Love Darkness? Or, Light?

In the past, I've let you know here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), about some of the movies I watched, during the time when I had limited television (TV) reception, during the time when balconies were under repair in the building where I live.

Well, today is the last time I'll have to discuss which films I was sort of forced to watch, during that time frame.  :(  :)

Here's the info:

It Happened To Jane, starring Doris Day, Jack Lemmon and Ernie Kovacs.  Here is a link for you to be able to check it out:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/It_Happened_to_Jane.  This romantic comedy film, was actually a good movie, to me.  It was encouraging, since those who did right, won over those who didn't.  :)

Von Ryan's Express, starring Frank Sinatra and Trevor Howard.  Check out this film, here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Von_Ryan's_Express.  I truly enjoyed this WW2 movie.  It was wonderful to see how Allies succeeded in escaping, after being abused in a prison camp.

Avalon, starring Armin Mueller-Stahl, Elizabeth Perkins, Joan Plowright and Aiden Quinn.  Feel free to find out more about this film, here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avalon_(1990_film).  This was a rather stressful movie to watch, with both good and not so good things that happened to Jewish immigrants.

Phffft, starring Judy Holliday, Jack Lemmon, Jack Carson & Kim Novak.  Click on this link to check it out:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phffft.  This was supposed to be a romantic comedy film.  In some scenes, it may have been.  However, I enjoyed this film, because instead of having a marriage fall apart forever, the ending led us to see that it was being restored!

The Revenge of Frankenstein, starring Peter Cushing, Francis Matthews, Eunice Gayson and Michael Gwynn.  If you like, check it out, here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Revenge_of_Frankenstein.  To be honest, I do not really like horror films.  And, I didn't really enjoy this one, either.

The Producers, starring Zero Mostel, Gene Wilder, and more.  For more information on this film, please click, here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Producers_(1968_film).  This is known as a satirical dark comedy cult classic musical film.  Believe it or not, I enjoyed this film.

As you can understand, if you've followed how I feel about various movies, I enjoy those that have positiveness within the context of the film.  I don't really care for movies that are so filled with sin, without positive endings.

Yes, I realize that everyone is a sinner.

We are all born into sin.  Inherited sin, from what Adam and Eve did, in the garden of Eden.

But, the fact remains, that God loved us so much, that He sent His only begotten Son to earth.  Jesus came to suffer, die on a wooden cross, and be resurrected, so that we who trust in/believe upon Him, should not perish but, have everlasting life.

Just as we read, in John 3:16-19, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil."

How grateful I am that God didn't send Jesus to condemn the world, but to save the world.

How grateful I am that those who believe upon Jesus, are not condemned.  However, those who do not believe upon Him, are already condemned.

This means that we are born sinners, and only become saved, once we come to trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.  By doing so, we receive eternal life. 

Hallelujah!

The sad part is, that those who do not trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ will suffer for eternity, with no chance of escape from Hell.  This is sad, knowing that those people loved darkness and evil deeds, rather than light, and good deeds.  :(

This portion of scripture also shows us that evilness is obtained immediately from birth.  And, exists with all people.  At least, until they come to a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Are you trusting in/believing upon Jesus Christ, as your Saviour?

Hopefully, you are.  This way, I'll meet with you some day, in Heaven. 


Until next time...
