The problem I see, and I have and do work with "at risk" youth, is that by placing the "Christian" label on it, you will turn them away. Children in these programs fall into one of two categories, the already religious, who need no goading to participate in religious things, and the non religious, who will never realte to the Christian thing.

The way to approach it sucessfully is to provide guidance material in a NON christian way, so those that are most at risk can get the positives from the material, without rejecting it off hand because its "those church people".

The "Left Behind" series is trash. Poorly written, false scripture references and in the movies, REALLY bad acting.

Hmm. This coming from a...how many times married (etc) guy? I loved the movie (and trust me, at one point I was so mad at that woman...but still a good movie). Let's work on a marriage and try to save it rather than run at the first or 3rd sign of trouble.

That's your opinion and thank God most do not share it. I loved the series and yes it is based on scripture (the scripture part). In fact, I'm rereading them as we speak (every few years I reread them).

Please stop being so ugly (and no, I'm not talking about your looks).

"Hmm. This coming from a...how many times married (etc) guy?"

Yeah, if I had JUST believed in GOD< maybe my ex wife wouldn't have fvcked anything with feet, huh?

"Let's work on a marriage and try to save it rather than run at the first or 3rd sign of trouble."

Interesting choice of words. "Let's"...LET US. So what did SHE do to work on the marriage? She didn't even work out of the HOUSE, and they had no kids, yet SOMEHOW it was Calebs job to provide EVERYTHING< not only for her, but also for her PARENT.

So what did we learn from that? That a good relationship is JUST like your relationship with GOD, you provide EVERYTHING< he does NOTHING, and it all works out...HUH? That is NOT the kind of relationships I want MY kids involved in.

I'm not debating it with you since you can't have a debate on this and not get ugly, which just makes me angry and I say things I shouldn't.

Have a great day, gr8dad.

"That's your opinion and thank God most do not share it."

Actually, most of the REGULAR critics do NOT think it is decent literature. Unfortunately, and you just demonstrated it, those types of literature and movies do not recieve FAIR criticism, because ANY criticism is negated as being "Anti Christian". Good, religious art is POSSIBLE, but in order to do so, one must look at it objectively. "The Green Mile" is a perfect example. Blatant religious book/movie, GREAT writing, awesome acting, etc. So it IS possible, but you have to be honest with yourself and the art to truly see any improvement. The Kendrick brothers, who directed Fireproof, other films (Facing the Giants and Flywheel) are ALSO crap. Why? Because they have a GUARANTEED audience, and recieve NO criticism for the OBVIOUSLY lacking attributes.

Of course, those movies teach that if you have faith in God, everything will work out great. It is called "prosperity gospel", and is COMPLETELY FALSE< and NOT in accordance with your scriptures.
