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

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. 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.
