SUMMARY / COMMENTARY:
*Play it to the Bone* (R) -- or to the skin.
And play it to the hilt in mockery of Jesus and the Scriptures. The worst influence of the mockery of Jesus and the Scriptures in this movie is that the mockery was presented in ways that "occasional" Christians (sometimes called "sheeple") may believe: they may believe that the movie used good adherance to the Scriptures because there were a couple popluar and accurate (token?) "Christian" cliches which seemed ot give the movie an air of Scriptural credibility.
An example of convincing use of the Scriptures was when one of the dueling duo spoke God's name in vain and said "Lord forgive me for using your name in vain." To ask forgiveness of our sins is a proper and accurate adherance to His expectations of us. But this "trick" was presented amidst many improper and even distorted uses of the Scriptures. One Scriptural distortion in particular was when one of the dueling duo said he left the church because everyone was doing so much of the judging thing: the typical "Ju-udge not lest ye be ju-udged" attempt to use the Scriptures against Christians. If there is any good to be found in this finding, it is the opportunity to set the record straight. [Eph. 5:6]
Matthew 7:1 states "Judge not, that ye be not judged." And John 7:24 states "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment." Matthew 7:1 seems to support the allusion that we are not to judge at all IF Delphi tactics are used to conveniently call only on that SMALL piece of the total of what Jesus was saying. The total of what Jesus told us DOES NOT tell us not to judge at all -- it tells us not to judge with kangaroo court rationale. Look at John 7:24. There, Jesus TELLS us to judge, but to do so righteously. Righteously means to use the Truth of the Word. Judge we must else we could never tell the good from the bad, proper from improper, righteousness from evil....... But does this movie explain that? N-o-o-o-o. I can't wait until someone tries to fire the "Don't cast the first stone" maneuver at us. I am ready. Remove the splinter (the lies, distortions, false teachings, counterfeitings, etc.) from your own eye, then you will see clearly to remove the speck from the eyes of others (help them know the Truth) [Matt 7:5].
Intercourse, including heterosexual, digital [1 Thess. 4:3], and lesbian [Rom. 1:26] are there and WITH full nudity. Sexual invitations, beggings, dress, and expressions abound in this movie [1 Cor. 6:18-20]. The listing in Findings/Scoring will give you more detail. And the most foul of the foul words was presented at least 64 times along with at least 50 uses of the three/four letter word vocabulary [Matt. 12:36-37]. And God's name in vain was spoken at least 16 times, 7 times with the four letter expletive [Deut. 5:11]. Insults to an individual [Prov. 10:18] solely because of his homosexual experiences, many additional mockeries of Jesus and the Scriptures, and full rear male nudity gave an inescapable darkness to this movie [Ps. 101:3]. There are many, many other examples of immoral programming revealed in the Findings/Scoring listing.
