I haven't posted for a while because I keep telling myself I am going to do another video blog, but when I get a free moment to do one, I either think of something else to do, or I am tired so I go to bed. Maybe tomorrow, haha.
Tonight in my small group, we watched the movie Luther (Dad, I think you'd enjoy this one). It's a biopic of Martin Luther and the beginning of the Reformation. I really need to learn more about the Roman Catholic church. I've been to Mass once in my life, but I still have no idea as to what doctrine is preached, and what their belief system really is.
My entire concept comes from movies like this one, or The Three Musketeers, where the Catholic Church is always portrayed as a corrupt establishment that is eager for nothing but money and power. These make for a great storyline, and I'm sure some of it is true, but there HAS to be more to it than that. I've decided that I'm going to attend a Mass here in the Philippines next week, it should be interesting. It should give me a new cultural experience on top of the new form of worship. I'm just interested in learning more about it all.
What made tonight even more interesting was that Christine (A native German in our small group) had a lot of history to explain parts left out of the movie. It's amazing how intertwined religion and politics were during that period in history!
On a different subject, I'm thinking of scratching my trip to Boracay and going to Bohol instead. I'll keep you posted!
