This is the story of a young filmmaker and his journey to discovering what is most important when it comes to Christian films.
Jared’s latest movie project is going well. Too well. He is ahead of his production schedule, and his talented cast and crew have him confident that he will win the online film contest he plans to submit it to. But what he is most excited about is the strong moral message of his film, one that will reach hundreds of online viewers should it win the contest.
Then, on the first day of production, Jared receives an unexpected letter, a letter that will radically alter the course of his project, his friendships, and his entire filmmaking philosophy for the rest of his life.
The theme of this project was born with an observation: so many Christian films today focus on good morals, but fail to point to Christ, the only true example and source of good morality. Too often Christians are simply portrayed as people of good character, rather than those who have been radically transformed by the Holy Spirit. As a result, the message of the film is dangerously close to one of self-righteousness, as the viewer can seek to bear fruit without knowing of the Vine, the only source of good fruit (John 15:4-5).
Our aim with this project is to suggest a higher goal; let’s use this powerful method of communication to preach the Gospel. Instead of heartwarming stories about kindness or forgiveness, let’s teach the world that it’s God’s kindness that leads us to repentance, and that the only source of true forgiveness is Jesus Christ. Our audiences, Christian or not, do not ultimately need to hear of good character qualities; they need to hear the Gospel, for “…it is the power of God for salvation…in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith…” (Romans 1:16-17).
As filmmakers, we are storytellers. As Christians, we have a precious story to share. Let’s make the connection.
