A Review of Lone Survivor!

I had high expectations for the film, Lone Survivor.  It not only met them, but exceeded them.  The above video illustrates why.  Everyone that worked on the film, wanted to honor the real soldiers who died that day.  It's not often that you see loved ones of men that have died, be happy with a film that is done about their lives.

Mark Wahlberg was phenomenal and Taylor Kitsch did an amazing job.  Kitsch is best known for his role on Friday Night Lights as Riggins.  It's not often that a mother and daughter have a crush on the same guy, but that's what happened to my daughter and I when we watched Friday Night Lights.  Yet, Kitsch proved in Lone Survivor that he was a great actor, and could do more than play a hunky football player.

The film was very inspirational, and anyone that watches it without tearing up, doesn't have a heart.  It was a story of how dedicated American soldiers are to not only their country, but to each other.  Seeing what all of them persevered through and kept going, was amazing.  It inspired me in my own life, that when things get rough, I need to keep on going.


Mark Wahlberg played Marcus Luttrell who was the lone survivor.  Luttrell wrote the book about the true story that the film was based on.  I put the book on hold at the library, and can't wait to read it.

I give the movie 5 stars, I highly recommend it, and will be buying it as soon as it comes out on DVD.

THE APOSTLES' TEACHING

The early Christians believed the apostles' teaching. (Acts 2:42 They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles' teaching....)

What was not the apostles' teaching? What was the apostles' teaching, what was their source?

The apostles' teaching did not originate from the Pharisees creed books. They did not teach from the Sadducees statement of faith. The apostles did not use the catechisms of the Judaizers as the final authority or as a substitute for the Scriptures.

The Scriptures were the source of the apostles' teaching and the words and writings of the apostles were also the Scriptures.

Acts 17:2 And according to Paul's customs, he went to them, and for three Sabbaths reasoned with them from the Scriptures......

Paul taught from the Scriptures, not from man-made creed books and catechisms.

2 Peter 2:15-16 just as also our beloved brother Paul, according the the wisdom given him , wrote to you, 16 as also in all his letters, speaking in them of theses things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.

Peter included the apostles Paul's writing as being Scriptures.

The apostles' teaching was from the Old Testament Scriptures and from their own words and letters which were in fact the New Testament Scriptures.

The apostles did not teach from the creed books of the Pharisees. The did not use the catechisms of the Judaizers to instruct their brethren in faith and practice. They did not consult the Sadducees statement of faith, in order to teach others.

The apostle John wrote the last Scripture in A.D. 95, it was the Revelation of Jesus Christ.

A.D. 95 was the last recorded teaching by an apostle.

If the contemporary creed books, catechisms, statements of faith, Bible commentaries, so-called new revelation of modern-day apostles, and other extra-Biblical sources are not the exact same teachings of the apostles of the Bible, then, THEY ARE IN FACT, WRITTEN WORDS OF FALSE DOCTRINE.
