‘Set Free Posse: Jesus Freaks, Biker Gang, or Christian Cult?’ ~
CFDb Movie Review
While thousands point to Set Free as the starting point of their salvation, others readily call it a “cult” that ultimately gave birth to a “biker gang” known as the Set Free Soldiers.
Founded in 1982 in Anaheim, California, the church quickly grew because of its unorthodox outreach style including rap, hip hop, low-riders, and a motorcycle club.
Follow the rise and fall of the ministry through never-before-seen archive footage and 50+ current-day interviews with its ever-controversial founder and many at the center of this worldwide movement.
I will admit, I was a bit hesitant – unsure what to expect when reading the title of this film, but this documentary is an amazing testimony to what it truly is to be a Christian – find Jesus and be like him!
“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children;” – (Ephesians 5:1-2)
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” – (Romans 12:2)
Just Wow – there are no other words for the incredible transformation of Phil Aguilar and his new found mission!
There are sensitive topics of drugs and crime discussed, for this I would caution parents. This documentary goes into detail on the how “Set Free Ministry” came to be, the history on the founders and various news clips questioning the “cult” aspect that was becoming a regular accusation of this growing ministry.
This documentary is an amazing testimony of what God can accomplish in us if we just accept Him and allow Him to move in us!
