  1. Anyone who is open to hard christian rock listen up! Kutless Rocks! nuf said! Shalom! 8)
  2. Can any one tell me how a man who can write such great sci-fi and produce so much literature could get his own religion and herd so many down the metaphysical sewage highway? It just seems to me such talent could have made him famous and not derided so much? "Battlefield Earth", what a great work. Oy, if I could write like that I could write like that! I guess being American means you have the freedom to create your own religion but Oy Gvalt! What a mess! What a great writer. I just could never buy into the cult thing. Shalom! 8)
  3. Nu, I'm still waiting for an awesome movie depicting what Y'shua did from the cross to His ascending into the clouds to be seated at the Ha'Gvurah.(seat of power in G-ds Throne) Since we are required not to have idols like crucifixes, dolls, stars, flags(religious) statues and so forth I think an empty tomb would be a novelty worth seeing. After all, it may be difficult to fit one on your dash or hang it from your rear view mirror? :wink: Anyhoo, any movies you know about that focus on that topic? E.W. Kinyons Book "What Happened From The Cross To The Throne" I think would make a great movie.Shmooze, shmooze, yakety-yak. Shalom!

    The test The Recording Angel needed two new Executive Assistants to help him in the admissions office in Heaven. G-d sent him 3 applicants and the Angel began interviewing them immediately.

    8O The promise Shlomo and his wife Sarah are lying in bed one night when Shlomo sidles over to her side of the bed and whispers in her ear, "I'm going to make you the happiest woman in the world." Sarah says, "I'll miss you." :wink:

    Mike_H asked if orthodoxy would find the stoning sequence blasphemy?In my zeal for the law in the past I may have been bothered or even a little angered by the complete disregard for the sanctity of the Torah so, yes, most true orthodoxy would be offended. However, seeing as the entire life of the messiah is held in low esteem and somewhat regarded as a naughty sub-religion out of Judaism, you know, the red headed step child that you are responsible for but really don't care for? That would be a fair position to begin to judge from. Take Mel Brookes for example: His portrayal of the catholic inquisition in the "History of The World" may offend catholics but most I know find that seqeunce hilarious. Here's a yiddish director poking fun at the ignorance of the "church" in its past. Did I rise to think about labeling it blasphemy? No, since Mel Brookes is neither qualified nor would care to represent christianity at all. He's a movie maker.(and one I can't help but admire) I guess what I'm trying to say is that Orthodoxy won't waiste valuable thought processes on trying to judge some one who in the first place is neither qualified or noted as an authority on Torah, The writings, or any of the fundamentals of Judaism. See? Its like asking the gas attendant for advice on rebuilding your engine. You probably wouldn't ask him, you'd find a certified mechanic, therefore: Anything the gas attendant says can be taken with a large grain of salt or even dismissed. Nu, no-one mentioned the aliens that picked up Brian. Too funny! Shalom!

    I believe my favorite bit from the movie was the women dressed as men stoning the condemned man. I think this speaks to us as believers in oh, so many ways. I think attempting to judge the spirituality of any motion picture not produced at least under the unction of the Spirit seems pointless and may actually lead to tooth decay. I mean, why spiritualize a great comedy when it is funny just on its own? A noted and renouned pastor here on the left coast was heard to retort one day before his congregation of thousands:" I know a lot of you out there won't watch any movies above a "G" rating so all I can tell you is, you sure have missed alot of good movies!" Loved the movie, wasn't offended at all and would watch it again except this time I would need to watch out for my orange squishy styro-foam ear plugs that always seem to find their way into my cheetohs!
  9. Our humble christian contemporay band "Fools Forgiven" has recently been invited to minister at a motorcycle clubs yearly "run" on the I-5. We have produced 2 CDs, been on the road for three years ministering at youth rallies, coffee houses, public events, county fairs, churches from washington to california and a couple of battle of the bands which were not even remotely connected to christianity but was an excellent oportunity to minister to "hardcore" rockers, punks, metalheads etc. Anyhoo, we feel totally ready to play in this setting for a very nefarious biker gang whose infamy is renouned across the western U.S. This will be our first show however in a local tavern so some of our members are somewhat apprehensive about the alcohol, smoking, etc. Any words of encouragement would be helpful or even a related experience shared might help. :roll: Shalom!
  10. כו וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים, נַעֲשֶׂה אָדָם בְּצַלְמֵנוּ כִּדְמוּתֵנוּ; וְיִרְדּוּ בִדְגַת הַיָּם וּבְעוֹף הַשָּׁמַיִם, וּבַבְּהֵמָה וּבְכָל- הָאָרֶץ, וּבְכָל-הָרֶמֶשׂ, הָרֹמֵשׂ עַל-הָאָרֶץ. 26 And God said: 'Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth Nu, Jeffrey: Thanks for a great answer and I suppose dominate was to be taken in the sense of Gen. 1:26. Dominion. I would suppose this "all the earth" phrase may include the "airwaves". Theologically these all belong to the messiah? Certainly. Shalom!
  11. Nu, once again I was dazzled and glitzed by the media church method presented by David Bruce of Hollywood Jesus dot com. His presentation and scripture sharing was quite elegant. I guess there was a time when we all thought an overhead projector showing the lyrics to our favorite canticles was shunned to some degree but this method whether we are willing to admit it seems very effective. Has the Church moved into a media based presentation service? Our lives are inundated by the media. We are a generation caught up in technology of the airwaves. TV, movies, CDs, MP3s, internet, computers, DVDs, these all seem to dominate the eye and ear gates to our souls. My thought is that maybe, just maybe, Y'shua could be Lord of these as well. Maybe we should dominate the industry and collectively banish the enemy from it. Maybe we are on the threshold of a serious change. Maybe not. I could only hope that it will not be just another attempt by the enemy to use our own good intentions against us. We are no doubt a society that is plugged in and tuned in to the "media", so if this bears fruit, great. :roll: I will continue to observe and pray if in my own skeptisism I can release the insanity of being in a rut long enough to approve. Ideas? :idea:

  13. Rich; once again a pleasure to hear from you. Here once again, is a Joke for your viewing pleasure! :roll: If Microsoft were Jewish: 1. Your PC would shut down automatically on Friday evenings. 2. Your "Start" button would be replaced with a "Let's go. I'm not getting any younger." button. 3. RETRY would be replaced with "You vant I should try again?" 4. When disconnecting external devices from your PC, instructions would say "Remove from your PC's tuchis the cable ". 5. Your CD player would be labelled "Nu, so play my music already.". 6. You would hear "Hava Nagila" during startup. 7. SCANDISK prompts you with, "You vant I should fix?" message. 8. When your PC is mult-tasking, you would occasionally hear an "Oy Gevult." 9. Manischewitz would advertise that its "monitor cleaning solution" gets rid of the "schmutz" on your screen. 10. After 20 minutes in an idle state, your PC would go "Schloffen." 11. All computer viruses would be cured with chicken soup. 12. After your computer dies, you would have to dispose of it within 24 hours. 13. Internet Explorer would have a spinning "Star of David" in the upper right corner. 14. A screen saver for channukah will be "Flying Draidles". 15. High capacity DVB's (digital video bagels) would supercede CD-ROM's Enjoy! Shalom! 8)
  14. 8O Asher, you may have discovered the metaphor for aiding backsliders in their recovery process! Kudos! My solution for the traffic problems in Chicago: "Death penalty for parking violation." 8)
