To Save A Life

Can a movie change the world? No, but it can move the people who will.

To Save A Life is more than a movie. It’s the difference people can make when they use their influence and time for others — whether in their family, neighborhood, campus, community or world. To Save A Life dares — no, inspires — people to care.

To Save A Life is an indie movie about the real-life challenges of teens and the choices they face.

Ever since Jake Taylor was a kid, he was the type of guy you couldn’t help but like. For Jake, life is good. He has a ton of friends, a basketball scholarship, a hot girlfriend and a really bright future. Not much to get down about, right?

Enter Roger Dawson. He was Jake’s childhood best friend before Jake’s growing popularity pushed him out. Tired of not fitting in and having a place to belong, Roger walks onto campus and, with a gun in his pocket and pain in his heart, makes a tragic move.

Jake is devastated by what Roger has done, and something in him changes. In seeking answers in his own life, one question plagues him the most: Could I have saved him? He finds himself deeply compelled to reach out to kids on the fringe – kids who aren’t viewed as cool enough. But this decision among other things, threatens Jake’s world. He may lose his friends, his scholarship and even his reputation by asking “What do I want my life to be about?”

Did You Know?

It is do amazing how fast our world is advancing in technology!

Did You Know 3.0 – 2008:

Did You Know 4.0 – 2009:

In a world that is advancing so quickly, it is hard to tell what we should/should not believe.  But one thing that we can be sure of is that God is on His throne!  God is not just some distant/non-existent being; He is very real, and He is as close as you let Him be.  If you want Him to be some distant God that does not aid your day-to-day life, then just walk away from Him.  But, if you want Him to be you very help in time of need, your source of strength, your healer, your deliver, your friend, … your everything … just come unto Him.  It is YOUR choice.  For Jesus said, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. [Matthew 11:28]”

As our world quickly advances, the time for Jesus’ return draws nearer.  Jesus told us in Revelation 22:12-13, “Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”  Christ is coming to gather those that have surrenderd their lives to Him.  He will give unto those the gift of eternal life and a new home on high in Heaven.  O’ Lord how I want to be in that number!  Those that believe in Christ Jesus will be rewarded for the works they have done.

Jesus is the only way into Heaven; there is no other way.  “I [Jesus] am the way, the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me. [John 14:6]”

Does God Exist?

This is a video full of truth.  The captions move a little fast; I have placed the transcript below.

Professor: I’ll prove to you if God exists, then he is evil.  Did God create everything that exists?  If God created everything, then he created the evil which means God is evil.

Student: Excuse me, professor!  Does cold exist?

Professor: What kind of question is this?  Of course it exists.  Have you never been cold?

Student: If fact sir, cold does not exist.  According to the laws of physics, what we consider cold is in reality the absence of heat.  Professor, does darkness exist?

Professor: Of course it does.

Student: You are wrong sir, darkness does not exist either.  Darkness is in reality the absence of light.  Light we can study, but not darkness.  Evil does not exist.  It is just like darkness and cold, God did not creat evil.  Evil is the result of what happens when man does not have God’s love present in his heart.

Collide Video

I spent most of my day yesterday working on the mission trip video that will be presented in church on Sunday. I had like 500-600 pictures to go through. My goal was to keep the video under 10 minutes for time sake (for both time limit at church and time limit to upload on YouTube). I had to borrow down my picture selection to around 145 or so. That would allow me to display the photos for 4sec and also have time to put other pictures, video, and effects on the begging and end of the presentation. I am not sure how many hours I spent on editing pictures and video. [view video HERE]

When I got ready to burn the DVD, my DVD burner decides that it is not gonna work for me. I have had it for many years now, and in the past year or so it has been acting up. It will make really loud grinding noises may or may not read/write the data to/from the disk. So, I finally broke down and ordered me a new internal LG DVD burner from NewEgg that I am going to put in an external enclosure. I cannot wait to finally have a drive that will operate correctly again!
