Movie Reminder.

CBMIA posterDon’t forget folks…  tomorrow night (Tuesday, June 30th) we are hosting the next installment of our popular documentary film series with “Crips and Bloods: Made in America” at Legion in Williamsburg.  We hope to see you all out there!  And please spread the word if you can.  There will be a suggested donation of $10 at the door, which will also automactially enter you into the raffle.  It starts at 8pm…  can’t wait to see you!

Oh yeah, and for those of you asking…  here’s what Crip Walking looks like.  You may want to mute the sound if foul language offends you.

    Never mind the foul language offending me, it should offend you!!!!!

    Ephesians 5:4
    Colossians 3:8

    You should read you bible more often.

    1 Thessalonians 5:21

    I can’t tell the difference between you people and the rest of the world, you need to repent and seek the face of your savior, search for truth and put aside such foolishness.

    Man.
    I don’t even get it.
    I love you.
    But come on.
    Does this give glory to God at all?
    AT ALL?

    What does this have to do with God in the least?
    Nothing, that’s what.

    Growing up surrounded by bloods and crips, I learned nothing but hatred for God and to blame Him for everything. Why in the WORLD would you encourage Christians to watch this?

      Have you seen the film? It was absolutely heartbreaking. It went a long way to show how turning your back on the poor and the “hopeless” only creates more misery and more injustice. Christ spent a great deal of time speaking out on these issues- He also commanded us to love everyone, regardless of their “hatred for God and blame for everything”.
      Since we are all God’s children, and He loves us all EQUALLY, films like this call to our attention things that we may have not known about, or things we may not even care to know about. Glory is given to God when these walls are torn down and we realize that we have a long way to go when it comes to justice in our society.

    I never said not to love them.
    But I did say that this film had nothing to do with God. The video on how to ‘C-walk’ didn’t either.

    • Paolo says:

      Love is an action; not something you just say you do in words. And this film, along with the message of it, has everything to do with God.
      And no, maybe C-walking doesn’t have anything to do with God, but it’s okay to laugh and smile once in a while. If it’s not your cup of tea, then that’s okay. I’m sure there are one or two things you’ve done or seen in your life that had nothing to do with God either.

    Also.

    2 Corinthians 6:14-18

    We don’t ignore the unGodly completely.
    Don’t mistake me.
    But, by no means are we to be best friends with them or tolerate a sinful lifestyle.

    Jesus ‘hung out’ with sinners, but not how you may think He did.
    When He ‘hung out’ with them, He told them to repent and stop sinning and He refused to live or act the way they did.
    Sinners, tax collectors, etc. didn’t love Him because He was so awesome rad and cool and wasn’t like those Christians who never smoked or had sex. No, they loved Him because, even though He was straight forward and brought their sin to light and refused to tolerate their sin, He was the only one humble enough to bring them that truth despite who they were and they respected Him for that and held Him in high regard.

    So, yes. LOVE THEM.
    But love them enough to tell them the TRUTH.
    Not the lie from hell that Jesus accepts their sin as okay.
    Because if He did, why in the WORLD did He die to wash it away if it was ‘no big deal’?

    In love brother,
    Katie

      I’m not sure if you listen to our sermons online or if you attend Revolution here in person, but if you’d like to hear our take on “Repentance” then you can listen to that here. I’m not sure we’re going to agree on one another’s readings of what this verse means and what that one means, but that’s okay. We don’t have to. Keep loving those around you and serving your community, and we’ll keep doing the same in ours.
