Downside Up Short Films

Visit our films HERE.

Scripture says fear is the beginning of wisdom, but Love is the end. Can you imagine a life entirely fueled by love and not by fear and threats?

It feels like someone or something is trying to turn the greatest love story (the Gospel) into a threat—trying to turn the romance of God into a tragedy.

Maybe we need to take a closer look at Scripture. Maybe what looks like a threat is really the romance of God. Maybe we’ve got this whole thing upside down and maybe God turns every downside up. 

Below, you will find links to several websites that we have found to be very helpful. We realize that many are waking to the wonders of God’s Relentless Love and doing so from many different vantage points. We find all of these perspectives to be a blessing, but do not necessarily endorse everything on any given site. We just hope to expand the field of your vision.

We are especially happy to introduce you to BibleHub.com and any other resource that helps you dig into the original languages of Scripture. If one merely researches the original words translated into the English word “Hell,” for instance, and sees how those words appear in other places in Scripture, one becomes immediately aware that we have taken great liberties with our translations.
