To say I’m extremely excited about the message in this documentary is an understatement. I thought it was phenomenal.
For a couple reasons… For one, the historical content was fantastic. The whole explanation of the “National Monument to the Forefathers” (or Pilgrim Monument) given by Dr. Marshall Foster revealed the biblical significance of each little detail in chilling explanation. (The Pilgrims engraved such things as Freedom, Tyranny Overthrown, Peace, Morality, Prophet, Evangelist, Law, Justice, Mercy, Education and Faith-the foundation of it all- with a sculpted figure to represent each one. Foster interpreted how each one related to their quest for a free society ruled by God. Amazing!)
A perfect picture of what a small group of people can do when they trust the Lord and persevere.
Two, (and why I’m jacked about this film for any other reason,) is the biblical worldview and underlying theology that Kirk expresses throughout.
The worldview conveyed in this film is highly optimistic to say the least. Say goodbye to the “get me outta here gospel of retreat” for sure. Say goodbye to “God’s law isn’t relevant for society anymore”. Say goodbye to the misunderstanding of “separation of church and state”. Whew…tough but important topics and misconceptions that have attributed greatly (in my opinion) to America’s moral, spiritual, and financial downfall over the years. (“But who cares about the world anyway, right? It’s a sinking ship.” Not in this documentary.)
I thank the Lord for Kirk’s boldness in sharing the ever so unpopular message of Christ ruling over all of life; family, civil, and personal (and everything in between), where His law is the ultimate standard and nothing else.
With all that said…I highly recommend that you make the time to see this film this weekend and support this work:
If America (and the world for that matter) can grasp the Kingship of Christ in the way that Kirk presented in this film, I believe God will do what He did through all of history when His remnant of people were faithful – give major victory against all odds and adversaries.
