Film review: Agora

You missed out the films and shows displaying a blasphemous view of Jesus, most probably created by people who have never allowed themselves to try to form a relationship with Him.

There is definitely a growing trend (I think it may be linked to extreme left-wing politics, like communism, etc.) towards atheism amongst younger people, in the west and, sadly, if their only exposure of Christianity is negative, it leaves them without the option of forming a more spiritually enlightened view.

I did watch the series of programmes called "A History of Christianity", presented by Diarmud MacCulloch, which was good and, I thought, balanced.

(I especially liked the instalment concerning Russia's Red Square, where there had been an Orthodox church until it was demolished by Stalin. Directly after the fall of the Iron Curtain, the locals had the church re-built to a replica of the original.)

Politically, people are much easier to control if they drop the pesky belief that they have a soul and might even reach immortality. The drive for 'secularism' in administrative offices, such as they have in America and which trend has all but taken over here, is worrying. Such films as 'Agora' provide bulwark support for this trend through 'entertainment'.

Fortunately, the Church was founded by God and will not be destroyed. "Heaven and earth shall pass away but my words shall not pass away."

As the quote goes, 'if God is for us, who can be against us?'
