No movie captured my heart and engaged my emotions like the movie, Passion of the Christ. But now I am pleased to review a movie that not only blew my mind, but liquefied the emotions of my heart into tears running down my face as I watched Furious Love. Tears the like of which I haven’t cried since I saw Passion so many years ago. It is fitting, I think, because where the Passion left off (with the resurrection of Christ), Furious Love documents how Christ’s great passion, His mighty love, is continuing to change and save lives today.

Furious Love records Christianity where few believers dare to go. It documents Christians taking the light of God into the most darkest and horrifying places. The stories will astound you and the testimonies will humble you. If you ever heard a song or statement that has the words “Lord, break my heart for the things that break Your heart,” and you prayed that as a prayer, God will answer as you watch this movie.

The documentaries in this movie will take you across the world and into the lives of people delivered from demonic power as well as souls walking the streets and selling their bodies for money they desperately need. Furious Love will take you into the eye-opening story of a young woman delivered from a disturbing cult where she was raised to be (literally) a bride of Satan. Then the movie continues with an amazing account of a few Christians who enter a large gathering of witches and warlocks looking for a “fight” and leave with a powerful lesson about God’s grace, mercy, and incredible love.

Love. How far can it extend? How deep can it reach? The movie begins with this question, and concludes with a most sobering answer.


The purpose of Christianity is not to avoid difficulty, but to produce a character adequate to meet it when it comes. It does not make life easy; rather it tries to make us great enough for life. — James L. Christensen

You read the Word? How lovely. You pray? Three times a day? Really? Oh, wow. You even fasted twice last week. Impressive.

Hmm. I am highly impressed with your ability to skim words, mutter memorized phrases, and starve yourself. What did you say your name was, again? Danielle? Oh, my. And here I was thinking it was Gossiper. My mistake.

What was that? I’m being judgmental? Why do you say that?

Well, of course your Sunday attendance is extraordinary. I was simple stating that–

Yes. Yes. I know. But in the end, what does it matter how many times you go to church if you ignore every homeless man you come across?

Please, calm down. I was only pointing out that God requires more of us than Sunday worship and paying our dues through prayer and the occasional bible scripture.

I was not questioning your salvation, my sister. What? Don’t you think you’re getting a little upset? Hey! Watch the name calling! Highly unnecessary.

Look, I think this conversation is over. Clearly I have made my point.

What point? How can you ask what point? It is clear. Christianity is a life-style, not just outward motions designed to make us look good. We’re supposed to be beautiful examples of Christ inside and out.

Look here! I am not questioning your salvation, okay? I’m sure you are very beautiful. Yes, I assure you that I do have a relationship with God and–

No, I’m not questioning your relationship at all. I’m just making a point!

Why are you so blasted sensitive? Thank God I’m not like you. I actually walk this thing out, thank you very much.

What’s that?

How dare you accuse me of hypocrisy! You had better be careful who you’re talking to! I am the anointed of the most High God, and His word says not to touch His anointed. That means you better watch how you talk to me, young lady. Wouldn’t want the Lord smitin’ you with a curse…

You know what? I’m just going to pray for you. Really, really hard.
