  • Anna’s Heart on Suffering for Jesus

    Anna’s Heart on… Suffering for Jesus Tortured for Christ Richard Wurmbrand Founder of The Voice of the Martyrs wrote a book called Tortured for Christ that I recently read.  This book impacted me in ways I didn’t think possible.  It also led me to pray on a regular basis for people all over the world that are being persecuted and even tortured every day. In this book is a quote by T.S. Eliot that I wanted to share here:...

  • Anna’s Heart on “Fervent” War Room Book

    Anna’s Heart on… “Fervent” War Room Book If you haven’t seen ‘War Room‘, make sure that you do.  What a powerful Christian movie about marriage and prayer.  The movie itself made a tremendous impact on my own prayer life and then I got a surprise. I received 2 books in the mail from a friend.  One entitled, “The Battle Plan for Prayer: From Basic Training to Targeted Strategies” by Stephen and Alex Kendrick and “Fervent: A Woman’s Battle Plan...

  • Anna’s Heart on Bible Movies

    Anna’s Heart on… Bible Movies Sometimes I really LOVE Bible movies and sometimes…not so much…and you can imagine the reason why. So, just in case you didn’t know, the reason I love some Bible movies are because they stay accurate or close to accurate to the actual words in the Bible.  And sometimes they even capture things that you hadn’t thought about while reading the Bible that really causes a person to read the Bible or even be convicted...

  • Anna’s Heart on Comedy in Christian Movies

    Anna’s Heart on… Comedy in Christian Movies What is comedy anyway? Comedy = Professional entertainment consisting of jokes and satirical sketches, intended to make an audience laugh. Even though I love to laugh, I rarely enjoy comedy for 2 reasons. Normally, a comedy means one of two things: It’s inappropriate humor It’s ridiculous stupidity type of humor When we watch a Christian movie, it should be a safe place, even in a comedy, but that isn’t always the case. ...

  • Anna’s Heart on Doctrine in Movies

    Anna’s Heart on… Doctrine in Movies What inspired me to write about doctrine is the fact that there are still a number of people that watch Christian movies for doctrinal truths and that is not where we typically find God’s truth. What is doctrine anyway?  Doctrine, according to the dictionary, is a belief or set of beliefs held and taught by a church, political party, or other group. Where do we, as Christians, derive those set of beliefs?  One...

  • Anna’s Heart on Constructive vs. Destructive Criticism in Movies

    Anna’s Heart on… Constructive vs. Destructive Criticism in Movies   What is criticism?  The expression of disapproval of someone or something based on perceived faults or mistakes. Criticism can also be the analysis and judgment of the merits and faults of a literary or artistic work. Both of these are accurate and no one really likes to be criticized, even if it’s constructive criticism.  Today I want to talk to you about HOW we criticize as Christians, especially in...

  • Anna’s Heart on Burden for Souls in Christian Movies

    Anna’s Heart on… Burden for Souls in Christian Movies I love people.  Maybe it’s because God loves everyone, who am I to discriminate?  God sees us at our full potential, in service to Him, even if most won’t follow Him. I know it’s hard to believe the God loves everyone because we live in a world full of sin, sickness, and suffering, but He really does and so should we, as Christians, love everyone else.  Each person we come...

  • Anna’s Heart on Children in Movies

    Anna’s Heart on… Children in Movies Some of you are going to think that this will be about how children shouldn’t be in movies of any kind, but that isn’t the case.  My real focus is how important children are and how impressionable they are and how we, as individuals, parents, teachers, and filmmakers, need to use much wisdom when working with children. I LOVE kids, all ages, all sizes, all colors.  So in reality, I love all people,...

  • Anna’s Heart on Grace in Christian Movies

    Anna’s Heart on… Grace in Christian Movies Grace = The free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings. Last week I shared a verse with my Scripture of the Day list that really spoke to me. II Corinthians 9:8 – And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work. Granting grace instead...

  • Anna’s Heart on Revival in Movies

    Anna’s Heart on… Revival in Movies Have you ever heard of the Great Awakening?  If you haven’t then check out the different revivals that took place in America and some spread to all over the world.  When I first learned about it I was so thrilled and began praying for the Final Great Awakening to begin happening here in America to usher in Jesus’ return. Prayer is awesome and even if you think your prayer life is perfect…do NOT...

  • Anna’s Heart on True Love in Movies

    Anna’s Heart on… True Love in Movies So…I used to be…a hopeless romantic and absolutely LOVED watching romantic movies.  Let’s be Honest.  The reason women love these kinds of movies, chick flicks, is because that is what we think we want in real life. Reality check…real men aren’t like the men we watch in movies, nor should they be.   Women should want men that work hard, that love God, that love them (with deeds, not necessarily with words).  We...

  • Anna’s Heart on Salvation in Movies

     Anna’s Heart on … Salvation in Movies I LOVE to see salvation in movies.  Some movies are meant for encouraging our faith, some are meant to bring someone to Jesus, and some are meant to do both.  CFDb exists for that reason…promoting Christian movies and working together to reach people for Jesus through Christian film. God wants EVERYONE to be saved.  II Timothy 2:4 – Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge...
