We ARE good people

I wonder what Ray Comfort would have to say about this:

"The Ten Commandments have been a cornerstone of our society for nearly one hundred years," explained "The Ten" director David Wain on the film’s website. "If you've ever taken a Sunday off, or if you've ever stopped yourself from murdering someone, then you yourself have been following the Ten Commandments without even knowing it." 1[Emphasis added] - Original Quote



Talk about liberty in scripture. Just because I obey one law once I am following God's rules. So long and goodnight to

"for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23)


and

"For whoever keeps the whole law but fails in one point has become accountable for all of it." (James 2:11)



The director, David Wein, had this to say:

"I have no pretensions that this movie will change the world; my only expectation is that it will change the way everyone on this planet thinks and behaves." 2


Basically he saying that he does not claim that the world will be changed by the movie, but he hopes that the people of the world will change. This is most antithetical.

The article I found this in, New Film Spoofs Ten Commandments1, states:

"Some Christian leaders feel that the film is part of a larger trend of increasing antagonism toward Christianity and religion in America."



Praise the Lord, His time is coming.

Another website, at thinkchristian.net had this to say:

"I’m reminded of Dr. Wilbur Williams’ comment in Old Testament class. 'You can’t break the Ten Commandments. They will break you if you disobey them.'" 3



It is such a pity that people are so willing to mock us not realizing that we are told to rejoice in those days. "No servant is greater than his master" comes to mind. They will hate us for our love of Christ. I do not intentionally go and watch movies to see blasphemy, but when it is presented (and I can do nothing about it), I am actually glad. The reason is this: they do not hate us because we are wrong. Satan (the god of the air) has put it in the hearts of man to attack us from every angle. When we are insulted for His name, persecuted for His name and looked down on because of His grace, we can praise God for being faithful in His promises to us.
