I would be interested to hear people’s comments on my feeble attempt to produce something – https://fletchergreg.wordpress.com/the-biblical-gospel-of-the-kingdom-of-god/. Whilst I agree with what you say about Red Letter Christians, the problem is a circular one in that every so often we have a ‘new’ movement, whether on social issues, church planting, renewal, spiritual gifts, moral issues, politics, evangelism, prayer, small groups, church growth, advocacy, etc, we never seem to get it right and integrate all them as part of a reproducible discipling movement, based on the whole Scriptures.

Two members of Red Letter Media sit in front of a red curtain and offer thoughts and insight on a film that they both enjoy.

The Rev John Parker and the teaching of transgenderism is an example when he discovered that the diocese and bishop supports the indoctrination of children. It was of course CS Lewis who points out that Jesus’s words are actually much scarier than Paul’s, and I’m very happy to have Paul too!

Surely you can see that, because there is no evidence, there can never be uniform understanding, and therefore what you are all trying to understand simply will not stand up to serious scrutiny, any more than trying to establish historical veracity about what Moses said or did. They have just taken other biblical words less seriously and, in some cases, refused to take them at all. The potential for division and ongoing conflict that this has brought about, has meant that it seems wise for me to leave and give the church the opportunity to recruit someone who has a commitment to remaining in fellowship within the Church of England for longer than I can. Another subsection of Best of the Worst includes the "Black Spine Edition" where the group randomly selects VHS tapes which are missing informational or identification labels on the side of the cassette. While Stoklasa had published other video reviews of several Star Trek films before that, his The Phantom Menace and subsequent Star Wars prequel reviews were praised for both content and presentation.

If you don’t believe me, read Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7). The company was formed by Stoklasa in 2004, while he was living in Scottsdale, Arizona, but is now based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (as of 2020). Jesus didnt explicitly condemn same-sex sex, at least as recorded in the Gospels, therefore He didnt condemn same-sex sex and neither should the church today. Tim Heidecker, who hosts a satiric movie review show On Cinema, makes a cameo in episode 37 as the owner of the VCR repair shop who bequeaths employment to Jay and Mike.[32]. Last month the Cannabis Control Commission approved a policy that would create two types of delivery licenses: a “marijuana delivery operator,” with the ability to buy products wholesale and sell them on their own, and a “marijuana courier,” where the operator could charge a fee to make deliveries from retailers and dispensaries. This is the acrimonious disagreements as I now witness with little agreement on Scriptures and some simply ignoring Jesus Christ whilst pretending to be Christians (pretending because their actions directly contradict the meaning of the word Christian). We just choose to make the words works and life, death and resurrection of Jesus the centre of our faith, to not read the Bible in a flat way or to pretend it is innerant. Former child star Macaulay Culkin made a guest appearance in a 2018 episode reviewing Hackers, and has continued to recur in both this series as well as Best of the Worst. Grace.

I only make reference to the sexuality issue in proportion to the prominence it has been given.

Half in the Bag is a regularly released series in which Stoklasa and Bauman review films in a more traditional format, albeit with a haphazard and fourth wall breaking overarching plot. He went on in the video to somehow make the connection between a plain cup and what he calls, “A war on Christmas.” He encouraged other Christians to spread the video and protest the red cups. [7] The review took between seven and ten days to complete. Juxtaposed with the colorful personality descriptions they give for the characters Han Solo and C-3PO, Stoklasa's friends are unable to come up with similarly definite descriptions for the Phantom Menace characters Qui-Gon Jinn and Padmé Amidala. Given that we trust John’s translation of Jesus’ words, which can probably be fairly free at times, why shouldn’t we trust his teaching about the consequences of Jesus’ words? In fact, the later apostolic teaching about Jesus is presented very strongly in continuity with the teaching of Jesus. One consequence of this is a common but bizarre assertion that Jesus was not particularly religious—or that the main people he had a problem with were the religious people.

Numerous other series have been produced by RedLetterMedia, including several review-based web series (Half in the Bag, Best of the Worst, and re:View), short comedies (The Nerd Crew) and web series (The Grabowskis, Previously Recorded). Andrew Wilson deals with this deftly: “The only time Jesus drew a line, it was religious people who were on the other side.” Well, since pretty much everyone in the Mediterranean world in the first century was religious, including a certain circumcised, Torah-observant, festival-keeping Jewish Messiah, that’s not a particularly striking claim. 96 comments. Videos from the channel have been featured on the Red Letter Media website alongside other Red Letter Media content, and the channel has been referenced in numerous Half in the Bag and Best of the Worst episodes. Stoklasa's reviews have been considered part of an emerging art form that hybridize mashup with video essays, as they use a combination of footage from the movie in question and other related sources. “….in the gospels, Jesus is mostly presented as a fulfilment of such a vision, not a contradiction to it.” Agreed. My friend John Allister commented (on a previous edition of this post): Added to which, it presupposes a crazy notion of translation. Campolo is wrong that the main issue for Christians in America is inequality, or poverty, or discrimination.

Hope you are flourishing [27], However, the reviews have also been criticized by Star Wars fans. If we believe that the scripture is God-breathed then everything is red letter. Stoklasa stated that this series would not replace the Plinkett reviews. Hello Peter, Because he is portrayed as insane, the Plinkett shtick "legitimates our nerd-rage by literalizing it". I find the whole thing more than wearying as it is little more than regurgitation, as you say, neo Marcionism. I still have a couple of his books somewhere, which may or may not reveal how much he has moved in his understanding and application of the whole bible. Not that SH would have been confused with NW in those days , hello Paul Ironically, this has a similar effect to the one imposed by the Jesus Seminar, a group of historically sceptical scholars who believe we need to recover the historically authentic words of Jesus from the layers of later theological additions. The Red Letter Media Lego Ideas project is nearly at 2000 supporters! "Plinkett becomes the figure of a consumer culture that has been force-fed Hollywood schlock beyond its carrying capacity," Kirbach writes. [5][7], The Star Trek Generations review was met with many favorable comments, inspiring Stoklasa to review the other three Star Trek: The Next Generation films—First Contact (1996), Insurrection (1998), and Nemesis (2002). That this move will wander into a Marcionite position. Alongside Stoklasa and Bauman, Red Letter Media also employs Rich Evans as a full-time actor and stagehand for their projects, while he later on got involved in the commentary aspect of the show as well. In July 2014, Red Letter Media affiliates Rich Evans and Jack Packard began a YouTube Video game review channel under the name Previously Recorded or Pre-Rec. And only God is perfect.

It also makes the mistake (though often trumpeted) of thinking that St Paul neither knew or relied on the teaching of Jesus.
