There has been enough said and written about the “Son of God” movie to convince people who are willing to listen to truth. The ones who believe it is a good movie will not change their minds. People that cannot recognize the issues with the movie before they watch it will probably not detect anything wrong about it after they watch it. Nothing I can add will make a difference either way. God does not force people to follow Him, and neither can we force them to accept the truth. The dividing line has been drawn.
The most disconcerting factor in the situation is the unwillingness of people to even consider the facts and God’s word. Instead of saying, “Well I didn’t know that, please tell me more”, they go on the attack. I’m used to being called names, accused of being everything from a heretic to demoniac, but not to the extent that I received during the past few days. The synopsis of most responses minus the diatribes is, “I don’t care what you say, I don’t want to hear it, I like the movie” ala Matthew Hagee. I can’t argue with that.
It appears that everyone that has spent the past decade ignoring the warnings are incapable of hearing them now. I don’t know all the reasons they chose that path. For some it was bad soteriology and for others bad eschatology. Some professing Christians have become so enamored by the world system that they have no taste for things spiritual. The Apostle Paul wrote concerning endtimes professing Christians:
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. (2 Timothy 4:3-4)
Finally, there is this word from David Wilkerson.
I keep this foremost in my mind and before my eyes, because every minister of the gospel one day has to face it when he stands before the Lord. He will say, “Son of man, I made thee a watchman. You were to hear the words of My mouth and give them warnings from Me. You were to tell the wicked, ‘Thou shalt surely die.’ And you gave them no warning nor spoke to warn the wicked to turn from their wicked ways to save their lives. These same wicked men died in their sins, but their blood I’ll require at your hands.”

Thank you, thank you, Cedric! I so needed to hear this! You are so right on with every thing in this article! “….the unwillingness of people to even consider the facts and God’s word.” It is a life or death matter that they not ignore the warnings. I have to learn to let it go after I’ve warned…let go and let God do the rest. I do pray for all. I have written letters to, sent emails to, talked face to face with, on the phone with, via facebook with….and only one seems to care. One is better than none. I’ve always been a person who cares too much…even before I became born again. Anyway, God’s in control…and I pray. May Jesus come quickly. God Bless you and Cheryl and all your family abundantly.
You are not alone….and we must remember that we are fighting not against flesh and blood. I know it can it can be really frustrating! Thank you that with all boldness you speak His Word
You hit on a very important point.
“It appears that everyone that has spent the past decade ignoring the warnings are incapable of hearing them now. ”
Having made earlier spiritual decisions to ignore the truth or having accepted what others told them the truth was because that was an easier path to walk, they are impervious to reasoning or logic or even Bible verses.
It seems it will prayer that God will perform a sovereign act to open their eyes and ears to save them.
