Paramount Pictures has acquired the rights to the theological trainwreck that is 2018’s Reckless Love by Cory Asbury. The movie will be produced by DeVon Franklin, who famously commercialized the heresy-promoting story of Colton Burpo going to heaven in the 2014 film Heaven is for Real. Franklin apparently has yet to meet a heresy he is unwilling to commercialize to gullible Christians.
The song Reckless Love is about an entirely different God than the one known through scripture. Asbury places God into a human-sized box, assigning the holy and perfect Creator of All Things human concerns and weaknesses. In a 2017 Facebook response to the criticism of his heretical song, Asbury wrote about God’s love:
He [God] is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn’t crafty or slick. It’s not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it’s quite childlike, and I might even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous.
I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit. He seriously called God’s actions childlike. This is a horrifyingly apostate version of God found nowhere in scripture. Instead, the Bible reveals a Sovereign God who is entirely concerned with the consequences of all His actions – namely the Glory of His Name. Reckless is not part of the equation. Cory Asbury’s God is something else entirely – the God of emotionally-driven commercialism.
It is no coincidence that the movie will focus on “the true love story behind [the] critically acclaimed Christian worship song,” since the song is nothing but a cheesy teenage love ballad sold to gullible would-be Christians desperate for warm fuzzies from boyfriend Jesus instead of Almighty Savior Jesus. Faithful believers should steer clear.
