Father of Lights is Darren Wilson’s final film in the Finger of God/Furious Love trilogy. Darrell describes it as:
“…big, epic, and above all, challenging. If I were to have to explain what it is about in a nutshell, I would put it like this: if Finger of God is about God’s power, and Furious Love is about God’s love, then Father of Lights is about God’s heart. I went into making this film by asking the simple question: who is God? I wanted to know His character, His personality, and who He truly is. To answer this question, we had to peel back the many layers of religious garbage that has been passed onto him through generations. That He is angry. Vengeful. Wrathful. And in general, that He doesn’t like you very much. The truth, as you will see vibrantly in this film, is that He is the most loving, compassionate, and wonderful Father you can imagine.
Along the way we will look at a number of things. Aside from dealing with some of the misconceptions surrounding the Father, we’ll journey through the nature of grace, take on the religious spirit, and see some of the most amazing God encounters ever put on film. You’ll meet people who love more extravagantly than you thought possible, will watch God deal with witch doctors and gang leaders and Hindu holy men, and you’ll see and ending that…well…let’s just say you’ll need to see it to truly believe it.
…..it’s going to make some people very uncomfortable. Especially religious people.
This will be a monumental call to the church to stand up and finally do what we have been called to do around the world. If we aren’t going to love the world around us, then we might as well pack it all up and go home. If we don’t love, and if we don’t bring freedom with us, then we are simply another religion, lumped in with the rest of them. But first, of course, we need to understand who we truly are and what we have at our disposal.
The truth is, the light of the world resides within us. And we have but one Father.”
I managed to get a preview of the film and was simply bowled over by the love and grace of the evangelists that were filmed. These were people who truly demonstrated Jesus as he would have been on earth and revealed the abundant love of our Father in heaven. My 13-year-old son joined me and was also fascinated by it. This film will be a key milestone in transforming the church and our approach to the lost and hurting around us.
