    Very interesting – as a video producer (less and less is shot on film now) this looks to be right up my alley. I do struggle some times between my profession and Christianity – and how the two interact – especially since most of my colleagues do not share my views (but I guess that’s true for everyone). I am still just struggling with how they connect. If I can make it, I will sign up and get some insight/motivation!

    I’m not a big fan of apologetics (even though I know it has it’s place).

    I am a big fan of throwing the Word out there, and then letting God do the rest.

    They looked into his eyes, saw him raise the dead, and yet did not believe. The Holy Spirit creates faith, when and where it wills.

    Not saying that I have never argued for the faith; I have.

    I’ll definitely be doing this, and hopefully I can convince Pr. Shaltanis to do it with me! We’re trying to use cultural apologetics a lot more lately. I’m hoping to write a blog on guilt and human nature using the films Get Low, Inception, and The Road. Get Low in particular is a fantastic story to use when talking about man’s attempts to relieve himself of guilt. Thanks for the tip, Dr. Veith!

    This problem should now be fixed. Anyone who has trouble should contact me at director@athanatosministries.org and I’ll walk you through it.

    @Andrew: give Pastor Shaltanis my warm regards. I came across your website about a month ago. VERY nice introductory theme music, in my opinion. :)
