“Magdalena Released from Shame”—An Agenda of Post-modernism, and More of Today’s Christianity

This movie produced for Campus Crusade for Christ, “Magdalena: Released from Shame,” is disquieting. Actor, Brian Deacon, portrays Jesus, as he did in the “Jesus Film” also released by Campus Crusade and used widely for easy evangelism. Deacon is not a Christian believer according to his bio and he played in a pornographic movie, “Triple Echo,” which Campus Crusade attributes to him, his Hollywood credentials, as presented at the cast link. This is his point of fame according to them.

Movie trailer link that includes bios of the stars: http://magdalenamovie.com/

It is extremely depressing that CCC does not expose Triple Echo’s vile sinfulness nor reprove this man. Instead, they co-star the man.  If CCC was upfront, it would explain the man who portrays Jesus is a porno film star. Triple Echo is about a man who enjoys playing a female role and is sexually promiscuous with a married woman.

Triple Echo or Soldier in Skirts: “Deserting soldier dresses as a woman to escape detection; liking the female role he goes to a dance with another soldier and is exposed. Barton is a soldier in WW2 England; he meets Alice, who is looking after her farm single-handed as her husband is a prisoner of the Japanese. Barton stays overnight and they get friendly, and he decides to desert and stay with Alice. They become lovers (with explicit sex). As a cover, she tells people in the village that her sister is staying with her, and Barton dresses the part. He has mixed feelings about the feminine role but evidently grows accustomed to it. Eventually an army sergeant comes to the farm, and is glad to learn that there are two unattached women there; he has sexual designs on them. Alice rebuffs him and he concentrates on Barton, as “Cathy”. Barton is flattered by the attention, and foolishly agrees to go to a Christmas dance at the army base with the sergeant, obviously not realizing that sexual activity will be involved, despite Alice’s warnings. At the party, Barton realizes what is developing, but can’t escape, and the Sergeant won’t take no for an answer.”

CCC also honors Rebecca Ritz who depicts Mary Magdalena—the actual star of this movie whose photo is set before all others. She is promoted at the CCC site for acting with pornographic actor Tom Cruise. She has played in short sex films, including a 2009 flick entitled “Space Girls.” Her movies are listed at her Hollywood data base page.

Now why would any godly, chaste, modest Christian woman have anything to do with pornographic movies? Nothing in the CCC cast bio reveals her having a walk with Christ, and it would be dead crazy if it did. Both she and Brian Deacon, who are dead in trespasses and sins, simply play Christian parts.

This movie production of Mary Magdalena may stem from the fact that some people claim Mary Magdalene wrote a Gospel: The Gospel according to Mary Magdalene.

http://www.thenazareneway.com/the_gospel_of_mary_magdalene.htm

Here are a few verses from the pseudo writings of Mary Magdalene of dialog following Christ’s death.

Mary Magdalene:
22) The Savior said, All nature, all formations, all creatures exist in and with one another, and they will be resolved again into their own roots.
23) For the nature of matter is resolved into the roots of its own nature alone.
24) He who has ears to hear, let him hear.
25) Peter said to him, Since you have explained everything to us, tell us this also: What is the sin of the world?
26) The Savior said There is no sin, but it is you who make sin when you do the things that are like the nature of adultery, which is called sin.
27) That is why the Good came into your midst, to the essence of every nature in order to restore it to its root.
28) Then He continued and said, That is why you become sick and die, for you are deprived of the one who can heal you.
29) He who has a mind to understand, let him understand.
30) Matter gave birth to a passion that has no equal, which proceeded from something contrary to nature. Then there arises a disturbance in its whole body.
31) That is why I said to you, Be of good courage, and if you are discouraged be encouraged in the presence of the different forms of nature.
32) He who has ears to hear, let him hear.
Peter said to Mary, “Sister, I we know that the Savior loved you more than the rest of women. Tell us the words of the Savior which you remember – which you know (but) we do not, nor have we heard them.” Mary answered and said, “What is hidden from you I will proclaim to you.” And she began to speak to them these words: “I,” she said, ” I saw the Lord in a vision and I said to him, ‘Lord, I saw you today in a vision.’ He answered and said to me, ‘Blessed are you, that you did not waver at the sight of me. For where the mind is, there is the treasure. ‘I said to him, ‘Lord, now does he who sees the vision see it (through) the soul (or) through the spirit?’ The Savior answered and said. ‘He does not see through the soul nor through the spirit, but the mind which [is] between the two – that is [what] sees the vision…”
“Interest in Mary Magdalene, the quasi-legendary woman of the Gospels who stood in an ambiguous relationship to Jesus, is booming just now … Among those unorthodox sources is one of the fragmentary early texts rejected by the church fathers and now called the Gnostic gospels.”
The Bible is complete and no woman, including Mary Magdalene, wrote a Gospel. This is a lie of the Gnostics and others. Such nonsense is promoted in an attempt to prove Mary Magdalene was actually the head apostle and the true New Testament historian, being inspired above the Gospel writers. It is falsely believed she held supremacy in the New Testament church as the only one Christ actually confided in. She is viewed as more important than Peter regarding scripture and ministry. This book about her pseudo gospel, penned in the second to fourth century—http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gnostic_Gospels —is obviously false as Mary would have passed on before the year 100 AD.

This book was published for the purpose of placing women over men as the leaders in the church. Of course, so called, post-modern Bible versions adhere to contemporary thought that blasphemes Scripture, boldly turning truths into lies through fallaciously translating the Hebrew and Greek.

This movie is only akin to The Gospel according of Mary Magdalene in that what takes place in the depiction is according to her account and falsely elevates her position in Christendom. It is the Campus Crusade for Christ gospel according to Mary Magdelena; written, produced and distributed for this questionable organization.

This production presents a lie, as there is no record of Mary Magdalene’s movements outside of the truth of the inerrant Bible. There is nothing stated regarding her after Christ’s ascension. I will add women and men are not to be uplifted and acclaimed, only Jesus Christ who is sinless God!

http://video.pastor.tv/video/Magdelena-Released-From-Shame

Please go to the link above and view the segment of “Mary Magdalena Released From Shame.” The film begins stating Mary’s “narration dramatically and accurately recounts the true story”… The Filming began with an entry set that appears to be in a Jewish village. There is a bit of dialogue that leads to Mary entering a house to explain her gospel account. However, Bible believers know it is never stated in the Word that Mary Magdalene went into a home to explain her story.

Mary proceeds to explain Genesis and the Garden of Eden. Please note, the Bible never states that the rib removed to create woman was taken from Adam’s side to make the woman equal with him. This is not Scripture!! Rebecca Ritz, the actress, lies and states it is Scripture. Lies, Lies Lies!!!! What do you expect from a woman who plays in sexually explicit movies? She cannot stoop any lower so why not do this for a so-called Christian organization.

These words regarding Eve, stated in this movie, were first penned by Matthew Poole (1624-1679) in his English commentary of Genesis 2:21-22 and revised to the exact words of the actress who quoted Matthew Henry who penned his own version of the poem around 1710. Needless to say, we know the words are not Scripture, and they were penned long after the Greek manuscripts of the New Testament were text. These are merely man’s words and man’s interpretation. We must diligently study the Word of God so we are never taken in by satan’s lies and here lies his lies. He is the father of lies; John 8:44.

In the movie clip segment, you view a snake. Please remember the lying snake (satan in this form) probably walked as it was not yet cursed to crawl on its belly; Genesis chapter 3. The snake was most likely an attractive creature to induce Eve. Also no one knows how the fruit appeared. No one knows how Adam and Eve appeared, nor their first loving responses to each other outside of Adam’s recorded words in Scripture—Genesis 2:23.

As I stated, within the film, statements are made regarding its own authenticity. The validity accredited to itself is a lie. For instance, when it comes to smiles and laughter, no one can verify Jesus laughed or smiled nor the disciples as it is not recorded. “God laughs” is only found when it addresses Him laughing at sinners, when His justice arrives upon them—Proverbs 1:26-30 and Psalm 2:1-4. We do know Jesus Christ wept in sorrow and was angry over sin. He did walk in all seriousness while on the earth. He knew many wanted him dead, especially the religious leaders, because he walked in complete righteousness. He had to continually avoid those who desired to trap him in one way or another.

Regarding the woman caught in adultery that can be viewed at the CCC trailer website, the Bible does not say that Mary Magdalene asked, “Where is the man?” Of course, both man and woman were to be stoned by the law, but this is not stated in any Gospel nor does any Gospel author record that Mary Madeline was present during this incident. She was present during some of Christ’s ministry (Luke 8:1-3), but we do not know if she was present at this particular time.

In addition, the Bible states seven demons were cast out of Mary Magdalene (Luke chapter 8). We do not have any idea how this occurred or any circumstance involved outside of the fact she was a sinner set free by Christ. The movie makes a dramatic presentation that arises from the mind of men and is not Scriptural.

 Remember the movie states everything in it, is Scriptural fact.

“Go and sin no more” was omitted from the trailer excerpt. Very Sad! I do not know if it was deleted from the movie itself.

It is important that we know the inerrant Word of God, Old and New Testament, well enough to know the facts of the law, and the specifics of occurring events in both Testaments. We are commanded to “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workmen that need not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth”—2 Timothy 2:15. We can never study to the point of knowing too much.

We cannot add or subtract from Scripture, being in fear of being cursed for doing so. “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, if any preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ”—Galatians 1:6-12.

Here is another incident of addition to Scripture in the movie: Brian Deacon, the Hollywood Jesus, puts a veil over the head of Mary Magdalene. This is not in the Bible! Unfortunately, people now speak of this as something that actually occurred. This should place fear of the judgement of God in the hearts of those who are showing and distributing this movie.

The LORD Jesus must weep deeply over this vileness performed in His name. The end never justifies the means though people may say, “many have been saved through viewing the movie.” But have they been saved unto a false gospel?

People are to be saved through the preaching of the Word by Spirit-filled men who meet all the qualifications of godliness as stated in the books of Timothy, Titus and elsewhere. They are to be above reproach in every way! We know this movie does not involve people being above reproach. This movie is not presented by those who do not want to preserve the untarnished Word of God.

Christians are not to hide behind a Hollywood movie screen of vile actors. This is the lazy Christian’s out. Believers are to forthrightly proclaim the Gospel.

I might also add that Mary Magdalene is uplifted by the Catholic Church in idolatry. She is a false saint that is prayed to. At the sites below, you can view prayers for the Catholic Church to pray to Saint Mary Magdalene: http://www.ewtn.com/devotionals/prayers/mag.htm

http://www.catholicculture.org/culture/liturgicalyear/prayers/view.cfm?id=1095

(Reported in the July 1991, CIB Bulletin, p. 2.)”
“When the FEA’s Foundation editor, M.H. Reynolds, asked Bill Bright (original founder and president of Campus Crusade for Christ) how he could Scripturally justify having Roman Catholics on CCC’s staff and working with them in evangelism, Bright replied, ‘I can work with anyone who calls Jesus Lord.’ Mormons, Moonies, and many other cults also call Jesus Lord but like the Catholics they follow a different false Christ. The Bible warns of many false christs. (Reported in the July 1991, CIB Bulletin, p. 2.)”

I do not think it is by accident that in the movie and in promotional photos, the headdresses, at times, resemble a nun’s habit—the band around the head to cover all the hair and a headscarf atop.

Campus Crusade has joined hands with gays and lesbians—An Unlikely Gay-Straight Alliance:

 http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2009/januaryweb-only/102-22.0.html

“Campus Crusade for Christ International, wants to launch an HIV/AIDS outreach with a campus gay-lesbian group … What we wanted to do is find common ground where we can serve along side with them …”

Jesus Film by Campus Crusade alters verses and facts

And appears to conform to the woman’s lib agenda

Porno actor, Brian Deacon, plays Jesus

Some of the below is quoted from “Biblical Discernment Ministries”

Much license is taken with Luke’s Gospel in this Jesus movie. Words are removed from a man’s mouth and put into a woman’s or girl’s. In Scripture, when a certain lawyer tested Jesus, asking what he must do to inherit eternal life, he asked, “And who is my neighbor?” In the movie, a woman asks the question. After Jesus gave the example of the Good Samaritan and asked, “Which now of these three thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves,” the lawyer answered, “He that shewed mercy on him.” In the movie, a little girl provides the answer.

“Luke 3:17 is chopped in half, allowing for the wheat to be gathered into the barn, but omitting the chaff being burned with unquenchable fire. Also, the word ‘sin’ is only found when it is being forgiven, such as Jesus forgiving the woman of sin at the Pharisee’s house (Luke 7:48); never when it is being condemned. Areas that truly convict of sin are omitted.”

Jesus is depicted kissing the scroll of Isaiah. This is not recorded in Luke 4! How crazy! This is another lie—adding to the Scriptures. Why would Jesus who is God and the One who relayed the entire Bible to man, kiss a scroll? This again is adding to the inerrant Word of God!

 Luke 9:13 states, “And they (the disciples) said, “We have no more but five loves and two fishes; except we should go and buy meat for all this people.” In the movie, a woman says, “But we only have five loaves and two fish.”

People have the audacity to create a false gospel in no fear of God’s curse.

Sadly, Beth Moore is now involved in demonism through the contemplative prayer movement that stems from Hinduism and Catholicism:
http://www.lighthousetrailsresearch.com/bestilldvd.htm

More info on this movement:
http://www.ourladyswarriors.org/dissent/centerprayer.htm

http://www.ecatholic2000.com/pray/prayer2.shtml

What basically is involved is copied from a contemplative informative website:

1.Choose a sacred word as the symbol of your intention to consent to God’s presence and action within. Examples: God, Jesus, Abba, Father, Mother, Mary, Amen. Other possibilities: Love, Peace, Mercy, Listen, Let Go, Silence, Stillness, Faith, Trust, Yes.

2. Sitting comfortably and with eyes closed, settle briefly and silently introduce the sacred word as the symbol of your consent to God’s presence and action within.

3. When engaged with your thoughts*, return ever-so gently to the sacred word.

4. At the end of the prayer period, remain in silence with eyes closed for a couple of minutes. [*Thoughts include body sensations, feelings, images, and reflections]

______________

I must ask who is teaching people to simply pray the prayers of Scripture such as Colossians 1:9-12, Ephesians 1:16-19, Philippians 1:9, Psalm 51 and 19, etc? We can read through the Bible and pray for the godly attributes stated to be made part of our lives and the lives of others. Jesus stated to his disciples if they asked anything of the Father in Jesus’ name, He would answer in the affirmative. (John 15:16) True believers know if we ask for anything within His will, that being according to Scripture, and with hearts pure before Him, He will answer; 1 John 5:13-15, James chapter 4, etc. God does not want the prayer of believers to be silly, complicated, designed by man, nor demonic.
_______________

The book of Micah states, “The godly person has perished from the land, and there is no upright person among men.” Most Christians are bent on justifying some sort of evil today, which makes the upright of heart to be few in number.

Jesus took a whip to drive out the money changers who employed a place of prayer to earn money. True believers should desire that His church be purified by His hand of discipline no matter how it may pain us.

In Him who patiently waits for His church to repent,

Dr. J. Budziszewski (of Focus on the Family)—Lied To Me

© Val J. Lee

Catholic gold wall of idolatry in cathedral in Spain 

Gigantic Catholic monstrosities display idolatrous, extravagant wealth that implores people to worship what has been crafted by man’s hands. 1 Peter 1:18-19 reminds true believers, they were not redeemed with corruptible things like silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ—their sacrificial Lamb.  (1 John 5:10-13—the Bible) Please link: Paradise
 

Dear Readers,

This posting is regarding renowned author, Dr. J. Budziszewski, and his deceitful comments written to me: https://vallee7.wordpress.com/about/#comments. He is highly respected by the organization, Focus on the Family, and they publish his column: “Ask Theophilus.” Dr. Budziszewski is also a frequent speaker to groups such as InterVarsity, Campus Crusade, and the Veritas Forum. He resides in Austin, Texas, with his wife, Sandra.  http://www.amazon.com/Ask-Me-Anything-Provocative-Students/dp/product-description/1576836509

He forthrightly lies concerning his involvement in the New Age religion.  He is a Catholic, one who worships foreign deities, including the false Mary of the Catholic Church. This all goes along with the Catholic Church’s mysticism (magical endeavors), as you can read for yourself at Wikipedia, Catholic Encyclopedia, etc. God declares idolaters are kept out of heaven—Revelation 21:8, 22:15, 1 Corinthians 6:9, etc.

I contacted Focus on the Family regarding this idolatrous man of deception. Unfortunately, I received no response. I am not surprised, knowing Dr. Dobson was featured on the cover of a Catholic magazine that promoted Mary worship. He once placed Mother Teresa’s photo on the cover of Clubhouse Magazine; she was glorified as a role model for children. She forthrightly worshipped Mary and other idolatrous false deities. The magazine never warned children that idolators are kept out of heaven.

 Truth Project:

The Vilest of the Vilest is paraded on the Truth Project video series, produced by Focus on the Family. I refer to Roman Catholic Priest, Robert Sirico, who In 1975, performed the first civil-licensed same-sex marriage in Denver Colorado. Yes, this man is presented in the Truth Project.

Roman Catholic Report:

Father Robert A. Sirico was born on 23 June 1951, in Brooklyn, N.Y. in 1972.
 
Sirico established a different kind of ‘church’ – a satellite of the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Church (UFMCC) founded by homosexual activist Rev. Troy Perry in Los Angeles in 1968. The UFMCC teaches that homosexuality is neither a sin nor a sickness and that “homosexual relationships should be celebrated and affirmed.” The UFMCC has been used as a battering ram against the Roman Catholic Church and Protestant sects who oppose homosexuality.”
 
In 1975, Rev. Sirico moved to Los Angeles and became the Executive Director of the Los Angeles Gay Community Center, one of the oldest and largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) organizations in the world. He also continued his work as a minister of the UFMCC.
 
One year later, on 12 April 1976, Rev. Sirico, dressed in a black clerical suit with a Roman collar made the pages of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer under the headline “‘Male Slave Mart’ Raid in L.A. Called a Mistake. ” As reported by the Seattle  P-I, on April 10, 1976, Los Angeles policemen dressed in riot gear arrested 40 persons participating in a homosexual “slave market” held at the Mark IV Health Club in Hollywood. The bathhouse was operated by a sadomasochist cult called the Leather Fraternity. Nude “male slaves” were led on stage by an auctioneer and inspected by potential buyers. “Slaves” went for $10-75. The undercover policeman at the auction told the press that he picked up a man for $16 following assurances from the auctioneer that the ‘volunteer for charity’ would perform specific sex acts on him. The auction room came complete with its own dungeons and cell blocks and sadomasochist apparatus including leather harness restraints and chains.
 
______

Sirico is a diabolical priest, who is a homosexual promoting idolator, a man who adhere’s to “another gospel” the false gospel of Mary and other idols. We are to separate ourselves from the false teachers! 2 Peter chapter 3, the book of Jude, etc.

Beware of the Truth Project as it holds errors and false teachers. R C Sproul is promoting this series. He is a Calvinist. One who believes the church was replaced Israel.  Another true danger sign regarding this series is the fact, Dr. Del Tackett, the focal teacher, is also a Calvinist! Calvinists adhere to many demonic lies.

To follow John Calvin, you have to approve of every evil thing. Calvin denied Christ, stating man would defeat and bind Satan not Jesus Christ, on the tree of crucifixion, in his Genesis chapter 3 commentary. To convince others that mankind is bringing in the kingdom today or that we are living in the kingdom age, every evil way has to be approved. (They do believe satan is bound at this time.) Calvinists are people of deception who deny the books of Revelation, Zechariah, and portions of the Old and New Testaments. They do no believe in an omniscient God who knows all and who has always known all; and never has had to rewrite Scripture to please Calvinists.

Zechariah 12:7-10 is one Scripture passage that exposes the folly of their lies. It declares Jesus Christ will destroy all the enemies of Israel and will glorify this nation, and the Jews will look upon Him whom they pierced. No one can legitimately separate these Zechariah verses.

In this series, people are encouraged to read Calvinistic/Preterist writings.

______

Another aspect of this video series that troubles my heart is viewed in the advertisement, an art depiction of Eve in the nude. God warns in Jeremiah regarding the wickedness of those who no longer know how to blush. Jeremiah 6:15 declares that God’s judgment was to fall on those of loathsome conduct, those who no longer knew how to blush. Nude artworks have always been part of the pagan way, but never of true Christianity, nor present with the righteous, ancient Hebrews.

God commands that women be covered in shamefacedness, and not their bareness exposed in any form. Christianity includes admonishments in prudishness and chastity. The LORD wants His daughters dressed modestly so men are not tempted to sin through their thoughts or desires via women’s short, low or tight dressing. I know that decades ago, people would have been completely shocked to see a presentation with a depiction of a bare woman in the church.

______

Also within this video series the terms “postmodernism” and  “world view” are promoted. I must ask what does postmodernism and our world view have to do with Jesus Christ who never changes and has nothing in common with this sinful world and its hip terms? One insightful person wrote regarding the Truth Project: “The Gospel of Jesus Christ is replaced by the World View.”  This world is a graveyard of death and sin, its only hope is Jesus Christ who will come again and rule from Jerusalem after he has murdered all His enemies; Revelation chapter 19.

Of course, we need to take every opportunity to witness to others so that they might be saved and be delivered from the Lake of Fire.

~

I must add, Focus on the Family clarifies its part in the New Spirituality religion. It has little or no disputes with the demonic Harry Potter book series and movies, and other satanic movies.

Furthermore, this organization uplifts movies with nudity, along with every other vile way: http://www.pluggedin.com/movies/intheaters/lawless.aspx

This Lawless movie review link does provide some warnings; though the main thrust is approval if you choose to view it. Focus on the Family spokespeople certainly would not condemn you since one or more of the staff viewed it. Its upper main red “CAUTION” box regards it not being appropriate for children. You can read, the viewer warning is not for teens and adults, just for children.

In the main section of the summary, that most will only read, there is no warning regarding sexual vileness.  It is not explained until one scrolls down past the listed “Positive Elements.” Not till you scroll toward the bottom, do you find any negative comments regarding this flick.

Focus on the Family forthrightly speaks of the nudity and sex in this movie with pornographic words to explain every detail. No Christians should put such words before their eyes. And I do not recommend the reading of this section. This is one website that I never desire to revisit!

Focus on the Family does not expose the sexual content as outright sin nor the mobster murders and bootlegging—the main thrust of this movie.

Review quote …  “all this movie has to sell, really, is star power, depression-era texture and bare-knuckle grit. And it’s got overflowing vats of each. The sets and scenery look realistic enough to almost beg for a sepia tone camera filter. And the actors deliver theatrical flair aplenty, from Tom Hardy’s grunting bootleg brother to Jessica Chastain’s looking-for-a-better-life ex-feather dancer to Guy Pearce’s fastidious but viscous special agent.”

Of course, no one should have viewed this R rated movie, knowing they would be deliberately placing wickedness before their eyes. Obviously, the viewer analyst, did not walk out of the theater when evil appeared on the screen. Plus, why would Focus on the Family critique a movie with an R rating, if they believed no Christian would dare desire to watch a movie with this rating?

You can see Focus on the Family is totally void of the Holy Spirit, totally carnal and Hollywood minded. Why would any righteous person want to promote this movie in the slightest way? How could any believer want others to place this evil before their eyes? God does not desire we deliberately place any evil before our eyes. He wants our minds clean! He wants this sin preached against powerfully! We are to be rejoicing in those things that teach total moral uprightness.

God commands in Philippians 4:8 that we dwell on that which is pure and virtuous. This creates mental healthiness. We must also dwell on the true, and Hollywood does not teach the true. And the true-to-life portrayals are only based on some truth; all Hollywood story lines are placed on a screen with all glorification, in choreography perfection. It is not reality nor can it represent the total reality that once was.

Hollywood is of the sensual, the fruit of the flesh, not the teachings of the inerrant Word of God.

______

I once addressed my concerns to Focus on the Family regarding their advertisement of the criminal and pornographic movie, “Cool Hand Luke,” several years ago. This promotional was placed in our church bulletin! They had recommended it as a movie that fathers and young sons should view together. Someone from this organization did respond to my concern; however, I do not believe they perceived it as being publicized in error. It is difficult to comprehend that they discerned this movie as Biblically pure and honoring to the LORD Jesus Christ.

Hollywood is owned by satan; yet, Focus on the Family, advertises for Hollywood. Only God knows their motivation, though a money aspect would not surprise me.

It is unbelievable that a Christian organization would advertise satan’s realm. Obviously, very nasty people work for Focus on the Family.

We are to come out from amongst the unsaved and their notorious ways, and be separate—2 Corinthians 6:14f.

An apostate age surrounds true believers. Matthew 7:21-23 teaches that many will come in Christ’s name saying we have done this and that in the way of ministry. Christ will respond with that fact He never knew them, because they were of the way of iniquity or sin—meaning they did not follow the paths of purity, innocence, holiness, righteousness, etc. They are the participants in wicked promoting!
