212 Degrees -- The Extra Degree.flv

From India, Mumbai
After viewing the 212 Movie, I felt constrained to offer a response.

• Steam may power a locomotive, but anyone who gets too close to that steam in action will get scalded;

• Every Indy 500 driver had already decided to give his full effort to his single goal, a very limited and unique calling and playing field, and there is no room for any passengers in his car, and he only gathers around him those who will work for his victory and a share of the spoils;

• The idolized and glorified Lance Armstrong (who has been determined to have an extremely unique body chemistry) was finally divorced by his wife (I wonder if he has noticed her absence).

• Every runner in a track meet runs alone, his only relationship with those around him being a competitive one, and with those strangers on the sidelines being a glory one;

• Steam has very limited use compared to H20 in liquid form:

• Tea is brewed best with water heated just below 200 degrees;

• Even excessively warm water can scald frost-bitten hands;

• Tepid water best washes our hands;

• A soak in the tub, a hot shower, an embracing hot tub had better not approach 200;

• Water does not heat itself, so there is no general virtue in always taking it to 212 degrees;

• And, when we do, it is not by means of extraordinary effort on our part, but by simply leaving the heat source in contact a little longer;

• Show me a person who consistently gives 110% in his vocation who doesn’t eventually “burn” his wife and children, if not his own physical body and psyche, which was designed by God to give 100% only with a rhythm of withdrawal and rest;

• If there is a biblical principle relating to how we ought to live our lives that can be appropriately attached to the 212 Principle, other than that of sensible, balanced, and appropriate stewardship, I can’t readily think of one;

• Jesus could have won any foot race, been the unbeatable race car designer and driver, healed people and fed people relentlessly (as many pastors attempt to do) and even could have demonstrated a 213 Principle at his temptation or on the cross, but his purposes were defined otherwise.

I find the 212 Principle a clever falsehood which implies a character definition embodying only head-turning productivity, and not quality of spirit and character that considers others better than themselves. Our culture has become addicted to productivity, turning what was a virtue into an idol.
