Documentary – Binding Faith

I just finished watching a documentary that was very good. It was called Binding Faith by Dondra Vaughn Maynor. The following is from the 2009 SAICFF:

“The “Best Biblical Family” Award went to Binding Faith, a documentary that chronicles the persecution that Christian missionary and minister, Dr. Ajai Lall, encountered when he sought to share his faith in northern India. Upon his arrival in Rajpura, Punjab, he is met with violent opposition from local religious extremists. Fearing a pending riot, the police chief forbids Ajai from preaching in the city. Not willing to be deterred, the ruling is challenged. The only way Ajai will be allowed to preach is if he first signs a contract stating if there is any disturbance among the crowd, the police will have the right to shoot him at sight. An inspiring and insightful look into life for our Christian brethren in India.”

The movie was shot on location in India and relates a story that lets us see that we in the US have it easy when it comes to sharing the gospel. The truth is I was convicted by the boldness of Dr. Lall in the midst of the trials he faced. I would encourage you to watch this video and realize that this is not just about the missionaries but also about the struggles and persecution those that come to know Christ must face to be obedient to share their faith.

You can purchase this video from Vision Forum: Binding Faith

Also here is a link to the ministry started in 1982 by Dr. Lall: Central India Christian Mission
