Ready for a new year?

New year's coming up, and to some it's the season for resolutions! Do you have any resolutions? Anything you'd like to redo?

God is willing to forgive you anytime, anyplace for free. Here's what to do:
-First, admit your sin to God.
-Second, ask God to forgive you for your sins.
-Third, believe that God really has forgiven you and quit feeling guilty!

There. Done. The end. New Year.

He will again have compassion on us, and will subdue our iniquities. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea. Micah 7:19

What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not!
Romans 6:15.

Famous Failures

In this world of sin there's one thing we've all gone through: failure. It's part of the package deal that usually comes with learning things the hard way. Sometimes failure just seems to happen even after you've done your very best.

The good news in all of this is that the story doesn't end like that, at least not to those who choose to do something about it.

Film Review: "Secret of the Cave"

Secret of the Cave (2006)
Southern Adventist University

Runtime: 88 minutes
MPAA Rating: PG
Awards: 2006 Crystal Heart Award

Sabbath Blog Rating: (4.5 out of 5 stars)

Secret of the Cave is a modern adaptation of the classic, 1951 book (also titled Secret of the Cave) by Arthur S. Maxwell. The film follows Roy Wallace (played by Kevin Novotny), an American boy whose parents have recently divorced. He's dropped off by his father (played by Patrick Bergin) at a tiny fishing village in Ireland, where his uncle and aunt live. Strange events begin to occur on the island, causing the locals to believe it's ghosts. Roy refuses to believe the rumors and takes on the mystery for himself. When, all signs point to a nearby cave, Roy faces his fears and discovers the Secret of the Cave.

The story focuses on unselfishness and kindness. Filmed on location in Doogort, on Achill Island, Ireland, this film really shows the scenic landscape of the region. Though the heavy Irish accents of some of the actors may be sometimes difficult to undestand, the DVD comes in handy with Subtitles options in English and Spanish. The DVD includes "Behind the Scenes" and "Cave Saftey" featurettes. It also comes with director and student commentary tracks. Secret of the Cave is a student film by the School of Visual Art and Design at Southern Adventist University.

Secret of the Cave is rated PG (Parental Guidance) for some brief scary mystery scenes, and for thematic elements. I'm guessing that by thematic elements, they mean the one Bible verse and the talks about doing things for others.... The film was featured at the 2006 Heartland Film Festival and won the Crystal Heart Award. It is also family approved by the Dove Foundation.
