Father of Lights DVD (and giveaway!)

About the movie:

FATHER OF LIGHTS chronicles the journey of filmmaker Darren Wilson and his team as they fearlessly travel the globe, far from the daily existence of the typical evangelical believer in the West. By thoughtfully documenting the stories of extraordinary believers and candidly filming miracles, visions and other supernatural occurrences, Wilson engages viewers in modern day examples of the true nature and character of God.
Wilson gives honest access to his own spiritual questions as he tackles the religious misconceptions he has struggled with throughout his life.  “I went into making this film by asking the simple question: who is God? I wanted to know His character, His personality, and who He truly is. To answer this question, we had to peel back the many layers of religious garbage that has been passed onto him through generations. That He is angry. Vengeful. Wrathful. And in general, that He doesn’t like you very much. The truth, as you will see vibrantly in this film, is that He is the most loving, compassionate, and wonderful Father you can imagine.”
About Wanderlust Productions:
Wanderlust Productions is a video production company focusing on creating content for various media that highlights, informs, and is designed to spiritually stretch our audience.  Created by Darren Wilson, Professor at Judson University, Wanderlust’s focus is on telling stories that inspire and agitate, that are unwavering in their honesty yet are emotionally compelling.  While our content will always be Christian in nature, we are not afraid to explore themes, concepts, or areas that may be considered “risky” by the Christian establishment.  Wanderlust prides itself on its willingness to put the story above the message.  That being said, the message will never waver.
My Opinion:
I have to be honest I’m not sure how to begin reviewing this documentary.  Usually, I am very forthcoming with my opinion but well I just don’t know how to say what I want to say.  This was an awesome documentary, I enjoyed seeing some of these men and women who are giving up everything, yes, some have literally given up everything for Jesus.  I don’t want to give everything away in regards to this DVD, there are miracles – and if you don’t believe in modern healing watch this or ask me about my daughter!  Regardless, the Holy Spirit is very much alive and is working through those who love people.
At first I was thinking “oh here we go, we are supposed to love but not point out their sin” but that wasn’t it at all.  Now one man said that God isn’t angry, He is love – that is true but God also gets angry at sin and He hates sin in His children’s life.  However, even with that being said the movie was about letting the Holy Spirit work, if we love the people instead of immediately jumping on their sin then the Spirit will renew their minds and lead them away from their sin.  Many of us are quick to point out the sin before the person is even saved – but more often than not that back fires – Jesus says to love and when it comes to pointing out sin that is to happen between Believers not Believers and non-believers.
I would really recommend this DVD if you think or somehow believe that the Holy Spirit no longer heals or that miracles are dead or if you believe to have that belief strengthened.  A Maharishi giving his life to Christ, a Muslim man being healed, and many more miracles happen through out this powerful 98 minute documentary and when you watch it I’m sure you’ll figure out which story was the most powerful to me!

    I want to win because a lot can be “said” through movies. I could give this to family members.
