Nationally acclaimed evangelist John Luther is the last obstacle in the way of sweeping religious reform in the States. When a U.S. Senator and Luther's own supporters abduct and frame him in the murder of an innocent teenage girl, an unprecedented era of persecution is unleashed. Out on personal recognizance, Luther escapes police surveillance in search of the truth. And suddenly a once-normal life is targeted by a team of ex-military operatives who wage a relentless campaign to eliminate the incriminating evidence. As evangelist turned fugitive, Luther vows to expose anyone involved with, or profiting from, the girl's murder. It's a mission that brings him face-to-face with the coming storm of persecution that will threaten the entire American Christian community. Written by Daniel Lusko

persecuted yes i was!
17 October 2014 | by debi-lloydSee all my reviews

Persecuted is a very apt title as watching this religious mumbo jumbo was persecutory! Everything is contrived, even the preachers name. Propaganda reigns supreme, the poor Christian right being marginalised by an increasingly diverse religious society. Right wing conspiracy theorists will love this but it is dreadful from start to finish, even good actors could not save this garbage.Religious freedom features heavily but only appears to support christians! Very slow moving film, plot flaws everywhere and cheap looking, defo looks like a made for TV movie and should be restricted to god channels. Save 90 minutes of your life and give this a miss!!!
