    Has anyone seen the new movie about the apostle Paul, and if so, was it any good? Christian movies are often cheesy with bad acting, etc. but if it is a pretty good then I will try to find it.

    I would like to know if there are any second commandment violations?

    I haven't personally seen it but I have seen many comments online that say it is fairly good from those who may or may not be christians, to some who say it is completely inaccurate (and those were said by people who seemed to be christians)... I still my go see it just to see for myself.

    I saw it and liked it very much. It was put out by a major studio, Mandelay Bay Pictures, and had good production values. The acting was very good and it was not at all "cheesy." It was a strong reminder of a time when it cost something to be a Christian. "I will not offer the Lord that which costs me nothing," said David. Those early Christians certainly did not do that.

    Don:

    Thanks for that review, which means a good deal coming from you.

    I would not otherwise be minded to see such, but this thread has made it clear that, given all the particulars, it may be worth seeing.

    Peace,
    Alan

    Perhaps it won't be set on earth?!? :scratch:

    On second thought, don't imagine them!

    Regarding The Passion Movie. Here’s a short and good take on it by Rev. Angus Stewart from PRCA. It was a TV interview a few good years ago.

    I believe it’s supposed to be about Christ’s time on earth between his resurrection and ascension.

    I suppose that makes sense. That's not a lot of time to work with, though. One wonders how many Roman Catholic myths will have been included in the script.

    It's interesting that the Church of Ireland bishop completely ignored the stated aims of the filmmakers. That happy ignorance was the response of a lot of Protestants when the film came out.

    I do not think that quite the same concerns need arise with a film about the Apostle Paul. However, I would still be cautious, since there evidently some who will take the opportunity to promote certain unbiblical viewpoints, not to mention egregious violations of the Second Commandment.

    Zach asked about 2nd commandment violations, which is a great question/request. But let me warn my brothers and sisters that's not the only thing you need to be concerned with nor I suspect the greatest thing you need to be concerned with. We often forget about the 3rd commandment.

    As I've thought about the third commandment, I have found that movies that portray the Bible in any fashion distort and fall far short of keeping and honoring God's name and word. This is why I do not watch movies that look at people from the Bible (Esther, Paul, Moses, etc.). I believe it is a breaking of the 3rd commandment.

    What about Cecil B. DeMille's The 10 commandments?

    Actually, that’s a lot more time than the original covered, which mostly took place over just the last few days before and leading up to his crucifixion. And I’m sure you’re right that this one will be just as loaded with RC myths, if not more so.

    My memory must be fading. I saw the original when it first came out, and I seem to remember at least one or two scenes supposedly from Jesus' childhood, and one with him working in carpentry. Maybe those were just flashbacks. In any case, I have no plans to see the film again!

    Yes there were a couple of flashbacks, including one to the time when Jesus apparently invented the dining room table.

    That sounds funny. Why do so many Reformed love these movie though? I know quite a few.
