Does anyone like to watch Christian movies like Facing the Giants, Fireproof, and Courageous?
I have watched Facing the Giants and I think it is a good film. It is inspiring. Watching Christian Films doesn't really bother me even if I am not really a follower of its teachings(though I am a born Christian).
I hate to say it, but things that happen to be deliberately noted as Christian tend to turn me off. I mean it's one thing to have a religious flavor, but making all about Christianity does nothing for me.
I have seen Fireproof because we know a couple that loved it and wanted us to see it. Another Christian series I would love to see is the Left Behind movies. I've heard they are really good.
I saw Facing the Giants, and I knew it was a Christian movie. I am not really aware that there are such things. Where can I find list of Christian movies? I would like to watch them. My husband and I are Bible believing Christians.
The Passion of Christ was one Christian movie that hit me hard in the heart. What about the Blind Side? Could it be considered a Christian movie or just an inspirational movie?
I did not even know that there were Christian movies, per se. Interesting. I will look into it. I have been into Bollywood movies lately and Korean sub-titled movies. I could add that to the list...so long as it is not too exclusive...I like inclusive movies. Worth giving it a shot. Cool share, cheers. Must be good movies cause you look very happy in your profile picture (-:...or your avatar.
I don't, actually, I don't like their didactic character. But because I like some of the christian music of Michael W. Smith, I watched a film with him called "Second Chance". Not bad.
I saw Facing the Giants, which espouses the views by mainstream Christians about how God works in mysterious ways. It is about a Christian football coach who is facing almost insurmountable odds in beating the opposing team in the movie. His wife desperately wants a baby, but they have been told that she cannot conceive. I also watched Passion of the Christ and got a real education into how viciously Jesus was beaten and treated. He was beaten so badly that he was unrecognizable as a human being when He got hung on the cross.
I'm not sure about this "educational" value. It's history, it's an imagination, it's exagerated by the spectacular film effects. But true is, that was the only film I cried in the cinema at. I was alone and I didn't even want any companion. People, young guys next to me cried too. It was a tough film, indeed.
When I view Christian movies, I don't really view them as Christian films. Except the Passion of the Christ, and that terrified my children to no end. I like some Christian movies, but it's more so for the historical side it poses. I'm a history nut, so historical movies hit a certain chord with me, be it Christian movies, Holocaust movies, revolution movies, whatever, I like em.
