Excellent! I stumbled across this looking for something else and so glad I did. Very thought provoking. Every Christian and non Chirstian alike should watch this.
Amazing! Feb 20, 2007
This is a most wonderful experience of deep spiritual thinking and practical application. Highly recommended for anyone on a spiritual path.
Excellent encouragment for prayer. Jan 9, 2007
So many Christians pray only to be heard by God. But prayer is more that that. The authors and speakers on this video program offer help toward a way of prayer that has been all but lost in our day. Prayer is also meant to change us, to let God speak to us through the reflective reading of the Bible. Please don't listen to well meaning Christians who criticize this film for its superficial resemblence to New Age spirituality. Their criticisms are off the mark. There is plenty of biblical and historical support for the practices discussed here. Don't miss out on something that will bring you closer to God. See the film for yourself and decide if this is helpful to you.
Beware the cheap substitute Jan 2, 2007
I really love this video. After reading the 2 or 3 negative reviews here, I was curious and went back and watched it through again -- trying to discern if there was any truth to their opposing claims. I do hear the heart of their message as a concern for people who might be led astray into new age, me-centered spirituality. I think we should all be aware that from from the beginning of time, even with Adam and Eve, it has been the intent of the enemy (the devil, Satan) to distort the things of God. The enemy seeks to lure us away from humility and repentance which can be found in TRUE contemplative prayer, or "listening prayer" as taught by this video.
Rather the devil endeavors **always** to slip us a cheap substitute -- i.e., meditations focused on SELF -- mindless chanting repetitions and mantras as found in secular new age teachings, guided imagery, etc. Music as another example, was designed by God to stir men's souls toward God -- however the enemy is great at serving up cheap lyrics with good rhythm, which can ignite a more shallow feeling. Another example is cheap sex, vs. true intimacy between a committed husband and wife. These are all just cheap substitutes offered by the devil in an effort to contort and distort the blessings God has reserved for His children. God built us all with this LONGING to connect with Him, listening to Him as He listens to us, communing with Him in holiness and purity. I believe the scriptural principles in this "Be Still" video are intended for those who are seeking a deeper communion with Christ and I personally find this message to be a very needed teaching for the modern day fast-paced church of 2007. This video is SO full of Bible scripture and full of God's Truth. His sheep will know His voice ~~~ that is a guaranteed promise in the Bible, that true Christians will be able to discern the difference between the voice of the Enemy vs. the voice of the Good Shepherd. We can take Him at His Word that if we are truly seeking Him in a posture of humility, and surrendering our own wills (and cheap thrills!) to Christ, He will certainly direct our paths and guide us into all truth.
I can appreciate the negative reviewers' warnings to beware the cheap thrill served up on a silver platter -- it breaks my heart as well to see anyone led astray or deceived. Especially if it's me, LOL! However since this video is now in wide circulation, it IS what it IS. Let's pray that God's Word in this video will not return void -- that His Word will bind up the brokenhearted and lead men into deeper relationships with Christ.
For anyone who is considering this video and truly seeking God: The Bible promises that we WILL find God when we seek Him with all of our heart. I recommend this video for anyone who is humbly searching for the true God.
Be Still and Know that I am God Aug 3, 2006
Wonderful DVD. Great for retreats, prayer services, to share with family and friends. I thought it was a movie, but was pleased to see that it was a learning tool, for getting silent and listening to God. Very helpful with showing how to be still and how to listen. Helpful in teaching how to have a blessed prayer time and getting the most out of it, and being closer to God.
