Humanity’s greatest desire, a greater desire than wealth, fame, true love or sexual gratification, is IMMORTALITY.
From the ancient epic of Gilgamesh to Ponce De Leon’s obsessive search for the fountain of youth to our modern-day compulsion to remain youthful-looking as long as possible, humanity is obsessed with the idea of immortality, the idea of living forever. Yet most refuse to turn to God for this gift. Yet this immortality is exactly what the gospel offers.
Paul in 2 Timothy 1:10: “but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel…”
Paul again in Romans 2:7 “(Jesus) will render to each one according to his deeds: eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honour, and immortality…”
Jesus in John 6:51: “I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”
THE RELIANT is an exciting adventure movie about the five children of survivalist Christian parents in Ohio separated from their mother and father when the social order collapses. The children hide in the woods from a man who is out for revenge against their father is a doctor who failed to save the man’s injured daughter at the hospital where the father works. As the days pass, the elder brother begins to doubt they can hide in the woods forever. He also begins to doubt the family’s strong Christian faith.
Worldview: Very strong Christian, biblical, moral, evangelistic, and patriotic worldview, with many Scripture quotes, conversations about God, references to Jesus and the Gospel, two people lose their Christian faith but regain it and are baptised, prayers, hymn singing, four Christians witness to sceptics and nonbelievers, and a very strong defence of American liberty/freedom, especially the right to bear arms.

Violence: Strong, light and sometimes intense violence includes several gunfights, man saves another man’s life by waving a gun at his attackers, man shot with an arrow, it’s implied that a deer is killed with an arrow so that its meat can feed a couple young adults and their younger sisters and brother who are on the run and hiding in the wilderness from bad guys, bad guys try to break into a car being driven away by a young adult trying to protect his three sisters and brother, people wounded or killed with guns and rifles, riots depicted, some fighting, deputies subdue a criminal, and an implied gun accident occurs off screen

Since the premiere in Holland, a little more than a month ago, there have been over 1000 screenings all over the world and the response has been amazing. People really loved the movie and after watching the movie many people experienced healing, deliverance, repented, got baptised in water and received the Holy Spirit.
