How dare someone suggest
Last night as I prepared to watch The Bible a ten part docudrama on the History Channel, there were people telling me I should not watch it. Some of the reasons why they said I should not watch it was: One of the people who made it was a New Ager, Rick Warren was consulted, the Catholic Church was consulted, they added dramatic scenes that are not in the Bible, they used the NIV version of the Bible, and some other stuff along those lines.
I could understand why some might be offended because of dramatic scenes being added, but some of the excuses are just plain insulting. How dare someone suggest that I should not watch this because the Catholic Church was consulted? Even though I am not a Catholic and do not agree with all their teachings they still profess that salvation come through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
When I was in college my closest friends tried to convince me that I should go to church, and I kept on saying no. I argued that since there are so many different types of churches that all you Christians have no ideal on the right way to worship God or even if there is a God. When I heard the reasons why I should not watch The Bible, those same thoughts came rushing back again.
What saddens me is there might be some Christians and non-believers who might have not watched this because of what some people were saying. There are many professing Christians who do not know their Bible stories. They do not know who Abraham or Moses is. They do not understand the history of God’s chosen people.
Every day I have come to believe more and more that other Christians do more harm to other Christian’s faith then all of the other things that attack their faith combined.
