My favourite Bible quote is movie-related.

Matthew 10:36 - And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

Used with great effect by the Minister in Breaker Morant as the prisoners are lead away to be shot by firing squid.

When I see Christians protesting against reproductive freedom I remember Psalm 137:9.

"Blessed is he who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks."

Actually .....

Remember, "blessed" means happy, not to receive a blessing. It's archaic 17th century speech.

The writer was consoling himself that the days of the Babylonians, who were holding the Jewish people captive at that time and who were notoriously cruel, were numbered and soon the Persians would conquer the Babylonians and free the Jews. Much as we saw in the conquest of Nazi Germany, the Persians took brutal revenge on the Babylonians, including, apparently, 'happily' killing their children as described.  To say, "Hey, you lot are soon going to face terrible times" is not the same thing as saying G-d will bless you for slaying babies.

Luke 6:31 "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

World-changing advice often found elsewhere.

Hillel the Elder, who died in Jerusalem about the time Jesus was entering adulthood, advised his students: "That which is hateful unto you inflict not upon another. That is the entirety of the Torah, the rest but explanation; go and learn."

Confucius 'is said' to have put it: "That which you desire not for yourself inflict not upon others."

So simple yet so difficult.

What I love about that verse is how Jesus flipped it from a negative to a positive.
Instead of refraining from doing to others that which we don't want done to us, he challenged us to DO for others as we wished they would do for us.
Simple words that can still change the world when applied.

One more from me for tonight:
"Through Him all things were made, and without Him nothing was made that has been made."  John 1:3

Ian Charleson's quote from Chariots of Fire

Quote
And where does the power come from, to see the race to its end? From within. Jesus said, "Behold, the Kingdom of God is within you. If with all your hearts, you truly seek me, you shall ever surely find me." If you commit yourself to the love of Christ, then that is how you run a straight race.

From the first SA zombie movie Ride The High Wind:

Quote
The robberies of the wicked shall destroy them; because they refuse to do judgment. The way of man is froward and strange: but as for the pure, his work is right.

Proverbs 21:7

He's not; he's skimming for verses which will make Jews and Christians look bad. Doesn't matter if he has to take them out of context to do so.  Bluesad

Yeah, like no one saw that coming, huh? But maybe the good parts will rub off on him.

I read the Bible when I was in jail in the hole. Twice! I  thought it was very contradictory. Before I actually read it, I DID believe, and was scared of, God. (I never believed in Satan). I had to go to holy roller church every Sunday (of course my Dad and Mary Jo never went). Those people are crazy. Speaking in tongues and s**t. The old lady, nice old gal, who usta drive us there, was fine on the way there, but on the way back she would take her hands off the steering wheel and say s**t like "Jesus will take us home!" Buggedout Ah. Coulda been worse. At least they didn't f**k with snakes.
I like Revelations-! That's like a scary horror/sci-fi movie!  Thumbup
I got nothing against Church, it's just not for me.

I enjoyed the Tao. I didn't read it all, but my brother Richie was really into it and would read and show stuff to me. He had these stones or something that had symbols on them-I don't know alot about it...but it was interesting. Really mystical.

The church has blown it, over and over, in terms of mirroring God to people very well.   Not always, and not throughout history all the time.  But yes, the church has blown it in many ways.

People are going to show up in a  thread like this to troll.    They are prisoners in the enemy's camp, not enemies themselves.
