Jesus Camp

Synopsis: Jesus Camp follows several young children as they prepare to attend a summer camp where the kids will get their daily dose of evangelical Christianity. Becky Fischer works at the camp, which is named Kids on Fire. Through interviews with Fischer, the children, and others, Jesus Camp illustrates the unswerving belief of the faithful. A housewife and homeschooling mother tells her son that creationism has all the answers. Footage from inside the camp shows young children weeping and wailing as they promise to stop their sinning. Child after child is driven to tears. Juxtapose these scenes with clips from a more moderate Christian radio host (who is appalled by such tactics), and Jesus Camp seems to pose a clear question: are these children being brainwashed?

What you want,

when you want it.

[When you want it]

KMBZ on demand.

From the voice of Kansas City,

news radio.

Sandra Day O'Connor,

the first woman ever deserved

on High Court has turned in

her letter of resignation

bring her to High

Court to an end.

Let's go to

the White House.

Good morning.

I directed my staff

to compile information

and recommend from my review,

potential nominees

who faithfully interpret the Constitution

and laws of our country.

I believe as Christian citizens

of this country

we should be actively involved...

... in this historical moment.

And if the churches

across this country

believers can come together

and take a stand

I think it's gonna have

a powerful, powerful impact

on this process.

We dare not sleep through

this poi???? decision

because frankly, futur generations

depend on us.

Pray urgently that

God's perfect will, will be done.

We are engaged today

in what they call:

culture war.

We did not start it

but, we, by his grace,

are going to end it?.

And we should say:


we want to reclaim America

for Christ "

Upon? this mean-spirited message,

us against them

and that's what the religious

right is doing

in the United States,

it is dividing this country.

- Well, we have Tyry

- Yes.

in Hillside, Illinois,

that he listens to on the WCPT.

What do you have in your mind?

I am Christian,

I am a Bible believing Christian.

Somehow, these guys

don't ji? with the Christianity

in what I have learned.

I mean, there is authoritarianism

kind of way about them and

there is nothing generous?,

nothing compassion

for me, there is nothing

Christian bottom line?, I mean

Yes. It is It is

It is upside down.

I mean Yes, I've been-I've been raised

as a Christian all my life

I think

that's probably the thing

that upset me most

about what's happening.

None of this

really makes any sense for me.

So there is some new brand

of religion outhere

It's somehow

the things have changed

since Matthew

uh, wrote uh

wrote about the Jesus's sermon

on the mount

where Jesus told us

to be peacemakers.

And right now they

Everything they do

they say, they do it

in name of God.

That we need to go

to war in name of God.

They are being told

George Bush, of all people?

he is the Holy man

who has been anointed

with the job of of

creating a Christian society

not just in America,

but all over the world.

You and I know

that's false.

This is a tanglement? of politics

with religion.

What what kind of lesson

is that for our children?

There has never been

a generation like this one.

The Earth is filled

with dead and dying

in spirit and body.

But now it is the time

to the glory of Lord

to come to the Earth

as the water covers the sea.

"Now is the time!"

We prophecied these dry bones,


"Now is the time!"

Speak the word of the Lord!

# The word of the Lord #

# The word of the Lord of Zion #

# The word of the Lord #

# The word of the Lord of Zion #

# The word of the Lord,

the word of the Lord of Zion #

# Prophecy #

[In the word of the Lord!]

# the name, a generation #

# the name, a generation #

# the name, a generation #

# Prophecy #

# We #

# Prophecy #

[He is coming!]

# The Lord #

# Arise #

[He will save the nation]

# The Lord will #

# Arise! #

Fabulous! Alright,

Thank you for coming!

That is great.


I have no idea how many people

are here today.

I told the auditorium hold

about 500

so we are doing pretty good,

are we?

Ok listen,

mums and dads.

I want to tell you about something

that we have in the bookstore.

We have School of Evangelism

and unfortunately,

this one doesn't sell quite as much

because people,

for whatever reason

I guess they think that

this is gonna be a door-knock key.

A manual, uh.

And it is not.

There is an hands?in the back

that teaches kids how to, eh

actually start a conversation

with their friends

and how to? the loss?.

Another thing that

I wanted to announce

is our camp

coming up in August.


And it just gonna be

an incredible time!

We've got brochures

on the camp

sitting on the bookstore.

You need to pick one up

and begin to pray


this year. Ok?

Boys and Girls! I need everybody seated

right this way.

Is there anyone here

that believes

that God can do anything?

God can do anything!

We can just say:
"God, fix the world!"

How do you know?

This is a pretty sick old world?

This is a sick old world.

, just fix it!

Somebody hit your tools

and let's just fix this old world!

Can't you God change things?

We got too many Christian ?

fat and lazy.

They don't want to give up

their evening meal

they don't want to

for 3 days

or 40 days or whatever.

Do you know Muslims,

train their children

from the time of 5 years-old

to during the month of Ramadan?


we hold the keys.

"We" can change the world.

Boys and girls can

change the world?



stand feet.


I need you to get serious,

serious with God.



I am here to be trained.

I am here to be trained

I am here for an education

I am here for an education

I am willing God.

I am willing God.

I will do what

you want me to do.

I will do what

you want me to do.

I'll say what you want me to say.

I'll say what you want me to say.

In Jesus name

In Jesus name



You don't open your mouth
