New interesting movie on streaming Netflix: "COME SUNDAY"

The film tells the true life story of Rev. Carlton Pearson, an evangelical minister who gave up on the idea of Hell and how his religious community then abandoned him. His story was presented on the radio show This American Life. The producers of that show helped create the movie. 

It's truly amazing how people want to believe in everlasting hellfire/damnation and will fight with all their being to keep that belief -- even to deserting and condemning anyone who tries to convince them God is at least as loving and merciful as they are (most people admit that they themselves wouldn't be able to condemn anyone that way).  Come Sunday is a good movie, telling how Pearson's life changed dramatically when he realized he had been preaching and believing the wrong message.
