Movie: Polycarp – Destroyer of Gods

polycarpFew people know the story of what happened to the early church after the end of the book of Acts almost 2,000 years ago. This film is based on the true historical account of the life of Polycarp, one of the early church fathers who was a disciple of the Apostle John. It’s an intriguing story of how, even in the face of intense persecution, the early church stood firm for Christ and the gospel.

Anna, a young slave girl, is rescued and adopted by Christians in 2nd Century Smyrna, and befriended by their aged Pastor, Polycarp. As Anna is taught by Polycarp and her new family, she struggles to reconcile her beliefs with those of the Christians. When the Roman proconsul demands that all citizens worship Caesar to show their allegiance to Rome, Polycarp and the Christians must find courage to stand for their faith against the growing threat of persecution. Anna is forced to come to grips with the truth and choose whom she is willing to live—and die—for.

It challenges Christians of all generations to stand boldly on the gospel in the face of persecution. In the Western world our faith is increasingly coming under attack from our secularized society, so this movie is very timely for us today.

Book: Spiritual Warfare (Fighting the Good Fight of Faith) by Brian Brodersen

SpiritualWarfareMany years ago, A. W. Tozer posed the question:

“THE WORLD: PLAYGROUND OR BATTLEGROUND?”

The Scriptures affirm the latter to be the case. All around us a battle rages, yet quite often we are oblivious to it. It is vital that every Christian understands the reality of spiritual warfare and knows how to effectively fight the good fight of faith.

In this book, Pastor Brian Brodersen brings biblical balance and practical insight to the subject of spiritual warfare.

Spiritual Warfare was written to heighten the Christian’s awareness of this spiritual battle and its reality in our daily lives. It was also written with the hope of bringing a biblical balance to a vitally important, but often misunderstood subject. My prayer is that God will use the truths herein to enlighten and strengthen His people in the fight of faith.
