Why I Support Faith-Based Films…

One of the most discouraging things about being a Christian filmmaker are the blood-thirsty ‘critics’, both secular and Christian, who attack our films. Of course, I remember Jay Schroeder, the former NFL quarterback saying the worst thing he hated about playing football was enduring the sports critics who never wore a jock-strap. I guess it’s the same with me – movie critics who’ve never picked up a camera.

However, I’ve learned just to forgive. The Lord has blessed me so much – I’ve directed 6 films that have reached over 96 million households on TV and in the theaters.

Here’s 3 important verses in Scripture that every ‘critic’ needs to read before bashing films that honor God:

Isaiah 5:20-21

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight.

2 Chronicles 19:2

Jehu the seer, the son of Hanani, went out to meet him and said to the king, “Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the LORD? Because of this, the wrath of the LORD is upon you

John 15:18-19
If the people of this world hate you, just remember that they hated me first. If you belonged to the world, its people would love you. But you don’t belong to the world. I have chosen you to leave the world behind, and that is why its people hate you.

‘Suing the Devil’ opens March 2011.

It’s amazing how fast a year goes as you get older.

2010 was the best year of my life.

I feel I’m really walking close to the Lord and listening to Him.

‘Suing the Devil’ is my best film and the one I’m the most proud of after ‘Live Fast, Die Young’. It opens in theaters in March. Please pray for it. That it really opens the eyes of a jaded world in search of peace. The spiritual battle has been fierce around the film, but we never backed down. And God rewarded us for it.

I want to wish all of you – my friends – a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.

God is great!

Political Christians

I keep meeting political Christians where ever I go.

And it’s a tragedy.

Jesus Christ was not political. There were many times he could have discussed Rome’s politics of the day. It was well-known that whatever was discussed in the Forum of Trajan and the Pantheon spread throughout all of the Roman empire.

Yet Jesus never engaged in the politics of the day – he focused on the Gospel.

I don’t care who wins in 2012. I care about lost souls. I care about the imminent return of our Lord and Savior.
