“End of the Spear”: Movie about murdered missionaries is more relevant than ever

Ben DaviesRebel Host | Rebel Reel Reviews

I’ve done videos about lots of controversial subjects, but it seems I’ve finally hit a hot button topic that everyone wants to talk about: The recent murder of an American missionary by a tribe cut off from civilization.


I keep being asked why this young man felt compelled to share the gospel with these people, even at the risk of his own life. I tried to explain it but then I remembered a 2005 movie you may not have heard of that might put it into clearer perspective.

The End of the Spear tells the incredible true story of American missionaries who were killed in 1956, on a similar mission. However, what happened after that is what’s really amazing. It’s a powerful story of forgiveness.

Sounds like an interesting movie.

Glenn, I talk to all those groups when they come. They are deluded and need to hear the truth. What they do with that truth is their call. They just let me do mission work in reverse. They come to me.

Some people are still complaining about Christians converting Europe and the Americas.
Most people are afraid to say what they think, let alone be remotely as brave as these missionaries.

Ben, can you say in all honesty that you have always welcomed and talked to (and never felt the slightest twinge of resentment or just tried to pretend you were not home) when Jehovah’s Witnesses or Latter Day Saints came knocking at your door…..;-)

I can remember the Hare Krishna….the Moonies….Guru Maharaji…..the Process….the Scientologists….

It’s enough to make a fellow take up archery.

Yes, Ben, it isomer relevant than ever but Mr-Babies-Are-Paraites will not watch it because it would conflict with his pre-conceived ideas. Lefties’ ideas must not be challenged. Perhaps with a trigger warning of some kind?
