    I did not know OT Hebrew was spoken with an English accent.

    And no wonder Pharaoh was so warped against the Hebrews; look at the way he had to dress as a child. And the haircut, makeup, and eye brows? Maybe this is where J Edgar Hoover got his cross-dressing motivations.

    One thing I will say is the cinematography was nothing short of outstanding. Some scenics were so crisp they looked like 3D. The rock textures were very vivid.

    btw, felt like mentioning this since a lot of churches in my town are falling over themselves to support this

    this tweet from a seeker-driven pastor in my town of Omaha (aka a magnet of bizarre pastors for some reason) I felt like sharing:

    (Pastor Mark Chitwood btw is the Pastor of StoneBridge Christian Church of Omaha Nebraska (a church that is part of the very controversial and watering down Christianity group called the Willow Creek Association movement)



    I totally love the fact that angels are ninjas and not harp playing wimps. #thebible


    this is same pastor of the church mentioned at

    The Museum of Idolatry: Pastors in Tights



    maybe we should be lucky that angels are Ninjas and not dressed up as Seeker League folks at

    are we surprised at this btw?


    Jim Wallis produces commentaries for “The Bible”

    Roma Downey and Mark Burnett have asked a number of theologians to help consult and promote their miniseries, The Bible. These “experts” are well known for Scripture twisting and presenting a false gospel to millions of sheep. Along with high-profile names like Rick Warren, Joel Osteen and T.D. Jakes tied to the project, we’ve learned leftist activist Jim Wallis was also asked by Roma and Mark to weigh in on accuracy and even produce commentary video clips to air on The Bible website.

    As Wallis explains on his Sojourners Blog,

    What won me over to the whole series was the clip about Jesus meeting Peter, the fisherman. In a Washington, D.C., premiere of “The Bible” series a few weeks ago, I had wonderful conversations with Mark and Roma. Mark asked me if they were right to have Jesus say that he wanted to change the world. Those words are not literally in the scriptures, but it seemed to him and Roma that’s exactly what Jesus was talking about. Absolutely correct, I told them both. And we went through the first few chapters of Mathew which demonstrate that truth. I love the clarity and courage of the statement from Jesus in “The Bible.”

    Yes, I thought of Wallis immediately when I heard the line he is referring to: “What are we going to do,” Peter asks Jesus. “Change the world,” Jesus of The Bible replies.

    That’s what we are going to do: change the world. Not just to save a few people from hell and get them to heaven, not to judge all the non-Christians, not to abandon the earth for mansions in the hereafter, not to make sure we all believe the right doctrinal things … No, Jesus came to change the world and us with it. To join him is to join the changing of the world with the in-breaking of a new order called the kingdom of God.

    What else did Wallis love about the miniseries? Yesterday we reported that a glaring omission to the Last Supper scene was left out. It is the part where Jesus says, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6. The words, “for the forgiveness of sins” is also missing, as are “broken for you,” and “shed for you.”

    But Wallis sees this scene, not as a declaration of His divinity, but as a guy who is saying goodbye to his friends around a dinner table. He says he likes the idea of a fellowship table rather than an altar:

    Notice that Wallis doesn’t connect the Passover meal, or the fact that Jesus is the perfect sacrificial Passover Lamb, to this scene. Instead it’s just a regular dinner, more of a friendly meal for fellowship and conversation. A place to plan how we can change the world.

    Saying “No” to promoting blasphemous “The Bible” docudrama

    As we head into the Easter weekend and Resurrection Sunday,

    we are talking today about the resurrection of Jesus from the grave, and what the “old rugged cross” means to the Bride of Christ and to the world who does not know Him.

    We’re going to begin with what is becoming a controversial topic these past few weeks. Many of you are watching the History Channel’s docudrama,

    “The Bible,” produced by actress Roma Downey and her husband Mark Burnett.

    Overseeing the content and promoting this show are celebrity pastors Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, T.D. Jakes, Jim Wallis and many others.

    When a public relations group from the History Channel contacted our guest to help promote the show, she was able to preview the docudrama and gave them a surprising answer: No!

    We first told you about Sunny Shell last week when we shared her blog article about how she came to that decision. You can read about it on our site, in a link titled,

    Something HUGE is missing from the Last Supper!

    We have Sunny with us in our first segment. She is a wife, mom and writer and founder of a ministry called Abandoned to Christ over at sunnyshell.org. You can also find her writings at My Second Love: A Proverbs 31 Study. Sunny is a former columnist for Examiner.com with two columns: Christian Worldview and Christian Marriage.

    Did “The Bible” Series Help or Hurt Biblical Christianity? | Stand Up for the Truth

    Did “The Bible” Series Help or Hurt Biblical Christianity?

    Last night the final installment of The Bible miniseries appeared on The History Channel.

    Now that I have completed viewing it I would like to give you my overall thoughts.

    The series was filmed with spectacular imagery.

    Obviously the producers spent a lot of money to present a visually appealing movie. They are to be commended for putting a lot of resources into the project.

    Regarding the quality and accuracy of what they produced, many Christians were turned off for a variety of reasons.

    Scenes with ninja Angels, sloppiness with issues like Abraham’s near sacrifice of Isaac and others caused many to just not like the series.

    But on the whole was the series a good or bad thing?

    God is more than capable of accomplishing His purpose in spite of the weaknesses of man.

    And hopefully some people that watched the series will feel led to explore the Bible and Christianity.

    My hope and prayer is that they will seek a Bible teaching church where they can learn the complete story of man’s sinful nature and God loving us so much He sent His only begotten Son to provide a way for eternal salvation.

    My concern is that some will think just because they watched the series that they now have a sufficient understanding of God and will just go on living like they have.

    The series had some very serious flaws. Mary Magdellen was exalted as one of the apostles—in fact she was presented as the apostle with unshakable faith, even though we know little of her from the Bible after the resurrection of Jesus.

    And the movie showed the curtain of the temple being displaced instead of torn in two, which signifies that God removed the barrier separating Himself from man.

    But I think most importantly, the movie failed to show the one truth we must come to know about Jesus Christ.

    The series portrays him accurately as The Son of God who shows immeasurable love and mercy to the most sinful of men; but it stopped short of presenting His complete nature and character.

    Jesus does indeed offer eternal hope to all men through His death and resurrection.

    Our true faith in Him gives us the assurance of eternal life with Him.

    But with that faith comes a call for true repentance—and a turning away from our sinful nature, leading us to a life of holiness by the power of the Holy Spirit.

    When He appeared to John at Patmos in the movie, His message was basically “I will return and usher in a world of peace”. This again is an incomplete message.

    When Jesus returns He comes to judge all men—and sadly the Bible tells us all who rejected Him will be condemned to a real, permanent hell where they will suffer for eternity.

    So first He comes as the gentle sacrificial lamb symbolized by Passover.

    But when He returns He is hardly gentle—he returns to judge the wicked that have rejected Him.

    I sincerely hope many who watched the series will be inspired to actually read the Bible and seek a Bible teaching church.

    That hope is tempered with the concern that the series will reinforce the false beliefs of lukewarm Christians who are coming to believe Jesus is all about love and judges no one.

    The false belief that on that cross Jesus saved every man from eternal damnation—instead of the fact that Jesus saved every man who confesses Him as savior and Lord.

    See, to accept the “savior Jesus” without accepting the “Lord Jesus” is not true Christianity—it is a false Christianity and one where Satan has us right where he wants us:

    Thinking we can continue to live in the flesh and still have eternal life.

    Is Jesus your savior? Or is He your Lord and Savior?

    That distinction makes all the difference in the world—both this world and the one to come.
