The Case for Christ: The Movie

John Armstrong has reviewed the recently released The Case for ChristrThe Movie on DVD.  He gives it high marks as a film and as a DVD, which has several interesting sounding extra features.


It sounds like a fairly boring documentary, but I hope that they managed to get some of the more engaging parts of the book translated well to the screen.  

I read this book years ago, and, if they simply video the interviews from that are described in the book, it would be an effective, if dry, movie.  Good christian documentaries need to learn from the bad ones, which cover up their poor research and lack of "facts" with flashy effects and dramatic music.

I have seen it and I thought it was quite good. It was not like a movie per se. It was a documentary unless they have shot feature film and I don't know about it. Again movies are highly subjective and appeal to the taste of person's mental state at the time. It is harder to build a film market without the backing of regular finance at one's disposal. It is one of the reasons why I admire Tyler Perry so much. He built a very strong audience from his stage plays and then successfully transition into movies with that audience following. A great strategy. I sense that many Christian filmmakers do not like talking about him. I think it is out of envy more so than anything. Instead humbling themselves and asking the Lord to show them what He wants them to do.

Hi Brethren in Christ Jesus and Christ Nanak Dev Ji,

I have put over 230 Videos on Youtube; 26 rendering Exposition of the Gnostic Gospel of St.Thomas, 68 in Punjabi on Satguru Nanak Dev Ji, Christ Jesus and other Indian religious aspects and the rest on the expositions of the important Parables of the New Testament and my articles. These Videos would give thorough understanding of all the aspects of Christianity and Sikhism with introductions to Judaism, Hinduism and Real Islam of Allah.

Gospel is received by grace of God and not by works. My lectures are free. University professors and the dog collared clerics, they hold monopoly over religion and they are like the dogs sitting in the manger not allowing any one else to eat the spiritual food. If you like my views, please pass my email to others interested in Gospel. Gospel is for the solitary twice born seekers and not for the psychic hirelings of Mammon for they cannot preach the Gospel of God but rather teach the sugar-coated sermons of Mammon. You do not accept payment in Mammon if you want Gospel Treasures from God.

My expositions are original in spirit that is mostly unknown to the people of the West. My challenge may seem very odd to most of you but just listen to them for the curiosity’s sake.

Here are couple on Easter:-

1. Why the Fig Tree was made to wither:- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8m235LjFOU
2. Why call Easter? – Part 1 :- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MsTVHGd4gR8
3. Why call Easter? – Part 2 :- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wvkneHo5m0

I can explain the Parables in details in Lectures and the whole New Testament, I can explain in a couple of weeks.

Any body interested in producing Documentaries, I can vet the scripts or produce suitable ones for FREE. Search my videos under nijjhar Christianity Sikhism or link is under my signatures.

I have produced similar videos in Punjabi, the language in which the Second anointed Christ Nanak Dev Ji preached Sikhism or Real Islam. Remember that a Gurmukh is a True Mussallman of the type of Bhagat Kabir Ji, Pir Mian Mir Ji, etc but not these Mohammedans who proclaim they to be Mussallmans. They are mostly Kafirs or infidels. A Sikh being a student of spiritual knowledge, he is perceived by what comes out of his mouth and not by his turban and beard.

Third Khalsa Panth was to use sword power to sort out the stubborn sons of Satan.

Gnostics are "seekers" of religious knowledge and we take no one for his word.
We believe each individual receives "His Word" through "grace of God".

Our Discussions are open minded and friendly. Meetings are open to all and they are "FREE".

Christ (Saint) Thomas states, "Why should I fast, what sin have I committed and
Why should I pray, what wrong have I done".
