THE ANIMATION IS BASED ON
The parable of the Prodigal son (Best explained in John MacArthur's sermon "A Tale of Two Sons"),
and the sermons titled "The love of God" by Paul Washer
Hooley Dooley! I was wondering why so many people were checking my animation out. One of the featured movies...... Thanks Tom and/or everyone involved.
Messege well delivered, after watching it what I got was rebirthing, renewing yourself from one's self, I read the description and it's well delivered.
Thank you. Though it was not anything that she did, it was all the kings doing that renewed her.
doog job ya flasher,tho the story is abit ...um..what is it about?
:D thanks. Basically it's about the "parable of the prodigal son".
Great animation and music. A bit confused on the story though. I understand the whole child rejecting father only to again return to the father's arms after experiencing the world's harshness bit (although your rendition changes the meaning of the parable subtly). What I don't get is if the robot is a daughter from the beginning, a son that transforms into a daughter (the whole scene where he is picked up by a female robot makes me think this even though it is strange), or simply an androgynous robot that finds a sex when discovering her humanity. I guess the last one makes the most sense to me. If the robot is androgynous then that, one could argue, emphasizes it's lack of humanity that is only discovered upon returning to the father's embrace.
Also, on a side note, I think the parable loses some of its meaning when father seeks out the child. This way it becomes more about how the father protects his children and less about how the father forgives his children. Still there is meaning to this retelling, so it does hold water.
Well as a robot she just followed whatever felt good to her, she is female but that wouldn't matter to her.
Yes it does lose a lot of the meaning from the parable. But in the parable it says something like"While the prodigal was still a long way off the father ran to him and embraced him"
Thanks for your comment
What does it mean to be human?
In the animation, to be human means, having a new nature that is able to love God. and having a new body that is justified from sin and free from the curse of following it.
Your animation does something with the story that I've not seen before, it expresses the reaction that many people have to the message "I love you". At first the idea of God loving me was a wonderful one, but over years of silence from heaven, "I love you" was the most hurtful thing anyone could say. I know what it's liked to be loved by a father, and God does not do that. Giving me life is not love, because life is suffering. The continual message "God loves you" becomes meaningless, even the reverse of its message. I like how your animation expresses that at the beginning where the robot crushes the message, I wonder if people in general understand the depth of what's going on there.
Going up to a stranger and saying "Jesus loves you" is annoying. Most modern churches ignore our inner sinfulness, depravity and rebellion to God but that is the thing which makes the need for Him make sense.
