    By Desiree on 04 October 2017 in with No Comments

    By Alesia Hill | September 29, 2017 A film hitting theaters Oct. 6 is being described by its creators as a “Hard Faith” film. This edgier genre, according to the team behind “Generational Sins,” is about not playing “within the constraints of Christian movie-making.” In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter  Spencer Folmar, the film’s director, said, “If we tell stories of adults struggling with faith, adults will run toward them, so we’re working hard on creating this new genre.” Thurman Mason, the film’s executive producer, told the Hollywood Reporter the movie included controversial things like cursing, as well as references to child abuse and alcoholism. “We live in an R-rated world, and covering up the darkness won’t bring it into the light,” he said.

  • Say Goodbye to ‘Faith-Based’ Films?

    By Desiree on 13 May 2017 in with No Comments

    By Lorie Johnson | May 10, 2017 It may sound strange, but the producers of movies that are centered around faith don’t want them to be described that way. They say the “faith-based” label has got to go. …Joseph agreed, adding that while the “faith-based” label might attract some viewers, it’s a turn-off to many potential moviegoers. “The term scares away both the marginally religious and the irreligious, and it’s a signal to them that the story is going to be preachy and overbearing,” he said. In 2016, there were a handful of movies centered around faith that were box office hits. “Miracles From Heaven” and “God’s Not Dead 2” were two faith-based films that did very well at the...

    CBN News |19 March, 2017 When Disney announced it would feature an “exclusively gay moment” in its new “Beauty and the Beast” remake, Christians everywhere vowed to boycott the movie. Despite the backlash, some Christians say parents should think twice about prohibiting their children from seeing the film. One of those parents is Sarah Wallace, a blogger for The Gospel Centered Mom, and mother of four. She says the movie gives parents the opportunity to teach their children how to interract with a world that loves sin. “This is the culture God has appointed for us to raise our children in.

The film tells the story of Jesse Dean, a war veteran turned community outreach leader who puts his life on the line to stand up against an abortion clinic near his church. “‘Voiceless’ is about him and how he handles that issue and at the same time how he lays down his life and really puts everything on the line to take a stand,” explained “Voiceless” director, writer and producer Pat Necerato. Dean takes that stand in hopes of shutting down the abortion clinic, which could get him fired or even land him in jail. “Every Christian can make a difference for...

    By Desiree on 03 March 2017 in with No Comments

    By Jerry Newcombe | 02 March, 2017 …is there evidence that God is at work in the cinema? There certainly are a growing number of Christian-based movies popping up in movie theatres. Most of these are independently produced and independently released. Meanwhile, the most-watched film of all time is based directly on the Gospel of Luke — more on that in just a moment. Just last week, the number one movie in the U.S. for one night (2/23) was a documentary shown in select theatres across the country called, “Is Genesis History?” I wrote about this movie a couple of weeks ago. It provides scientific evidence that the paradigm in Genesis of creation, fall, and a world-wide flood explains the fossil and...
