Making Good Choices

A few days ago my friend sent me this email and I thought it would be good to post it.



MOVIE ALERT!!!!!

Today, on December 7th, a new movie has been released. It looks cool, and harmless enough, but it is BAD.
It is called "The Golden Compass", and it is against God and the church, and it is atheistic,
and the guy who wrote it said that its purpose is to plant in the hearts of children that there is no God.
We know better, but many others will not.
"The Golden Compass" is the first part of a trilogy, which ends in a boy and a girl "killing God".
The movie was purposefully released at the beginning of the Christmas season, which is Christ's birthday. It is also the exact opposite of "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe", with the opening scene of a 12-year-old girl hiding in a wardrobe and going into a different world.
In this movie demons and witches are the good guys and the church is represented as evil.
It points to The Fall as redemption of mankind, instead of its downfall.

Help let Hollywood know that we will not stand up to this.
Forward this to everyone in your address book.
Hopefully, this boycott might be heard.

"GOLDEN COMPASS" POINTS IN THE WRONG DIRECTION!!!!!!



We need to guard against things like this and avoid them like Paul told Timothy in
1 Timothy 6:20. This movie does point in the wrong direction and the sad thing is that there are alot of other things that point in the wrong direction like bad movies, games, music, ect., that "Christians" are watching, playing, and listening to! Some of the very things we need to guard against!

In James 5:16b it says that "The effective , fervant prayer of a righteous man avails much."

We need to fervantly pray that they won't meet the goals they have for this film, and others like it.

Amen!! What's so horrible is that I'm sure that there were many Christians out there taking their little kids to go see it because it looked like a "good little fairie tale". What a tragedy. We need to open our eyes up to the truth! And we need to shun evil like that which is portrayed in this movie, other movies, common music today, etc.

Thank you for standing up for the truth! The world desperately needs more people like you and your sister.
