The embedded video has been removed due to an unintentional misuse of it on my part.  Please follow the link after the film synopsis to watch the movie.  It’s excellent.

Volition (n)- The act of making a choice. Sometimes the choice of inaction has consequences stronger than we could ever imagine. Throughout history, men have been faced with difficult choices in a world that makes it easy for them to conform. This film explores the hope that lies behind every decision made in the face of adversity; the hope that is buried in the heart of those that look beyond themselves and see something bigger worth fighting for (from The Doorpost Film Project)

This film has a simple message.  In matters both great and small, we’re constantly faced with a choice between moral courage and moral cowardice; and the choices we make cannot be divorced from their consequences.

This is a morality tale.  Don’t mistake it for the gospel, or think that I’ve done so.  No one will be saved by moral courage.  No one has ever been good enough to atone for their own innate resistance to God.  No one can know God except through Jesus Christ. “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you had known me, you would have known my Father also.” (John 14:6-7)

And there is more to be said about the choices we make than what this short film attempts to say.  But what it does say, it says well.   The choices we make really matter, and often have far-reaching consequences.  Do what’s right, even when it’s hard
