AUSTRALIA’S most influential evangelical church is facing criticism after it was featured on the cover of a new film about its sanctuary in Melbourne.
In a story by The Courier Mail, Grace Family Church is portrayed as a sanctuary church in the film, which stars Australian actor and Christian apologist Joel Lavery.
In the film Lavery says he has seen Grace family and that it was an evangelical church that he attended as a child.
“They were one of the first evangelical churches I knew about.
It’s called Grace Family,” Lavery said.”
I went to church a few years ago, and it’s a very traditional Christian church.
I didn’t see any of these things.”
It’s not a place of sin, it’s not something that would bring people into a hell.
“Lavery said he was surprised to see the church featured on a cover of the film.”
There’s a lot of people who will look at me and say, ‘How come you’re in the news?’,” he said.
The Grace Family was founded in 1872 and is now the largest Christian church in Australia, with more than 600 churches.
It is the only Anglican church in Victoria and the only Australian church in Western Australia.
Grace Family Church’s official website has been taken down after the film was released.”
As a Christian, I’ve come to believe that Grace Family is a beautiful place to be.
It is an evangelical congregation, and has always been, it is always will be,” the website reads.”
Grace family was founded by John and Catherine Grace, in the 1800s, when they were at the height of their popularity and power, and they had a mission to save people from the devil and the forces of sin.
“A number of prominent conservative and Christian politicians have spoken out against the film’s portrayal of the church, which was established in 1882 and has since changed hands several times.
Liberal MP Andrew Nikolic has labelled the film “utterly false”.”
It would be like the movie Titanic, where all these Titanic movies have been made, and the story’s changed to a story about the Titanic, which is totally untrue,” he told the ABC.”
The Grace family is not an evangelical Christian church, and in fact, there are many other churches that exist.
“This film tells a completely false story about a very important group of people, and there is no truth to it whatsoever.”
Liberal Senator Daniel Andrews has labelled it “reckless”.
“I think it’s irresponsible to make a movie about a group that has become so prominent in Australia and that has been so widely and openly supported by people like the Grace family,” he explained.
“If the Grace Family were a Christian church that were to be featured on that movie, it would have been a real shock to most people.”
The church’s founder, John and Mary Grace, who founded Grace Family in Melbourne in 1852, died in 1901.
