Guest Bio:

As a writer, director and producer John Grooters has won numerous awards for his faith based films and videos across the globe.  As the owner of Grooters Productions and Ferocious Films, some of his more recent work includes Tortured for Christ, the Noah Interview, the Frontier Boys, and several upcoming films that share the story of real American heroes while staying true to America’s Judeo-Christian roots.  

Key Points:

  • If you stand for what’s right according to God’s Word you are going to get persecuted in some way.  It may not come in the form of physical torture but it may be in the form of judgment, losing a business deal, a job, or even a friendship.
  • There are two types of Christians, those who sincerely love God and those who just as sincerely say they love God.  Original quote from Italian Preacher and Martyr, Girolamo Savonarola.  
  • God does not call us to be politically correct.  God calls us to be true to His Word.
  • Just like King David, when the chips are down in your life seek the Lord.
  • “Many men that came to room 4 were atheist, but not one of them died an atheist.”  Richard Wurmbrand in Tortured for Christ
  • Sometimes what you think is a bust in society’s eyes is actually a victory in the eyes of God.
