This film was aimed at capturing the story of a child's understanding of the popular Ephesians scripture labelled the "Armor of God". The child in this film used all that she had to clothe herself like a Spiritual warrior.
The film shows us that a child's understanding of the scriptures may be in some case different but they too need to learn the word of the Lord. This is my first film that is based on the scriptures however with my process in creating it I am encourages to produce more of this kind to aid in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.
This film "Child Armor" depicts how a child perceived the Ephesian 6 scripture. Her understanding being limited to the physical realm saw her use of local equipment to arm herself for warfare.
This film is relevant to Ephesians 6:10-20 in that it includes how children too can use the word of God as they grow to empower themselves. It is true that our battles are not fought in the physical realm but the effects of the spiritual warfare manifest in the physical realm also and explaining this little much to our children can help them to understand that God is our defense and that once we equip ourselves with the righteous weapons then we are ready to fight with God by our sides.
