If you are a Christian, believe in a loving God and in spiritual things, you should be concerned about the upcoming movie "The Golden Compass." I would go into greater detail about why you shouldn't support this movie; however, http://www.snopes.com/politics/religion/compass.asp has already done the work for me. Please view this link! To say just a little, this movie is based on a trilogy for children that has won many awards. The author is an athiest and wants to turn children against God. As you will read, in the end of the third book in the trilogy, a young Adam and Eve actually kill God. If you watch the trailer to the movie http://www.snopes.com/politics/religion/compass.asp you will see how this looks like it would be a good movie. But please read the snopes link above to see why it surely isn't good in any sense of the word. As you will read, the author hopes that after children watch this movie (which is based on the first book- the most innocent of the three books in the series) they will want the all the books in the trilogy as a Christmas gift. Scary! Children are the future and if they turn against God and against spiritual things I am scared.
Let us trust in God and remember that He is loving and that He has a plan for the happiness of His children!
"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths."
President Gorden B. Hinckley, Prophet of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (often known as "Mormons") said,
"I believe without equivocation or reservation in God, the Eternal Father. He is my Father, the Father of my spirit, and the Father of the spirits of all men. He is the great Creator, the Ruler of the Universe. He directed the creation of this earth on which we live. In His image man was created. He is personal. He is real. He is individual. He has "a body of flesh and bones as tangible as man's." (Doctrine and Covenants 130:22- scriptures of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints)
--- I also believe in God. I know that He loves me and knows me. I feel His love when I pray. I know that Jesus is the Christ and my Savior and Redeemer. I have hope in this life because of His loving sacrifice on my behalf. I want to live worthy to return to live with my Father in Heaven and my Savior Jesus Christ after this life. I know God and Jesus Christ live and love me (and you)!
