Christforums

.... an orthodox (true and correct when contrasted with Liberal theology) Protestant forum whose members espouse the Apostolic doctrines in the Biblical theologies set forth by Augustine, Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin and John Knox etc. We do not "argue" with nor do we solicit the membership of people who espouse secular or cultic ideologies. We believe that our conversations are to be faith building and posts that advance heretical or apostate thinking will be immediately deleted and the poster permanently banned from the forum. This is a Christian Protestant community for people to explore the traditional theologies of Classical Protestantism.

Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Lucifer Movie

Recommended Posts

I know it is weird but it is true. There is a movie, a series actually, called Lucifer. The first time I heard about it I told myself that the world was coming to an end. However, after reading a preview online about the movie, I realised that it had nothing to do with end times or even religion. It is an investigative movie. We, however, have the main character being immortal, has the ability to hypnotise others and purports to be the devil. Basically, the plot is that he comes to earth and sets up a bar. He is overwhelmed by the earthly joys and is not willing to go back to hell. He starts to help a detective in her investigative duties. At the end of the day, he falls in love and becomes mortal. I like to think that the producers wanted a title that would raise eyebrows, leading to a greater audience. Would you watch such a movie?

I've never even heard of this movie before but the plot sounds like they wanted to humanize and justify the idea of evil. I personally think that the idea of someone who was once bad, can become good is kind of hopeful. Like, a lot of people out there who are sinners can be saved when they find His love. According to the title, we are speaking about the devil here but still, it's an interesting idea to me.

The title would be an instant turn-Off Not a turn-on. I wouldn't bother with it. The Biblical reality is that Lucifer lost his standing in heaven as the most beautiful angel. He became satan and will eventually end up in lake of fire and won't be going anywhere. Since the movie has Lucifer ending up in a bar, it's kind of fitting. It's the alcohol that people consume that ruins lives, causes accidents, the abuse that happens as a result of. Of course he wouldn't want to go back to hell. And to make a good movie -- there is the romantic part.
