"Men give advice; God gives guidance."
"Are the things you are living for worth Christ dying for?"
"A sinning man stops praying, a praying man stops sinning"
"The only reason we don't have revival is because we are willing to live without it!"
"God pity us that after years of writing, using mountains of paper and rivers of ink, exhausting flashy terminology about the biggest revival meetings in history, we are still faced with gross corruption in every nation, as well as with the most prayerless church age since Pentecost."
"The Church used to be a lifeboat rescuing the perishing. Now she is a cruise ship recruiting the promising."
"The opportunity of a lifetime must be seized within the lifetime of the opportunity."
"My main ambition in life is to be on the devil's most wanted list."
"If Jesus had preached the same message that ministers preach today, He would never have been crucified."
"Entertainment is the devil's substitute for joy"

Well, if you haven't seen the poll on the left sidebar then you probably have no idea why I'm posting this. lol. In the poll I asked what your favorite Sherwood Pictures movie is, and the choices were: Flywheel; Facing the Giants; Fireproof; I think it will be their next one, Courageous; I've never heard of any of them (hint hint. post about it!); and, I love them all!
As you have probably already guessed, I have had one vote and it was for the: "I've never heard of any of them (hint hint. post about it!)". lol. So, here we go!
Here is their main website: http://www.sherwoodpictures.com/
And from there, you can get to any of the movie websites.
But first, their first movie: Flywheel!
This is a great movie, not as high quality as the others, but still a terrific story! I really encourage everyone to watch it!
It is about a man who is not a Christian, owns a car lot, and cheats all his customers, by telling them too high a price, and telling them they are getting a good deal of a trash of a car, and even, by lying to them, telling them it was never wrecked, when really it was.
Later on, he finds Christ, and puts all his faith and trust in Him; including his lot. He stops cheating people, and actually returns all the money that he overcharged them. Once he handed his lot over to God, the whole problem worked out. His debts, he was able to pay. His customers that he cheated, were returned their money. His relationship with his wife and young boy, were healed.
Next, Facing the Giants!
This is also an awesome story! The same main character in Flywheel comes back and is the coach for this high school foot ball team.
In this movie, the coach learns how trusting God, and letting Him work, is worth everything. He had been coach of this team at this school for many many years, and they hadn't won much at all, they were the worst team they could think of. But once an older man told the coach: "God will send the rain when he's ready. You have to prepare your fields to receive it." Meaning that, he has to prepare his football team for the new season in a way that honors and glorifies God, then God will reward him. And boy, he did!
Once he had taught the team the importance of playing for the glory of God, and not for themselves, the whole team was dedicated. They ended up winning the state championship, two years (at least) in a row!
Thirdly, Fireproof! Their latest movie!
This is a really, really good one! Made me stop breathing in a few parts, it was so tense. :D
This movie is about marriage, how a husband and wife, who don't get along, want to have a divorce. But then the husband, Captain Caleb Holt, who is a firefighter, changes his mind and really does want their marriage not to break. So his dad sends him a book, a diary, a book with a challenge for each day; something to do for your spouse for that day, along with a Bible verse. But at first she rejected all of it.
Later on, Caleb realizes that his whole heart hasn't been in it. And he realizes that God is the only one who can save their marriage. He becomes a Christian wholeheartedly, and does all he can do save his marriage from breaking.
In the end, Kathrine, his wife, sees what he is doing for her. And forgives him.
Their movie that they are working on now is called, "Courageous". And I can't wait till that comes out!

Hope you liked it! Now go rent them! :)

I can honestly say, both! :)
12) In one word, describe the feeling you get when you stub your toe, after just being told by your parents that you are grounded for the next month:
13) Let's say you TP'd your friend's house (for those of you who don't know what TP'd stands for, it means toilet papered. As in, put toilet paper on their trees, cars, house, porch, etc.). If someone asked you why you TP'd your friends house, you would say:
Because I love them!
They did it to me first!

But, I'll risk it...Once, in front of all the girls in the Youth Group, I admitted that I hated speaking in public, even if it was just in front of friends (I went though a horrid stage of that last year), and that my heart was thumbing a whole 20 mph.

18) How many friends do you have on blogger?
A bunch! And I 'm so glad I know you all!

20) You're a turtle, who has bet that you can win a race with a rabbit. How does it turn out?

My mom found this site page with some pretty hilarious jokes on it, so I thought I'd share them with you. :) ~Joke Credit~ (NOTE: I don't know anything about this site).
A mushroom walks into a bar, sits down and orders a drink.
The bartender says "We don't serve mushrooms here."
The mushroom says, "Why not? I'm a fun guy!"
A neutron goes into a restaurant and asks the waiter, "How much for a meal?" The waiter replies, "For you, no charge."
Two atoms are walking down the street and they run into each other. One says to the other, "Are you all right?"
"No, I lost an electron!"
"Are you sure?"
"Yeah, I'm positive!"
