This is a follow-up from my previous entry. It’s necessary that we dig deeper into the issue of Hollywood and the Church responding to it. Dr. Phil Cooke writes an article on how pastors and ministry leaders can use the Narnia tales and its resources to reach a wider audience. The article itself needs to be examined against the Word of God as it contains innumerable errors which Christians fail to detect but defend it instead.
The author: ‘Dr. Phil Cooke is a writer, speaker, filmmaker, & media consultant who’s work focuses on creating personal and organizational cultures where real change happens.‘ The author’s concern is not the Gospel and saving souls, it is creating cultures where real change happens. To begin with, the author is not a Spirit-filled, Gospel-convicted believer, he is swinging the pendulum to hypnotize the unsuspecting. [The synonym for change is transform. This term is extensively used by the NWO (New World Order) propaganda. The NWO, hence the one world government, cannot be achieved without bringing about cultural changes as they want it.]
‘”One of the key principles that the movie industry in Hollywood is founded on is understanding how popular ideas and trends connect to an audience. It’s no surprise that when comic books are popular, films like X-Men, Wolverine, Superman, or Batman hit the screen. When teen girls (Christians teens as well)start buying romance novels, films based on books by Nicolas Sparks fill the theaters (what are Christian girls doing drooling over romantic movies?) When the Christian audience finally began buying tickets, once again, Hollywood responded. As a result, even in the middle of this economic recession, the entertainment industry is doing remarkably well.“ Hollywood is the serpent in the garden, and Christians the Eve. Hollywood lures, Christians respond, Hollywood tempts more, Christians respond more. Hollywood does not care about your soul, it wants you spending eternity in hell; it wants you to go against God’s command of not letting the world consume you. The serpent will ask whether God really say that (and those words of doubt may even come out of the mouth of your pastor if he is using Hollywood to back up his messages!) The Bible is inspired by the Holy Spirit of God, and you say it’s okay to use Hollywood alongside?? [May I add that Hollywood is owned by the Illuminati, the Lucifer worshippers. At least by this knowledge you will refrain from entertaining your audience with it during your sermons; and the congregation itself reject being entertained by it.] And of course Hollywood does remarkably well during the recession, isn’t the global finance governed by the same Satan worshippers?
The reason Hollywood “responds”, as state by Dr. Cooke, is because the Illuminati want to bring the change to the culture as they want to it. “One of the key principles that the movie industry in Hollywood is founded on is understanding how popular ideas and trends connect to an audience (and hence bring about the change).” The Global Elites, as they are also known as, control the world by promoting their ideas and trends through films and music. When viewers watch a movie, their subconscious mind picks up the subliminal* messages. The message doesn’t even have to be subliminal; a human mind can be easily manipulated like a puppet, doing and saying what it sees others do and say. Hollywood films implants music, imagery, thoughts, scenes, words and actions in the human mind that at some point in time, the person is bound to do the same thing (depending on the situation) as shown in the movie, whether good or bad. This is a gross mockery to having the same mind as that of Christ! It is sheer foolishness to bring in the Luciferian entertainers to be part of their sermon by those who call themselves by Christ’s name.
“The truth is, connecting the ideals, dreams, and concerns of the culture to a compelling message is something the Apostle Paul discovered when he addressed the thinkers and philosophers at Athens in Acts 17. He didn’t speak in a vacuum. He connected, because he understood and respected the issues that mattered to them. ” – Paul did not use Greek entertainment to support God’s Gospel! “For while I was passing through and examining the objects of your worship, I also found an altar with this inscription, ‘TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.’ Therefore what you worship in ignorance, this I proclaim to you.” Paul was making Christ known to them by revealing to them who the unknown God is. He did not use their items of entertainment, or the names of any other “god” like Zeus, Ares, Athena, Aphrodite, Nike, Apollo, Artemis and Hercules (or Aslan, Superman, Spiderman, Matrix)
” 20th Century Fox and Walden Media are making resources available from the movie for you to use to help tell that story.” 20th CF couldn’t care less about the saving grace of God. It’s not the Gospel they want you to share, it’s the Bible they want to get rid of! And may I add that they are succeeding in accomplishing the agenda? Is it not God’s Gospel? Is it not His Word alone that can fully speak of His mighty acts? Or does Hollywood do a better job in relating history?
“It’s been said that “Hollywood is great at making fake things look real, but Christians are great at making real things look fake.” Now, you have the chance to change that perception. Here’s your chance to share one of the greatest stories of C.S. Lewis (read the truth about C.S. Lewis) , and create a platform to engage your community with the greatest story ever told.” No thanks. The Bible is written through the inspiration of God, and it is written as HE wants it to be; and He wants it to be told as it is. If people think Christians are great at making real things look fake, praise God! He reveals the truth to those who look foolish to the world but are wise unto God. He chose the lowly things of the world to confound the noble. The Gospel looks fake to those to whom God has not revealed the mysteries of His Kingdom! It’s not our responsibility to manipulate it so that it looks real to the ungodly.
So here’s the conclusion: if you try to justify Hollywood sermons, just be informed that you are justifying the Luciferian agenda too. Please repent and turn to the pure and powerful Word of God for the sake of your soul and of your sheep (the goats will leave). Get to know the God by whose name you call yourself; if you believe He is the same yesterday today and forever (Heb 13:8) then the same applies for His Scripture. It’s the plain truth, nothing but the truth and it is not sweet or entertaining, but stern – convicting, warning, rebuking, encouraging, inspiring, correcting; dealing with eternal life and death!
