TV cashing in on religion


Bill Pullman and Natascha McElhone star in the new miniseries “Revelations,” which debuts Wednesday on NBC.

LOS ANGELES – The Gospel according to Mel, as the TV industry views it, is that religion sells.

With Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ” ranked among the 10 highest-grossing movies ever and with glowing visions of “The Da Vinci Code” profits before them, TV networks are embracing a newfound faith.

A miniseries about the Book of Revelation airs next week, and shows about a Catholic priest probing the supernatural and an Episcopalian minister who converses with God are on the drawing board.

Traditionally soft-focused spirituality, exemplified by “Touched by an Angel” and “Joan of Arcadia,” is giving way to programs rooted in specific religions and their elements. ...

Popular Christianity? I suppose one could: that, since more people identify with Catholicism than they do Christianity, but a Catholic priest would be the last person I would have to explain the Book of Revelation.

Want to know about Revelation? Gil Rugh has a whole series about it, SermonAudio. Get all the details, use:

http://www.sermonaudio.com/source_detail.asp?sourceid=soundwords

And look through the sermons and you should find probably all them for the Book of Revelation.

Who are Not True Christians?
What is a true Christian, over and against those who are not true Christians.

Proving that they are no Christians in their Hearts Who are Arminians, Anabaptists, Socinians, Romanists, Antinomians, Erastians, and the like, in their Heads

by Rev. George Gillespie
Scottish Commissioner To the Assembly of Divines At Westminster.

WHETHER A SOUND HEART AND AN UNSOUND HEAD CAN CONSIST TOGETHER? AND VICE VERSA; OR, WHETHER TRUTH AND HOLINESS BE NOT INSEPARABLE COMPANIONS?

...Fourthly, Consider what the Apostle saith, 2 Tim. 3.16,17. He tells us of four ends and uses of Scripture. The first two are commonly referred to doctrinals, the last two to practicals.

The Scripture is profitable "for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works." If any of these be wanting, a Christian is not perfect, so much as in the perfection of parts. He is but half a Christian who is an orthodox believer, if he be not practical also; and he is but half a Christian who is practical, if he be not an orthodox believer. These ends of Scripture do not consist nor stand sure one without another.

"When one is a good debater, he has studied the issues so much that no matter what side he takes on a given subject he would be able to win the argument; and he could do it “on the fly.” The true Precisionist thinks this way about every text that he teaches or preaches.

That is why the Puritans were such astounding doctrinal scholars and exemplary practical preachers. That is why 500 years later, they are known as precisionists. In 200 years, when you and all others preachers today are pushing up daisies, will historians of the future deem you a precisionist of this period? Or will they be using illustrations of what not to do by appealing to your ministry?

Where oh where has the Precisionist gone?

They’ve left us all here to writhe, to wallow and stir in our pews for so long and finally spiritually die."

Where Oh Where has the Precisionist Gone?
By Dr. C. Matthew McMahon

Cont.,

Precisionists, then, are men marked by a thorough consideration or minute measurement of small factual details. Puritans are Precisionists. It is because they are Precisionists that Puritans were, in fact, Puritans. Without being a Precisionist, one could never be a true Puritan. Some of the greater “histories” written about the Puritans use the label doctrinal Puritans for the term “Precisionists”. However, the phrase “doctrinal puritans” is less descriptive than scholars would like, and it would be more helpful to use the term “precisionist.”

If sports require the utmost precision in order for any given athlete to compete well, and it is a man-made game, how much more precision should there be in handling aright the Word of God? Those men throughout the history of the church that God has given as gifts to His church have been given a solemn duty to be precise in translating and teaching God’s Word to God’s chosen people. God will not bless sloppy work. God will not use sloppy work to spark revival. God will not condone sloppy pastoral study and preaching.

The Puritan was known as a doctrinal precisionist. Their sermons are dense, and thick and rich with the vibrancy of a thoughtful and skilled mediation on the Scriptures."

Amen!

Where Oh Where has the Precisionist Gone?
By Dr. C. Matthew McMahon

Ephesians 4:14 – “…we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine…”

1 Timothy 4:6 – “If you instruct the brethren in these things, you will be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished in the words of faith and of the good doctrine which you have carefully followed.”

1 Timothy 4:13 – “Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.”

1 Timothy 4:16 – “Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.”

Elizabethan Puritanism was a watershed time in religious history. The Reformation had birthed a soundness of doctrine that had been unparalleled since the time of the early Fathers, such as Augustine and Irenaeus, and certain men throughout history at scattered times and places, like John Wickliffe or John Hus.
