DVD Review



I apologize for not being more active, but not having other reviewers or books to review, it's been a little difficult. However I want to let you know about this wonderful DVD "God's Not Dead." Working at the library I found it on our shelves and took it home. When I brought it back I raved about it. I wanted to take it out again, but it seems word gets around. It's always on hold for someone else. That's great.

The opening scene is in a freshman college philosophy class. The professor states he is an atheist, and asks that if everyone will sign a paper with 3 little words on it he can dispense of the dust and get to the subject. Those 3 words are "God Is Dead." One student cannot sign that. He is given 3 chances to argue the case of the existence of God before the class.

Fueled by hate on one side and a determined love of God on the other this is not your simple movie. The poor kid researches and goes off on a journey of his own to state his case. The end is nothing short of amazing. I guess telling people stuff like this is one of the reasons I can't get a hold of it a second time. It's really that good.

ASULON: SWORD OF FIRE - BOOK ONE, by William McGrath

Day 3, Tuesday

We've talked about Daniel for a couple of days, and during that time have also talked about the King Argeus, Queen Isolde and the Anakim as well as Master Moor. These are all the good guys, even if they aren't all followers of Yeshua. So let's talk a little about the bad guys today.


Roughly speaking we learn through this story that we are all bad guys. However, for the point of this post there are some people who are intent on being the bad guys. There is the Builder's Guild, that group of people who move the wealth of the world around. They are the super rich. In reality they would be much like the Rothchilds and Rockefellers. These people, while considered rich actually move massive amounts of money around to create wars, peace, insurrections. They are responsible for, so they believe, raising up nations and destroying nations. They would be the group of people who took the credit for the fall of the Berlin Wall as well as the Soviet Empire. God's Word says that He alone exalts and humbles, not men. He might use bad men to do it, like Nebuchadnezzar, King of Bablyon. He wasn't what you'd call a good king, but He was God's instrument of justice. A lot of people have trouble with that concept, and I'm not going to go over it. I just wanted to point to one group of bad guys who exist in ASULON.


There is another group, and interestingly enough William McGrath uses their true name, the Illuminati. This group is more spiritually focused than the Builder's Guild. The Illuminati is known by several names down through the years, but the highest levels are still refer to as the Illuminati. If you'll notice the Illuminati is the real power before the Builder's Guild. What Jesus said is brought into vivid detail, "The love of money is the root of all evil." Another thing to notice is how divided the enemy is. Oh they put on a show of working together, but hatred, pride, greed and a dozen other negative qualities pull them apart. These very things can keep us, as Christians, from working together as one. Take heed, because Jesus taught that we were to love God with everything we have and to love others as we love ourself. We can only succeed if we function as one. He is the Head of the Body of Christ. Yet, these bad guys are also showing the other side, "A house divided against itself shall fall." We begin to see this, even though we realize Daniel is in an unimaginable situation. Even then we realize that as bad as things look, the bad guys are already starting to fall apart. In some areas it looks like they're getting stronger, but in reality that is their weakness. True power is found in God, and God is love.

I couldn't help but think of the Masons as well with The Builder's Group. The name and the secrecy, as well as a connection with some dark forces.
