End of the Spear

What a great movie. We saw this movie this weekend, and I really enjoyed it. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend renting it. I won't go into any detail about the movie, in case you haven't seen it, but I will say one thing. It amazes me how the Gospel can reach anyone in the world, if we are willing to take it to anywhere in the world. I thank all of the missionaries that give their lives to reaches people that live in jungles and people that live in dangerous areas. Although not all of us can travel to Ecuador and present to Gospel to different tribes, we can reach the people in our own backyard.

We haven't seen End of the Spear yet, we want to see it though. Is the gospel presented? I read through another blog that the gospel wasn't even presented. Hopefully it was (I mean in the movie, not real life)

Yes the Gospel was presented. But in words that the Waodoni people could understand. I can't remeber what they called God. But basically there is a part in the movie where the sister presents the Gospel to her brothers saying that

"God" had a son, and his son got speared and He didn't spear back.
He doesn't want us killing each other.

See these Waodoni people would spear each other for territory, women, and just to survive. All they had was hatred for each other.

Also they talk about crossing the "Great Boa", bascially going to heaven.

I do recommend watching the movie.
