The upcoming film “An Interview With God” aims to give viewers a look into the genuine struggles people encounter while on their journey of faith, and Hollywood actor Hill Harper, who stars in the film, says everyone can communicate with God.
The movie will be in theaters nationwide for three nights only, Aug. 20–22 through Fathom Events. Harper said he believes the film is hitting theaters at the perfect time.
“I think that we’re in a time and place in the world where we really have to think about our relationship to God because there are a lot of challenging things meeting us here on Earth,” Harper said in an interview with The Christian Post on Tuesday. “I think many of us want to find different pathways and I think using the pathway of entertainment to introduce these types of conversations is one of the most effective ways.”
“An Interview With God” follows an “up-and-coming journalist [who] finds his world and faith increasingly challenged when he’s granted the interview of a lifetime — with someone who claims to be God,” according to the film’s synopsis.
Harper plays Gary, a boss who encourages an employee to explore his lead with “God” for a story he believes can make the front page of their paper. The accomplished film and television actor told CP that he believes everyone can talk to God if they open up to it.
“Folks have to understand that God is everywhere and God opens Himself up to a conversation with you. No matter where you are, right now, if you’re reading this, you can have a conversation with God, right now, if something is troubling you or you are trying to figure out a decision or choice,” he explained.
The Iowa native says life is just a series of choices and everyone can make the choice to communicate with God.
“If you take the time to pray, take the time to have a conversation with God, God will answer and you will find the answers,” Harper added. “Different people receive different answers in different ways.”
Harper said that responses from above can come as a message, a sign, come from a book, or a social media post. He believes that once someone opens their “mind, heart, body, soul and spirit” they will hear from God. But he added a warning:
“I will caution that oftentimes our head, ego, and fear get in the way, and we’ll start interpreting something that really isn’t a sign from God. I think that we’re seeing that [interpretation] a lot in the world, people are justifying negative acts, saying, ‘This is clearly what I was told to do or God wants this, this way,'” Harper advised.
