Editorial Reviews


Every Christian should see through their eyes.

The church is at war over homosexuality. Will our youth be the casualties?

Through My Eyes provides an unflinchingly honest look at the role of today's young Christians in the gay debate: what they really think, how they perceive the church, and what they wish other Christians knew.

Over two dozen young Christians agreed to share their private feelings, struggles, and experiences on camera. All of them have a personal stake in the debate. And all of them hoped that their stories might make a difference.

Created for Christians by Christians, Through My Eyes tackles one of the most controversial topics today with compassion and sensitivity, shining new light on the debate for people on both sides. It's unlike anything you've seen before.

It's a powerful, eye-opening experience you won't soon forget.


Also includes booklet, 4 simple ways to change someone's life, and a special on-disc "discussion version" for classes and groups.

"Through My Eyes" is a must-see for all Christians who are serious about living out the Gospel as it paves the way for reflective dialog among those who are seeking to put into practice Christ's message to "love one another as I have loved you." In this DVD, over two dozen Christians in their teens and twenties share their stories of what it means to be created in the image and likeness of God, who happen to have been born gay, and who long above all else to worship God with their entire being and desire that His holy and perfect will be done in their lives.

Not just a message for Christian communities who want to understand more of what it means to be Christian and gay, "Through My Eyes" is a testimony of the lives that Christ has changed through His love. This video will enhance every church's library as it provides fruit for discussion among Sunday school classes, youth and adult ministries, and other groups searching for what it means to love without condition.

As a Christian who has struggled with being gay my entire life, this video has provided me with the voice(s) to share my faith with friends and family. Like these ladies and gentlemen in the video, I didn't know how to reconcile being Christian and gay--mainly because I thought I was the only one. I felt that I had to fix who I was by continually praying for God to change me. I no longer feel that there is something that needs to be "fixed" because I now know nothing was broken in the first place; I was created in a manner exactly as God intended me to be. I now realize that I'm not alone: that there are others who are gay and have committed their lives to following the voice of the Good Shepherd by living out His message in our daily lives.

What's phenomenal about this documentary is that there is no narrator providing any kind of structure or background to it. The people being interviewed simply speak from their experience -- their fears, their horror, their joys and their experiences good and bad. And yet, it flows well together as a kind of tapestry of lives and held my attention throughout.

For Christians who are really interested in understanding what it's like to be a Christian (coming from a Christian home, growing up in church and all that) and realizing that you're gay, this is for you.

Through My Eyes is the first documentary I've seen that's only agenda is to ask people to listen. There are no "this is what you should think" or "these people are wrong/right because..." statements. It's just young Christians, who happen to be glbt, sharing their stories. A must see for any Christian!

Truly amazing film about young people who are Christian, and have had to struggle with the question "Why did God make me gay?" Very powerful testamony as some recall family who threw them out of the house, and friends who turned their backs on them, all the while keeping God at the center of their lives. A MUST for any church that wants to honestly deal with how one can be gay AND Christian.

"Through My Eyes" is a compelling documentary of the stories of gay youth/young adults who came to terms (and still coming to terms in some cases) with the struggle in our society of being gay and a Christian. Each individual recounts his or her own experiences of dicovering and acknowledging their homosexuality, often painfully, alonside the tenets of their faith they hold both dearly in the midst of internal conflict and rejection from members of their church, their friends and even family members.

Some of the experiences are difficult to watch; the stories are often told with a matter-of-fact style that upon reflection stir the viewer first with understanding and then oftentimes with the ramifications of what some of the featured individuals share. One of the most heart-breaking being one of the women interviewed sharing how when she was 8 her Sunday School teacher made a comment about a lesbian couple she saw as a group of young students went on a field trip. Now an adult, the interviewed individual reflects on the fact that incident was the one and only thing she retained from that Sunday School teacher.

Others, whether in a ministry-capacity in a church, people from urban and rural areas, whose faith influenced the path of their lives share similar stories of the self-hate, depression, long nights of secret tears, discouragement, rejection but also the beauty of reconciling oneself and the joy of forgiveness, a work in progress for anyone.

The broad spectrum of personalities in the documentary negate an easy assumption culture can have of creating a singular "type" of what it means to be gay or lesbian, the diversity of the gay (and Christian) community; of the glbt community as a whole.

This video provides an outstanding resource for churches to examine the issues of homosexuality within their congregations. The people featured in this video could be youth in your church, people desperately seeking to follow God wherever He calls them. This video does not attempt to tell you how to answer the question about homosexuality in your congregation; it introduces you to how young people in your church may be struggling to make sense of themselves as people trying to follow Jesus.
