Notes on PP's dumb movie, pt 1

AKA Beyond Jordan

- I’ve gotta say, the aerial shots are enjoyable.

- PP says the goal of the trip is to visit as many biblical sites as possible. I do not believe that showcasing the holy land was ever the only goal of the film from the very beginning based on what I already know. Like the #FreePalestine he attached to the description of the film on Youtube.

- PP isn’t even 100% sure the Israeli govt will let him in.

- Watching PP and Roger Jimenez joke about all of the countries PP has been banned from is eye roll worthy. It’s not really something to be proud of.

- Airplane shots are pure filler. We get a shot of a random Jewish guy donning tefillin on the plane.

- They let PP in. It’s almost as if he’s not as important and (in)famous as he thinks he is. 🙄

- The generic ~eastern~ music is predictably here to remind us we’re in the Middle East.

- PP washes his face with water from the Jordan river. He says it’s kind of salty.

- Listening to Jimenez preach at Herod’s fortress is such a snooze fest.

- We see the Dead Sea and a member of PP’s entourage points out how there is all this salt on the shore, but the first thing I see is litter. PP dives in headfirst and gets salt in his eyes. They all then proceed to float in the Dead Sea like you’re supposed to, and it’s supposedly one of the weirdest things EVER. 🙄

- They go to the Church of the Nativity and PP manages to avoid making an ass of himself on camera. We get to hear the tour guide sing the Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic which his kinda neat.

- PP gives Bethlehem’s water a rave review.

- PP moans about all of the idolatry in Bethlehem and the “false religion.”

- I start passing skipping the mini sermons that come with each site around this point.

- At Petra PP talks about why he was hesitant to visit the holy land before now; He doesn’t support the “modern, fake state of Israel.” Blah, blah, blah. Then he goes into how all of the sites they’ve visited so far aren’t even in Israel. He makes it a point to tell the viewers that at this point, they haven't even gone to Israel and everything we’ve seen so far has been in Jordan or Palestine.

- They hit the rewind button to show us how this trip REALLY went. They arrived in Amman, Jordan and crossed into the West Bank.

I paused at this point because I'm tired and can only watch the Pisser for so long. The film is almost 2 hrs long. I can tell the focus is probably shifting from "look at all of these cool holy sites" to PP whinging about Israel real soon.

I'm not doing a part 2 because it would be pointless. It's just extra footage. I still stand by my belief that this film is meant to double as a political statement that is laughable because PP doesn't care about others, and doesn't have the critical thinking abilities to take on a subject like a geopolitical conflict in any meaningful way. I think we all know that already, though.

      BEC because I'm in a bitchy mood: this past Sunday pic is one of the most unflattering of Braggie I've ever seen.  That dress is NOT doing her any favors; her boobs look smashed and the huge print doesn't suit her.  And she's wearing the hairstyle (if you can call it that) that makes her head look 10 miles long.  And the company she bought (or was probably gifted for IG exposure) the dresses from is run by Mormons.  Tsk tsk Braggie, your hypocrisy is showing again. :naughty:

      The 6/6 evening service at Walker Bible Baptist Church in Lansing MI begins with the guitar trio again, playing The Family of God again.

      Pastor Garver (aka Brother David) tells them his wife is now the "producer" of their service videos, and milks them for some applause for her, then says "she alright for a white girl, I'm tellin' ya, she's not bad at all." :wtf:

      He says the credits will list him as "extremely handsome pastor."

      Gary moans through the prayer, and the pastor announces that Gary will be coming back next June and they will be having a camp meeting under the tent. After some salvation-blather, he reminds them that Gary, the missionary coming to visit next week, and the parsonage project all need money.

      But only if God puts it on their hearts.

      The teens with the guitars sing a song I couldn't find anywhere, about how they can't wait until Sunday, because church. Then all sing At Calvary. The Hawkinses sing something - I fast forward.

      Pastor reminds them of Gary's need for $5000 for his truck before the offering.

      After the offering, the pastor tells them to "love on sister," meaning Becky, "livin' on the road's not easy, and she's also outnumbered in the house, so that can't make it to easy either."

      Becky says "No. I miss my girls."

      Gary comes up, and talks about his plans to come back. He may also see them in November, because he will be coming to Michigan for another church. He says the only thing he doesn't like about coming there in November is that "y'all could have snow," and some wag warns him "No cussin' in church," just in case.

      After his thank-yous, Gary announces a verse. It's very short - Proverbs 25:25: As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.

      With the help of the Lord, Gary wants to preach There is Good News.

      He does several minutes, of course, about how there is no good news from the TV, Facebook, radio, etc. It's from the pulpit - sometimes.

      Gary mentions the three heavens - I never heard him talk about that before.

      Gary has a comforter, and he tells them about how Brother McFadden is comforted. Some vague Becky-bashing follows.

      https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=romans+5%3A8&version=KJV

      Jesus loves Gary, and Gary can't figure out why, because he knows he doesn't deserve it.

      While talking about all of the things God gave him recently (that actually came from other people, of course), Gary tells us that, yesterday, God let him walk about a mile and a half from where his vehicle was broken down, and walk back with the part he needed.

      Yes, the van broke down yet again.

      https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+corinthians+15%3A57&version=KJV

      Gary's on the winning side. Screaming about this, back and forth, ensues.

      "Joe Bahden's a loser." Gary's not talking about the election, he's talking about  not being saved.

      He talks about Mrs. McFadden's great death again, and the preacher who fell over dead just after putting his money in the collection plate.

      Gary reads Hebrews 13:14 - well, sort of.

      KJV: For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.
      BGV: For here we - for here we have continuing cities, but we seek one to come.

      Somebody in the congregation beats Gary to the punch, and yells out "I'm looking for that city!" just before Gary starts to say it, so they overlap like a weird mindless-preaching round.

      Gary does his Heaven schtick.

      https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+john+1%3A9&version=KJV

      While yammering on about how forgiving God is, Gary tells them that sometimes he messes up and says something backwards or wrong, and Becky and Jacob always point it out to him later. He says "Well, you go up there an' trah it and see how it works out for you."

      https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+john+5%3A13&version=KJV

      Lots of shrieking back and forth about not being able to lose your salvation.  And, of course, the story about the Wesleyan teens who told Gary he could lose it if he died in the middle of a bad dream.

      https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=revelation+20%3A10&version=KJV

      He stumbles through this, messing up almost every word.

      "Out of all the people ah know, ah hate the devil." Gary screams about the devil for a while.

      "The blood. The devil hates the word blood."

      https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Acts++16%3A31&version=KJV

      Gary babbles to the end.

      I feel bad for Elizabeth. She’s only a teen and has to be the new family blogger and probably a bunch of other work on top of it.

      Eh... I wouldn't read to much into that.The Bonts are not good posters and things often are posted late -especially with Chelsy gone (who was the main blogger).

      JB had just enough influence to find someone who would keep Josh under house arrest.
