For the Love of God: How the church is better and worse than you ever imagined is a documentary by the Centre for Public Christianity (CPX) in Australia. It confronts the worst of what Christians have done, while also tracing the origins of Western values like human rights, charity, humility, and non-violence.
For the Love of God goes back in time to examine the life and teachings of Jesus Christ to see how one man upended not just his world, but also ours. It travels the globe recounting how the followers of Jesus have actually followed Jesus throughout history – featuring stories such as ‘holy war’ during the Crusades, the German church’s capitulation to Nazism, but also the sacrificial care of the sick at a leper colony in Hawaii, and Martin Luther King Jr’s commitment to non-violent resistance.
