    It should be obvious. But children should not be burdened with the tragic abortions in this country. they should not be indoctrinated in the tongues movement. It is abusive. To see them in tears breaks my heart.

    Jesus camp is more about pentecostalism than about Jesus?

    That is scary . . . but it is probably popular

    You can put young people in a room and pump them all up but when they leave into the world then it shows what they are really like.

    In one of my classes was a young man who came to class dressed in slacks and a shirt with a collar who some students labelled as a Jesus freak. He came to class with a Bible in hand and separated himself from the rest of the class in such a way that he was ineffective. All I knew is that another student told a few of us that his dad was a local fundamentalist church pastor. I don't know of one student who ever had a discussion with him about his faith.

    My concern is the heaviness of the issues they are laying on the children. It is to much to soon. It is excessive and abusive. These children are not old enough to process this through their minds correctly.

    I too am concerned over the movie.

    From watching some stuff on youtube, like the Becky Fischer interview, and the interview with the girl called Tory, I am worried.

    True, I want our children trained to be strong Christians, but to train them the way the Islamists train their children?

    Becky Fischer makes the comment that she would like to see our kids be as willing to lay down their lives for Christ as the Islamists do.

    I really don't want to teach my children to strap on bomb belts to advance Christianity. It is not biblical.

    OK, I have moved past concerned to outraged!

    I just had a terrible thought... If parents that don't know anything about true Christianity watch this movie.... How hard will it be to get their children to come to church? or even a God honoring Bible camp next yr?

    That saddens me... the media will take this and make all of us good Christians look like these goof balls that are brain washing their children.

    The child said he got saved a 5.... I got saved at 8, my sister 6.. but not as extreme as he said it.... He says "because I just wanted more of life." He was only 5!!!!

    When listening to the kids, you can tell they are just parroting the adults... that is brain washing.

    My kids WON'T see it!

    Yeah we are in a spiritual war... to be fought spiritually... I wonder if these kids know that. Some of them look younger than 4!

    sounds like a teen I had in class a couple yrs ago....
    He too was a son of a fundamentalist... he tried to disagree with everything I taught... kept interrupting with, "well, MY Bible says" as if he only had the truth.

    and to make matters worse, we not only have to watch the ad here on BB, but now, it is between the the boxes "baptist board announcements" and the debate forums when you click on "home"... I have never seen an ad here on BB placed there...

    Can we petition the powers that be to not emphasize this movie on BB?

    I have DSL, that may be it... It has been on BB for over a week now...
    It says, "This fall, America will be born again.... Jesus Camp"

    Why am I being plagued by it? You must be special!!
