I guess when you make a blockbuster movie and win an Academy Award you can say or do anything stupid and get away with it.
James Cameron is claiming to find the real burial site of Jesus Christ. Here is the stupid part: He says Jesus is STILL in it. This, of course, is major news to millions of Christians all over the world who will be celebrating Easter on the premise that their Lord and Savior rose from the dead in spirit AND body.
Can you imagine Easter with just the BUNNY? Talk about a depressing day, huh? “Hey kids, there’s no heaven, but here’s some chocolate for ya! Oh, stop crying! Eternal life was not that big a deal, anyway. Okay, who wants to go find some hidden eggs?”
The greatest event in human history is now a sham? It was FAKED? Jesus never really came out of that tomb and appeared to his disciples three days after his horrific execution on the cross? Really?
Yep. Just ask James Cameron. Of course, he IS the same guy who rewrote maritime history with, “Titanic.” According to HIS version of events, the real reason the ship hit the fatal iceberg was because the dudes up in the crow’s nest were ogling Jack and Rose kissing when they should have been taking care of visual business to ensure safety for the 2,208 passengers and crew. I get it. Teenagers kissing equals historical calamity. Where was Jason’s mommy from, “Friday the 13th” when you needed her most? She kills Jack and Rose and the ship is saved. A Hollywood answer for a Hollywood premise.
Now, Mr. Cameron is foisting his brand of the dramatic on our faith. He claims there are actually ten people in the tomb that was discovered 27 years ago. (Not to be confused with the current site which has turned into a Christian church and a shrine for tourists) Apparently this grave is the real deal according to Cameron who, don’t forget, informed the world that Jack and Rose were primarily responsible for the sinking of the Titanic.
This major “find” is going to be the subject of a press conference in New York tomorrow and will be shown on television on…The Discovery Channel.
The greatest expose of the most famous person in history shattering the faith of every Christian since the Book of Acts is going to be on…THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL?
What happened to a MAJOR news network here? Why isn’t ABC, CBS or NBC covering this? What about Fox? Geraldo? Ted Turner?
The Discovery Channel is known for explaining the inner workings of a grasshopper or why hippos kill more humans than any other wild animal. Paltry stuff compared to the destruction of Easter. I don’t get it.
But, then again, I believe that Jesus died for me and rose from the dead so I could have eternal life and place my faith in God and not in the power of Jack and Rose.
