  • 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.

    October 2, 2009 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • While it might be tempting to assume that Merchant would come down hard on the non-Christians, the opposite actually happens.

    September 14, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4.0 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    February 28, 2010 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • Has perhaps the most apropos title of any movie you'll see this year.

Audience Reviews for Lord, Save Us From Your Followers

  • Aug 14, 2010
    Like one of my favorite documentaries "Religulous", this film explores religion in America. Although I love the aforementioned film, it is one-sided (albeit my side), so this was a more impartial take on the topic. I also enjoyed the filmmakers bumper sticker suit...

    A thought-provoking documentary that explores the damage that has been done by the Church to a hurting world. This viewer could not watch this without being reminded of Anne Rice's recent renunciation of Christianity. If one needed an explanation of why someone might be led to declare oneself to be a follower of Jesus who is no longer a Christian, this film supplies ample ammunition. The film includes interviews with theologians on the forefront of religious thought on tolerance and with ordinary people whom the Church has marginalized. The narrator also recreates an experiment originally related in the Donald Miller book, "Blue Like Jazz", and gets some really poignant footage of the healing power of seeking forgiveness from those who have been wounded by our intolerance. The film does a pretty good job of pointing out where the Church has failed, but is a little short of offering insight into how to heal the divisions that tear us apart. The film is then a good starting point for opening a dialog to find ways to fulfill the mission to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.

    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.
