  • 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?

  • What is Going on with Faith-Based Films?

    By Annelie on 29 March 2016 in with No Comments

    What is Going on with Faith-Based Films? March 18, 2016 – Trey Reynolds Faith-based movies are no longer a niche market. Hollywood studios, executives and distribution companies recognize if you make a film that appeals to the Christian audience, they will show up. Did you know on average it takes 10 years for a movie to get developed, produced and distributed to theaters? Since the success of “The Passion of the Christ” in 2004, it has taken about 10 years for multiple faith-based films to make it to the silver screen. In 2014, there were 19 faith-based films released in theaters with notable successes such as “God’s Not Dead”, “Son of God” and “Heaven is for Real”. Christians made...

  • Early church welcomed persecution because it led to growth

    By Annelie on 21 March 2016 in with No Comments

    Early church welcomed persecution because it led to growth Kyle Hooks Posted: March 18, 2016 I went with some friends to see the latest Christian movie in the theaters the other night. We sat in an air-conditioned building in large, comfortable, reclining chairs and watched a high-definition projected display while our brothers and sisters in other parts of the world sat in jail cells and torture chambers, or at least on a dirt floor hoping police don’t discover their church gathering. It strikes me as odd that in a country where movies appealing to “Christians” are cranked out several times a year, churches still struggle to grow. We’ve all heard the statistics about how Christianity is on the decline...

Critics say such films take too many liberties and miss the larger point of the Gospel. (Associated Press) By Bradford Richardson – The Washington Times – Thursday, March 17, 2016 Some Christians are asking themselves, what doth it profit a man to gain Hollywood but lose his own soul? Friday’s release of “Miracles From Heaven” is the latest in a trendy genre of faith-based films that critics compare to the proselytizing of the prosperity gospel.  In telling the story of a young, terminally...
