Today on the podcast we have special guest Jens Jacob joining Dr. Kim as they talk about the brand new film “The Heart of Man.” This new film will be shown in theaters nationwide for one day only, this Thursday, Sept 14th 2017!

 

The Heart of Man is a story inviting the sons and daughters of God to leave behind our broken, moralistic and religious way of thinking and relating to God and to others. Once we begin to know who God is (and as a result who we are), we have something to invite the world into. Freedom from performance. Freedom from managing our behavior so we appear acceptable to God. Freedom from our addictions, compulsive behaviors, secrecy and double lives. This film tears the veil of confusion over the church's current identity crisis and enables it to invite the rest of the world to the banquet God is throwing all of us.

 

Jens Jacob is a Director and Producer and produced The Heart of Man.
