[img]https://www.sermonindex.net/images/forum/2004/may/featured_news.gif[/img]A movie whose purpose is to prove that Jesus Christ never existed and that demonizes Christian fundamentalists is scheduled to open on June 6, 2006 that is, 06-06-06, the "666" biblical mark of the Beast. Directed by Brian Flemming, who is described on the film's website as a "former fundamentalist Christian," "The Beast" promises to spread the theory he claims is "gaining credibility among scholars" that Jesus was made up out of thin air. "The authors of the Gospels, writing 40 to 90 years after the supposed life of Christ, never intended for their works to be read as biographies. There are no credible non-Christian references to Christ during the period in which he is said to have lived," states the film's site. Currently in pre-production, the film's cast and crew are "legally sworn to secrecy," the promotional site says. On the trailer, which is viewable on the film's site, ominous music plays while these words flash across the screen: "Centuries ago, a legend was invented
gave it the power to dominate the world." The words are displayed on a background of a painting of Christ's face.

Well, here we just see the fiery with which our enemy is coming down on us christians in these last days!! I believe it will get much more difficult for us christians here on earth before our Lord comes!! But to see all these things happen all around us should let us lift our eyes up to heaven, expecting our Lord and Christ on the clouds!! Let us then now al the better run this race with our eyes and hearts on Jesus, as our enemy is to strong for us and we can only concur with Jesus!Love in ChristJanus
Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will: The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds: But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel. What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice. (Phi 1:15-18 KJV)I have to admit that I sometimes struggle to share Paul's reactions recorded above, but in that ...When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him. (Isa 59:19 KJV) I have to admit to a certain 'tingle' at the prospect of the battle.
