A little fun "Movie Trivia".... Brendan Penny and Sarah Lancaster have also starred together in another Hallmark movie - anyone remember which one?



    Did Jesus give Peter and the apostles the authority to forgive individuals of their sins before and after they became Christians? Do contemporary pastors and priests have the authority to forgive Christians of their sins? The answer is no, no, and no.


    Mark 2:1-7....... "Why does this man speak that way? He is blaspheming; who can forgive sins but God alone.(NASB)

    Jesus was God on earth, He had the authority to forgive sins. The apostles were not God on earth. Contemporary pastors and priest are not God on earth. For anyone other than God to claim they have the authority to forgive sin is blasphemous.

    Isaiah 43:15-25 "I am the Lord, your Holy One.....25 "I even I, am the one who wipes out your transgressions for My own sake, And I will not remember your sins.(NASB)

    No preachers, pastors, apostles, nor priests can wipe out transgressions. Only God forgives sin.

    Micah 7:18 Who is a God like You who pardons iniquity...(NASB)

    The apostle Peter nor any apostle had the power to pardon sins. There is not an example in the New Testament Scriptures where any apostle said to an individual nor a group of people I forgive you of your sins.

    Jesus gave Peter the keys to the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 16:9) Jesus not give Peter and the apostles the authority to grant forgiveness to men. Only God forgives sin.

    Peter used the keys on the Day of Pentecost. The keys were faith, repentance, and immersions in water. (Acts 2:22-41)
    Peter did not say I or we the apostles forgive you of your sins against God, nor did he say that to anyone Christians subsequently. [Terms of pardon:FAITH John 3:16, REPENTANCE Acts 3:19, CONFESSION Romans 10:9, IMMERSION IN WATER Acts 2:38, Mark 16:16]

    There is no Scriptures that teaches that apostles, preachers, pastors, priests, nor the church as the power of absolution. Only God forgives sin.

    1 John 2:1 My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous;(NASB)

    The apostle John did not tell those in the body of Christ to ask for absolution for theirs sins by asking the church, the priest nor the pastor to grant them forgiveness from their sins against God.


    We know that, John 20:23, does not mean the apostles, priests, pastors, nor the church has the authority to forgive men of their sins against God.

    Teaching the gospel plan of salvation to men does not mean the teacher has the authority to forgive sin.

    Praying for fellow church members does not mean that the one who prays has the authority to forgive sins.


    1. Steve, As a Christian myself, I appreciate the passion you have for your faith.

      I'm not sure why you shared this here, but God bless you and I hope others who wish to discuss this further will visit your site.

    2. Amen Steve:) I had to do a double take and remember that I was still on It's a Wonderful Movie blog Lol I wondered if I had clicked on another site by mistake. What you stated is the truth of God's word. Thank you for sharing with all of us! I pray that millions of believers and non believers visit your blog and have the opportunity to be saved according to the word of God.

  2. He looks familiar, but not sure???

  3. I can't place him, did they have any scenes together in their previous Hallmark movie?

  4. Is he the cousin from Fir Crazy?

  5. Love Sarah Lancaster, but I've never seen him before.

    1. Yeah, she's an actress I love to watch on Hallmark, too... And whenever I've seen her interviewed she's always personable and sweet!

  6. I think it was Along Came a Nanny! Cute movie with Sarah Lancaster and Cameron Matheson, but Brendon Penny was in it, too. Looking forward to seeing them in this Christmas flick.

    1. You got it! That's the one, Deb! Those who don't have HMM - didn't have the opportunity to see the Along Came a Nanny, but it's a fun little mystery!!! Glad you think it's cute, too! Should be fun to see them together again in this new Christmas movie!

    Net -- What do you know of this "Christmas in the Smokies" movie starring Sarah Lancaster, Jill Wagner, Barry Corbin and others?

    I happened to come across the title the other day, when I was trying to look for info on something else, and I didn't know what it was. Then I saw that someone else mentioned the same title on Facebook today. Is there another title for the movie? Is it going to debut on UP or Ion, I wonder? Is it straight to DVD?

    You can find it listed on IMDB.

  8. Sherry - I received your message on another Christmas movie. I have been keeping it under wraps, for months for one particular network- who is airing it this year. I will see if I can get some info and I'll be sure to post it and your message, which I'm going to hold on to for now.

    1. Sherry In CaliforniaFriday, October 16, 2015

      Okay! I'm glad to know you got it Net, and that the message about that movie (which I won't mention here) didn't get lost in cyberspace again! Lol. As I mentioned in that message, I encountered the title the other day, when looking for something else online. For some reason I didn't think twice about it at the time. And then I saw someone else mention it today, so I knew I wasn't the only one who had seen the title. I don't know where that person saw it (if it was the same place I saw it), but we both saw it.

    2. The secrecy. :|

      Net -- I saw that the secret movie I mentioned to you (in the post that was hidden) is up on a specific TV channel's website, with the air date. Maybe now is the time for you to announce it, since it's on a website? I just posted a link to that page on another website, and I assume that is the same channel you thought it might air on? (By the way, I am also wondering if that's the channel where "The Christmas Truce" will end up too.)

      I've not heard of any other Christmas movies officially slated to air on that specific channel -- other than the one we have NOT been mentioning! Lol -- but it seems that there should be at least a couple of new ones, and I guess this one that you have been waiting to announce will be one of them.

    4. Thank you for your comment and information, Sherry. I passed it along to the network and wanted you to know... that particular channel will be officially announcing the film next week. I will also be announcing next week, as well, and am most excited to do so - as this looks like one of those Christmas movies that is a definite must see!!!

  9. I'm sooooo excited for this year's Holiday movies:) I love being on here with all of you all that love the holiday's as much as I do:) I wish we could all meet face to face:) One day we will! Have a blessed Holiday Season

    1. That is so sweet, Stacey! That means so much to me!!! I'm glad you feel at home here... you are certainly surrounded by kindred spirits and friends who all Love Christmas Movies!!!

      Thank you for commenting!!!

      God's Blessings to You and Yours!!! :)
