Christian J. Pinto is an award winning, documentary filmmaker and founder of Adullam Films – a Christian film ministry, dedicated to defending the Gospel of Jesus Christ through film and video production. He is also the host of the Noise of Thunder Radio program, where issues of history and the Bible are the chief topics of discussion and debate.
Chris founded Adullam Films in 1999 for the purpose of chronicling through film & video production the chief evidence of our time that proves the word of God is true, and that Jesus Christ is coming soon. The name “Adullam” comes from 1 Samuel 22:1-2:
“David … escaped to the cave Adullam;
and … every one who was in distress, and
every one who was in debt, and every
one who was discontented, gathered
themselves unto him; and he became a
captain over them …”
This passage provides a beautiful picture of our Lord Jesus Christ who “gathers the outcasts” (Psalm 147:2, Isaiah 11:12) to Himself. As a filmmaker in the present world system, it's easy to relate to being an outcast for Christ. With the works of Hollywood and the entertainment industry increasing in wickedness, it is critical for all who love the Lord to dedicate their works and talents to Him. Because of this, our labor is dedicated to Christ and His Gospel.
While all the Scriptures are cherished, there are several that hold a particular meaning for our ministry. The first is a verse that comes from Daniel 11:32: “… the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.” This is our desire, to know the Lord Jesus, be strong for His testimony, and do exploits in His name. Since our work began, we have had the great pleasure of meeting a number of watchmen for the Lord who share the desire to fulfill this prophecy.
Another important Scripture comes from the Book of Ezekiel, where God rebukes the priests of Jerusalem, saying:
“Her priests have violated my law, and
have profaned mine holy things; they have
put no difference between the holy and
profane, neither have they shown difference
between the unclean and the clean … and
I am profaned among them.”
God was reproving the priests for failing to separate “the holy” things of God from the “profane” things of the world. The word holy means “separate.” The desire of man to unite all nations, peoples, languages, governments and religions utterly negates the holiness of God. It is, if you will, an unholy alliance. According to Scripture it is also the leading agenda for the powers and principalities of Satan to bring forth Antichrist (2 Thess. 2:8-9, Rev. 13:7). Sadly, many of the ministers (i.e. priests) who should be standing against the unification of Christianity with the world, are in fact helping to bring it to pass. As such, the determination of our work is to be a source of warning and edification to our brethren in the Church to "come out from among them, and be separate" (2 Corinthians 6:17); and to compel those outside of Christ to repent and believe the Gospel, for the Kingdom of God is at hand.
Our ministry is here to serve and to be a help. If there is anything we can do for you, please do not hesitate to call or write to us.
May the Lord Jesus be your strength and comfort.
