FILMMAKER CHRIS PINTO DISCUSSES HIS LATEST PRODUCTION RECOUNTING THE HISTORIC AND CURRENT STRUGGLE TO PRESERVE GOD'S WORD AND ITS TEACHINGS, ON THE 23 - 27 NOVEMBER 09 “FUTURE QUAKE” RADIO PROGRAMS
Nashville, TN – Fabled Christian documentary filmmaker Chris Pinto (www.adullamfilms.com) unveils the subject matter of his latest production now available on DVD, “A Lamp In The Dark”, recounting the events and issues of the deadly struggle through the ages to preserve, practice and proclaim the whole content and message in the Bible, with host “Doctor Future” and co-host Tom Bionic, airing daily during the week of 23 November on the “Future Quake” program, broadcast on the Christian talk radio station WENO, 760 AM in Nashville, TN (and archived at http://www.futurequake.com). Though the years, Pinto has distinguished himself as a unique cinematic auteur within the Christian-influenced artistic community, having also garnered numerous secular industry awards. In this his latest effort, Pinto begins his story by exploring the critical turning point early in the history of the Church, when Constantine the Great “legalized” Christianity, and crowned himself both both head of the Church and the State, as “Pontifex Maximus”. This merging of an emerging centralized ecclesiastical structure with the coercive power of the State is shown to form the foundation of the accelerating Church corruption over time via centralized power and authority, and the danger to those in the minority whose faith, and most importantly their desire to derive their faith from their own knowledge of the Bible record, put them at odds with “approved” dogma. He then weaves his way through the little-known historical record of dissident communities (with respect to “official” Roman Catholic teaching) throughout the majority of the Church Age, and debunks many myths about their religious orthodoxy, while emphasizing the evidence of God's preservation of a people who lived by and studied the Word, as well as His preservation of the Biblical records themselves. In addition to his trademark dramatic reenactment vignettes of some of the clashes that produced the bloodshed and terror experienced by our Christian forefathers, he advances the narrative, and the issues raised during these times, through the days of the Reformers, the rise of the Counter-Reformation and the Jesuits, up to recent era efforts to translate the ancient Biblical records into modern languages and vernacular, and the motives of those placed today to accomplish these tasks. He also addresses a number of perplexing issues and aspects of this struggle over access to God's written revelation over the ages, such as the true historical legacy and lifestyle of early believers who retained a personal relationship to God's Word, the end-times views of the Reformers, the role of the Jesuits in the battle over Biblical texts, and many other provocative topics, which are also explored in this deep and thought-provoking discussion.
