Film on Baptist History: Shubal Stearns & The Over-Mountain Men

This looks to be a very entertaining and helpful film on better understanding the history of Baptists in early America. I know one thing for certain: the guy in the trailer teaser below sounds to me alot like some young, arrogant, new calvinists ‘elder’  punks I’ve run across. Bless their hearts – I mean that.

Anyway, the film is produced by Shiloh Films who have also released other films of Baptist note like ‘As with Roses’.

This film is scheduled to be released 6-09-2012.

From Shiloh Films:

It is Time for the Truth to be Told! 

The world has told us their view of our history.   It is a view tainted and skewed with the slants of  Catholicism and Protestantism alike.  The true impact of the Baptist people in America and the world’s history has long been suppressed.

It is time to again teach our future generations the truth: truths such as where the spirit of liberty originated in the hearts of the American patriots, the desire for true religious freedom for all, the true separation of the church from the state government, the first amendment to our U.S. Constitution — all of these and more had their roots in the faith and doctrine of the Baptist people of this new land.

The influence of the Baptist in America has been hidden by direct and indirect rewriting of our nation’s history.  Shiloh Films is a unique ministry in that our desire is not only to teach true Baptist history, but to bring it to life through digital video media.  We have dedicated this ministry through much prayer and fasting, in the hope that the true stories we portray will stir your hearts as they have ours.
