Faith. Pure and Simple
This presentation talks about the article by Adventist World titled Faith. Simple. and what the Adventist Media Center from Voice of Hope (Stimme der Hoffnung) of the Euro-Africa Division actually coproduced. They coproduced a public movie that contains curse words and vulgar words. 14 min. Posted August 30, 2012.Watch the full size HD YouTube version here and the HD Vimeo version here.
My Last Day Without You movie:
A Youtube clip that has the "Black Madoff" rap song with the curse words and vulgar words in it can be found here. Because the volume is very low, you have to listen very carefully. If you listen to the full volume version first, it will be obvious. We don't recommend listening at all unless you really need to verify it. The curse and vulgar words used in the movie occur in the song at about 1:34 and 1:42. Our leaders should be ashamed for coproducing such a movie. They must repent of this serious lack of spiritual discerment. To call for a Revival & Reformation without first publicly repenting of this specific sin is hypocrisy.
More information about the film can be found at this Adventist News Network link. Here's what they say:
"The Adventist Church in Germany and Austria last year held the Faith.Simple project, an eight-week outreach series to post-moderns, with Internet broadcast discussions centering around the movie My Last Day Without You, created specifically for the project. The film features a young German businessman who travels to New York City on a difficult assignment, which forces him to examine his own life. Klaus Popa, who co-led the series, said hundreds of discussion groups were held in homes and churches throughout German-speaking areas of Europe."

In the Pacific Union Conference, SONscreen Film Festival promoted this video. Maybe you should find out more about the Seventh-day Adventist Adventist SONscreen Film Festival , what they are doing, and the films they are promoting. Here's a Pacific Union website link to get you started. Start doing a little research and you may find out much more. The article says:
"Two ground-breaking projects sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist church were screened: “My Last Day Without You,” from Germany, and “The Record Keeper,” an updated take on The Great Controversy, from the United States."
"The Record Keeper By North Pacific Union Gleaner: Here’s something entirely new. Jason Satterlund, Adventist filmmaker based in Portland, Ore., has produced the pilot episode for "The Record Keeper." He describes it as a steam-punk web-series about the politics of angels as they observe the downfall of mankind. The main character, "Raina" writes down the events of history and interviews angels on both sides to get their version of events. Satterlund collaborated with Garrett Caldwell, General Conference assistant communication director, on the script. Watch the eight-minute pilot episode for yourself on YouTube. --GleanerNOW, July 26, 2012."
You may have noticed Jason Satterlund in connection with some of the Adventist Health videos too. What's interesting is the link to Garrett Caldwell at the General Conference. see https://www.facebook.com/TheRecordKeeper
"The religious life is not to be represented from the pulpit or in our papers as a romance. It pains my soul to see in the papers coming from our press, the most important truth placed before the people in the form of a romance. Let the articles in our papers at this time, when the eternal interests of souls are at stake, be of a character to arouse souls to a sense of their peril. At this time Bible truth is to make a solemn impression upon hearts. The genuine facts of truth are to be presented as they came from the lips of the greatest the world has ever known." 6 MR 287.2
"Novelty and romance do no honor to our publications. I am growing heartsick and weary over productions from the press that lower the truth as it should not be lowered. The fewer of these productions that are brought in, the more influence will the genuine, sacred truth connected with the scenes that are to take place, have upon minds.--Ms 17, 1910, pp. 1, 2. ("Regarding Representations in Our Papers," undated.)" 6 MR 287.3

This presentation was given in the Longmont, CO Vista SDA Fellowship church for the adult Sabbath School class. Since the audience response could not be recorded, that portion has been left out. Thus you will hear the speaker ask questions sometimes, but you will not hear the response or comments from the class. This presentation has been added because the topic of guilt may have been unclear/incomplete in the lesson and the presenter shared more about this topic as well as had a brief discussion near the end of the lesson about the wheat, the tares and the open sinner. 29 minutes.
