Jesus to the rescue

From Pastor Buck's blog:
This video is definitely worth five minutes of your time. It creatively portrays the following truth: “You, dear, children, are from God and have overcome them, because the One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. . . everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.” (I John 4:4, 5:4)

The video is basically from a play, contemporary Christian music is the soundtrack, and depicts a young woman experiencing a new relationship with the Jesus character. But then the cares and influences of the world creep in, distracting the young woman, and drawing her away from her loving relationship with Jesus.
Things soon turn bad, as they always do when you forget about Jesus (sarcasm). Jesus is off to the side, wooing her back, but to no avail.
Jesus finally jumps in to protect her from her bad choices (audience breaks into cheers and applause).
What a wonderfully appealing story, if only it were true, as Pastor Buck claims. Being a sensitive atheist guy, I even felt a tug of emotion as I watched Jesus hold back all the bad in the world from reaching the young woman. But as life continually proves, it is just a story. A myth. Strip away the music, the facial expressions, the choreographed dancing, and all you have left is a few sentences in an old book. That's all.
