Key Quotes from Jeremy Camp

“I shared my story for years, I wrote a book about it, and this is the first time I’ve been able to see it played back visually, and it’s not been easy.”

“God is using this pretty radically in people’s lives, and so for me it’s worth it to feel that pain.”

“God has not given us a spirit of fear…fear is not from the Lord. It’s from the enemy. So if you’re walking in fear, you have to understand, it’s the enemy speaking into your mind.” 

“My hope is there are going to be people that are not Christians that are going to watch this film and go, ‘Ok how did they get through this?’ and it’s going to point them to Christ. Or those that are Christians that are hurting, struggling, and are going to go, ‘Yeah, ok. The Lord is the only thing I can lean on.’”

“God doesn’t waste suffering.”

“Suffering is a necessary part of life, and it’s hard to say that, but he gives us the tools and the ability to walk through it with strength and with grace.”

“Jesus on the cross, he said…‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’ And of course, Jesus didn’t sin. So was that a sin to ask why?”

“[Adrienne] has been a big support, and she’s my champion because I don’t know how I’d be able to handle it if she wouldn’t have talked about it.” 

“There’s a lot of themes in this movie that youth pastors, pastors, leaders can draw from.”

“I’ve had many stories already of people that have watched the film saying, ‘I’ve battled with fear all my life, and I feel like I had a breakthrough.’”
