More of the story from Seven Deadly Words DVD
Many are surprised with the opening of Seven Deadly Words movie since it includes a train arriving, eerie music to add some tension and also the title in itself offers some kind of mystery. The gripping film is inspired by several true events. Outwardly the movie's plot seems quite simple. Evan Bennett (Roy Lynam ) is a young Pastor who accepts the challenge of ministering an old church in Connersville and discovers that the church is in a profound financial predicament. The head Deacon Vincent Haman (Mark A. Ginther) and his family have much control over the church and say the Seven Deadly Words that close the door to new ideas. At one point Pastor Bennett meets Walt Tannin (Wayne Greeson) and he advises the pastor about how the Haman family were always going to be watching every move he made. Also the pastor's wife Elena (Guisela Moro) is told the same by some ladies as well. It goes to show Pastor Bennet that the community instead of being united is rather divided. In the film is shown the different meetings that were held with the Pastor and his congregation to manage the church's budget. Turns out that the big problem was that the funds were not appropriately used, a huge amount of money was being sent to help in the missions and the local church was left with nothing. One of Vincent Haman's daughters is working as a missionary so he is invested in maintaining that money from the church for the missions.
Now in Seven Deadly Words DVD, Pastor Evan works hard to continue to bring more people to the church and offer a well-round budget that can save the status of the church even though there are many in opposition to his plan. When he seems to have found success with the church something happens to bring him down. By the end of the film, there are various mysteries and twists that will leave viewers wanting more.
One of the goals of this film is to remind people that they should set priorities in the church. That yes, the church has a certain responsibility to help the necessities of the congregation and the missions also. But if the church is no more then the missions are affected by it, there has to be a balance in it all and a compromise. For a moment in the film, Evan's wife doubts her husband's way of thought about the whole situation. But Evan is sure of what he has to do and that he had been called there for a reason. The writer of the film presents a parallel between Paul and Pastor Evan. In Paul‰ۡóÁÌ_́ÌÎ_̴Ìös letter to the Galatians, he says that Jesus himself was the one who made him an Apostle. Evan also believed that God has called him to bring that church back to life and that he had the Lord's support.
