The emotions have had a beautiful time, but the will is left untouched

“Religious movies are mistakenly thought by some people to be blessed of the Lord because many come away from them with moist eyes. If this is a proof of God’s blessing, then we might as well go the whole way and assert that every show that brings tears is of God. Men and women who are dedicated to sin and appointed to death may nevertheless weep in sympathy for the painted actors and be not one bit the better for it. The religious movie is sure to draw together a goodly number of persons who cannot distinguish the twinges of vicarious sympathy from the true operations of the Holy Ghost.” (A.W. Tozer, A.W., Tozer on Worship and Entertainment)

Do you really believe Mel Gibson’s Anne Emmerich inspired Passion could do more for you spiritually than the inspired Word of God and the Holy Spirit? Do you believe Mel Gibson and Anne Catherine Emmerich could possibly “show” you more than the Holy Spirit of God?

Some are seeing The Passion over and over, just trying to get a “glimpse” of God. “Oh, I want too see Him, look upon His face”. They are starving spiritually to hear from the Lord. http://hookupdate.net/escort-index/dayton Amos 8:11, prophesied of the days when there would be a famine not of bread. . . but of hearing the words of the Lord.

Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: Amos 8:11

But they produced the Dark Ages

Well friend, we are there. The famine is clearly here. Millions of people are storming the theaters looking for a morsel or a few crumbs from the Lord. They are spiritually starving to death.

Yet the Lord gave us a spiritual feast, but we have refused to taste it. Like a little child refusing to eat their vegetables, “I don’t like them”. The Lord gave us the King James Bible to feast on but people say, “I don’t like it. It’s too hard to read. It’s too outdated”. And the people are slowly starving to spiritual death. They crawl in the garbage dumps of Hollywood and Catholicism searching for some scraps from the Lord. But friend, they are not there. . .

Go back to the old King James Bible. It is the only lasting and satisfying spiritual nourishment that will sustain you. It has proved it’s power and provision many times. Just look at the majesty of the revivals of Moody, Sunday, Wesley, Whitfield, and others. The Word of God was once the foundation of this once great nation.

The reason millions of people are flooding the theaters is they are desperately searching for something from God

A.W Tozer in the book, Tozer on Worship and Entertainment, writes of the Miracle Plays of the Middle Ages. The Miracle Plays were today’s version of The Passion . They were futile attempts to bring spiritual revival through the art of drama and acting. The Dark Ages were the darkest hours in the history of the church.

“Those who would appeal for precedent to the Miracle Plays have certainly overlooked some important facts. For instance, the vogue of the Miracle Play coincided exactly with the most dismally corrupt period the Church has ever known. When the Church emerged at last from its long moral night these plays lost popularity and finally passed away. And be it remembered, the instrument God used to bring the Church out of the darkness was not drama; it was the biblical one of Spirit-baptized preaching. Serious-minded men thundered the truth and the people turned to God.
