FAITH UNDER FIRE
NEW MOVIE: JESUS IS PRODUCT OF MARY BEING RAPED
‘Blasphemous’ film to discount Bible miracles
WND reader Dale Ulmer is among those already outraged, saying, “Anyone involved in the production of this film will face the wrath of God. I will NOT watch this film and I would personally like to write to these people and tell them they are treading in waters with no life preserver unless they cancel this film because God’s judgment will be harsh if they choose to mock him. They have no real proof of what they are suggesting, however the Bible has never failed in its record of historical events. Archaeologists and scientists are discovering proof of biblical accounts, just as it was written.”
In a previous interview with Fleming, Verhoeven spoke of Jesus in these terms:
“If you look at the man, it’s clear you have a person who was completely innovative in the field of ethics. My own passion for Jesus came when I started to realize that. It’s not about miracles, it’s about a new set of ethics, an openness towards the world, which was anathema in a Roman-dominated world. I believe he was crucified because they felt that politically, he was a dangerous person whose following was getting bigger and bigger. Jesus’ ideals are about the utopia of human behavior, about how we should treat each other, how we should step into the shoes of our enemy.”
Muse Productions will reportedly be producing the new film, and Roger Avary, who won an Oscar for co-writing 1994′s “Pulp Fiction,” is on board to adapt the book into a screenplay.
No date has been mentioned yet for when the film is targeted for release.
Joe Kovacs, author of the brand-new book, “The Divine Secret: The Awesome and Untold Truth About Your Phenomenal Destiny”, as well as the No. 1 best-seller “Shocked by the Bible: The Most Astonishing Facts You’ve Never Been Told,” is executive news editor for WND.
