I had to print this part of the review from Christianity Today: The thing speaks for itself: read this and I’ll BLOG about it at the end….
From Christianity Today review of KNOWING:
…This is not to say that Knowing is a “Christian” film, per se; indeed, to the extent that we take the movie literally—to the extent that we experience the world within the story on its own terms, as any of the characters would experience it—we can safely say that the movie deviates in some ways from a biblical understanding of the concepts that it invokes. But like some of the more interesting parables, the film takes our expectations and rattles them around a bit, confirming some and disturbing others, and for some viewers it may be just the sort of thing that can tease us into active thought about what we believe and why.
In my humble opinion the reviewer is missing the mark by a mile. I’ll say it again, this movie is a direct assault on what we believe as Christians and in fact is the poster child for what I have come to term as, ‘The Alien Gospel 101.’ [See my previous BLOG a few posts further down] Christianity Today is perhaps the premier Christian magazine publication in the world. I am alarmed that it seems to give a pass to the movie rather than warning about the anti Christian, content that is deliberately weaved into the plot from beginning to end. Does this lack of awareness and discernment, on the part of the reviewer and thus, the entire magazine support the scripture that tells us, “That even the elect would be deceived if that were possible?” The bottom line is this. Knowing is set up for the Coming Great Deception. It is getting people ready to accept the idea that ‘aliens’ from other worlds, with superior intellect and technology, created us and in fact, were the gods that we worshipped.

Here is a story about a recent cattle mutilation that is happening in Colorado. If you follow the link please be sure to read some of the comments. One is particularly interesting as the writer complains that these kind of stories shouldn’t be allowed on the NET! The story tells of strange lights that are seen in the sky. The carcass of the cow is found drained of blood with cored out udders and there are no footprints around it. It’s like the animal was dropped from the air. So let’s strip it down and walk through it. Once again we see that the phenomena is real and burgeoning and not going away. If we apply Occam’s razor to this case, that the simplest answer is usually the best one, we may conclude, that the animal was dropped from the sky. That being said, it remains to be seen who did the dropping. If it is black helicopters then why didn’t the rancher hear them? What we see is that whoever is doing this acts with impunity. They take what they want and drop the remains in the ranchers face. This creates fear and uncertainty. These are deliberate actions on the part of the perpetrators. In my opinion this is another side to the UFO/fallen angel scenario that I am endlessly warning against.
…A rancher in southern Colorado has an out of this world theory for what killed one of his cows. “We have other life out there and I think that’s what it is,” Mike Duran said. Duran says he’s noticed strange lights flying overhead and he believes aliens may be to blame for mutilating one of his cows. “Like a round circle in the air,” Duran said. “I’ve watched them and then they just disappear.”“
Don’t miss the Monthly News Magazine! This month we have someone coming on the record who claims to have seen a shape-shifting ‘Alien’ 2o years ago and only now is willing to talk about it. I believe them… Here’s the link to sign up… http://lamarzulli.net/news_magazine.htm
