  • Reputable sources for movie reviews for parents, guardians, community leaders

    By Annelie on 02 July 2015 in with No Comments

    Reputable sources for movie reviews for parents, guardians, community leaders   June 30, 2015 10:57 AM MST Today it is more critical than ever that parents, guardians, and those in loco parentis carefully study reviews of movies for children and youths that address age-appropriateness before choosing what films the children under their supervision may see. Many movies are marketed as family films but in fact have violence, profanity, and adult situations that are not healthy or appropriate for children. Fortunately, there are more and more redemptive, appropriate family movies available. However, both appropriate and inappropriate “family” movies can be rated as PG or PG-13, which both cover a broad continuum of movies. The PG that stands for Parental Guidance...

  • What’s The Best Entertainment for Christians?

    By Annelie on 12 June 2015 in with No Comments

    What’s The Best Entertainment for Christians? By Lovemore Chikova June 11, 2015 I have often heard debates and sometimes participated in arguments on what type of entertainment is suitable for Christians.In one such debate, there was a young man who sounded so convinced that Christian life is boring because of lack of entertainment.

But being a Christian...

Those days are coming to a close, because studios have less and less margin for financial shortfalls.” OK, so we’re getting ahead of ourselves. This post was supposed to deepen your...

    By Annelie on 25 March 2015 in with No Comments

     ‘Do You Believe’ actress Madison Pettis doesn’t want to shed good-girl image Madison Pettis   By Brittany Valadez Published March 23, 2015 Fox News Latino Faith, it can move mountains. Last year, an independent, Christian film “God’s Not Dead” was made on a tiny film budget of $2 million. Critics heavily bashed the faith-based film, but ultimately, the movie won the fight, earning over $60 million by the year’s end. The box-office win certainly motivated the film’s production force to continue on the same path, with a follow up film, “God’s Not Dead 2” in the works. They also produced “Do You Believe?” – a film that intersects the lives of 12 people. Read More… See More Christian Film...

  • Why Are Christian Women Watching ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’?

    Why Are Christian Women Watching ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’?   (Photo: Facebook/Shane Idleman) Shane Idleman, founder and lead pastor of Westside Christian Fellowship in Lancaster, Calif. By Shane Idleman , CP Guest Contributor March 6, 2015|1:53 pm The unavoidable truth is that many Christians are becoming desensitized to popular culture with movies such as “Fifty Shades of Grey.” When the Holy Spirit no longer fills hearts and minds with a passion for purity and holiness, there is a general lack of conviction for turning away from impure thoughts and visions. This causes be to ask, “why are Christian women watching and reading Fifty Shades of Grey?” Compromise in this area can be well illustrated through a story that I...

    One-Third of Audience for Christian Books, Radio, TV, and Movies Is Unchurched   Image: Courtesy LifeWay Research LifeWay/NRB study examines whether Christian media is used for discipleship or evangelism. Ruth C. Moon –   Is Christian media a better tool for discipleship or evangelism? A new study released at the 2015 NRB convention examines just who exactly engages with Christian books, radio, TV, and movies. “Christian media delivers teaching, music, and entertainment to a predominantly Christian constituency,” said Ed Stetzer, executive director of LifeWay Research. “Not surprisingly, those who embrace Christian teaching will value and consume these the most.” However, approximately one-third of the audience for Christian media qualifies in LifeWay’s eyes as “unchurched.”...
