Synopsis: For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God." 1 Corinthians 1:18 (NIV)
As teenagers, skateboarding legends Brian Sumner and Christian Hosoi helped shape a culture. They reached amazing heights and broke countless records in pursuit of innovation and greatness. They were stars. They were heroes. As they will tell you themselves, they were fools ó until they decided to lay their sins at the foot of the cross and never look back.
They traded in the destructive habits of boys to serve Christ as men, using their God-given talents to minister to Americaís youth in a way very few can. Armed with hardcore biblical teachings, stirring testimony, and authentic, street-level insight, Brian Sumner and Christian Hosoi speak in a language that canít be faked ó and work tirelessly to share a message that canít be ignored. Foolishness, from SkateBible, is a daily devotional. Itís a witness tool. Itís an exciting, artfully made skate video featuring some of the biggest names in professional skateboarding ó men now living as dedicated servants of the Lord.
Empower your kids to stand against the pressures they face at school. Give them what they need to be as fearless in their faith as they are at the skate park. Show them you recognize a truth they face every day: In todayís world, a righteous life is the greatest rebellion.
This is a powerful and compelling DVD which focuses on the difference Christ makes in the lives of several men. In addition the film features these same young Christian men skateboarding as Christian music plays and you will be amazed at the talent they display, making jumps and moves in the most unlikely places. This is a good DVD to show to a youth group.
Several men share their testimonies about what Christ saved them from, including one young man that mentions his former drug life which featured cocaine and getting high regularly. Yet by the "foolishness" of preaching, these men were saved. Several scriptural references are used including John 1:1-3, John 10:10, Acts 4:12 which mentions salvation by the name of Christ, and 1 Timothy 2:5.
This DVD clearly shows that, according to ll Corinthians 5:17, any man who is in Christ is a new creature. We are very happy to award this possibly life-changing DVD our Faith Friendly Seal for all ages and five Doves, and that's as high as we go! See this one soon.
