Sandra Bullock Next Movie appearance is anticipated by millions. My wife and I have enjoyed several of her movies. She seems to have a transparent sort of beauty independent of war paint as John Wayne called make up and such long ago. Unsure what Sandra Bullock Beauty Secrets entail.
I do not know if she wears make up or not, nor do I care if women do one way or the other. I have enough problems and sin of my own to worry about moralizing to others, except when I see people relating Jesus through their alleged superiority in their moralizing.
Jesus came, lived, died and rose again and sent the Spirit of truth, NOT to make bad people good. He came to make dead people alive by grace through faith. I admit, as the Georgia Straight (news outlet) reported that Sandra also says she has had experiences that are not all positive.
Only the religious claim they are so holy, high and mighty and the hypocrisy drew the seeming ire of Jesus who called them a “brood of vipers” a “white washed wall” and “men whose robes were full of dead men’s bones.” Yes Jesus was also unimpressed Sandra.
Because Jesus said it in the Bible I often point out Paul was exclusively appointed by Jesus personally (Acts 9: 15) as His instrument to reveal his name to us sinful Gentiles.
He (Paul) at Ephesians 2: 1-10, said:
“As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. 3 All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. 4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
In other words once God makes you alive in Jesus he walks you away from the sin fit for his wrath and begins to recreate you through his work showing you his mercy and the incomparable riches of his grace expressed to us in Christ Jesus. He makes dead people alive.
Yeah Sandra Bullock was married to Jesse James who has a reputation as a bad boy biker type. I know about having such a reputation and it was once well deserved. But I’m still being walked away from all of that by a merciful God.
In the Georgia Straight they did an interview with our girl:
“LOS ANGELES—When Sandra Bullock read the script for The Blind Side, she liked almost everything about it. She just wasn’t sure she wanted to work too closely with the woman whose life is portrayed in the film. Leigh Anne Touhy, a wealthy Memphis white woman whose family adopted an impoverished African-American teenager and turned his life around, is a Republican and a devout Christian. Bullock, a Democrat, says she brought to the project a lifelong suspicion of people who boast about their devotion to the church. “People use it [Christianity] as a banner, and then they don’t do the right thing,” she says in a Los Angeles hotel room. “They go, ”˜I am a good Christian and I go to church, and this is the way you should live your life.’ I said to Leigh Anne when I met her, ”˜One of my biggest concerns stepping into this is this whole banner thing.’ I told her it scared me because I have had a lot of experiences that haven’t been that great. But she was so honest and forthright. I feel I have finally met someone who practices but doesn’t preach. I now have faith in those who say they represent a faith, whereas before I would say, ”˜Do not give me a lecture, because I think I am a pretty good human being. I may not go to church all the time, but I try to do the right thing. You are going to church and sleeping with someone else’s wife, so how are you better than me?’ I finally met someone who walks the walk, and that made me happy.” ….
“Bullock says that the key to her decision to make the film was that the Touhys didn’t get involved in Oher’s life for any benefits that might come to them. She says she felt the film would promote a genuine selflessness. “They didn’t do it because someone was writing an article or a book or making a movie. They did it because their instinct was to give love and to reach out a hand. Everyone questioned their motives, of course, because we don’t trust anyone who does anything nice. That is the sad world we live in. But they kept going, so it makes you feel that you need to step up your game. I felt it was an inspirational story that says we are more capable than we think we are, even though we don’t really live in a world that supports the good that we can do.” The Georgia Straight
So Sandra Bullock wants genuine experience in Christian love. That is where the rubber meets the road as they say. And she’s right if you aren’t careful you go down and end up with road rash. We call on the name of the Lord and sometime end up as street pizza.
Something genuine happened to me when I was ya young 22. All of it came from the Lord Jesus and none of it from me. Ever since then I’ve been on a quest to be genuine, thus the genuinearticlex7.com. I wear it to signify the Lord’s genuine transformation which is not yet complete as Paul also tells us. Galatians 5: 4, 5:
“You who are trying to be justified by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace. 5 For through the Spirit we eagerly await by faith the righteousness for which we hope.”
Thank you Sandra Bullock for coming out from behind the movie star thing for a minute to let us know the real you in the face of the sufferings of Christ. The cost of loving others is what we are supplied and empowered for.
Thank your for visiting me once again here. Thank you for reading my post. Please if you have any questions leave them below and I will try my best to answer them. Please leave any comments there also. I will be writing again soon. Chris.
