Just to let everyone know...here in the US, "The Nativity Story" about the birth of Jesus will be hitting theatres December 1, 2006. We should all plan to see it opening weekend and let Hollywood know what kind of movies they should be making.

Mary, read about the director and why (in her own words) she made the movie.
I guess someone like you would enjoy the movie.

John, I thought it was a great movie, myself. I didn't see anything "feminist" about it--and I am a feminist! :) To me, it just made me appreciate our Lord and His earthly family even more.

Nativity Story is a horrible movie that duped ignorant Christians.
It is a feminist movie. It was directed by a feminists (athiest) who wanted to show Mary as an exploited woman of the times. Joseph of course was shown as a feminized man and an idiot. Mary was portrayed as being forced to enter an unloved marriage showing Joseph purchasing Mary as a wife.
THE JOKE WAS ON ON THOSE NAIVE AND IGNORANT CHRISTAINS WHO BELIEVE IT WAS A CHRISTIAN MOVIE.
SCORE ONE OF MANY FOR HOLLYWOOD AND ZERO OF MANY FOR THE CHRISTIAN FOOLS WHO ONCE AGAIN THOUGHT THEY COULD FIND COMMON GROUND WITH EVIL!!!

The Nativity in itself Is Great. Better than the carnal celebrations with jingle bells, white Christmas, j - b - rock, s - clause( fakey - clause ), parties with alcoh drinks etc.

Hollywood cannot imitate anything that is Christian.

First time here. Wow! Before we condemn Hollywood, let's remember that they used to say nothing good could come out of Nazareth also. Plus, I think Jesus called everyday sinful people (the disciples) in His time on earth to tell His story. Hmmm. I wonder if He might still do that today.

Alan, I gave what I thought was a fair opinion regarding the question. It was not given with the intention of starting a debate and taking the subject down a different path. We've discussed this before and have different opinions regarding whether the term 'born-again' should be used so let's just leave it there, please.

Alan, your question to emg ... 'Who is to judge whether the church member is a Christian or a born-again Christian?' once again shows your dislike of the term 'born-again' (a term used by Jesus b.t.w). My comment is that if no-one at all in any particular church were wise enough to know the difference then probably none of them are born-again.

Perhaps churches should each send one born-again Christian to see the film and then listen to his/her comments and opinion regarding whether or not the other members would benefit from seeing it. It would be a shame for huge amounts of money to be spent by Christians if it were a poor film, but without someone going from each group we will never know.

**No thank you HOLLYWOOD!!Can't you see, Hollywood is exploiting Christians for money. **
No chance that the screenwriter, producer, director, et al had better intentions than you give them credit for, huh?

HOLLYWOOD??? Are we stupid or what? Friendship with the world, is emnity with God? Since when do we go the Hollywood to understand the birth of Jesus? Can't any one read anymore...we have to be entertained and with popcorn too! So now faith comes by seeing? I guess the world is being pre-prepped for the anti-christ. Visual effects is becomming everything. No thank you HOLLYWOOD!!Can't you see, Hollywood is exploiting Christians for money. That's all it is.

**The Passion of Christ, was really good and Mel Gibson done really good directing it, I didn't like the end where it showed part of the mans hip/thigh.**
According to the Gospels, Jesus rose from the dead leaving His graveclothes behind. Therefore the glimpse of hip and thigh were perfectly Biblical, and therefore perfectly proper.

** Nothing can touch "The Ten Commandments". That is one movie that you can follow along with in the bible**
There are actually a few errors:
1. Moses first asks Pharaoh for the Hebrews to be allowed to leave for 3 days to sacrifice to God.
2. The Passover then and now took place at the FULL moon, not half moon, as the movie shows.
3. It took all night for the "strong east wind" to part the sea, though the cinematic license was probably necessary.

Who wrote this story and who is acting in it? They can make all the movies they want, but of all the movies about the bible I've seen, Nothing can touch "The Ten Commandments". That is one movie that you can follow along with in the bible. The Passion of Christ, was really good and Mel Gibson done really good directing it, I didn't like the end where it showed part of the mans hip/thigh. but I look forward to watch this movie.

This movie has a web-site. We are not allowed to give URLs here, but you all can probably guess what it is. Use your favorite search engine, if you're not sure.
I've visited the site, and so far, I see nothing objectionable. It even refers to "a miraculous pregnancy."

Hollywood is going to make any kind of movie it wants to, even though attack movies against Christianity invariably fail at the box office.
