Opinion: Of whom the world was not worthy

I stumbled across the following while reading a link on my wife's Facebook page: Having read Jim Elliot's (while to be more correct, his wife's plublication of his) diary and other happenings; "Through Gates of Splendor" two or three times, I have always had the same feelings about the movie, "End of the Spear". The greater tragedy was not the death of the missionaries but the fact that only fifty or so years later that we could produce a movie that misses the very point of what it was all about.  Not only must it grieve our Lord but truly it does a disservice to those "of whom the world was not worthy (Hebrews 11:38).
