Church to show movies with nudity, pagan sacrifice
Leaders of Derby Cathedral, an Anglican church in England, say they are allowing their building to be used to screen films showing full female nudity, human sacrifice and graphic sex.
After all, itâ€™s nothing â€śGod hasnâ€™t seen before.â€ť
According to the U.K.â€™s Premier Christian Radio, several of the movies, which are part of the QUAD in Residence movie-screening series, are horror films â€śThe Wicker Manâ€ť and â€śDonâ€™t Look Now.â€ť
The cathedralâ€™s dean told the BBC the films wonâ€™t be â€śshowing God anything that he hasnâ€™t seen before.â€ť
Yes apparently the films they are showing are grotesque in the content they display. But is that that much worse than churches that heartily approve of Harry Potter, Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, or Avengers? All of those movies promote ideas that are antithetical to a biblical worldview. As Chris G P noted, public schools do the same thing.
God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods. How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah. Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked. They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course. I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes. Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations (Psalm 82).
He told Premier in a statement, â€śWe are looking forward to welcoming all those who want to enjoy these diverse special screenings and my hope is that it will encourage the people of Derby and Derbyshire to discover their cathedral."
Interesting reasoning...a way for people to discover the cathedral...what nonsense. Amazing who is preaching and teaching from the pulpit these days...even open homosexuals who truly believe they are born from above, and in Him, even though God Himself clearly condemns the acts against His natural order, and the lifestyle they have chosen and openly promote and live out. Seems that God's unchanging Word has become fluid and progressive; ever evolving with the desires and lusts of mankind.
This is very tragic. These sort of films should not be shown in any place of worship, and this is obviously the attempt of a liberal cathedral church to â€ś get people on seatsâ€ť by entertainment, not that this film (The Wicker Man) is at all entertaining.
In a somewhat backslidden period some years ago, I actually saw this film on the television.
It concerns a fairly obviously Christian policeman who visits a remote Scottish island to investigate a mysterious disappearance.
He is shocked to the core, to find out that the whole island is given over to organised paganism, led by the local â€ślairdâ€ť or squire.
The church is closed down, the small public elementary or primary school is brainwashing the children with pagan beliefs and practices, (sounds like a typical US public school!!). He protests vigorously, the islanders sabotage his plane, and he is finally offered up for sacrifice in a burning wicker man.
This is absolutely disgraceful, and the cathedral authorities in Derby (not Leeds) should be completely shamed. This is indeed the apostasy of the last days.
While God certainly has seen it before, none of the people there needed to be exposed to their pornography and other graphic evil movies. Words cannot express how evil and wrong this is that they are doing.
