Grace Unplugged has been my favorite movie for a long time, for more reasons than one. It had been a while since I had sat down and watched the whole thing but I stumbled upon this clip today and realized again why I love it. In my opinion, it is by far one of the best Christian films created, but this clip shows why. This scene with Grace and Quentin does not skirt around the issue and they definitely do not ignore the real problem with Christians today. Quentin says it perfectly and it is something that everyone struggles with at some point in their life: "Grace, why do you want this? Why do you want any of this? Because if you want it, just for yourself, there's always gonna be something missing. You could sell millions of albums, you could be bigger than Rene, that's not what really matters. ...You think maybe it's like he says? We know it, in our heads but do we really own it? Is Jesus Christ really who you're living for? 'Cause I don't think your problems are just with your dad, I think maybe you're fighting God. I mean, that was my story." This clip actually says the truth of why we struggle. I think that today a lot of Christian movies are cheesy and tend to be a little lower budget but in this movie, there is no shortage of power. Every single time that I play this clip or watch this part of the film, it hits me that 3/4 of the time, things don't turn out the way that we want them to because we are living for ourselves. We fight God on a daily basis at the drop of a hat, and we really shouldn't. I'm speaking from experience as well, sometimes this is something that we do in our subconscious and that is so dangerous that we don't even think about it before resisting God's plan for us. Brad J. Silverman (writer) makes some excellent points throughout the entire movie and I applaud him for writing such a powerful script that shows the truth behind why we do what we do. This movie is one that everyone needs to see, and I promise you will not be dissapointed. Starring AJ Michalka, Jamie Grace, Shawnee Smith, James Denton, and Kevin Pollak.
