S. Taylor Thanks for the encouragement to read:

I did a quick google search and found this reference _ PLEASE I have no idea of if this site is good or bad, just it has a copy, assuming it has been tampered with of what Tozer said

Correction: Pharoah perished in the Red Sea - in DeMille's version (The 10 Commandments) he lived to go home to his queen, and btw if I remember correctly the movie doesn't go thorough all of the commandments
Don't Count...the article I referenced was from the John Ankerberg site so you might look over it, as well as the second article is by an ex-catholic who has a wholesome dislike for the Romish Church It's worth reading as well. I should point out I never saw Gibson's movie.
I enjoyed Cecil B. DeMille Bible movies, but yes, the Book is much better than any movie.
This is weak. We have to always remember that supporting these films helps pay for 99% of the garbage they produce that doesn't have God attached to it. Hollywood is taking us for the weak Christians that we are. Slap Jesus on it and we'll buy it. Sorry, but I don't need that machine telling or selling me any of their garbage. My Bible is accurate enough.

Still haven't figured out what films you would think are Biblically accurate. Jim from Lincoln, Mel Gibson's film was filled with lots of extra Biblical Catholic myths.(ie Raven plucked out eye of unrepentant thief)It was a thoroughly Catholic film.
Considering there is still some controversy over Mel Gibson's movie, "The Passion of Christ," which by John Ankerberg's account was an accurate movie, [URL=http://www.johnankerberg.org/Articles/Passion/PDF-files/More%20Questions%20about%20The%20Passion.pdf]]]More Questions about "The Passion of Christ (PDF)[/URL], there seems to be a common opinion, one thing it wasn't -- that's entertaining. There was a much problem with the antisemitism Of the movie maker Mel Gibson, q.v., [URL=http://www.biblebb.com/files/passion6.htm]]]The Passion of the Christ â€” a Film by Mel Gibson*[/URL] then the movie itself? One should go to source, The Bible, to make sure a film is accurate, and it never carries the baggage of heresy
