(FOXNEWS) — Every few years, Hollywood decides to return to the greatest story ever told. It’s a simple story about a God who decides to become a fetus, grow up in obscurity, do kind and generous things for poor people, develop a following, take on the corrupt religious establishment, and be murdered in the most brutal manner imaginable.

It does have a happy ending, so we all leave the movie feeling satisfied — even if the journey was difficult.

When this happens, and — again — it happens with some regularity, Christians must decide how to respond.

Do we like the actor they’ve selected to portray our Lord? Do we think the filmmaker has some agenda? Should we boycott the film or buy blocks of tickets to stuff the theaters full of folks who (we hope) will get saved?
