  • Why Some Parents Say Christians Should Watch Disney’s Beauty and the Beast

    By Desiree on 21 March 2017 in with No Comments

    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. We need to know how to live in it and interact with it,” she says. Instead of ignoring...

    By Desiree on 15 March 2017 in with No Comments

    By Jeannie Law | Mar 12, 2017 Country music singer Tim McGraw who stars in “The Shack” is speaking out on the controversy surrounding Octavia Spencer’s role as God in the movie. “The Shack” hit theaters last weekend and exceeded box office expectations for its premier release. Although it was one of the best openings for a faith-based film, some in the Christian community are speaking out against the film for its “heretical” portrayal of the Holy Trinity. “The Shack” is based on The New York Times best-selling novel of the same name and as the film’s synopsis says, the cinematic journey takes viewers on a “father’s uplifting spiritual journey.” *** Speaking to Know News about how he would answer someone who questioned...

  • A Voice for the Voiceless: Pro-life Film Highlights Power of the Average Person

    By Desiree on 09 March 2017 in with No Comments

      Ben Kennedy | 07 March, 2017 WASHINGTON — “Voiceless,” a new pro-life film, debuted Tuesday on DVD. 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...

  • ‘Jesus’ and the Oscars

    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...

  • Alvin and the Chipmunks, Sir-Mix-A-Lot, and the dire need for faith-based animated movies

    By Annelie on 01 May 2016 in with No Comments

    Alvin and the Chipmunks, Sir-Mix-A-Lot, and the dire need for faith-based animated movies by Michael Foust | 29 April, 2016 FRANKLIN, Tenn. (Christian Examiner) – Digital marketer Ash Greyson spends a lot of his time thinking about movies and working to promote them, but even he grows tired of taking his children to watch supposedly “family films” that turn out to be anything but fully kid-friendly. Take, for instance, the 2015 PG film “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip,” in which Theodore sings and dances to the sexually suggestive Sir-Mix-A-Lot song “Baby Got Back.” Most of the movie was innocent enough, but he and other parents were left wondering: Why was that in there? For the Rest of...
