“The Reliant,” a conservative Christian movie challenging Christians and non-Christians on guns, violence, forgiveness and salvation


“The Reliant,” a conservative Christian movie challenging Christians and non-Christians on guns, violence, forgiveness and salvation

By Julio Severo
Economic collapse causes widespread rioting and social unrest, leaving a lovesick 19-year-old girl struggling to care for her siblings in a stretch of woods bordered by lawless anarchy, wondering why a good God would let this happen. This is the environment of “The Reliant,” a conservative Christian movie challenging Christians and non-Christians on guns, violence, forgiveness and salvation.
When my wife and I watched the preview of “The Reliant,” by courtesy of its producer, Patrick Johnston, we expected everything from this Christian movie, except guns and violence.
Yet, the abundance of guns and violence in the movie has in no way overshadowed conservative Christian principles, especially forgiveness and salvation.
“The Reliant” portrays a world in collapse where guns are tools of violence in the hands of people of violence and where guns have a mixed reception among Christians, with some refusing having anything to do with them, with some using them in a wrong way and with others understanding that they have usefulness and importance in a decayed world.
“The Reliant” is a Christian action movie with a powerful conservative and evangelistic message impacting how unbelievers use guns without Christ and how Christians apply the lordship of Christ when using or not using guns. It was written and produced by the pro-family, pro-life, family practice physician and author Dr. Patrick Johnston.
“The Reliant” will be in over 750 theaters across the United States on October 24, and will be available on DVD and VOD on December 3. Its stars include Kevin Sorbo, Brian Bosworth, Nicole C. Mullen and the Benham Brothers. It has received 13 First Place awards at secular and faith-based festivals.
The film has received negative coverage from the left-wing press because of its defense of the right to keep and bear arms guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution — which makes the film very timely considering that socialists defend gun control. Kevin Sorbo, a famous Hollywood star, is an outspoken conservative, anti-socialist evangelical Christian.
Socialists always seek to disarm innocent populations while keeping all the guns in the hands of a cruel socialist elite. The result is that an armed elite can do whatever it wants to, including killing, an unarmed population.
Any government taking the God-given rights we have to defend ourselves, our families and our properties is a government usurping rights God has never given to it. “The Reliant” serves as an undeniable warning that the gun control politics of socialism are a threat to Christians and non-Christians, that people without Christ can do great violence with or without guns and that Christians should understand that guns are necessary tools for defense, not violence.
“The Reliant” leads you to several challenging questions:
* What do you do when armed violence hits all society and you are an anti-gun Christian?
* What do you do when armed violence hits your family and you are a Christian? Do you answer with unarmed or armed defense?
* What do you do when armed non-Christian people kill your family? Do you answer with vengeance or forgiveness?
* What happens if a murderer repents and accepts Jesus Christ as his Savior? Is there hope for him?
“The Reliant” answers these and many other hard questions.
So are you going to lose the opportunity to see such questions answered in “The Reliant”?
