This Untoward Generation...

As I've mentioned before here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I enjoy watching movies!

Here are some I watched recently:

Another You, starring Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder.  Here is a link to read about it:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Another_You.  While this is a comedy film, it is based on a lie.  Since I enjoy both stars, I watched it, anyway.

*  Mr. Moto Takes A Vacation, starring Peter Lorre and Lionel Atwill.  There isn't much info here, but check it out, if you like:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Moto_Takes_a_Vacation.  While some people think of this film as being crime/drama, others consider it to be a mystery.  Since I enjoy mystery movies, I agree with it being a mystery. 

*  Do Not Disturb, starring Doris Day and Rod Taylor.  Here is a link so you check out this romantic comedy film:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Do_Not_Disturb_(1965_film).  This movie was filled with miscommunication that lead to false thoughts.  The ending was rather humorous.  I guess you can tell that I enjoyed this film.

Teacher's Pet, starring Doris Day and Clark Gable.  Check out this comedy movie, here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teacher's_Pet_(1958_film).  In the past, I had seen this movie.  Still, I decided to watch it, again.  After all, it's about journalism!

*  A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, starring James Dunn and Dorothy McGuire.  For information about this film made of a novel, click here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Tree_Grows_in_Brooklyn_(film).  James Dunn info:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Dunn_(actor).  Anyone who knows me well in real life, knows that I adore this film. 

As a child I read the book, with the same name.  It became my favourite book.  Even now, it is a favourite!

By the way, I included a link for James Dunn, because Dunn was my Irish granny's maiden name.  And, James Dunn actually resembles some of my family members! Of course, no one knows if there is any family connection.  Even so, to me this was very interesting.   To you, it probably isn't.  :(  :)

Of course, the movie... A Tree Grows in Brooklyn was made many years ago.  

Even though that era had people who were not saved, much like today, there were people who belonged to God.  People who were saved, by trusting in Jesus Christ.

The unfortunate thing in my mind, is the fact that not everyone belongs to Him.  And, knowing that the world is truly evil, we need to be saved. 

Thinking about this, brought to mind Acts 2:40, "And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation."

Yes, we need to be saved.  Saved from this evil world.  But more importantly, saved from spending eternity in Hell, separated from God.

This generation we live in, is not much different than other generations.  But, in some ways, the world is becoming worse, on a daily basis. 

How can you become saved?

Believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved (Acts 16:31).

Until next time...
