The Bible….review #1

I am about half way through the first show.

I did find where the producers were interviewed on Bill O’Reilly.  They describe themselves as being devout Christians.  They talkedabout how they wanted to create a show that would depict the Bible as is… so how are they doing?

Well…The first major thing of note Lot and Sodom.

Okay so the show depicts this event as follows:  the two angels go to Sodom, and are apparently assaulted and wind up at Lots house.  Lot then allows the angels into the house where he holds off the crowd outside.  Lot tells the crowd that they (angels) are his guests and that he will not let them take them.  Well that didn’t please them so the angels (one of which was a Samurai master) went out and cut a pathway out of the city.

Ninja angel


What really happened?

Lot is sitting in the gateway to Sodom.  The two angels walk up, and apparently Lot recognizes them and refers to them as lords.  Lot invites them to his humble abode, but the angels refuse wanting to spend the night in the square.  Lot insists and finally the angels give way to Lot.  Now, while the conversation was going on someone or a group of people noticed the angels.  Lot leads the angels back to his house and cooks a meal.  Meanwhile a gang forms outside of Lots doors and they are demanding the two angels….to have sex with them.  Lot, protecting his guests offers his daughters to them.  That was unacceptable to this gang, and they threatened to hurt Lot and pressed forward to the door.  The angels pulled Lot back, struck the gang with blindness, and lead them out of the city.

I think the show really missed an opportunity with this.  Can you think of this scene where Lot chooses to protect the servants of God by giving his own daughters over to this gang of miscreants?  What a powerful message of sacrifice   This was the reason he was saved out of the city.   Also….what a way to cheapen everything that the show accomplished in a 2 minute segment.  A Samurai ..really?  Of everything that was in the show this will be the one thing remembered.  No one will be talking about the imagery of Noah’s arc or the faith of Abraham, or the depiction of Egypt (which was incredible)…but every is talking about ninja angels….

UFO sighting over the Temple Mount?

Okay….so a recent video has shown up on YouTube showing what reports to be a UFO floating above the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.  This video has garnered a lot of attention over the last few days.  Here is the video:

 Here is another video of the same event….but from a different angle:

This video is indeed impressive, and gave me the chills just watching it. However, There is something odd about this video….maybe it has to do with this still photo being the exact backdrop to the video?

Back drop to a hoax?

To be fair, there are three videos of this event (one of which we won’t link because of foul language – we strive to keep our blog G or PG), and probably about 4 or 5 different speculations about what is happening here.  The guesses range from a true (alien) UFO to demons or angels to finally… just a hoax.  Christian blogs and message boards are certainly a buzz with this.  I am not convinced that this is real. 

So let’s take this a whole new direction…  What is the point of this video?  It would appear that there is some sort of religious significance with this…  But is there really?

Let’s pretend for a moment that this video is real…

What is the point?  What is the significance?  We know that God is in control…what does He gain with this?  The Bible allows us to draw a logical conclusion that aliens cannot exist.  Based on that conclusion, this would have to be an Angel descending from Heaven, sent directly by God and allowed by Him to make itself visable.  What do we get from that?  What does He get from that? In other words, what’s the benefit to God or humanity?

Given all this, then, let’s assume that the video is a hoax…

What is the point?  What is the significance?  What is gained from such a video?

See what I am getting at? 

Now, we at No Apologizing would never presume to know the heart of God, or to understand the actions of God.  But it often doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand the motives of man.  These videos have exploded over the internet, and on the blogosphere.  Someone has gotten a lot of attention with this. 

MANY are using this video for religious purposes….ALREADY.  “It was an Angel from God”,  “The Angel above the Mosque PROVES the Islam is the one true religion”.  Again weigh this video based on the motives of man vs. what we know about God…

There is significant evidence that this is a hoax…  This begs the question: Why are people so willing to believe something like this is real?  Is it because they are looking for something that is bigger than themselves?  Is it because they desire to see something incredible?  Be a part of or witness something that is historic?  That it is impossible to believe that God created this universe and/or there is no way that we are the only ones here?

Whatever it is… I am willing to bet that they believe videos like this because there is a hole that needs to be filled in their spirit.  Rather than filling it with God, they fill it with things like this…

Just a thought.
