was born from a desire to communicate the truth about birth control and family planning from the Word of God to other believers. By devouring the scriptures and gathering insights from experts all around the United States, our movies will communicate the Biblical position on Birth Control and its impact on the Church, Marriage, and Family. It became our goal to boil all of the information we gathered down to its essence and present it in a format that is fast paced, dense and engaging in it’s style.
We live in a culture where there is no fundamental difference on the issue of child prevention between the church of Jesus Christ and unbelievers. The fruit of our contraceptive culture is rancid and many voices are calling for a restoration of the church. In order to effectively communicate the truth about birth control and it’s impact on the church, marriage, and family, we have to ask two questions: How Did We Get Here, and Is It Up to Us?
This engagingly fast-paced documentary takes a historic look at the modern church’s public embrace and overwhelming acceptance of child prevention as biblical theology. The reinterpretation of Scripture and rejection of our church history in the mid twentieth century allowed for responsible planned procreation.
No longer was the raising of godly seed seen as the primary purpose of marriage; but now marriage was redefined as a union “intended for companionship and mutual spiritual aid”. This new view, brought on by the European spread of eugenics, brought rise to a departure from centuries of universal agreement among all branches of the church. In essence, the church was complicit in championing “privacy in marriage” to allow the liberty of responsible planned parenthood, heedless of scriptural authority or precedence.“In answering How Did We Get Here? we will be one step closer to a return to the Church’s historic and Biblical view of marriage and a resurgence of desire for godly offspring.”
Director Kevin Peeples’ desire to create a film on birth control was founded on his own personal journey to answer the question posed by the upcoming film BIRTH CONTROL: Is It Up to Us?, but once the project was started he and his fellow producers, Scott Dix and Nathan Nicholson, discovered that before answering that question, a look into the history of the church was in order. How Did We Get Here? took the team around the United States capturing captivating interviews with authors, historians, theologians, radio talk show hosts and others, such as Dr. George Grant, Dr. Allan Carlson, Geoffrey Botkin, Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr., Lila Rose, Kevin Swanson, and Julie Roys.
Starting with creation and ending in the late 20th Century, this film will look at how the Church’s voice changed radically in the 20th century due to overwhelming social pressure. Before we can discuss the desperate need to return to Scripture and to the Church’s historic position on marriage and family, a need arose to present where we came from and how we got here. How Did We Get Here? sets the stage for Is It Up to Us?.
BIRTH CONTROL: How Did We Get Here? is set to release in the U.S. in December 2012 with BIRTH CONTROL: Is It Up to Us? slated for U.S. release in early 2013. Sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date with upcoming products and resources.

Our follow up documentary that will theologically and philosophically prove that birth control and family planning is truly not up to us, but up to God to control. Using logical argumentation, we will provide evidence for, and tackle the objections to, some of the greatest arguments for a life without contraception; a life where God is in control of our womb.
For Christian Couples, this film will answer questions such as:
- Is scripture sufficient on the issue of child prevention and birth control?
- Is birth control just a matter of conscience, and a choice for married couples to make in the privacy of their marriage?
- What does God require of our marriages?
- What is the dominion mandate, and isn’t the world overpopulated?
- Hasn’t God given us wisdom and Christian Liberty to make our own choices?
- If I am fruitful through adoption, do I have to be fruitful through child-bearing?
All of these questions and many, many more will be answered in this film. We’ve prayerfully searched the scriptures for the truth, asking, Is It Up to Us?
