End of the Spear

There is a new movie out today about Jim Elliot and the others who died in Ecuador in 1956. The true story is an amazing missionary account and should be read by all. I recommend Shadow of the Almighty by Elizabeth Elliot.

This new movie End of the Spear has sparked controversy because of the casting of a homosexual in one of the lead roles. Dr. Mohler of SBTS has a great article out on how we should react to this as Christians. The article has benefits beyond just the movie, as it hits at the heart of many needless “Christian Controversies,” while at the same time holding high the standards that God’s Word establishes for all men and women.
