ORU to Host Oklahoma Premier of “Nefarious: Merchant of Souls”

Nefarious PosterOral Roberts University will be the host site for the Oklahoma premier of “Nefarious: Merchant of Souls.” The hard-hitting documentary exposes horrific details of the modern sex trade industry which enslaves some 27 million people worldwide, including children.

The screening is free and will be held in Christ Chapel on Sunday, November 11 beginning at 7 p.m. Sponsors include the ORU Christian Worldview Committee and the prayer ministry, Exodus Cry.

“It is important to make people aware of the sex trade industry because it is not just a problem in developing nations,” said ORU Assistant Professor and Christian Worldview Committee Member Christopher Martin. “In fact, some of the busiest sex markets in the world are in ‘developed’ countries.”

“Nefarious” is directed by Benjamin Nolot and has received over 21 film festival honors including: Award of Excellence, Best Screenplay, Award of Merit, Silver Award for Social Issues and Best of Show.

Members of the group Incurable Fanatics will also be available before and after the screening to speak with students. For more information on the film, please visit nefariousdocumentary.com.
