Wow. Now I want to see that movie, since I haven't. Very interesting, very thought-provoking. Do please read it and share your thoughts! :) Excerpt:
But when all was said and done there was no real hope because there was no evidence that the magic worked. The old gods were silent. The priests were impotent. The pyramids and temples and ziggurats had crumbled. Then in the Springtime of the year comes Christ the Tiger. The Lion of Judah arises. The Great Aslan. The radiant, golden-maned beast who rises like the sun, or like a bridegroom emerging from his chamber.
(That line in my title is very Switchfoot-y and Jon-ish, isn't it?) ^_^
**My note to certain readers: our beloved Switchfoot's often-heard cry of truly living today, truly being alive, living in the moment, "Today is all you've got now" is NOT Epicurean. Clearly, the guys are calling us out of a kind of daily lethargy; it is true, after all, that "tomorrow never comes." Live this life to the fullest, for death (and eternal life with it) comes sooner than we think. Live out your faith now, before it's too late. We know they are Christian. There's nothing unChristian about "seizing the day" for Christ. Truly living each day does not = a life of excess. :)
**Note the second: liking pizza or "fine things" also does not mean you are "Epicurean", lol. Fr. only means it with regards to viewing such things as the only end in life, nothing else. Living in excess, living only for those things. That's where the problem is. :P
