Cornelio 1 John Cornelio Mr. Newland HRE4MU November 14, 2010 Moses Goes To The Movies The call of Moses is a perfect illustration that God will work with anyone who is willing to enter his realm. God perfectly led Moses every step of the way the minute he decided to accept God’s call on his life.

Moses' story proves that God can and will take each Christian on their own unique, individual and exciting journey with him if they would only be willing to take that leap of faith and fully surrender their entire lives.

At first, he refuses to be an archbishop because he thinks that he is not qualified and the public will not support him. He questions the priest in the church about his appointment as an archbishop, “What should I do?” The priest shook his head and said, “What God wants.” After that scene, he finally authorize himself as an archbishop through God. For Eli, it takes place when he sees the Bible. After the catastrophic destruction of the nuclear war, Eli holds the last Bible in the world knowing that he has power that can bring back order to humanity. There is no civilization and no law. The roads belong to gangs that would murder a man for his shoes and canteen of water. Eli becomes a warrior to preserve and protect the bible from the gangs. Furthermore, this uproots Oscar Romero and Eli’s lives that calls them away from being an ordinary man. The second segment of the call story is the introductory speech. For Oscar Romero, it
