ADDICT Scene 1

Updated on December 18, 2011

In the beginning...

In the beginning...

 V9: Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God? Be not deceived: Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor the effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

V10: nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners shall inherit the Kingdom of God.

 

 V11: And such were some of you. But ye are washed, ye are sanctified, ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 

 

TITLES OVER MONTAGE: 

                                

MUSIC- JEFFERSON AIRPLANE-“GO ASK ALICE”

MONTAGE reveals a wealthy housewife having a breakfast of vodka and Valium. An on-duty detective smokes crack with two prostitutes in a hotel room with his gun and badge fully exposed. There is a high-powered corporate businessman snorting cocaine at his desk in a high-rise office building. A college football player shoots steroids into his buttocks. A big-time politician revels in the cheers of an adoring crowd. There is high school teacher shooting heroin between her toes in an empty locked classroom. A high school basketball coach smiles lustfully at a shoebox filled with $50,000 sent to him by a college recruiter, for the purchase of his best player.                MUSIC FADES OUT:

 

Dissolve into a beautiful, huge stained glass picture of black Jesus hanging on the cross overlooking an adult gospel choir and a group of assistant ministers sitting around the pulpit; all listening intently as their pastor preaches.

 

INT. REDEMPTION EVANGELISTIC CHURCH-PHILADELPHIA PA- SUNDAY MORNING

 

PASTOR JOHNSON

(at altar preaching at the top of his lungs)

Most of ya in here just wanna cry the blues on how you ain’t got no money, how you aint got no job, your husband just left you and this morning on the way to church you just got robbed! But I am here to tell you not to fret beloved, because you are a child

WE TRACK as the organist chimes in with powerful shouting music. Pastor Johnson and the entire congregation begin to dance in the Holy Spirit.  Pastor Johnson returns to the altar.

 

PASTOR JOHNSON (CONT’D)

(singing, the congregation joins in)

I surrender all, I surrender all, yes Lord I surrender all.

 

Pastor Johnson’s hands are held high over his head as he looks up towards the Heavens.

 

PASTOR JOHNSON (CONT’D)

Yes Lord Jesus we surrender to you, yes Lord Jesus we

commit our lives to you and for your Kingdom!

 

A MID SHOT reveals Pastor Johnson begin to tremble, and then shake, his staff of minister’s rush to his aid, as the pastor begins to weep.

 

PASTOR JOHNSON (CONT’D)

Yes Lord, Yes Lord, YES! Brothers and sisters I have just

been given a Word from ALL MIGHTY GOD!         

                                                     

The congregation begins praising the Lord at the top of their lungs.

 

PASTOR JOHNSON (CONT’D)

a child that will grow to be a mighty soul winning

            man ofGod!

We see the pastor taking three-year-old Keith into his arms as Keith’s parents weep and praise the Lord along with the rest of the congregation.  Cut to a CLOSE-UP revealing the pastor placing his hand on Keith’s forehead as Keith begins to cry.

 

PASTOR JOHNSON (CONT’D)

Father God in the name of Jesus, I ask you to cover your

child under Your Precious Blood, I ask you to send

a Legion of Your Mightiest Angels to protect this little

preacher as he grows and matures into being exactly who

and allow this baby to become a mighty soul winning Man

of God that will complete Your Perfect Will! Lead Him!

The entire congregation erupts into a spiritual frenzy with the organist playing his loudest hymn. The choir is singing at the top of their lungs with church members dancing in the HolyGhost, Speaking in Unknown Tongues, running through thechurch in the Spirit and falling out in the Holy Ghost.                 

 

DISSOVLE:   FLASHFORWARD TWELVE YEARS LATER:

 

INT. REDEMPTION EVANGELISTIC CHURCH-SUNDAY MORNING         

 

DISSOLVE into the middle of Fifteen-year-old Keith preaching his final Sunday morning service at Redemption Evangelistic Church.

 

                     FIFTEEN-YEAR-OLD KEITH

The congregation is silent, shaking, trembling, and weeping uncontrollably.

 

                 FIFTEEN-YEAR-OLD KEITH (CONT’D)

THERE ARE HOMOSEXUALS IN THIS HOUSE OF GOD

MORE THAN AN ABOMANATION! THERE ARE DEMONS

KNOW YOU NEED TO BE DELIVERED FROM THE GRIP

OF SATAN’S GRASP, COME ON UP TO THE ALTAR AND

LET MY JESUS MAKE YOU FREE AT LAST!

                       

CRANE SHOT of the congregation including Pastor Johnson, Keith’s parents, the organist, the choir, the deacon board, children, trustees and ushers all rush to the altar to have Reverend Keith lay holy hands on them. The congregation forms a long line that spans the entire length of the church.   Keith is laying hands on the congregation one at a time.

 

FIFTEEN-YEAR-OLD KEITH (CONT’D)

       IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS I CLAIM YOUR

       DELIVERANCE AND VICTORY OVER YOUR WICKED

       DESIRE FOR MONEY AND POWER!

 

An ARC SHOT shows Pastor Johnson falling out in the Holy Spirit in SLOW MOTION.  We CRANE SHOT to reveal the congregation exploding in a Spiritual frenzy as people of every age begin to fall out in the Holy Spirit without Keith laying hands on them. Keith now stands in front of the pulpit reaching out an outstretched hand towards the congregation, in which all but two members are completely engulfed in the Holy Spirit!

 

A CLOSE UP exposes sixteen-year-old Tyrone “T” Johnson sitting in the back of the church alone, staring at Keith filled with envy, hatred, and contempt.  We then cut to seventeen-year-old Delana Jackson, sitting in the front of the church holding her two-year-old son, staring at fifteen-year-old Keith completely consumed with the lust of the flesh.
