| Racist and Omitting Key Material--illuminati like or almost like that
Two main problems with this movie out the ones that I've watched so far: 1. The American Caucasian race of the actors; this is a failing of almost every American biblical film of the day and it even happens today more times than not. The problem with that is that potential Christian converts believe a lie and make assertions that the religion is racist! Muslims say that the Christian Jesus is an American Caucasian and most of them are not. Many of them use this lie to mock/blaspheme Jesus and Christianity! Therefore, a Muslim is easily manipulated by using this lie. Jim Jones was able to draw some, because Jesus was always depicted as an American white man and the American white men was racist. His pitch--in turn--was to be multiracial. Even then, no one besides an Uncle Tom or a zealot in favor of another race wants to join a religion where no one looks like them. The bible truth makes Jesus a traditional Jew--which is one of the few races that look close to 50% white and 50% black. Honestly, I don't think this is a coincidence. So, why spread a lie that disperses and keeps people from studying the bible rather than a truth that leaves people without an applicable excuse? Unless you are a racist, what could your excuse be for not following a doctrine deemed by you as true if the human form of the Lord is 50% black and 50% white. 2. It omits key details-- such as parts of the Lord's prayer and Jesus' baptism--seemingly for no reason! It would only have taken an extra 1-2 minutes in both cases to get it right. Other than that, great!
