The Son of God movie is being used by churches (including Catholic ones) as an outreach opportunity.  But, like the Passion, those of us who are fluent in the Bible and believe in the Biblical account were frustrated by the less-than-scriptural additions and the overly-dramatized scenes.

I have not promoted it, have you?  What are your views?  Get us thinking!

 Remember "End of the Spear"? Hey, I remember "The Ten Commandments" (1956 not 1923), "The Greatest Story Ever Told", "Ben Hur", "The Robe", etc. Christians have tried their hand at Biblically based films like "Wine of Morning" which used a wee bit of artistic license with the Gospel story. Can God use them? Sure. But they are  quickly old news. I've watched them and found they sometimes stirred my emotions and provoked conversations.
