It's April 2, my birthday! And that means the Bible movie from History is coming onto DVD!
My birthday wish: for you to read the actual Bible. Roma Downey and her husband did the best job trying to honor the Word of God despite the countless liberties taken. They did show that man is truly sinful, that Jesus is truly God (finally, when he told the Pharisees "I am"), and that he's truly alive. I loved the last hour of the resurrection and Acts. Now, like most movies, the book is even better.
I think I was more offended by their sponsors. I think both Roman and Protestant Catholics can both uproar when they showed a frickin' IUD commercial! AGGHHH! Why did they show that during the Bible movie? I bet they even had a Catholic Come Home commercial right after it. It's like, even History Channel can find better, more respectful ways to support abortifacient techniques.
There's also the honorable mention of Wal-Mart, Captain Morgan, DirecTV, and a millions Christian Mingle commercials.
And finally, they had a PSA for "No Church Left Behind." Who should be in charge of that but TD Jakes? The same TD Jakes who does not believe the three members of the Trinity co-existed from eternity as 3 persons but one God. He preaches prosperity ministries that always leave people dissatisfied with God. And Roma and Mr. Roma want to continue the Bible TV-series with "experts" like Jakes and Rick Warren. AAAGGGHHH! We have so many good theologians out there such as R.C. Sproul and Voddie Baucham. Why do we need the aforementioned Bozos?
But yeah, it's my Birthday. Read the real Bible and see how fulfilling it really is.
