Why can't calvinist write great thrillers that turn into movies :-) That would be awesome.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-9193910827847323491.post-81485332237413922632010-01-01T11:21:27.913-05:002010-01-01T11:21:27.913-05:00If it were a commentary for the Christian's ea...If it were a commentary for the Christian's ear only, it would be a different matter. But what concerns me is this: the struggle presented can be presumed to be the struggle of all man, believers or not. So, this leaves the viewer begging the question: how do I overcome? And, the answer offered in the movie originates from within. It is self determination that allows Parson to overcome the evil. There is no mention of Christ, regeneration, or anything of the sort.Nick Carterhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05389903464638309338noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-9193910827847323491.post-74840857408795908952010-01-01T07:36:03.999-05:002010-01-01T07:36:03.999-05:00I see it as being a metaphor for the Christian lif...I see it as being a metaphor for the Christian life. We, as Christians, have two natures warring within ourselves. I understand your concern with Pelagianism, but I don't think it is Dekker's point or philosophy.William McMurtryhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/04200109009192019851noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-9193910827847323491.post-11512664648669658912009-12-22T00:03:27.635-05:002009-12-22T00:03:27.635-05:00I've got to see that movie 3!
