two cents

An Audience of One

This documentary and film both look fascinating.

It's brilliant because this is not an atypical story - it's an exaggeration of a commonplace attitude within the Church. How many churches, pastors, leaders, or Christian bosses have done this same thing with slightly less crazy visions? Persuaded people to act unjustly towards others for the sake of a dream that's "From God"?

I dont doubt that sometimes God does speak and ask people to do crazy things, but in particular the part about "not paying rent for 5 months" - that hurts others in the process of following God - so is it following God at all? I have a hard time saying yes.

I can't wait to see it.
