This Christian video is terrible

Here’s a Christian video trying to pretend that they understand anything about rock and roll gods. It feels so real that you could swear it was taken right from “Behind the Music”. Somehow I never seem to get tired of Jesus-Junk.

My favorite part of the video is when the blond haired guy asks God-boy: “How do you know the book is true?” and he’s given the non-answer of: “My book is the Bible. Ever since I started living by what it says in there, my life has changed so much.”

That’s not really an answer, bro. In any case, I would never deny that a person’s life can change when they start reading the Bible. If you aren’t busy trying to ensure that you’re not wearing clothes made of two different fabrics or trying to cook your bread using your own feces, there’s tons of confusing stories to find a way to somehow make relevant in today’s modern world.

    this is something that i’ve never understood, how can someone be converted by reading such a terrible book? only someone who already believes would think that it’s of any worth beyond bad mythology.
    i’ve tried on several occasions to read through it, and even when i was a believer, never has any kind of ‘Truth’ been revealed to me. if wisdom is what you’re looking for, ‘poor richards almanac’ or ‘the art of war’ are much better books. the bible? pfeh, it reads like the diary of a madman.

    I love the PSA feel of the piece. It is so flaky and bland I wonder how it will attract the young.

    It really is laughable how they view the world sometimes. Even when I was a Christian I thought videos like this were positively gag-inducing. They’re so ham-handed and poorly acted, a caricature of reality that is unintentionally funny while being naively condescending.

    Are we really to believe the main character picked up the little black book – ooooh! didn’t see that cliche coming! – of the Bible, read 1, *maybe* 2 lines of a random page, and was so smitten inside of 5 seconds that it goes on to change his life? And it gets so much worse with that couch scene. This is the image people who rarely step outside the confines of their cloistered church life have of society. They are incapable of relating to it, and if anyone in a local metal band came up to them and said “hi”, they probably wouldn’t know what to do with themselves.

    Is this some kind of “how long can you watch” challenge? Because I made it to the second sentence on the couch and called it quits. The near erotic whispering, the overdone California surfer talk from 1993, the simplification of a life altering experience…I just couldn’t take it.

    It reminds me of Keanu Reeves in Bill & Teds Excellent Adventure.

    Funny how they don’t realize the statement they make that highly uneducated people are quick to believe this. Not helping your cause and not making your religion appealing.
