Yeah, the costumes and staging in Lion King were amazing. I thought the story, music, and acting were actually a bit over the top and less impressive than in the movie. But the brilliance of those puppets. My favorite is the lion with the person standing in the rear half.
e-mail, shme-mail...that doesn't sound quite right

Wasn't the story and music about the same?
The few slow, non-spectacle pieces were a bit of drag.
Acting wise, it just seemed "theatrical" to me, as broadway musicals usually are.
I think that was Leopard, w/ the spots and all...

, “For the wages for sin is death”. The punishment for our sins is psyaichl and spiritual death.It seems to me that everyone dies, whether they're good or bad, sinners or not. I understand that according to the Bible, only three people have ever been sinless: Jesus Christ, and Adam and Eve (pre-fruit).Jesus, also according to the Bible, died on a cross. Adam died after a few centuries. I don't think the Bible explicitly says that Eve died, though it implies that she died no later than the flood. In any case, Genesis 3:22 says that Adam was never immortal, no matter what people like Ken Ham may say.In short, it's not that the wages of sin is death , but rather, everyone dies .This is the penalty that Jesus paid his death on the cross paid for my sins.How exactly does this work? If I robbed your house, could I later find someone who commit suicide or was killed, and say that by dying, he paid the penalty for me, so I shouldn't go to prison?At any rate, if Jesus wanted to erase a debt that you owe him, why can't he just do so? I've forgiven a number of debts, some quite substantial, and I've never had to die to do so.[Josh McDowell] decided that he would use the information in the Bible and find an error.You mean, an error like saying that bats are birds (Lev. 11:13-19) or that grasshoppers have four legs (Lev. 11:20-22)?Or do you mean big errors like the earth being flat, or that there was once a worldwide flood?I look at it this way when I die, if I’m wrong and the Bible is a myth, I’ve lost nothing. I’ve lived a happy life, and my faith in God has filled me with peace and joy throughout my life. On the other hand, if you’re wrong, and the Bible is true and Jesus really did die to pay for your sin, then you’ll have lost everything.Look at it this way when you die, if you're wrong and the Koran is a myth, you've lost nothing. You've lived a happy life, and your faith in Allah has filled you with peace and joy throughout your life. On the other hand, if the Koran is true, and Mohammed (peace be unto him) really brought the word of Allah, then you'll have lost everything.Look at it this way when you die, if the doesn't exist, you've lost nothing. But if he does, and you haven't followed his rules, then you won't get to spend eternity in heaven with the beer volcano and the stripper factory.Sorry, but Pascal's wager is a crap argument.
