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.

Eat,Pray,Love -A movie about a pilgrimage to sacred sites

Recommended Posts

A good movie about taking a spiritual renewal(pilgrimage) to spiritual sites,is Eat,Pray,Love with Julia Roberts-has anybody else seen this movie and she travels to 3 countries -italy,india,and Bali. This movie shows her adventures and her encounter with spiritual leaders as well and it has some really great scenery in it also. What did you think of this movie or did it leave you a bit cold as far as her(roberts)having a relationship with God?

I saw the movie, and I have to say that there was very little in it that pointed to God as I know Him.

 

The film seemed to be focussed on a journey of self discovery, which may be exactly what the author and many people in our world need, but at no point did I see her take a step towards a faith in God.

 

So my opinion of the film is, like many movies, it delivers on entertainment value, is funny in parts, has something to teach about humanity and human relationships, butas far as the spiritual value it was very lightweight.

I read the book but I have not watched the movie fully. I loved the book as she travels to three different places in the quest to find a way to connect with her true inner self. I was so taken by the way she travels and the way she describes the things. It's one of the best books I have read. I will watch the movie soon. Thanks for the thread.
