Rich Mullins on Christian Film
Man, I miss Rich Mullins.
His comments here are perfect when applied to film.
If Christian filmmakers grasp this and start making films that are true and beautiful we can move forward as an industry.
Leave the theology, evangelism and Bible teaching where it belongs—the local church. Your pastor knows far more about it than most filmmakers.
Mobilizing local churches to do evangelism does a lot more than any one Christian film can do. It’s every Christian’s job to speak for Christ. Not just your pastor’s, and not just a filmmaker’s. You cannot pass the buck to them to do what you are commanded to do in Scripture.
If you get what we’re saying and want to create beautiful film, get on our creator email list and reach out. We want to hear about your dream project—the one that no one else has the chutzpah to fund or stream.
