Mel Gibson’s ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ and Why Christians Who Keep the Sabbath Inspire Us So Much
We want a faith that stands out for its boldness. A faith that, once again, defies the odds. A faith thats alive.
The story of Desmond T. Doss is one of courage, unflinching faith and a bygone commitment to the 10 Commandments.
Much like the 1924 Olympian Eric Liddell (Chariots of Fire), a committed Scottish Christian who runs “for the glory of God,” Desmond T. Doss made a commitment, due to his Seventh-Day Adventist faith, not to work on the Sabbath. Doss also decided that he could not bear arms.
Mel Gibson’s soon-to-be-released filmHacksaw Ridgetells the story of Doss in Hollywood fashion, and it’s already receiving both critical and fan acclaim.
