Religious leaders of all stripes endorse Son of God movie

Hear from our friends and partners, some of the nation’s leading influencers in faith, who offer insightful commentary on selected scenes from the movie Son of God.

You can have hours of fun on the Son of God movie trailer site, where some of the biggest mega-names in the visible church are partnering and promoting the movie based on last year’s History Channel series, The Bible.

Yes, we’ve already seen most of this. It is, after all, the “just the Jesus” part of the original miniseries. Well, minus the devil character, who apparently looked too much like President Obama to be included in the final cut.

Who are the project sponsors?   T.D. Jakes, RIck Warren, Joel Osteen, Pat Robertson, Bill Hybels, a couple of Roman Catholic cardinals and archbishops, Leith Anderson, Erwin McManus, Paula White, Christine Caine, George Wood, Crai Groeshel and many others representing some of the more concerning movements in Christendom.

    Just like the movie, all these 'leaders' are questionable! Certainly not a one of them has a ministry that resembles that of the Apostles, or of our Lord. If you aren't familiar with Roma Downey and her husband, I recommend you read this – http://thelasthiker.wordpress.com/2014/02/23/the-

    Mike, I look forward to your 'review' on this latest attempt from Hollywood to portray God, albeit through unregenerate eyes.

    Isn't it a Catholic movie? I am almost sure it is? Not 100% sure but thought someone was commenting on it, and who cares about endorsements from big names! In Gods eyes there are no big I,s and little You,s!I ve read the book! You know the Bible and I know who my savior is and his name is Jesus not Mary! He is my advocate. Sure would be nice if someone would make a movie on FOXES book of martyrs! But Rome wnt let that happen! Have a good week!

    I agree with the comments posted above…..the southern baptists are heavily promoting this movie as well. With Rick Warren's bible study that has been produced to go along with this movie, Lifeway is shilling everything they can on it too. Since they all stick together, many of the individual Baptist state newspapers are posting full page ads for this Catholic endorsed movie.

    So much blurring of the lines. So much compromise going on in the evangelical denominations to promote this lame attempt of a movie that strays in many ways from the Bible. What a concern.

    For an example of the heavy marketing of this see this link…..this Baptist state paper said they wouldn't post the ad only two months ago due to some convictions on it, but it appears they have caved since every other southern baptist is getting on board. (Very last page of the paper will show the ad)

    This is a huge concern for several reasons. Here are three:
    1) This is simply a part of the "Bible" miniseries, which (aside from having heavy Catholic theology) added to, subtracted from, and changed the very words of God Himself. Both Deut. and Revelation tell of definite, harsh judgments that will be dealt to those who alter Holy Scripture.

    2) Anyone who truly understands the Biblical text describing the life of Christ is able to tell that Jesus was severely mis-portrayed in the miniseries. Since this movie is simply a part of that series, unless drastic corrections are made it will once again be blasphemous.

    3) 2 John 1:9-11 and other verses give clear instructions to Christians: do not partner with false religions and/or teachers. Mark and Roma are devout members of a false religion that teaches a false gospel. I personally know of professing Christian leaders and organizations, particularly Southern Baptist, who endorsed the miniseries, and are endorsing this movie.

    I hate the thought of people I know who are unsaved watching this false portrayal of Jesus and coming away with a completely wrong understanding of Christianity. And, even more troubling to me than that, are the many who claim to be Christians who will rave over it, the churches that will sponsor showings of it thinking they are doing a real service to their communities . There is a take-over of Christianity happening before our eyes and this movie is just one part it. The ecumenism and unity movements going forth. Women in more pulpits. The softening of the stance on homosexuality and gay marriage in some churches. We can see where it is all headed… to the one world religion and the Anti-christ…. all coming together and happening so fast. But, praise God, He is still in control and coming soon. But will He find real faith upon the earth? Let us hold fast and stay strong and keep proclaiming truth even as the stream roller seems to be rolling full speed ahead. The victory is already won!

    MIke and Stand Up for the Truth – thank you for taking this "Son of God" movie on. And thank you for all that commented – very good.points. When I first saw this movie was coming out and watched the trailer, I was very troubled. The same way I was troubled when I watched some of the Bible mini-series on TV. Come on – ninja angels leading Lot and his family out of Sodom? I couldn't spiritually stomach more than a few minutes of it. What troubled me is how Christians seemed to be gobbling this all up when it was so much fluff. Are we that desperate in Christianity that we are willing to serve up "fast food Jesus" just to get people to try a taste of the Gospel?

      read the bible through ask G-D to open your eyes to who Jesus is ! the bible can be read under 80 hours , would you say that eternity is that important to spend precious time reading the bible and know who your Savior is.
      Are you really willing to entrust your eternity in the hands of corrupt / faillible men ??? without checking if what they say or portrait Jesus to be, is really in the bible ?
      I was told that Marie ( which is not her real name it is actually Miriam/Hebrew) ascended in heaven it is no where to be found in the scriptures Miriam died in Ephesus ( a litiral church in Asia , where John the Apostles went to church for a time ) . Remember we can read the bible , we are also encouraged to study it . Take , make time to seek the Truth your Eternity is that important !
