Mixed Feelings About The Gospel
13 January 2008 | by RichieLovesGodHisFatherSee all my reviews

Some people might consider me bias here but the truth is I am not prejudice.I enjoyed this movie.I am Italian/American and trained and sparred in boxing gyms in ghetto neighborhoods.My late trainer always called me his adopted son and I loved him dearly enough to say goodbye too him on his death bed before he died of cancer.This is nothing personal towards the makers and the participants of the gospel.What I didn't like about the movie they never spoke about God's Ten Commandments nor did their church display them.It is the same old age old story when it comes to religious films they are all reluctant to preach about God's Ten Commandments for what they actually stand for,and while I'm on the subject of churches and films being made in the name of God:How come none of them have banners put up for God that he is The King Of His Universe?? God also created the universe as well as other worlds,and the bible states put up your banners for God.Show me one church that puts up banners for God showing he is King of His Universe.I keep doing what I do,promoting the most powerful laws ever written in the history of the world mainly because God himself wrote them and trying to give God his unspoken and unwritten glory's.
