Franz Pieper knew the detrimental effects of the film industry in June of 1921 when he wrote about it. But the following comments that he made weren't just about the general film industry, but about films about the Bible. Surely he wouldn't criticize films made about the Bible... would he? Here is what he said in Lehre und Wehre, volume 67, page 192:
Or should he [Christ] be crucified once again by the same people [the Jews!] who led him mocking and jeering to Golgatha?What about the films "The Ten Commandments" and "The Bible" and others? When the Lord brought me back to the true faith, I wanted to watch these films again ... to, you know, strengthen my faith in the Bible. And even though there are portions of these films that have correct depictions of certain Bible events, yet even they betray a lack of spiritual understanding of the Bible's message. For example in the movie "The Bible", George C. Scott depicts Abraham as railing against God when God told him to offer his son Isaac for a burnt offering in Genesis 22:1-18. The Bible records nothing like what the movie portrays.
In our modern world, truly "anything goes"... Cole Porter did not say it any better:
The world has gone mad todaythan Martin Luther in paragraph 26 here:
And good's bad today,
And black's white today,
And day's night today,...
they [the Jews] must believe their rabbis,Not only the movie industry but also television is basically controlled by unbelievers, especially Jews. Turn on your TV set, let alone go to the movies. There is virtually nothing that does not cause you to question the Christian faith, the Bible. And who are these people that largely control what we see and hear and read? They will tell you who they are. Joel Stein, a Jew, said it best in the LA Times here:
even if they said in the same matter that
the right hand would be the left and the
left would be the right one
Jews totally run Hollywood.... But I don't care if Americans think we're running the news media, Hollywood, Wall Street or the government. I just care that we get to keep running them.They are openly proud of it! There is one institution that Mr. Stein didn't mention – universities. But Pieper wasn't fooled by them, nor was he fooled by preachers who claim we need their motion picture shows for our faith.
- Henry Ford capitulated to the Jews.
- Today's LC-MS has capitulated to the Jews.
- Not so the old (German) Missouri Synod! Franz Pieper continually guided it until the day he died in 1931... by following Luther – they believed God at His Word.
