A SPIRITUAL WORD from david bruce

In closing, I don’t know why it is, but I often get an extreme amount of criticism about reviews of this style of movie or of any in the horror genre. The truth is that, as author Ted Dekker points out: “To paint evil with anything less than the darkest of brushes is not an honest portrayal of evil.” I firmly believe that to truly enjoy the good things of life, we must have a glimpse of the darkness of evil. That doesn’t mean that we have to subject ourselves to it all of the time. The reminders though, as portrayed in Suspect Zero, that there are consequences to pay for evil actions and that God ultimately will punish every form of evil are excellent reminders for all of us. I personally enjoy those reminders, and believe that movies like this provide excellent opportunities for discussion regarding spiritual themes. It is for that reason, that I am recommending seeing Suspect Zero.
--Mike Furches

Football is a mistake. It combines the two worst elements of American life. Violence and committee meetings.
--George F. Will

Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.
--Isaac Asimov, Salvor Hardin in "Foundation"

What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty or democracy?
--Mahatma Gandhi, "Non-Violence in Peace and War"

Leave others alone -no violence -no judging

Romans 14:10-12 Message Bible
So where does that leave you when you criticize a brother? And where does that leave you when you condescend to a sister? I'd say it leaves you looking pretty silly—or worse. Eventually, we're all going to end up kneeling side by side in the place of judgment, facing God. Your critical and condescending ways aren't going to improve your position there one bit. Read it for yourself in Scripture:

" 'As I live and breathe,' God says,
'every knee will bow before me;
Every tongue will tell the honest truth
that I and only I am God.' "

So tend to your knitting. You've got your hands full just taking care of your own life before God.
