Some of you have heard about the excellent 180 Movie, done by Ray Comfort and his ministry. It’s mind-blowing and unforgettable, a reminder that the truth can change your heart and set you free. My friend Joni Eareckson Tada described it as “Riveting!” and John Piper said, “I give my unflinching, joyful, trembling Yes to ‘180’. Unflinching, because it's right. Joyful, because it's good. Trembling, because our defeated enemy is still vicious.”
A few months ago, Ray asked for my input on the project and I was very positive in what I said. Eternal Perspective Ministries was also happy to donate 50,000 copies of Why Pro-Life? for them to use related to the video.
If you haven’t yet watched it, I’d encourage you to check out this fast-moving 33 minute film. I enthusiastically recommend it. (It’s available in its entirety for free online; you can also order DVDs for as low as $1.00 each, or an entire course curriculum, which includes Why Pro-Life?)
Ray recently sent an email with some of the responses so far to 180:
“I had always thought I was an ‘open minded person’ when it came to abortion. But after viewing this movie, my stance has changed.” —Greg
"Today I watched the movie for the second time and the gravity of what I did 14 years ago brought me to sobs.” —Penny
“I’ve had multiple abortions and I’ve heard abortion compared to the Holocaust before. But, I've never understood why…This video has been popping up all over Facebook. I finally clicked on the link. I am a history buff with a passion for WW2. My attention was immediately grabbed. As soon as the switch to abortion began I wanted to stop watching, but I couldn't. Part of me needed to keep watching. I don't know what to do with this information, but I think it is changing the way I view these things. I might need to watch it again. That's something I never thought I'd say.” —Candice
I echo Ray’s closing comment in his email: “May lives be saved, and sinners reached.”
