      Very much. Content wise i didn’t find this film that interesting as I’m not into hip hop but it was ok. Technically it’s good to see some decent quality 3d 360. I would be interested to know how they go about creating these films.

    Thank you road to vr for not censoring or removing my posts and comments.Uploadvr removes everything I leave and I have supported that site for years now and this one too.I have been reported on the uploadvr discussions as a spammer which is not true.Yes within the topics I share briefly my faith in Jesus.I have been at the frontlines of vr since its beginning.Also have promoted and supported almost all vr.

    • jj

      you have spammed your religious beliefs a lot in here…

      There have been cases of you joining a discussion specifically just to say only things about jesus and shaming those who have not agreed with you. So for you to come here and deny it, after upload vr took action against you, is pretty disrespectful and not honest to this great community.

      You have even spammed your youtube channel and its faith videos in these comment sections without saying anything else…. so yeah thats spam.

      The best part is that you’re not fooling anyone here, and you’ve laid down THE WORST example of what a christian should be by forcing yourself and views into discussions that were about vr and derailing it till we just stop.

      So stop lying.
      “within the topics I share briefly my faith in Jesus” This is not the place to talk about jesus or your youtube channel. So you’re already derailing from the topic because vr and Christianity are not related for anyone other than you.

      Theres an easy solution to this, stop spamming about jesus and stick to the topic at hand…. we wouldn’t be here and you wouldn’t be banned from upload if you’d just stop imposing your beliefs onto others.

      if this continues ill start posting links to your posts because others and I know very well they exist because i’ve called you out so many times for it.

      I just flagged your stupid post as spam.
      Religion and politics dont belong here!

        God created heaven and earth and every living thing.Including you.If it wasnt for Jesus coming to earth mankind would be hopeless.Jesus send us His followers to share the good news,if you reject that.Its bad news.

        • jj

          Hey RtVR can we get this guy banned now?

          • Rosko

            just block user its easy.

          “Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.” (Matthew 7:6)

          You embarrass all Christians and don’t know the bible if it hit you in the head. Practice what you preach and stop being a nuisance.

          • JesuSaveSouls

            Trenix I forgive you and hope you have much blessings and it doesnt come back against you the mean things you said about me to me.The scripture no but your personal opinion yes.

          • Trenix

            I don’t need nor want your forgiveness. You are the perfect example of why people are atheist. Ask forgiveness from God for being such a terrible Christian who doesn’t practice what he preaches.

          • JesuSaveSouls

            Well for Jesus and God the Father through His word and Spirit I have to forgive you.Its really more to please God and for my own heart,mind and soul than if you want it or not.I do for yourself ask you to forgive me if I have offended you.

          • JesuSaveSouls

            Well as a believer it’s my responsibility to show my total appreciation unto my Lord and Savior Jesus by sharing His life and soul saving word of truth with all especially here with the lost.It surprises me that if you are actually a confessing and profession believer why you wouldnt be moved with conviction or compassion to share God’s word with people so desperately needing to hear it.You seem so ensnared and entangled by the lies of the enemy that you sunk so low to the depths to actually verbally abuse and try to harm those as myself who do share the love of Jesus with all.Please for your own sake,repent and return or turn for the first time to Jesus.
