Hello...A professor recently sent me the following link about a movie that will be released in the United States on September 15th. It's entitled "Jesus Camp," and it is a documentary about evangelical camps for the "indoctrination" of children. I imagine that the film will probably more or less expose the "dangers" of such camps and the ideology and practice that they promote in children. Anyway, I looked up some of the information on Google, and it looks like it will certainly ruffle some feathers of certain believers. Here is the link to the movie trailer that the professor sent to me, as well as a review by the New York Times.[url=http://www.apple.com/trailers/magnolia/jesuscamp/trailer/]Quicktime trailer for "Jesus Camp"[/url][url=http://movies2.nytimes.com/gst/movies/movie.html?v_id=342517]New York Times review of "Jesus Camp"[/url][url=http://www.jesuscampthemovie.com/]"Jesus Camp" Official Movie Site[/url]As a young teen, I was saved at a Christian Youth Camp. However, it was a small independent camp -- without any sort of denominational or ideological emphasis. The Church that "rented" the camp would control the services during that week. Actually, I met the Lord late one night while walking [u]outside[/u] in a field (and not inside of an actual meeting). It might be interesting to see how some of the mega-churches or certain evangelical/pentecostal/charismatic denominations or fellowships differ in such camps. :-)
I imagine that the film will probably more or less expose the "dangers" of such camps and the ideology and practice that they promote in children.

This movie is featuring some "hyper" charismatic groups and their practices, to say whether its good or not is not my decision but obviously the spirit of the world doesn't mind displaying it before men so it must be something that will bring disbelief and questioning to the faith of Jesus Christ.
I overheard someone at a restaurant say that they would never vote for a person that believes in God. They were so worried that an "extremist" would overturn their precious abortion and homosexual "rights" that they would prefer an athiest.
