Let us examine the facts---First,The movie has the same exact people from the mini-series--"The Bible", the same writers, directors, editors, producers, cast--with two exceptions.
Secondly, even though the movie boasts of spectacular special effects, its post-production was done in record time--Why the record time; even odds all they had to do was to slice the character of Satan out and replace him with the new female character, which thanks to computers--even an amateur can do-add a new scene or two and many a Christian Fool believes they are seeing a new movie--so sad--so sad.
THIS BEGS THE QUESTION WHY PAY $10 TO SEE A MOVIE WHEN YOU ALREADY SEEN AND POSSIBLY OWN THE MINI-SERIES? SINCE THE MOVIE CAME IN SECOND AT THE BOX OFFICE on OPENING WEEKEND--MANY MANY SUCKERS WERE CONNED INTO PAY TO SEE A MOVIE THAT THEY HAVE ALREADY SEEN FOR FREE AT HOME and probably own. AS IF--AS IF THAT WAS THE WILL OF GOD--TO TAKE PEOPLE FOR THEIR MONEY.
WHY--OH WHY??? WHEN THERE ARE SO MANY MOVIES OUT THERE THAT ARE ORIGINAL PRODUCTIONS--WHY OH WHY PAY TO SEE A REPEAT???????
AS ROMA DOWNING AND HUSBAND MARK BURNETT ARE AMONG THOSE WHO ARE LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK WITH THESE SUCKERS MONEY--WITH AN AMEN AND GLORY HALILUJIH AS IF THAT WAS THE WILL OF GOD--TO PLAY PEOPLE FOR FOOLS--AS IF IT WAS NOT WRITTEN--FREELY YE HAVE RECEIVED, SO FREELY GIVE.
Ooooops, I forgot, to point out the facts that some of the most non-Christian acts are done by Christians is persecuting them for their Righteousness. After all, the Party line is still the World Hates Us (Christians) as if the world is the in-group and Christians are the Out-Group--As If There are as many Radio Stations dedicated to other religions as there are to the Christian Religion--NOT!!!!! As If There are as many holy men of other faiths preaching on television as Christian Evangelists--NOT!!!!! As if a person of any other faith than Christian has a prayer of being elected into the White House-NOT Yet. But Fear Not--Keep Up This Bullying--and Persecution Will Come as Churches continue to loss more and more members, since not everyone wants to become a 'Bully', nor to embrace INTolerence and Hate.
