Ridley Scott discussed Moses' moral compass in his latest film "Exodus: Gods and Kings" just in time for its debut in theaters on Friday, Dec. 12.
Helmed by Scott, "Exodus: Gods and Kings" stars Christian Bale as Moses, who frees thousands of Hebrews enslaved by Rhamses, portrayed by Joel Edgerton.
Promoting the film ahead of its release, Scott addressed Moses' heroic endeavor as it appears on the big screen, voicing his own opinion on why the prophet followed God's orders to lead the slaves to freedom. The award-winning director told The Christian Post that Moses may have examined the state of affairs in Egypt after he heard the voice of God, therefore realizing the wrongness behind slavery. more >>
Throughout our lives we are going to feel that we might have been treated unfairly in a situation. Not everything in life is going to go the way we want it to. When being mistreated spans over a long period of time, we may find ourselves struggling with resentment.
We often find ourselves resenting others due to insults, bad words, and injustice. But, if we let this linger in our lives it can cause havoc. It can cause us to hurt internally and hurt those around us. Our actions rub off on others even if they are not the cause of the pain. When this happens we must look to a higher power for guidance. The word of God can help us overcome the resentment we may feel.
Below are Bible verses we can look to for guidance: more >>
Ben Piershale proves that God's existence has always been here. His evidence will have you cheering "Amen!" throughout this whole video. A spoken word that shows the importance of building a relationship with Jesus.
Most of us are intimated by faith. We dismiss belief that something is greater than us. But, when you look at the beauty of life, there is a fingerprint of design all around us. Religion is not the way of life. It's not about right or wrong, or following a list of rules. It is the identity of Jesus, that gives rest to the soul. We often turn to God in desperate times, but the truth is, God has never left us. If you seek Him you will find Him.
God's one desire is a relationship with us. If you ask God to reveal Himself to you, He most definitely will. Listen to this man's spoken word below showing us all that God exists all around us: more >>
Alabama megachurch pastor David Platt urged Christians to give God a "blank check" when it comes to missions, allowing Him to send them anywhere in the world for the sake of the Gospel, even if that means relocating their family to Syria, Somalia or Iraq.
Platt, who is also the Southern Baptist International Mission Board president, said in his recent podcast, "Our Obligation to the Unreached," that Christians' salvation demands that they offer "a blank check before God with no strings from you, from me, from our churches to say we know we must work, we must strive, live, and die to get the Gospel to people who never heard it."
By his estimation, there are 2 billion people in over 6,500 people groups who do not have access to the Gospel. Putting ourselves in their shoes, Platt described, "that would mean that we have the knowledge of God, we've rejected God, we stand condemned before God and if we don't hear the good news of what God has done in Christ then we will die in that state and go to an everlasting hell without ever hearing the gospel." more >>
It is clear to see that God has blessed each and every one of us in so many ways. As Christians, we recognize Jesus as the Father and we are His children. Even if you don't recognize God as your personal Savior, these blessings can still be applied for everyone.
His love can be granted to anyone. This does not mean that everything in this world will be perfect. We live in a world in which we are all sinners. Even though God loves each and every one of us, He requires judgment over sins. God shows us his love in the way He draws us to Himself. Jesus is presented to us as a Savior from our sins. more >>
