A Must See

My brother sent this video to me yesterday. I had chills as I watched it. It really depicts what many of us face daily!!

Praise the Lord that HE is always there fighting for us and waiting for us with open arms!

I'm probably the only person in the blogosphere who doesn't love this little video. I find it lacks Scriptural depth and a proper understanding of the authority of Christ. I have a post planned on it next week.

Don't want to leave you hanging over this :D So, I'll try to share a brief response here.

I dislike this video/performance because of the way Jesus is portrayed. It is quite contrary to the way Scripture portrays Him. Here he's little more than a dancing flower child.

First we see him as a joyful, playful dancer interacting with the woman. Quite contrary to the way Christ truly interacts with us which is through His holy and inspired Word.

Then we see Him portrayed as a rather impotent opponent, jumping up and down on the sidelines of her life completely unable to gain her attention. Again, not the Christ of the Bible. Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He is seated at the right hand of the Father.

Finally, He makes His move and is almost overcome by evil before finally casting evil off His shoulders. Again, a weak portrayal of Him who conquered the grave and has defeated all His enemies at the cross.

Them's my thoughts.
