Movie Tuesday ~ Paint the Wall Black: The Story of Nini’s Deli

It has long been my perspective that the grit, wonder, and inspiration of true stories far surpasses anything in the fictional realm. And Paint the Wall Black only serves to bolster this belief.

Meet Juan, a dear brother whom God graciously saved out of a number of depravities. Listen to his story of serving Christ and ministering to others through his family’s business…and what happened when he stood his ground on God’s Word on Black Lives Matter during the 2020 riots. Bonus material after the movie: Jon Harris, of the Conversations that Matter Podcast, interviews Juan and Pastor Joe.

A couple of caveats:

The filmmakers nobly attempted the herculean task of bleeping or blurring out every audible or written instance of profanity and vulgarity. But as you will see, it was impossible to edit out all of them. You will see the F-word. You will see middle fingers flying. Many pagans express themselves in such ways. If you cannot handle that, please do not watch this film.

Featuring this film on my blog does not equal an endorsement of Metro Praise International church, which, from its website, appears to be Pentecostal. Though I appreciate their strong focus on preaching the gospel and don’t doubt their confession of Christ based on what I’ve seen in this movie, Pentecostalism holds to some doctrines which are unbiblical. If you’re looking for a church in the Chicago or Dallas areas please see my Searching for a new church? resource instead.

  1. Thank you so much for posting the “Paint The Wall Black” video. I agree fully, I was wary of the Metro Life Church theological stance, but the boldness and bravery of this young man and how God transformed him from such a depraved past is worthy of admiration. I sent him an email personally and thanked him for telling his story and I offered continued prayers that God would keep doing His good work in Juan’s life and family, for His glory. God can work in any life, despite our shortcomings or theological faults, and that is why I pray that He continue to cultivate, refine and purify His church.


  2. Totally agree with your opening comments. Fabulous story that really needs to be seen by the Body of Christ, especially those who are now supporting BLM and CRT. Thank you for always being so straightforward and clear. It is refreshing!!


  3. I am watching your documentary now. I am shocked at the evil presented. Thank you for sharing this and so many people stand with you!!!
