Movie: Machine Gun Preacher

Since this is a true-to-life story, this movie made it in my must-see list.

This is the story of Sam Childers from Pennsylvania, USA, a former drug-dealing shotgunner who came to know God and had the heart to help and rescue the enslaved children in Northern Uganda and Southern Sudan, Africa who were kidnapped, tortured, raped and brainwashed to be rebels by the brutal and notorious Lord's Resistance Army (LRA).


Here are some of the quotes from the movie that made an impression to me:


Lynn: "You can’t keep going the way you’ve been going."

Sam: “You found God?!”  
Lynn: “He found me.”

Sam: “Talking about peace in a room somewhere is useless.  You go out and make it.”

Sam: “God is looking out for every one of you as well.  All you got to do is open up the door and let Him in."

Rebel kid: “If we allow ourselves to be full of hate, then they’ve won.  We must not allow them to take our hearts.”

Daisy: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of an evil is for a good man to do nothing."
