Christian Movie? :: By Jim Towers

In spite of what you may believe, not all of us in the movie business are Godless swamp creatures. I for one am appalled at how far we have strayed from Christian norms in the entertainment business. There have always been good people in my industry. But, as in the social construct of our country, we have moved to the extreme craziness of the far left – demanding the obscene.

There was a time when people weren’t as literate as we are today. In those days, believe it or not, the theatre was about morality plays – thought-provoking plays that one could take home and ponder. This was the time of enlightenment of renaissance, of Da Vinci and Shakespeare, a time of the Protestant Reformation. This was a time following the dark ages, much like the times in which we live today.

I still have friends in the movie business; and truth be told, I would trust some of them more than I trust the brethren. As a matter of fact, the brethren have proven time and again – the hypocrites that they are. I could tell you horror stories about all denominations. But hey, they are only human, saved by God’s grace – and what a wonderful undeserving grace it is.

It is very rare to find a True believer these days; you’d have to search far and wide to find one.

In saying that, I’m talking about a person who doesn’t limit God to the theological dogma taught in seminary. We can actually have a vibrant relationship with our creator if we seek him in spirit and in truth and not limiting Him in any way, shape or form.

And the best part is that he will answer our questions and petitions speedily even if we have faith the size of a mustard seed. The Bible is our source of enlightenment about the things of God and of growing your faith. “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.”

Jesus was speaking truth when He said, “Narrow is the way that leads to life, and few there be that find it.” Now, that isn’t to say that He doesn’t save to the uttermost, but it means that there is a deep and abiding peace of mind given to those closest to Him. To people like us, there is nothing – no nothing – that God cannot do.

Living in the last days, God is pouring out His spirit on those closest to Him, and they are experiencing phenomena that surpasses all human understanding. Some of us are experiencing NDEs, that is, near- death experiences; others are beginning to have visions, and many more are experiencing outright unexplainable miracles.

Granted, we must carefully judge those who are experiencing such things and see if their fruit (the way they live their lives) belies or confirms the truth of their claims.

In the topsy-turvy and evil world we live in these days, where right is wrong and wrong is right, we must tread carefully – armed with the Word of God – (which is our guide) because many so-called teachers are trying to change scripture to say what it doesn’t. If what these charlatans say doesn’t jibe with Holy Scriptures – do yourselves a favor and run.

Only now, with time running out, we should bring the fight to the enemy. The enemies of God are foolish to believe they can win the war, much less the battle. “For God has not given us the Spirit of fear, but of Love, Power, and a Sound Mind!” They are the losers; in the end righteousness WILL prevail.

Many of you know about my work in Movies primarily as an actor and writer, but most of you don’t know that I’m about to embark on making an Evangelical Christian movie – one that doesn’t glorify football players, basketball heroes or hobbits. My movie will be one of sharing the unadulterated Word of God with the masses in a highly entertaining way, in a way that we all can identify with, in a way that will have them talking and thinking about the things that are said and done in the movie.

We are today in a very dark place akin to the dark ages (socially speaking), and it’s going to take a lot of work and imagination to awaken people to the dire consequences of their wrongdoing. “The wages of sin is death,” and we in America are in death throes even as we speak.

We all need to REPENT – Christians as well.

We in the Christian community have far too many armchair warriors, people who know God “but deny the power thereof.”

With all the talents dolled out to God’s people, you would think we could stem the tide of wickedness that has taken over the world; but as you well know, things are the other way around, and soon we may be just a footnote in world history.

As for those of you who sit idly by waiting for the rapture – hoping to be taken away from the evil that’s befallen us, think again. You may also be left behind with your theological doctorate in hand. We must all rise up and give voice to righteousness, sanity and Godliness. Don’t be caught by the rapture doing nothing about your faith or worse yet – flaunting your sinful way of life before the throne of God and claiming to be His.

As for me, I’m doing the best I can with the talents I’ve been given, and yet some of you look at me with distain, and hope that I fail. After all, I’ve always been an achiever, but some would rather be known for their “golden tongue.”

Today, more than ever before, we need men of action, men not afraid of the enemy no matter how intimidating they may be with their hot and putrid breath full of lies.

Jesus said, “I am coming in a day when you think not.” In other words, always be prepared for His coming lest He find you sleeping behind the wheel – as it were.
