Faith Like Potatoes, or Biblical Faith?

  No, Faith Like Potatoes is not a truly Christian movie.  It is a movie about a fiery Charismatic “faith healer”, a likeable, personable and compassionate man who doubtless believes that the message he is preaching is the true Gospel of Christ.  But for it to be a Christian movie, it must present biblical Christianity, not the deceptions of Pentecostal/Charismatic error.  As a “Christian” movie, then, it completely fails the test.
