~~~~~~Excerpt From Sandsy Simpson's DITC Newsletter, announcing Son of God discernment reviews:
"Notice the uncanny similarity between the "Jesus" portrayed by the Diogo Morgado, the actor who plays him in "Son Of God" on the left and the two pictures of "Sananda"on the right that Roma has "talked to" by the use of New Age channeling."

~~~~~~Excerpt From Mike Oppenheimer's review (Part 2) of the Son of God movie (Read Part 1 & Part 2)
“And here is the most concerning and enlightening piece of information.
Roma Downey, President of LightWorkers Media states, LightWorkers Media [http://www.lightworkersmedia.com/homepage.htm] is committed to creating programs that are positive, uplifting and inspirational” - Roma Downey, President.
So what, what’s wrong with this? When we learn what Light workers (the name is certainly representative) is about then it all comes together. As we see others who use the same term and what they believe; coincidence? As you read further it should become clear if hasn’t already.
On a new age website called Lightworkers “As Lightworkers, we are creating a vision more suited to humanities evolving divine nature.”
This is the new age message of transformation process into who we really are as we become aware of self.
“As conscious beings we are born perfect, we have within us the seed of divine awareness. Enlightenment is our true nature” http://lightworkers.org/node/5297
While Downey has no direct connection to this website she does have the same spirituality.
When I saw the person playing Jesus in the movie I immediately identified an uncanny similarity to the Jesus of the new age - Sananda. This is someone I’m familiar with when I was a new ager before I became a Christian, a strange coincidence.
The picture on the left is the “Son of God” in the movie by Lightworkers Media. The other two beside him are pictures of Sananda.
Sananda is not Jesus. Sananda is a spirit being channeled by New Agers.
Some may take the attitude of being happy that Hollywood actually produce a film about Jesus. These are usually the same people who cannot discern truth from error that is increasing all around us. We should not settle for the lowest common denominator.”
