The Imposter

The Imposter has a great story, fascinating characters, and excellent acting. It's a very entertaining movie with some great Christian music in the movie, as well as Christian music being part of the backdrop of the story. Kevin Max, formerly of DC Talk, plays the main character. He's the charismatic lead singer of a Christian band. His performance is spot on.

Romans 10:9 states that if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:10 further states that is it with your heart that you believe and are justified and it with your mouth that you confess and are saved.

The Imposter gives a stunning example of those two verses. We constantly hear people say they are Christians. But do they really believe that in their heart? Do they really have a personal, living relationship with Jesus Christ? Sadly, the truth is that many people claim they are a Christian, but they aren't.

Besides Kevin Max's role, the supporting characters are very strong and very unique. I especially enjoyed the role of "Proff", which was played by Kerry Livgren. Livgren is one of the founding members and primary songwriters for the band Kansas. As Proff, Livgren portrays a man that has much wisdom, and is able give sage advice to others. His biblically inspired advice is not what people want to hear most of the time, but it is what they need to hear.

Even if you are not familiar with DC Talk, Kansas, or Christian music in general, I still recommend this movie. The movie makes you think, without preaching at you. The supporting characters are truly outstanding. And in a nod to real life, things are not conveniently tied up in a nice package with a bow in the end like most movies are.
