Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I discussed about watching movies, online.
Some films I've watched are not as sinful as some others I have watched.
It's hard to tell what will be a good film and what won't be. Unless, you're familiar with the movie, ahead of time.
As I mentioned before, my nurse told me a while ago about www.crackle.com. I found it to be a good site, so I watched more movies. Here's what I watched, while I still living without my television (TV):
* Hitch, starring Will Smith, and others. Feel free to check out this romantic-comedy film, here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hitch_(film). This movie I had seen in the past, but felt I needed a few chuckles, so I watched it, again.
* Step Brothers, starring Will Farrell and John C. Reilly. Here's a link, so you can read about it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Step_Brothers_(film). This was deemed to be a comedy. And, it was, so to speak. However, the problems and attitudes in the film, I found to be upsetting, considering it was not children involved. Even so, it had a good ending, and was worth watching.
* 2 Days in Paris, starring Julie Delpy, Adam Goldberg and Daniel Bruhl. Check it out, by clicking on this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2_Days_in_Paris. This was supposed to be a romantic comedy-drama film. But, in my mind, it was not a comedy. It was definitely a drama film. And, not truly romantic, although some people might dispute my feelings about it. This film was filled with more sin in various ways, than I expected.
* Visioneers, starring Zach Galifianakis & Judy Greer. Please check it out, here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visioneers. While it was listed as a comedy film, my opinion is that... it isn't. When writing this entry, and posting the link so you can read about this movie, I saw that it is actually supposed to be dark-comedy. Dark... it definitely was. Comedy, it was not. At least, in my mind.
One thing I didn't like about most movies, is that they rarely ever mention God in them. Of course, that's the way society has been for many years.
Even so, I have found that some films are totally against God, in some ways. Sort of like Visioneers.
It seem to me that much of society doesn't believe in God. This makes me sad.
In fact, thinking that there are so many unbelievers here on earth, breaks my heart. Especially, since so many people walk/live each day with their own lust in mind. And, not God.
This brought to mind, 2 Peter 3:3-10, "Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up."
Believe me when I say it makes me sad that all people are not saved. Saved from spending eternity in Hell. They are sometimes called scoffers, especially when they focus on themselves, and not on God.
God will save, whom He will save.
We, His children, are to fulfill His Great Commission. We are to plant those seeds for Christ, with those who need salvation.
We are to preach the gospel to all the creatures of the earth, to be obedient to His calling.
This way, after seeds are planted, God will water them.. and will reap many who have gained salvation... by trusting in Jesus Christ.
As those Bible verses tell us, we should not be ignorant regarding God. He makes us promises that He will always keep.
So please, if you have not yet gained salvation by trusting in Jesus Christ, do so, today. Tomorrow, may be too late.
Always remember that our eternal future is in His hands. The Day of the Lord, is coming.
Until next time...
