Movie Info

Filmmaker Dan Merchant explores the friction between faith and culture in America during a time when religious debate has flooded the media yet rhetoric has grown bitterly divisive in the lead-up to the 2008 presidential elections. By conducting man-on-the-street interviews, speaking with experts, and exploring the controversy of religion in humorous animated segments, Merchant examines how the country has been divided by the gospel of love. Dividing his time equally between speaking with such left-leaning media figures as Al Franken and "liberal evangelical" Tony Campolo and such notable conservatives as Michael Reagan, Jerry Falwell, and Pat Robertson, Merchant offers a well-rounded but unflinchingly critical study in the conflicts of faith in contemporary America. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovimore

Critic Reviews for Lord Save Us From Your Followers

All Critics (3)

An extraordinarily-insightful endeavor urging Evangelicals to examine their own morality in relation to Jesus' words instead of conveniently pointing fingers at folks they've long since dismissed as heathens.

Has perhaps the most apropos title of any movie you'll see this year.

Although it's somewhat messy in its organization and execution, Lord, Save Us From Your Followers is a great example of the modern essay film in action.

Audience Reviews for Lord Save Us From Your Followers

½

I know personally how I have been damaged by well meaning people using their religion as a weapon in the name of their church, faith and even God. It was refreshing to see a real Christian point to a solution. This movie helps restore some of the faith I have lost. Much more opportunity is available if more conservatives and (in general) Christians as a whole would watch this movie with an open-heart and open-mind.

Wow, this was a fantastic documentary. It's something every Christian (and non-Christian) should see. It gives a different perspective on the Christians of today, how they act, how they should act and how people see them. I think it's an eye opening movie and shows what it really means to have love for one another.

This movie really touched me, as lame as that sounds. I found myself walking away with a lot more hope for the ever widening rift in the world. Christians have given themselves a really bad name, and I totally agree that the ideas presented in this film would heal some wounds as we look inwards at our own shortcomings, start serving others and loving others, and stop trying to win the fight of 'i'm right and you're wrong, and I'm going to fight you until you believe that too'. Nobody wins in that situation.
