Only through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ can we be saved and our sins remitted. Communion alone without repentence brings damnation as it showed in this movie, and that 1 Corinthians 11:29&30 states.
I have to admit. I bought this movie because of the actor who plays the sin eater, Peter Wingfield, but I did not have high expectations for film.
I was VERY pleasantly surprised. It was a lot more enjoyable than expected. Enjoyable and thought provoking, so good in fact I bought the ebook and a paperback copy for one of the other youth group leaders. I'm thinking about bringing it to he next Youth Group movie night. It is good story or redemption - Cady's, the community's, and the Sin Eater's.
