I felt a bit uncomfortable in that I had just recently read the holy bible front to back...

Christianity makes you feel guilty for questioning your faith. I recall the scene where Neo asks the Oracle, "How do I know if I can trust you?", to which the oracle responds, "you can't, all you can do is decide for yourself whether you're going to accept or reject what I'm about to tell you."

The bible attests to its own truthfulness and those who don't believe can't be saved from the jaws of hell. Jesus is our only shot at salvation.

So how do I know whether or not I can trust this book written by man and passed down through the ages? Well, ... please refer to the words of the Oracle.

I must say that I actually felt VERY uncomfortable with all the questions swarming through my head, maybe even a bit guilty... And I was very quiet...

I guess if you don't believe in what the bible has to say, you had BETTER HOPE you're right.

I did like the movie but I, like Harv, did not appreciate all the direct references to Christianty (Nebuchandezzar - name of the ship/ king in the bible, Zion - city of the saved/mountain in Book of Revelation, etc.)
