Letters: No need for movie Bible study

No need for movie Bible study

A so-called Bible study based upon the movie Son of God makes no sense. Open up the Bible and teach what is written there. “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (1Timothy 3:16-17).

So we do not need a movie to shape how we tell his story. Besides, after viewing the movie The Bible, which was so full of errors and void of theological doctrines, which is understandable since the couple producing the movie believe in a combination of Catholicism and New Ageism. 

Catholics and Baptists are not in agreement with the major themes of the Bible, from salvation, baptism, justification and sanctification. “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness?” (1Corinthians 6:4).

Are the Southern Baptist churches no longer teaching what they have believed for over 100 years? We are called to be true to the word of God and trying to win people to Christ while twisting his word.

Wouldn’t change a thing

If I could be so bold, I can honestly say I wouldn’t want the chance to go back and change anything


First, “the butterfly effect.” How could I be certain I wouldn’t make a worse mistake by changing something? Would I have had the same children, given the immense biological odds against having the two we did get?

Second, if the Lord sets the times and the places where men would live, so they might be drawn close to him, even though he is not far from any of us, shouldn’t I just trust that he has been guiding all along and setting the path knowing my mistakes (sins)?

Maybe I’d be afraid to take a chance, or maybe I’d be trusting the Lord’s path. Whichever, I would pass the opportunity, my brother.
