These five short films, produced by Ben Sullivan at Novel Motion Pictures, address key components in a paradigm shift that will transform one’s perception of God: Hell, creation, Scripture, fear, and “free will.”

To that end, Peter has developed a set of discussion questions for each of these short films. Would you consider gathering a group of friends to enjoy a time of connecting and discussion around these ideas? If so, you can download discussion questions here: Downside Up Discussion Questions

Or is God creating free will in us?
