Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

"Useless" Movie

The following film was written and directed by Brandon Adams, who is a fellow member of the Reformed Baptist Discussion List. This film was the winner of the 2011 168 Project. (The 168 Project is 'an annual speed film-making competition based on a Bible verse. Teams draw from a pre-selected pile of verses and then have 10 days to write a short film based on that verse, and then 7 days to shoot and edit the film.')

The Bible passage providing the inspiration for "Useless" is Philemon 1:10-11.

This film is a truly impressive work of art and a highly effective illustration of biblical truth. (Also, the acting is very good; the man playing the former law enforcement agent is especially remarkable.)

WARNING: this film should be considered "PG-13" material; the plot involves a murder, and the depiction of this murder is rather grisly.
