With the breakdown of homes and families in society, there is a growing need for direction and guidance regarding manhood. Even if you have already seen the movie Courageous, watch this behind the scenes look with interviews and be encouraged. The following video helps to put together the aspects of what is at the heart of the movie Courageous. It has now been released on DVD. If you didn't get a chance to see it at the theaters, you will definitely want to see it on DVD.
Considering the opposition one may experience when sharing the Gospel during evangelism outreaches, it is refreshing to hear the story of an atheist coming to Christ. You'll want to listen to this testimony as it reveals some very helpful insights as to how those who spoke to him during an outreach were able to keep the focus on the Gospel. Listen to what happened as he journeyed and searched for truth and came to find the answer through Jesus Christ by the reading of the Scriptures which testify of God's salvation. Be inspired and encouraged to continue sharing the Good News.
Perhaps you're heard the question asked... maybe you've even used it as a reason to justify abortion. Consider the testimony of this woman and listen to what she experienced and think about what she says about having an abortion after being raped. This woman makes some clear statements from personal experience that will help you to think through the issues when a person wants to use the cause of rape as a reason to support the idea of abortion.
NOTE: Don't let the title of the YouTube video throw you off, listen to what the woman said she experienced and think about what she is saying. Notably, rape is a VERY difficult matter for anyone to experience and this is not to make light what they experienced, but is to consider the decisions that she made afterward.
Whether you have seen the full video documentary entitled 180 Movie or not, this video is the full interview with Alicia -- a woman who appears in the full-length documentary by Living Waters. What is quite amazing and interesting is how the questions are related to the experiences Alicia has already had even before she arrived for the video interview. Having watched this clip all the way to the end, one can connect how this all fits together.
In the interview, Alicia was asked some difficult questions in order to present her with a perspective regarding the value of human life. In the process, she was then asked to think about her current views on abortion. She then went from being pro-choice to valuing human life and coming into an understanding of how she needed to think of the situation with a new perspective.
Watch how she goes through the process. You 'll also get to hear her responses to the questions pertaining to the afterlife.

With a world which seems to have lost touch with what it means to be a father, the new movie release from Sherwood Pictures will hopefully bring a renewed sense of a long forgotten and yet biblically based concept of the centrality of the father as the leader of the home. Of such leadership, spiritual leadership is primary and the only way for that to be worthwhile and lasting is for it to be grounded in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
It is important to support films which support Christian values. Be sure to see Courageous and invite others to see a movie that will hopefully do for men and families what Fireproof has done for marriages. See the importance of the Gospel message included in the story and inspire men to be the leaders God designed them to be from the beginning.

Sidenote: When at the theater, you may want to beware of other movie trailers that come before the film... sometimes these can be quite concerning.

In a world where gender roles are currently eroding and even the Bible has been undergoing attempts at revision to remove masculine references (consider the TNIV) and now the new 2011 NIV has some of the same tendencies, it is refreshing to think there is s a movie on the subject of manhood and what it means to be a man.
From a report received so far from a third party, it sounds like a promising film. While directly addressing a major issue regarding the breakdown of the family and a loss of fatherhood in society, the hope is that there will be a strong evangelistic message.

Mark Cahill has released a new DVD which contains two messages with one on the "Holiness of God" and the other on "The Watchmen on the Wall." In Mark's January 2011 newsletter, the description for the Holiness of God message was the following:
The angels around the throne cry out, “Holy, Holy, Holy.” What is holiness? How am I supposed to imitate it? Understanding this supreme attribute of God will keep us from sinning, motivate us to witnessing and send us to praising!
The description for the second message entitled "The Watchmen on the Wall" was the following:
As this world continues to seemingly spin out of control, are you sounding the trumpet? Are you warning folks that God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked? Are you challenging people to flee the wrath to come that Luke 3 talks about? Watch this message, and start sounding the alarm!"

Occasionally you come across a view worth sharing when talking with a person who has no Biblical basis for understanding the issues related to abortion. While a Christian has the understandings of the Bible from which to help them comprehend God's view on the subject of abortion, unbelievers do not.
Though this discussion could be modified a bit more to take out the uncertainty regarding the considerations of abortion for the person being spoken to, it does set up an interesting construct for an unbeliever to consider and is something worth watching and thinking about how you might want to consider talking with a person in an evangelism encounter who is a pro-choice unbeliever.To view it, click here.
Background: What if you could see what your life would have been like if you had chosen to take a different path and married a different person in your life? In the telling of the story, the movie touches on the concepts of caring, sharing, love, giving, and devotion to Jesus Christ for a man who would appear by the world's standards to have a great life with a new girlfriend he plans to marry and spend a weekend with in Paris when his plans are interrupted and he is given a glimpse of what his life would be like had he stuck to his previous plan of following his career path of Seminary and marrying woman he knew years before. He has a dream or visiion and within it, an angel gives him a chance to experience what would have happened. The are several twists and turns and will keep you interested in how it turns out.
Background: The movie Time Changer has a setting in the 1800's at a Seminary where a group of professors meet on a regular basis as a committee. The professors are to review the writings of an upcoming work to be published that will have the Seminary name on it and the endorsement is needed. A unanimous decision by all is needed for a manuscript to be published which is to have the Seminary name on it. One of the professors opposes the manuscript and tries to confront the author as to why he is opposing it by showing him something at his home -- something he must come and see for himself. The movie uses time travel as a means to share a message that is both evangelistic and makes you think about Christian values, Church, and moral decay within society.
Production: The movie is filmed well and is engaging and intriguing as the concept of time exploration is used within the movie. Considering the budget that the team probably had to work with, they have done a very good job of conveying setting and environment for the film.
Message: This movie stays on track with a theme that is both evangelistic and really makes you think much about the concept of secular humanism that is rampant within our society today. It shows the contrast of life in the past to today in vivid living color. It is a movie you can watch again and again. It really is that good! Get this one on DVD from Five and Two Pictures. This is a Rich Christiano film.
