We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. A.W. Tozer
Therefore let God-inspired Scripture decide between us; and on whichever side be found doctrines in harmony with the word of God, in favor of that side will be cast the vote of truth. --Basil of Caesarea
Once you learn to discern, there's no going back. You will begin to spot the lie everywhere it appears.

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service. 1 Timothy 1:12

The Last Sin Eater

This is a movie I highly recommend.  We saw it when it came out in the theaters in early 2007, and then purchased the DVD when it was released.  A couple days ago we sat down to watch the movie for the first time in at least a year.
Let me tell you about the story from the DVD back:
Cadi Forbes is not only mourning the recent loss of her beloved grandmother, but she also feels responsible for the earlier death of her little sister.  In her quest for redemption, Cadi seeks out the one man she feels can take away her sin - the Sin Eater.  But when she uncovers a dark secret about the mystical practice, it threatens to divide her family and her community.  Ultimately, the young girl discovers the truth about absolution.
This story will tug at the heart-strings, and has some powerful messages, not the least of which is the Gospel, which overtakes all the Celtic superstition of the people of the story.
If you haven’t seen this movie yet, be sure you put it on your list of things to do!

Glenn, I read the book many years ago and loved it!! I didn't know they made it into a movie.... I'll have to check it out!

I didn't know it was a book until I watched the movie :oD

Then again, I rarely read novels, so that's likely how I missed it.

I agree that was a great movie! I am so glad that God provided a sufficient "sin-eater", Jesus Christ.
