:wave: I've watched The Ten Commandments so many times! Haven't seen in a few years though. Good movie but really how true to life was it?

It seems fairly accurate,but there were differences.For example,The Bible tells us Moses fled to the wilderness after the discovery of his killing the Egyptian,when in the movie he is banished by Pharaoh.Also they played up a romance between Moses and Ann Baxter's character,when none existed in the Biblical account.

What's accuracy got to do with either?  They're both fictionalized accounts of a guy who was initially trained by the Aegyptian priesthood in 'magic'.
One can lead a horse to water however, if one holds the horse's head under, that horse will drown.

I got about 3/4 0f the way through and fell asleep. I ordered it from eBay today, on DVD, so I can watch it all.

It was a yearly tradition in my home when I was growing up, but I haven't seen it in a few years.  I remember it well.  It's a good film.  :star:

We watch every year. Its a family tradition. I love when Moses separates the water for people to get to the other side. I brought my mom the gift set they had at Sam's Club. All time favorite movie.

I channel surfed before bed and watched part of it.  As an atheist, I found it really interesting how it played out no different than Hercules (a.k.a. Greek mythology), and yet people today still claim that this version actually happened.

I used to be an athiest and an agnostic(God bless em'), but that ran its course. As a believer, I'm glad Charlton Heston too was a believer too  :angel11: I watch this movie every Easter when its on tv  ;D. God loves us all  :heart:

If you were ever a disbeliever in god, you were the lazy kind who simply was mad at the world.  An atheist who actually has real reasons to back up their convictions doesn't tend to fall susceptible to delusions.  Atheism isn't a "phase"; believing in god is...if you're intelligent.

You may not believe in God Queen Of Nines, but God believes in you  :angel11:. You're just as cute as can be!  :notworthy: :wave: :peace: :heart: :cat: ;D

So you go from being condescending to feigning sincerity with compliments...interesting.

As with your misperception of the reality of Jesus and Heavenly Father so does your facetiousness. Thought provoking  ;)
