No one is perfect, but sometimes not fitting in with a particular congregation might scare some people away from having a relationship with God. It’s something that Deitrick feels many people of faith have struggled with at some point or another.
“The thing is, I think people are kind of turned off a little bit from the church because we’re kind of judgmental. You can find a lot of judgmental people in the four walls of the church,”
Deitrick admitted to S2S, adding that this is one particular wound he hopes his movie can help to heal.
“I want people to feel beautiful. I want people to feel loved no matter where they are,” said Deitrick. “I just want people to feel the love of God. That’s why I called it A Beautiful Soul.”
…the main thing that Deitrick wants the audience to take away: no matter what you’ve done, or who you are, God still loves you.
“I’ve done my share of dirt,” said the singer, who wouldn’t go into detail about his misdeeds. “I have not been perfect, but the good thing about it is God…His love can reach us where we are. That’s why I wanted to share that story.”
