The story of compassion, by the first victim of Columbine, will debut in October!
Proverbs 17:17 (KJV)
17 A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
Proverbs 18:24 (KJV)
24 A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
John 15:13 (KJV)
13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Ephesians 4:32 (KJV)
32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
Colossians 3:12-13 (KJV)
12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
It’s been almost two decades, since the Columbine massacre, that left 13 innocent victims dead. One victim’s faith is moving in people’s lives, in a new film about hope and forgiveness.
Rachel Scott was just like most 17-year-olds. She concerned herself with graduating from high school as well as work. Unfortunately, her life was taken from her in 1999 by Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. She was the first of 11 peers that were killed by their classmates. Before being killed, she was asked if she believed in God, in which she replied that she did.
Rachel had a journal with entries about her relationship with Jesus and her thoughts about compassion for mankind. Her diary was made into a film titled, “I’m Not Ashamed.”
Her feelings for those that have not yet come to know the Lord is very apparent in the movie.
“For the potential of this to reach the unreached, which was what her desire was – to see souls saved – I think she would think job well done,” her mother, Beth Nimmo shared with One News Now.
Nimmo believes that Rachel’s story is especially relevant today, with the spiritual warfare that students endure in the classroom.
“Schools are a campus for the enemy,” she stated. “It’s an open playground for him, because so much of the Christian voice has been stifled there, and now only a student can have that voice. It’s been stripped of any authority as far as teachers and administration go.”
“I’m Not Ashamed” will debut in theatres, in October.
