At one point J.J. mentioned that his hair was the way it was because he was Jewish and frazzled. When Abrams said he was Jewish I thought it was good that at least he wasn't a fool who believed there was no God (Atheists). However after listening to him talk and hearing the fowl language he used, including blasphemy, I doubted that he actually believed in the God of the Bible.
J.J. Abrams may be a good writer, a good director, but he's certainly not a good person. I pray that J.J. Abrams will take a close look at the 10 Commandments. I know God used them to show me my true nature. What do the 10 commandments have to do with being a good person? Well, think of it like this, you may think you're a good person until you look at the ten commandments. Let me show you:
The ninth commandment is out shall not lie (bear false witness). Have you ever told a lie? If you have, that makes you a liar. Have you ever stolen anything? That's the eight commandment. If you've stolen, regardless of it's value, that makes you a thief. So that's just two of the ten commandments... And if you've broken those, you're a lying thief. That doesn't sound like a very good person does it? And think of how many times you've done those things.
I mentioned blasphemy before, that's taking God's name in vein, using it irreverently. Abrams did this multiple times in his talk.
The Bible says it's appointed once for man to die, and after comes the judgement. That means if J.J. Abrams was to die today, he'd have to face God, and he'd be guilty. We only looked at three of the ten commandments, and that's enough to condemn Abrams, and me. What about you?
Sounds like the self proclaimed Jewish director J. J. Abrams is in trouble. The Bible warns that if he dies in his sins (sin is breaking God's Laws) he'll not only end up in hell, but be there forever. God is so just and good that he hates sin. He HATES SIN. So, in addition to hoping that J.J. Abrams doesn't die soon, I hope that he doesn't die in his sins.
You, or he, might wonder J.J. Abrams has already sinned, so how is it possible that he wouldn't die in his sins. Well, the same God that hates sin, also is rich in mercy. God made a way for sinful people like me and J.J. Abrams to get their sins forgiven, thus they won't die in their sins. What's the way?
Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life. That's what Jesus said. Jesus Christ is God's Son who was sent to earth to be the Way that not only could our sins be forgiven but His righteousness was given to us. Whoa, I'll back up in case I lost you. Think about it like this. We broke God's Law and Jesus paid our fine. Jesus lived a perfect, sinless, life. Then he suffered and died on the cross as a payment for sin.
This means that J.J. Abrams and anyone else who hasn't needs to realize that they've sinned against God. Realize that he is not nearly good enough to go to heaven and very qualified to go to hell (like me) because of their sins. J.J. Abrams needs to then understand that Jesus Christ is the only way he can enter heaven and then trust that Jesus died on the cross for his sins.
I pray for J.J. Abrams and I hope that he will repent and trust in Jesus Christ. I don't put J.J. Abrams up on a pedestal and it's not like I want him to go to heaven anymore than anyone else. I just saw him today and I felt compelled to write this and attempt to share the gospel with him or anyone else that reads it.
Right now J.J. Abrams is truly LOST. If you're a Christian reading this, please join me in praying that J.J. Abrams will repent of his sins and trust in the Way, Jesus Christ.

NOTE: To be very clear, I do not dislike J.J. Abrams in any way. I liked The show LOST (until the sixth season). And I am in no way upset at J.J. Abrams.
