Kudos to the Kendrick Brothers for War Room Movie

Movies, as we know them today, are mostly about violence, crime, drugs, super powers, romance, sex and so on. If only adults were the only ones that have access to the movies that have these negative tendencies of today’s entertainment scene, then, it will be understandable. The reality is that kids are not left out too – cartoons today, are bloodier than ever.

Many parents are not even aware that some of cartoons their children and wards watch are full of negative sublime messages targeted at distorting their Children’s way of reasoning. Well, that is a matter for another day.

My mission with today’s post is to say a big kudos to the Kendrick brothers for choosing to remain a shinning light in a dark world by spreading the good news of Jesus Christ through movies.

Here I was, at a prayer meeting, and my church member whispered; “have you seen War Room?” I responded, “No”, and he said to me, “you need to go watch the movie and not just watch it, keep it for your entire family because of its timeless message”.

I actually assured myself that it will just be like any other movie, as I did not realize what he was driving at until I eventually watched the movie after he troubled me a few more times to watch it.

Frankly, War Room is a super-interesting and inspirational movie that freely talks about one of God’s greatest gifts to mankind, which is the ability to commune with Him through prayers.

I am glad I saw that movie and it left a clear picture in my mind that when it is time to design my dream home, I will certainly have a special place called the ‘War Room’!

Go see the movie, War Room please, and know that prayer works.

Kudos to the Kendrick Brothers for War Room Movie!

Exodus: Gods and Kings: a lie against the Bible

Sometimes I wonder why Hollywood delights in down playing the role of God in a certain areas of life, trying to upturn his word and decree. I am not big on movies but I get to relax my Medulla oblongata 🙂 (whatever that means) by watching them every now and then, based on Brian Tracy’s advice for folks like us who do a lot of brain tasking jobs.

So I got to watch the $140,000,000 blockbuster movie titled Exodus, Gods and Kings – the movie that sought to actionize the deliverance of the children of Israel from the grips of the Egyptians. I personally have no qualms with the new ideas brought into the movie but I take exception to the fact that certain miracles performed by God were portrayed to be nothing but “natural occurrences” which of course is hugely misleading.

I honestly can’t do justice to this topic better than David Criswell, Ph.D., who wrote a fantastic, objective review of the movie that you can read here.

The Bible records and I believe that God performed a number of miracles such as the plagues and most importantly the parting of the the red sea. Exodus 14 talks clearly of how the children of Israel walked across the sea:

26 And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen.

27 And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the Lord overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea.

28 And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them.

29 But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.

The movie is interesting to watch but obviously tried to water down the teachings of the bible. I understand that the producer is an agnostic so you would understand why.

I belong to the class of those who believe in an Almighty God who created the world and sent his only begotten son Jesus Christ to die for our sins. I also believe in the totality of the bible – written by men under the inspiration of the holy spirit.
