Five & Two Pictures is proud to announce the upcoming release of a very special film entitled “The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry.”
Coming to theaters Sept. 18, “The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry” is an inspiring film for viewers from 8 years old to 80 years old. Best buddies Dustin (Jansen Panettiere), Albert (Frankie Ryan Manriquez), and Mark (Allen Isaacson) are twelve year old boys looking forward to a summer of fun in 1970. When Dustin mows the lawn of seventy-five year old Jonathan Sperry (Gavin MacLeod), a man he has seen at church, a unique friendship develops. What happens the rest of this summer is something Dustin and his friends will never forget!
Jansen Panettiere, the younger brother of Hayden Panettiere of “Heroes” fame, and Robert Guillaume also co-star.
Actor Kirk Cameron says “‘The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry’ moved me with its message about how one faithful man can make a difference in the lives of many. I recommend this inspiring movie for any family to watch together.”
“The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry” has a very unique marketing plan behind the film where churches sponsor the film as a local outreach in theaters. The movie is to open in over 200 theaters nationwide in Sept.
Popular actor Gavin MacLeod, made famous from his roles in “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and “The Love Boat,” is a devout Christian and said it was a privilege to play this role. “I have been acting for over 60 years,” Gavin says. “I made my first movie in the mid-1950’s and have worked with some of the biggest stars in show business – Cary Grant, Gregory Peck, Tony Curtis, Clint Eastwood, Steve McQueen, Bing Crosby – the list goes on and on,” he adds. “I also had the opportunity to be in two of the most popular TV shows in the history of television playing a newsman in ‘The Mary Tyler Moore Show’ and the captain of ‘The Love Boat.’ Playing the role of Jonathan Sperry is the most meaningful project I have ever done.”
The film’s Director and Producer Rich Christiano (who also made “Time Changer”) and his team are hoping that churches and groups will jump on board. “Ninety-nine percent of the movies that come out in the theater have almost nothing to do with the Lord and Christian themes. I think this movie can encourage a lot of people during difficult times. They will laugh, be encouraged and touched.
Actor Pat Boone called “The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry” a “heartwarming experience for the entire family.”
“The church normally just plays defense,” Christiano adds. “Hollywood will do something we don’t like, and we complain about it. We need to go on the offense! Let’s put forth films that can be positive for our society like ‘The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry.’ If viewers will give this movie a chance, I think they are going to pleasantly surprised.

What do you think about Obama's desire to emulate God's characteristics (reference: http://www.raptureready.com/featured/funk/ooo.html) such as:
This term refers to the all powerful nature of God. Looking at Webster again, this is defined as "almighty power; unlimited or infinite power; a word in strictness applicable only to God." He is the all-powerful Lord who has created all things and sustains them by His Word
This term refers to the all knowing nature of God. Webster defines it as "the quality of knowing all things at once; universal knowledge; knowledge unbounded or infinite." He knows our very thoughts, our feelings, our desires and our needs. He knows our words before we say them and he knows our thoughts before we think them. He knows all of our ways. In fact, God even knew us before we were born. There are no secrets before Almighty God. In short, God possesses superior knowledge and wisdom about everything and that knowledge is all encompassing. When we say that He knows our thoughts, what we really mean is that He knows the thoughts of every person on the planet right now, at this instant – all six billion plus people. He knows everything about everybody all the time, down to the most intimate detail. He doesn't need to read "People" magazine or the "National Inquirer" to find out what people are doing. He doesn't have to consult your family or friends to find out what you are thinking; He already knows it about you and everyone else on earth. That fact will give you pause if you dwell upon it.
Omnipresence is a theological term that refers to the unlimited nature of God or His ability to be everywhere at all times. Relying upon Webster's once again, we see omnipresence defined as "presence in every place at the same time; unbounded or universal presence; ubiquity." Unlike the idols of ancient cultures or the mythical gods of Greek and Roman culture, God is not limited to one altar, one temple or one geographic area. God reveals Himself in His word as being everywhere. God was present as Lord in all creation (Ps 139:7-12), and there is no escaping Him.
When I was growing up, children would sometimes taunt each other with, "My dad can beat up your dad." Of course, no one ever found out if it were true because parents were more mature than seven year olds. I know now that it is true. Despite my periodic despair and disbelief, my Father will triumph. He always has before and there is no reason, especially now, why He won't again. But it goes much further than just God's ultimate victory over Satan at the end of this age.
God knows all things, He sees all things and He is everywhere all of the time. God is the Creator of all and through His power, He holds all things together. He plays many roles in the lives of His children; He is our Comforter, our Savior, our Redeemer and our Friend. Nay, He is more than that; He is our Father who renews our strength and our spirit. Nothing is hidden from Him and nothing is beyond His power.
27 Why do you say, O Jacob, and complain, O Israel, "My way is hidden from the LORD; my cause is disregarded by my God"? 28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. 29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isa. 40:27-31 (NIV)
During the end times of the church age, people will grow weary; they will stumble and fall. However, those who rely upon the Lord for strength instead of their own power and abilities will be renewed. They will not just walk or run but they will soar like eagles.
Soaring is an attitude based upon faith in the power of God and the acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Are you soaring with the eagles or are you chained to this earth with its worries, frustrations and hardships? You could be soaring if the all-knowing, all-powerful, all-seeing God of the universe is your hope and your strength. It's your choice.
Thank you to http://www.raptureready.com/index.php for the good links!
The next article will blow your mind. For some reason, Obama feels the need to control everything, which requires taking that control FROM someone. The internet infrastructure is built on customers buying what they want and can afford and the providers battling to serve the customer better, meet their needs and come up with new things to entice them or solve a problem. Obama wants to interfere with the natural progression of the way this business builds and interject control, regulations, rules, restrictions and so on, to fix it. Was it broke? No, but he wants you to fear him and buckle until you don't think without clearing it through your Obama filter first. That is not being a Christian as you proclaim Obama. Being a Christian is not invoking rules and regulations beyond what God's holy word says. Your role is to SERVE us. You are an elected public official. YOU SERVE US. We do NOT SERVE you. A servant does not control the master. Every public official is bound to serve the American people and stand to protect our freedoms and maintain our liberties and our REPUBLIC so we can keep her. You should not be pushing anything down our throats! If you desire a database with all our information, then what innocent thing do you plan to do with it?
Obama, after you write all our names on your blackboard in an attempt to embarrass and shame us, remember how important you said it was to embrace our differences. Looks like you are a hypocrite with some power and control issues. Step down if you can not step up! By the way, where is your birth certificate and where are your college records? If they exist, show them. We have to show our records to get a license, etc., yet to run the country, it isn't required of you? Yes, it is! You want to demand respect and punish those who dissent, yet - you say this without following the rules yourself!
Here is the other article I promised thanks to http://www.pyrabang.com/view.php?ref=Chromedaffodils&post_id=40898 - share and comment below! Thank you!
MILLIONS UNDER SURVEILLANCE BY OBAMA'S NEW INTERNET SPY PROGRAM

The Obama White House "new media" operations Czar recently contracted a technology vendor to conduct an enormous secret program to gather personal information on millions of Americans from Internet social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter, according to the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC).
The Obama minions are interested in information such as comments, tag lines, emails, audio, and video that mention -- or related to -- President Barack Obama.
The sites targeted for surveillance include Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, YouTube, Flickr and others –- any space where the White House "maintains a presence."
According to the NLPC, this is the third controversy involving the White House internet operations in less than a month.
During the heated health care debate, President Obama asked Americans to send information about critics of the White House health care effort to a special White House email address. The ensuing firestorm of caused the White House to terminate the email address (email@example.com) and the web site created for that purpose.
Subsequently, Fox News White House correspondent Major Garrett uncovered the Obama Administration sending email spam from the White House supporting the President's health care position. Again the White House was forced to back down.
Now the same people at the White House are at it again with an ambitious plan to harvest huge amounts of information from the web and specifically social networking sites, according to NLPC.
And the news media silence on this latest politically-charged action is deafening, according to conservative journalists.
Last week, NewsWithViews.com reported on Obama's intention to appoint a so-called Cyber Czar. During a White House announcement televised on Fox News, CNN and other news networks, Obama said he will appoint a cyber security coordinator -- or Cyber Czar -- for the critical infrastructure that all Americans depend on.
"We will ensure that these networks are secure, trustworthy and resilient," he said. "We will deter, prevent, detect and defend against attacks, and recover quickly from any disruptions or damage."
The cyber security office will orchestrate and integrate all cyber security policies for the government, the president said. It will work closely with the Office of Management and Budget to ensure agency budgets reflect those priorities, and, in the event of major cyber incident or attack, it will coordinate government response.
But Critics point out that any high-tech program that entails government intrusion should be carefully monitored by not only the US Congress but also private sector experts in cyber security and computer-based espionage.
"People went ballistic when they discovered the Bush White House authorized the interception of telephone and other electronic communications by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and rightly so. Yet, I haven't heard a peep from these same people who claim they are concerned with 'privacy rights,'" said security expert and former NYPD cop Mike Fitzgerald.
"This may come back to haunt us as the first step down a truly slippery slope," said former the Police detective and director of security.
"The technology involved is so complicated that it may take computer scientists to discover whether the government is protecting Americans on the worldwide web or spying on them. And what are businesses that rely on the Internet supposed to do if the President closes down the Internet?" asks Sam McCarthy a former police commander now a computer security expert..
The cyber infrastructure is not limited to the federal government. The office will work with state and local governments and international partners to combat cyber attacks, and also will work with the private sector to ensure an organized and unified response to future cyber incidents, Obama stated.
Experts agree that America's economic prosperity in the 21st century will depend on cyber security, which also affects public safety and national security. However, most experts contacted by NewsWithViews.com said that cyber security should be the responsibility of the private sector not government officials.
"We count on computer networks to deliver our oil and gas, our power and our water," said McCarthy.
"Computers help run public transportation networks from the skies to subways, he noted, and hackers have launched attacks on electrical grids," he added.
Part of the Obama program is a national campaign to promote cyber security awareness and digital literacy. The effort also will be part of the president's initiative to build a digital work force for the 21st century. However, according to security experts, Obama is seeking powers never before given to a President even during the height of the Cold War.
"Once Americans realize what's happening it may be too late thanks to Obama's supporters in the news media. Do a search and you won't see stories about this power grab in the major media," warns Baker.

The database was created by the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) with assistance from our client, PLoS Medicine, a medical journal published by the non-profit Public Library of Science. Today UCSF made all of the ghostwriting evidence that we unearthed available to the public for free in its Drug Industry Document Archive (DIDA). The addition of the Wyeth ghostwriting documents to DIDA enables researchers, students, journalists, or any other member of the public to investigate the ways in which ghostwriting threatens the integrity of medical science and to learn more about how the pharmaceutical industry secretly influences the messages conveyed by medical journal articles so that the practice of ghostwriting can be called to an end.
The ghostwriting documents can be found by entering "ddu:2009*" without the quotation marks in the search box on DIDA's home page, which is available at http://dida.library.ucsf.edu. Any other search term (subject matter, author, organization, etc.) may be added in the search box along with "ddu:2009*" to focus the search.

Public Justice's legal team in the effort to unseal the documents included Goldberg, Waters & Kraus Fellow Amy Radon, Morgan "Chip" Welch of Welch and Kitchens, LLC in North Little Rock, Ark., and Public Justice Staff Attorney Leslie Brueckner. The New York Times, represented by Gerry Schulze of Eubanks, Baker & Schulze in Little Rock, Ark and George Freeman, Assistant General Counsel for the New York Times also challenged the secrecy in this case. And the plaintiffs' steering committee counsel -- led by James F. Szaller of Brown & Szaller in Cleveland, Ohio, and Erik B. Walker of Hissey, Kientz & Herron, P.L.L.C, in Houston, Texas -- were central to the efforts to unseal these documents. We thank them all.

Watching politicians, celebrities and other famous people losing it creates an assumption that it is acceptable. It makes it glamorous. desirable. Then the puppet shepherds will be directing you to violence. Refrain. Have conviction, have restraint. Watch for your word from the true shepherd, you will know his voice.
Don't lose it, then they gain it.
They WANT everyone to be decensitized by this, then they hope WE act this way, THEN they have JUST CAUSE to incarcerate YOU! DO NOT Submit to their psychological suggestion. They laugh at your failure, Breathe, turn off the tv, appreciate nature for days, pray God gives you wisdom & discernment, then keep on YOUR PATH that God directed you on and don't let them pull you onto theirs, for there is room for one and they will run you over. God has a plan for your life - and THAT, is what they fear the most!
Calm, cool, collected, phone a friend and discuss something beautiful. Fight the propaganda with your own, of peace, focusing on God's beauty and desire, giving him the glory.
Stay focused and disciplined. Do not lose sight.
Tell me something beautiful God has shown you this week, or how he is working in your life! :0) I got to see a wonderful friend I have not seen in years and it was a wonderful time! :0)

There are materials that go alone with this, asking what Obama is asking for them to do and basically how they can serve him & politicians and so on, this is more than a speech. As with Obama, when is anything as it seems. Change - change what? - I have yet to see anything change for the better. How is that job you lost, your gas you can't afford and the dollar in your pocket (if you even have one), that's worth a few cents in all reality - ya, change - that is what you are left with, and that will be gone soon if it's not already. Leaving you to rely on govt., only for them to impose upon you the loss of more freedoms, until they own you. If you sincerely like that, move to China.
Oh, on a more humorous note:
Wasn't this administration supposed to poop pretty unicorns? And weren't we promised that everyone who voted for him would turn to gold? Where are the fairies that with a touch of their sparkling wand turn enemies into BFF's?
Okay, anyway, seriously, he spoke on inclusion and claims to be against racism, yet everywhere he goes to speak, he requires the discrimination, not the celebration of the culture of those who welcomed him in to speak.
Search"Obama Georgetown speech" for one and you will see he required they HIDE the name of Jesus on the stage where he spoke. If he wanted to celebrate our differences, why require people to hide their beliefs? Why not celebrate what is unique about us all?
I don't care if you like him or support him, that is your free will and choice and I will not silence you. I believe this administration, as the last one, is knowingly or not, degrading the foundation of our country and they need to be repairing it.
From another Patriot:
Absence Excuse Suggestion:
To Whom it May Concern:
When it comes to teaching my child about personal responsibility and life goals, I have determined that I am a far better teacher of those objectives than a President who has chosen to surround himself with known anarchists and terrorists.
Therefore, <insert child's name> will be at home on Sept 8th in order not to be corrupted by the propaganda that will be shown in his class room.

It looks like it is over for politics as usual in America! True change has taken place and the tide has turned. Now, watch those stuck in paradigms of politics they created - fail and fall to the wayside, as new, stronger, smarter leaders take hold in this brave new world where right is right and wrong is wrong and the differences are clear. This is a must-see video!
