The movie’s Christian worldview views the subject of abandonment and adoption in the context of biblical theology. It represents God the Father’s adoption, through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, of the predestined elect, all of whom are incapable of fending for themselves, like the orphans shown in this movie. It also affirms the biblical declaration that all humans are worthy because they are created in the image of God.
THE DROP BOX serves as a reminder and encouragement for people, especially Christians, to uphold all life. Furthermore, it reminds believers of Galatians 4:4-7, which says, “But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And, because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son in our hearts, crying, ‘Abba! Father!’ So, you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.” The movie also reminds viewers of Genesis 1:27, which says, “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” Thus, in many ways, God is at the center of this movie.
THE DROP BOX is an extremely worthwhile documentary. It’s designed for viewers above a fifth grade level, so all older children, teenagers and adults are encouraged to watch THE DROP BOX.
