“…the righteous gives and does not hold back.” Proverbs 21:26
I want to tell you about a powerful documentary that your partnership makes possible, coming to TLN on Thursday, August 23rd at 8:00pm CT. It’s urgent that you know about it because it focuses on one of the most critical problems facing American youth today, and it could be affecting your family or someone close to you. The documentary is entitled “Fallen Idols” and it chronicles the lives of 4 professional world champion skateboarders who have been redeemed from a life of drugs and criminal activity experienced during their rise to fame.
The stories are taken from the celebrity skateboarders themselves, their loved ones and friends – and are put into a gripping and chilling message about the terrible consequences of drug abuse. These were skateboarding idols – the ones everyone wanted to be – until drugs, addiction and arrests brought these golden boys down. But the real story in the documentary is one of hope as the skateboarders share how they found redemption and deliverance. It features unseen archival skateboarding footage of the founders of skateboarding as we know it today.
Friend, it’s your support that makes it possible for TLN to air relevant specials like this!
Many parents have a hard time believing their teenagers would ever use drugs. And for many parents that’s true. But with the bullying and peer pressure both on and off the campus nowadays, most teens feel the pressure to experiment with drugs. Kids are constantly exposed to images on television and movies of drug use by “cool” people who are unfortunately often their role models.
But “Fallen Idols” turns that false image upside down and features world class skateboarders who have been in the pits of drug abuse and rebellion and have found their way out through their relationship with Christ.
According to the producer, this documentary features “No preachiness, no talking down, just hard core music, action and real life drama.” “Fallen Idols” is a must watch for any family with teenagers or pre-teens. I can’t over emphasize the importance of setting aside the time to watch this documentary. I encourage you to schedule the time to watch it as a family and then take time to talk about it. Call your friends and tell them about it. I would even encourage you to have a “Fallen Idols” party and invite friends over to watch it. It’s that important.
I’m excited about having “Fallen Angels” on TLN. It’s the kind of hard-core ministry opportunity that is needed in our culture today. And we are doing everything we can to make sure that we are reaching our culture.
I don’t have to tell you it is not easy and we can’t do it alone. We need your prayers and we need your financial support to continue to not only offer this kind of powerful ministry programming, but also to continue to be a Christian television and internet presence.
We’re committed to providing messages on the Total Living Network 24 hours a day, 7 days a week that speak to the life-changing, grace-filled love of God and saving power of Christ available to anyone, anywhere, regardless of their past, hurts, abuses, sins, crimes or disappointments.
So please stand with us with your generous financial support. Whatever amount you can send will be appreciated. Thank you – we can continue to fulfill our mission because of your partnership, and we are grateful.
“Fallen Idols” can be viewed on TLN on Thursday, August 23rd @ 8:00pm CT – on Comcast basic channel 138, ROKU, Amazon FireTV, Android TV and via our live stream @ tln.com.
