Before I begin today's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I would like to wish my grandson, N... Happy Birthday! I'm looking forward to seeing you to celebrate. Happy Birthday, N!
Guess what I'll be doing today, here on LwL? I'll be doing something I do fairly often.
I'll be telling you about movies I've watched!
Here are some:
* Only When I Laugh, starring Marsha Mason, Kristy McNichol, James Coco and other actors. To check out this comedy-drama film, click on this link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Only_When_I_Laugh_(film). I must admit, I had more tears, then chuckling. Even so, I enjoyed the movie.
* Blame It on Rio, starring Michael Caine, Demi Moore and other actors. If you'd like to check out this romantic-comedy film, click here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blame_It_on_Rio. To be honest, I didn't find this movie to be comedy in nature, or even romantic. Still, I watched it.
* Boy, Did I Get A Wrong Number, starring Bob Hope, Phyllis Diller and other actors. Want to check out this American comedy film? If so, click on this link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boy,_Did_I_Get_a_Wrong_Number! I enjoyed this movie, even though it wasn't always funny.
* The Mouse That Roared, starring Peter Sellers, Jean Seberg and William Hartnell. Click on this link if you'd like to check out this British satirical Eastman Color comedy film: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mouse_That_Roared_(film). Even though this movie seemed to be weird in some ways, I enjoyed watching it.
* The Awful Truth, starring Irene Dunne and Cary Grant. If you click on this link, you'll be able to check out this American screwball comedy film: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Awful_Truth. Even though some of this movie wasn't truly comedy to me, I enjoyed it. Especially, the ending!
You might be wondering why I didn't seem to laugh much, even though these movies were supposed to be basically comedy films.
In the movies, even though they were supposed to be comedy films, they contained sin.
Of course, if you know me I'm sure you'll understand that it's mainly due to the fact that I'm a born-again Christian... who doesn't find anything funny about sin.
Just as we know from, Romans 6:23, "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Yes, the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord!
Sin leads to death.
Death without salvation, leads people to spend eternity in Hell, separated from God... with NO chance of escape.
However, once we've gained salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, we will be saved (Acts 16:31). And, once we've become saved, read God's Word, the Bible, and live as a born-again Christian... we do not want to sin.
My friend, hopefully you have become gained salvation and become born-again, just as God's Word, the Bible tells us we need to do.
If so, I'll enjoy spending eternity with you and with God, in Heaven.
Until next time...
