No sequel for Mrs Doubtfire

Mon, Aug. 25, 2014 Posted: 01:33 AM


Robin Williams was everyone's favourite nanny and we gather that Fox 2000 was planning a sequel. In the original film, the comedian played a recently divorced actor who used his talents to transform himself into a Scottish nanny Euphegenia Doubtfire so that he could see more of his three young children.

Just one day after his shocking suicide, beloved comic Robin Williams, 63, was secretly cremated and laid to rest off the coast of California's Marin County. His ashes were said to be scattered in the San Francisco Bay near his famed Mrs Doubtfire house. His widow, Susan Schneider, has confirmed that Williams was privately facing the early stages of Parkinson's disease, along with battles with depression and anxiety, prior to his death.

I have never seen a Robin Williams movie that was not brilliant and enjoyable … and Mrs Doubtfire seemed so wholesome to watch with many lessons . Still … It is now almost laughable to suggest as in Deuteronomy 22:5 which deals with the issue of men dressing in women’s clothing and vice versa that we all were amused at what God hates. In this passage in Deuteronomy, God commands that a woman is not to wear that which pertains to a man and a man is not to wear that which pertains to a woman, for all that do so are an “abomination.” Modern day fashion have made this admonition almost ludicrous, but it still remains in the Bible and His word never returns void.

Deu 22:5  The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.

I have always wondered why the admonitions have always provided the most exciting and bankable themes for entertainment. Search for all the references to abomination and the act and you will find the source of the most popular of today’s funs, comedies and jesting. I observe another popular Christian who has made millions from cross dressing in films and I wonder why God gives us His laws when we can get away and even benefit from making mockery of them or do we?… Did God make his laws for Christians only or for God’s profit?

Job 22:2  Can a man be profitable unto God, as he that is wise may be profitable unto himself? 3 Is it any pleasure to the Almighty, that thou art righteous? or is it gain to him, that thou makest thy ways perfect? 4 Will he reprove thee for fear of thee? will he enter with thee into judgment?

Does God reprove us and warn us in His Book because He is afraid of us and wants mankind under control? Some say the New Testament has updated the old laws … I always wonder which of the laws were cancelled and which remain … Can we now kill? Are we free because of grace to call the name of the Lord in vain? God warns that it shall be ill with those who trifle with His laws. Can this be put more plainly … and God is no respecter of persons.

Isa 3:10 Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. 11 Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.

I pray someone will warn of the dangers of portraying what God calls an abomination, as amusement even if it appears to teach parenting or other virtues. There is an enemy of our soul, and God created us to overcome Him, but only if we realize that He made us and knows more about us than we the created can ever discover. But He has given us His word for our own benefit, so that it will be always well with us. Why must we court more and more dangers in disobedience … only to find ourselves in the quicksand. Christ stretches out His hand of grace …but this hand is the truth as written in the unchangeable word of God. Jesus Christ promises us rest for our soul when we come to Him. May God help us all.
