A very special opportunity and honor has come my way. I have been cast in the new motion picture, ONE CHURCH. This is a film produced and directed by my long time friend, Bill Rahn. This is a “True story that hasn’t happened….yet.” This is a very plausible story of how the government could easily take over the church in the United States. My role is that of Pastor Robert Young, a pastor of a small congregation that does not “drink the Kool-aid” so to speak. In last night’s filming, Pastor Young was confronted by a government official that was “most displeased” with the activities of his congregation. It was an extremely intimidating experience for Pastor Young, and to be honest, me.
I am reminded of my experience in North Korea. Sixty years ago, the church was basically obliterated in that small part of the world and we vividly see the result. Though I am confident that “the gates of hell will not prevail against the church,” I do believe that we in the U.S. are just beginning to experience the “suffering” that is yet to come against body of Christ, specifically for those of us believe in the inherent Word of God. As I look back over fifty years of ministry, our freedoms have greatly diminished, much in the veil of political correctness.
To me is a it is a scary film, yet I am grateful to be part of telling this powerful story.
The stars of ONE CHURCH are American hero and former POW, Jessica Lynch, Jason Fredrick, Tim Ross. The full cast and crew are truly amazing people with which to work and again, I am so honored and humbled to work with them.
We are filming during the month of September in Rock Hill, South Carolina. The release date is 2015. I invite you to visit the website, onechurchfilm.com and One Church Film on Face Book.
