September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”
September 20, 2017, 04:32:32 am Christian40 says: "The most popular Hepatitis B vaccine is nothing short of a witch’s brew including aluminum, formaldehyde, yeast, amino acids, and soy. Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

Five films that will make 2014 the year of the Bible

yeah right Roll Eyes

"The Bible narrative has always been one heck of a story. It reads like a mix of action thriller, period drama, romance novel and, in more apocalyptic parts, like pure fantasy. The gripping narrative sections of the text are part of the reason the Bible is the bestselling book of all time.

But in 2014, we'll discover if the good book is as captivating on the modern-day silver screen as it is in print.

This year, big studios such as Sony and Lionsgate are entering the fray by releasing films of, well, biblical proportions. To wit:

“Son of God,” 20th Century Fox, February

Reality TV pioneer Mark Burnett and his wife, actress Roma Downey, have taken footage from their History Channel series “The Bible” and partnered with 20th Century Fox to create “Son of God,” a film about Jesus' life that will doubtlessly attract churchgoing Americans. As the first film on this list to release, it may be a helpful box office barometer for the others.

“Noah,” Regency Enterprises, November

A flood of publicity already has been created around “Noah” and its impressive $130 million budget. The cast includes Russell Crowe, as the sailor himself, as well as Anthony Hopkins, Jennifer Connelly and Emma Watson. Darren Aronofsky (“Black Swan”) directed the movie. If the trailer is any indication, it should be visually stunning while taking massive artistic liberties.

“Heaven is for Real,” Sony Pictures, April

Though not technically a biblical movie, “Heaven is for Real” will likely riff on popular Bible themes such as heaven, Jesus and salvation. The film is based on the New York Times bestselling book by the same name and stars Greg Kinnear, Kelly Reilley and Thomas Haden Church. This story of a little boy's life-after-death experience is not so coincidentally scheduled to release just before Easter.

“Exodus,” 20th Century Fox, December

20th Century Fox has kept a tight lid on Ridley Scott's “Exodus.” All we know is the film is an adaptation of the biblical story of the ancient Israelite people's liberation from Egypt. Christian Bale will star as Moses, and Sigourney Weaver will co-star. Critics won't be able to help comparing it to the 1956 movie “The Ten Commandments” starring Charlton Heston. The question will be whether this film can duplicate the classic's success.

“Mary, Mother of Christ,” Lionsgate Films, December

The long-awaited prequel to “The Passion of The Christ” is scheduled to arrive before Christmas after a long set of delays. The cast includes the late Peter O'Toole, Sir Ben Kinglsey, Julia Ormond, and 16-year-old Israeli newcomer Odeya Rush as the holy mother herself. The hefty cast combined with a serious budget from Lionsgate and the backing of several Christian notables, including mega-church pastor Joel Osteen, who gets an executive-producer credit, give this movie serious potential.

The uptick in biblical movies is a testament to the ongoing power of those ancient narratives and reminds us Hollywood is driven by money more than agendas. The Bible's stories are an enduring draw, so Hollywood is doing what it does best — turning a buck by giving audiences what they want.

In this way, the film industry is a mirror reflecting what society desires: sex, violence and great stories with a touch of God in the mix. In 2014, we'll find out just how much they crave the latter."

Yeah, they seem to be almost flooding the 2014 movie theater market with these "Christian" movies.

It was only 30 years ago when Churchianity had enough discernment with these Hollywood "Christian" movies(ie-80's "Last Temptation of Christ" was exposed through and through by them). But since the turn of the century especially, it seems like anything with the "Christian" label is accepted as such.

Lumo Project is a ground breaking, multi-language Biblical resources that is set to transform the way in which people engage, discover, and study the New Testament by redefining the standard of visual Bible media.

Four feature-length films will immerse the viewer into 1st Century Palestine, and revolutionise the way in which we experience the Bible. Stories that changed the world: the dramatic action of Jesus’ birth amidst the rule of Herod, His teaching in the temples and on the streets, the parables He told, through to the agonising crucifixion and subsequent resurrection, can now been experienced accurately on screen for the first time, according to the 4 gospel accounts.

This is now being touted within my Bible app - along with the all other films mentioned here. I'm not sure even KJV Iin these apps can be trusted much longer!
