I got the ultimate compliment today to The Real Jesus video. I am always questioning how good the production is, even though I am pleased the content.
In response to:
jobaby51 has commented on your video: “The Real Jesus: Myth #2 (4 of 10).”
I have seen fundamentalist Christian camps supporting Intelligent Design, biblical inerrancy etc. use similar slick high production computer graphics and new-age background music in an attempt to add credibility to their perspective, but I can’t help but notice that an atheistic view on this topic is never presented as such, nor do I ever expect them to do so, as their arguments really aren’t in need of these embellishments. Their arguments speak for themselves.
I wrote to this person that the atheist position (without embellishments?!) is strong enough to win about 1 to 3 percent of the population.
It’s an ironic statement because I produced the video in response to the programs on the Discovery Channel, ABC, A&E, National Geographic, and many others, that purport to draw in a religious audience with biblically themed programs, only to disappoint us by trotting out the “theologians” of the Jesus Seminar and other liberal viewpoints.
I thought that if I could respond with something approaching their production quality that I could contribute to the voice of Christian apologetics.
I have never expected the as-yet-unreleased DVD to be a best seller, but the YouTube phenomenon has already garnered The Real Jesus video (watch parts 1-10) approximately 18,000 viewers. While it doesn’t come close to some of the videos on YouTube — the ones that defy all common sesnse by drawing tens of millions of viewers — it is still a good audience and I am getting many comments daily. I’ve had hundreds of comments so far. A response to these criticisms from skeptics is forming the basis for the next project.
More on that later.
The greatest irony is that when a skeptic wants to insult my low budget effort, he does it by calling it “slick high production.”
And to think it’s all done on an $1800 iMac with used Final Cut Studio software I bought on EBay.
Now that I am within a couple days worth of work of finishing up part 10 this makes me feel better.

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!
Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.
Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981
Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House.
The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.
“…a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine
