About Father of Lights

FATHER OF LIGHTS chronicles the journey of filmmaker Darren Wilson and his team as they fearlessly travel the globe, far from the daily existence of the typical evangelical believer in the West. By thoughtfully documenting the stories of extraordinary believers and candidly filming miracles, visions and other supernatural occurrences, Wilson engages viewers in modern day examples of the true nature and character of God.

Wilson gives honest access to his own spiritual questions as he tackles the religious misconceptions he has struggled with throughout his life. “I went into making this film by asking the simple question: who is God? I wanted to know His character, His personality, and who He truly is. To answer this question, we had to peel back the many layers of religious garbage that has been passed onto him through generations. That He is angry. Vengeful. Wrathful. And in general, that He doesn’t like you very much. The truth, as you will see vibrantly in this film, is that He is the most loving, compassionate, and wonderful Father you can imagine.”

My Thoughts

The documentary is suited for adults who are skeptical about God’s true character. Often times, God has been portrayed as one who is cold and distant but this film is made to show and reveal that He is actually a God of love and that He cares. I am a believer in Christ and watching this movie reminded me how dynamic our God can be. We must not put Him in a box and anticipate how He would move, instead we should continue in our relationship with Him so that we are in tune with how He is working in our lives.

I found the documentary a bit too talky and boring. It didn’t spark much interest in me. It probably wasn’t what I had expected it to be.  But this is just my personal opinion, I still recommend you watch the movie yourself.
