VFTB 080: Ideas Have Consequences


IF MORALITY is the product of biology, why is murder wrong?  That’s the premise of the thought-provoking short film Cruel Logic by author, screenwriter and director Brian Godawa.

Brian, who wrote the scripts for the award winning film To End All Wars with Kiefer Sutherland and the forthcoming movie about the Scopes monkey trial Alleged, starring Brian Dennehy and Fred Thompson, discusses the use of story and imagination to communicate ideas, the consequences of those ideas, and how Christians can watch film and television with wisdom and discernment.

Please visit the VFTB Facebook page, and check out the great Christian podcasters at the Revelations Radio Network.

The consequences of ideas will be the focus of the First Annual Future Congress on Emerging Threats and Challenges July 22-24, 2011 in Branson, Missouri.  Sharon and Derek Gilbert will present workshops alongside featured speakers Chuck Missler, Noah Hutchings, David Hitt, Chris Pinto, Tom Horn, Dr. Future and Tom Bionic (Dr. Michael Bennett and Mike Tatar, Jr.), and others.  For information, see the Future Congress website.

5 Comments on VFTB 080: Ideas Have Consequences

  1. Awesome interview. Hadn’t heard of this writer (whose also a very good graphic artist, too) or his films. Fantastic!

  2. Great interview and really insightful on the Hollywood perspective and the importance of story telling. What Brian talks about will certainly make me watch movies from a slightly different view: seeing moral themes that I may not pick up on the first time around.

  3. It’s a good question, murder is in our blood, in our instinct to survive and protect ourselves, yet it is very very wrong

    So at what point does storytelling become “cunningly devised fables” (2 Pt. 1:16) or false prophecy and false teaching (2 Pt. 2:1) that “cunningly introduces fatal divisions” ?? (cp. balaam and jezebel Rev. 2:14 & 2:20)

    Case in point, the writings of “Old Dog” Bob Neumann. Is he a wolf in sheep’s clothing or a watchdog?
