two bags of dope for the kingdom of God*

This is a challenging movie. I didn’t expect it to be, but there you go.
“Father of Lights” is the third is a series (I have not seen the first two) of movies by Darren Wilson and Wanderlust Productions. The theology here is totally sound, in my opinion, and these are my kind of people. They love people, love people, love people. That’s it – they touch and love and pray for others. It doesn’t matter if the people they encounter believe differently, look different, smell bad or might want to harm them. That’s what it’s all about in this life. That’s how we are supposed to live, there’s NO doubt.
I enjoyed this far more than I expected to, I really did. There are things in this film that made me want to cheer. The guys involved here don’t beat Jesus into people, they just love unconditionally and genuinely. They state, quite accurately, that religion is often doing more harm than good. It’s all about love—quiet, unassuming, authentic love. Just love. What an awesome example.

Wanderlust provided a DVD for my review. Opinions are 100 percent my own.
