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.

The Genius Club as a ‘catchphrase’?

As I was surfing the net the other day, I saw a lot of new sites referring to join a ‘Genius Club’. One person even invited his fellow geniuses to join ‘The Genius Club’ party at his house. I think the title ‘The Genius Club’ has entered the public lexicon already in a short amount of time.

This is due to the increasing power of the internet. We’re still shooting for a March date in Los Angeles next.
