Our True Compass

Let The Bible Be Our Compass- Not Hollywood
The "Son Of God" movie was released on February 28th and we have decided to avoid it, for all the reasons mentioned in the original article. Just the
other night, my Mom asked me if we knew anything about a new "God" movie. After I spewed out why she should avoid it. She responded with how people can easily take out the parts that aren't in the Bible, no biggie. Her choice of course. Maybe she'll tell us if she see's it, I'd be curious to know what she thinks.
This is the very reason why we are trying to warn others, so those who do go and leave do not leave unquestioning any of it, embracing it as proper doctrine. We must always use the Bible as our compass. Nothing and no one but God's Word can off  His unchanging Truth. We must do all God warns us about helping little ones or young believers from stumbling, falling into deception.
[Mar 9:42 KJV] 42 And whosoever shall offend one of [these] little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea. 
Considering the names of the "Christians" who are endorsing it. It really does infuriate me, in fact the more I read the detailed reviews from believers, the more my blood boils as I picture the many attending the theatres,  because their church or pastor encouraged them to watch it, or a well known Christian organization gave them tickets, so therefore, it must be biblically a-okay- no questions asked.
More and more, the statistics sadly show, that even Christians hardly read their Bible. If we aren't familiar what God's Word says, then we are super susceptible to deception. It is how Satan's spiritual war against the world goes. Create teachings, movies, programs, Bible translations, and such that contain say, 90 percent fiction, and offer 10 percent Truth and voila, you have a recipe that will appeal to millions. Even when the Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormon's come to our door and we say, "No thanks, I am a Christian," they say, "So am I," and because they said they are a Christian - some will let them into their home and then if they don't know their Scriptures well enough, their false teachings into there hearts. [1 Peter 5:8 KJV] 8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
[2 Corinhians 11:3-4, 13-14 KJV] 3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or [if] ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with [him]. ... 13 For such [are] false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

We are aware there are other hollywood movies coming out such as "Noah," but they are not being promoted by actual Christians and Christian organizations like the "Son Of God," movie is. If this we chalk this up to just another "hollywoodized" bible movie, full of errors and assumptions - take it or leave it.  The minute the Christian community starts endorsing it as "biblical" and good to see, then we will definitely take issue. There is am organization that has actually made a movie to "counter" the "Noah," movie. If you are interested, click below to watch the video.

Back to the"S.O.G." movie and sharing a review by a Christian who saw the production. Thanks to "Abandoned To Christ blog" they affirmed in their article called "'Son of God' Is Most Certainly Not The Son Of God." the very issues that we were concerned about without having  seen it...
  • Excerpts taken from Abandoned to Christ Blog - click to read full article, it is well worth reading..."Last year I was contacted by a media group for The History Channel. They emailed me requesting my help in promoting their upcoming 10-episode miniseries called "The Bible". After reviewing their material, Bible studies based on the series, and clips of every episode, I responded kindly telling them that due to the unbiblical nature of the series, I was unable to help promote it. After watching the entire miniseries I wrote and published my review and I haven't heard from them since."

  • "If someone called to you, suggesting that you come out of your comfortable home to take you to a more comfortable and elegant home, you may think they're nice, but you wouldn't consider this to be great news or even an impossibly generous gift. Which is the essential message of this film. But if you were in a burning inferno and someone called to you with instructions on how to be saved from a horribly painful and terrifying death, you would consider this person a great savior with the greatest news you've ever heard, and you would listen to him. This is the Gospel—the true Good News of Jesus Christ.

    The truth is, we're all in the burning and destructive inferno of our sins until we are washed by the pure and precious blood of Jesus. We are all covered with the ash of our sins until we are baptized into Christ and made new creations, with new hearts and new minds; no longer darkened and depraved but enlightened by the Gospel and credited with the righteousness of Christ.

    There is no evidence of this glorious truth anywhere in this movie. There is no evidence of God's authority, righteousness or saving and powerful love that continually conforms us into the likeness of Christ."
