed up in life. Considering she returned from the realm of the dead that would have been the most important thing to her! This movie was very disappointing.
