Persecuted

Synopsis: Nationally acclaimed evangelist John Luther is the last obstacle in the way of sweeping religious reform in the States. When a U.S. Senator and Luther's own supporters abduct and frame him in the murder of an innocent teenage girl, an unprecedented era of persecution is unleashed. Out on personal recognizance, Luther escapes police surveillance in search of the truth. And suddenly a once-normal life is targeted by a team of ex-military operatives who wage a relentless campaign to eliminate the incriminating evidence. As evangelist turned fugitive, Luther vows to expose anyone involved with, or profiting from, the girl's murder. It's a mission that brings him face-to-face with the coming storm of persecution that will threaten the entire American Christian community.

to be on the right side of history.

I cannot water down the gospel to

advance anybody's political agenda.

Not everybody believes that heaven

is a gated community, John.

Sir, it's time.

I think I can speak for all of my

colleagues in Congress when I say,

"We have reached the terminal

end of our patience with you."

God bless.

You are going to kill this thing,

like you always do.

- You're on fire!

- All right.

How are you feeling? Good? Do you need

anything? You know what I'm thinking?

I'm going to get you a

driver to take you home.

- You've got to take it easy, John.

- That's all right, I'll drive myself.

Listen, listen, man. This media

scrutiny comes and goes, you know that.

All this talk of persecution, it's going to

die and who's going to be left standing?

You are. Why?

'Cause you're John Luther.

So forget the politics.

You get back in that ring and you bring

those people what they came to hear.

You bring the truth, brother.

Go get 'em!

...simple word of the gospel

for many, many years.

So please do me a great favor

and let's give a really warm

welcome to John Luther.

Tonight...

I believe that we are

headed, as a nation,

towards a great spiritual awakening.

And yet, many are telling you

that if the government

can unite all faiths

under this new religious reform bill,

that somehow world peace will come.

The Bible tells that no

government can ever be true to...

He's not on board.

Go ahead.

Why?

Because mankind has a disease.

It's either the world

and its religions

and its politicians and its pleasures

or it's the Lord.

Every human being that ever lived

has had to make the same choice.

- Get in.

- Many believe that religious reform

will save us from war,

save us from fear and terrorism.

When did it?
