I felt a bit uncomfortable in that I had just read the Holy Bible front to back recently (yes it did take awhile) and then went and saw this movie.

Christianity makes you feel guilty for questioning your faith. I believe in the validity of the scriptures but I like how the oracle put it to Neo when he asked how do I know if I can trust you. She looked him in the eye and said "you can't!, all you can do is decide for yourself whether you want to accept or reject what I'm going to tell you."

For anybody that's read the bible, you know that it attests to its own truthfullness and that those who dont accept its word are damned to eternal torture. I guess I can only decide for myself whether to accept or reject "what it is about to tell me" and HOPE I'm right.

The word of God (the Architect), written and passed down by man, do you accept or reject?

The bible says that those who accept its word will be spiritualy awakened (hmmmm... Matrix) and know "the truth".

I was actualy very uncomfortable during that movie, and very quiet too...

But I must say I liked it.
