Oh noooos. FREEPERS heads are going to explode. They were saying the other day on another thread that they are going to boycott this film because they didn’t have enough hours to keep the Obama Devil in the movie……Most on here will be wearing black clothes today upon hearing this news.

I saw ‘the Bible’ on tv. Is there enough difference in the New Testament part of the miniseries from the movie to warrant the trip?

Roma Downey is a New Ager. Do you trust her to tell you about God or His Son?

I thought it was unfair to associate the Devil with Obama. The Devil doesn’t play golf every weekend and take vacations every other month.

I don't go to movies to be told or do I trust anything they say. I go for the entertainment. I went to see Gravity and don't believe I will ever get up into space. I went to see 2 Guns and most likely won't be out in the middle of the desert shooting Denzel Washington or Mark Walburg. Tomorrow when I am at Mass, I will learn all about God…..the movie I will not. Thanks for the concern though.

Do you know how many people will believe it? Lots. They bought her tripe last time. Had her speak at churches. It should concern us that she’s a false witness.

That is true. The only thing I hate sometimes is the hypocrisy of some. I remember the overblown outrage about Games of Throne showing a mast that sorta looked like Bush on a pole and they said it was disrespectful to the president. Well we get a President that we don't like and is seen as the Devil and that suddenly is ok and the Presidency is no big deal. I just hate hypocrisy regardless. It is childish and immature.

Saw the movie yesterday and here’s what I posted.

I just saw it. Drove 60 miles to have dinner and watch the show with a dear friend. I did not see the Bible Series so can’t compare but this falls short especially if you are not knowledgeable about the Bible. I knew when they had the wisemen at the manger scene we were in for some inerrancy issues. The BIGGEST TRAVESTY OF THE EXPERIENCE WAS HAVING TO SIT THROUGH TRASHY PREVIEWS OF COMING ATTRACTIONS. DEFINITELY NOT FOR FAMILY VIEWING OR FOR THAT MATTER ANYONE’S VIEWING . . THIS WENT ON FOR A GOOD HALF HOUR! Except for my friend, I knew no one in the theatre and the response to the show was tepid at best and there was concern about the lack of opportunities for the non-saved viewers to get a Salvation message out of it. I found myself coming home to do a fact check in my Bible and suggest if you go, you do the same. Maybe it was the blatant omission of key scriptures or the inclusion of half scriptures such as Jesus saying “I am the Way the Truth and the Life . . . . the ending of that scripture never was given “no man comes to the Father but by Me” John 14:6

More time should have been spent sharing the Gospel on the Christian networks rather than devoting whole shows that spent time rehashing the making of the movie and “fawning” over the producers.

May I suggest the following for excellent resources. They have just remasterd the Jesus Film in HD http://jesusfilmhd.com/ or the Voice of the Martyrs film Jesus He Lived Among Us can be purchased in bulk for next to nothing We gave out hundreds at Christmas time and are still distributing. https://secure.persecution.com/p-5088-jesus-dvd-sleeve-pack-of-20-englishspanish.aspx

Actually it was the omissions throughout the movie that really caught my attention. I just thought to myself. . .”this movie is a major lost opportunity to minister to the lost” and it also didn’t do anything to enhance a church goer’s Bible knowledge other than perhaps provide the impetus to go home and review the events portrayed in the movie “in toto”.

A thought just occurred to me . .why didn’t they entitle the movie THE SON OF GOD. By their not quoting the entire Lord’s prayer and the entire verse John 14:6 I am the way the truth and the Life “no man comes to the Father but my me”, it leaves the movie really implying there are more than one sons of God and other ways to get to heaven.

While you are at it.. .

I agree, but I think there is a difference in showing a dismembered likeness of a President as opposed to showing an Obama-lookalike as the Devil.

Exactly and same here. I never, ever mix the entertainment with the political and find it pretty easy. I go to be entertained. I feel for those that just can’t separate the two. They really miss out.

You have a point, but even if they had Obama dismember on a spike would bring joy to some on here. I don’t mind so much but I just wish they would stop being so hypocritical that is all. Actually, I wish they would just look at a movie being a movie and maybe have some reality….10 hours of movie has to be cut down to 2 hours….something has to be deleted. So what if they got rid of the devil.

Why don’t you please focus on what we have in common, which is much, instead of pridefully spouting off on things of which you know little about?

Focus on the log that is in your own eye, and in your own church’s eye, instead of the speck in someone else’s.

They do miss out. I thought that Saving Mr. Banks was an incredible movie and ALMOST did not go because of the negativity on here about it. What a dang shame it would have been if I had listened to the naysayers here. I also saw 12 Years a Slave and thought it was a great movie…..after I saw it (thankfully) the bashing of the movie started showing up and I just shake me head. I really love Free Republic except for the movie threads….I don’t mind people not liking a movie or even think that it stinks but it is the arrogance that only they are right that gets to me.

btw on rottentomatoes.com 23% of the movie critics’ reviews were positive but 82% of the public approved of it. One typical review squib from someone at rogerebert.com:
“It was made by earnest people who want to spread the word. But it’s a tough draught to swallow if you’re not in the mood for a sermon.”

Movie critics can be pretty dismissive of stuff we like. A friend of mine is an amateur (admittedly) movie critic,
an American of Kenyan heritage just like you know who,
and a liberal and he hated, hated, HATED Atlas Shrugged I...
Raves about 12 Years a Slave.

It is interesting how people look at movies differently. Actually the loser this weekend is poor Liam Neeson whose “Non Stop” is going to be trounced by Son of God which will probably make around 50 million this weekend.

“Most on here will be wearing black clothes today upon hearing this news.”

I agree. Those who agree with Hollywood’s ‘artistic liberty’ to alter God’s Holy Word may do just that on Judgment Day.

REVELATION 22:18-19
18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. 19 And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll.

> Roma Downey is a New Ager. Do you trust her to tell you about God or His Son?

My discernment kicks in when I see her wearing “bling” and cleavage down to her ribcage dresses. I don’t know many real Christian women who dress like that. I remember how The Bible miniseries also omitted any reference to homosexuality as being one of the reasons Sodom and Gomorrah fell and a black bodybuilder with dreadlocks that play Samson for starters.
I can see the movie suggesting that Jesus set up elaborate magic tricks to get the attention of people to make them listen to him or rewriting things out of context to create doubt. I don’t trust Hollywood with something as important as the Bible under the current regime in the WH who are masters at deception and do use te media to change people’s opinions and manipulate them.

IMHO......I could care less about whether the “Obama Devil Satan” is in the Son of God movie. Why??? Because I do not want a film reminder that Obama is a “Satan”!!! He is...and if not...he is doing Satan’s evil bidding (destroying the USA)!!! End of Story!!! Also...I have not yet seen the movie Son of God...will view it tomorrow with the Mrs. But...I did view the entire miniseries of “The Bible” and loved it.

You must put this film into proper focus. The times that Jesus was brought forth into humanity by our Father in Heaven were very much like those, today!!! Corrupt politians (Obama), religion failing (Christians demonized by Obamabots, Jews adrift at sea,looking for salvation, etc.), despots (Obama, the false Roman Tyrant King) occupying the land, poor people just getting by (failed, corrupt leaders, like Obama lies) Just as Jesus cahnged history & the world...we need to do the same in our own lives and the life of our beloved free Nation!!!

Thank God there are some people who recognize the truth and lies.

This movie is a blasphemy and all who worship it are kneeling at the feet of the father of all lies. The reckoning is coming and they will fall on the wrong side of judgement.

He is a Brit I believe, she is Northern Irish or Irish. I watched them on Hannity, they seemed okay. I enjoyed the Bible series. The movie may not be perfect but from what I saw on the Bible series, it’s not bad. I watched the Bible’s depiction of Acts and of Paul and the Road to Damascus, not bad and I don’t recall seeing that done in a movie before or at least not that well done. There is a movie on Paul out there.

The dialogue seems wooden and the Jesus looks like a soap opera heartthrob. Roma Downey is also a freak who I don’t trust. Passion of the Christ grabbed you by the throat and the visuals were arresting and very real. All the same, Son of God will make a mint at the box office, but nowhere near POTC’s $700 million.

I thought the Bible was filmed in Israel/Mideast.

Here are some advisers to the Bible series, they don’t look like a bunch of newagers/Hollywood mavens:


Rick Warren (pastor, Saddleback Church)
Erwin McManus (pastor, Mosaic)
Sam Rodriguez (National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference)
Paul Eshleman (Campus Crusade for Christ)
Bobby Gruenewald (YouVersion Bible)
Brad Lomenick (Catalyst)
Leith Anderson (president, National Association of Evangelicals)
Frank Wright (president, National Religious Broadcasters)
Tom Peterson (Catholics Come Home)
Gabe Lyons (founder of the Fermi Project)
Luis Palau (Christian evangelist)
George Wood (General Superintendent of the General Council of the Assemblies of God in the United States of America)
Craig Groeschel (Life Church)
Denny Rydberg (Young Life)
Andrew Benton (president, Pepperdine University)”
