Christian based movies

Recommended Posts




It's a shame there are so many supposed Christian movies out there that are not. I don't remember the name of the movie I saw a year or so ago but it was billed as a Christian movie. I watched the entire movie waiting for the Christian aspect. I kept expecting one of the main charactors to somehow come to Christ or for one of them to suddenly remember they were supposed to be a Christian, but there was nothing. The movie mostly revolved around some sports, and boy and girl that kinda liked one another and some trouble makers at their school. No Gospel, no one proclaiming to be Christian, no hint of anything Christian. I still have no idea how that movie was categorized as Christian.



Was the movie called "Saved" ? I saw that and I'm pretty sure it was a spoof meant to be anti-Christian. I too thought it was going to be a Christian movie.

As for "To Save A Life" the main character did get lead to Christ and had to defend his faith to his friends and family. He lead his girlfriend to the church. It also had the Christian theme of not getting an abortion. Instead they gave the baby to a Christian family in the church who couldn't have children. There was drinking and intimate relations, but I think that was to set the scene to show how wayward the main character was so that later on when he was saved they could show how he had changed and how Christ was in his life. I do agree though that they should have had scriptures in there since it's a Christian movie, having the scriptures to lead somebody to Christ would have been good. Perhaps not a movie one lets their children watch with the parties and intimate relations at the start. Otherwise I liked it.

I disagree with your assessment that Jake became a Christian.

I just watched the movie again, and the gospel is not preached once before Jake is baptized in the ocean. Scripture declares that faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God. Yet, in all the scenes prior to Jake's baptism, there is not one iota of Scripture given. He did not hear the gospel message, therefore, he could not have been saved.


Even after his baptism, he refers going to Church and reading the Bible as "cr*p."

No, he didn't become a Christian. He joined a new age church group that likes drinking cokes through dirty socks. Edited by Standing Firm In Christ

Just watched "RUST", (2010).

A minister leaves the Church after losing his faith. His personal investigation of the death of a family in a house fire is instrumental in bringing him back to faith.

Although this movie is listed as a Christian movie, the Gospel is not mentioned once. It is a family friendly movie with no cursing in it.

Check out the movie:

Haichi: A Dog's Tale

Based on a true story of an incredibly loyal dog. Some lessons could probably be learned by Christians from this movie even though it really isn't a Christian movie. It's rated G. I didn't find anything in it objectional. It reminded me a little of a book I read years ago by a preacher named "Fighting Bob" Shuler. Not the Crystal Cathedral Robert Shuler but a different preacher. The book was entitled, "Some Dogs I Have Known." About how beleivers could a thing or two from dogs. Very good.

I agree, it's a great movie. We watched it this past week. And I cried. I've been wanting a puppy, and that just made it worse. :icon_mrgreen:

Fighting Bob Shuler was a fantastic preacher! He preached often at our church and we dearly loved him. I've never read the book, but I'm sure it's good. He had some fascinating stories to tell!

Just watched "Behind the Sun" (1995).

A former muslim who converted to Christianity returns to his homeland to visit his family in hopes of sharing his faith with them.

Excellent movie!

Oh, yes! We got that movie a few years back. It is great. I loaned our copy and haven't gotten it back yet... :o

Just watched "The Perfect Stranger" (1994). A skeptical woman has dinner with Jesus Christ.

Fro the most part, I found this movie interesting, except for the fact that the woman and Jesus Christ shared a bottle of wine together during their conversation. A bottle of wine between two people over a few hours would have them both smashed.

My Jesus is not alcoholic, nor would He give alcoholic wine to someone else.

Just finished watching 2 movies.

The First Stone (1993) A homeless man takes on a job as a janitor at a Church and then is given the job as youth leader. Parents of the youth demand his resignation because of he unorthodox methods of teaching the youth. Good storyline, but did not end as I expected it to.

C,H. Spurgeon Tonight (1990) Dr Craig Skinner recites from memory one of Spurgeon's sermons. I was especially impressed with the fact that, although Spurgeon was Calvinistic, his message was devoid of Calvinistic teachings known as TULIP. In the sermon, Spurgeon challenged the congregation to "Look unto Jesus," and to "suppose Him to be the gardener." Powerful sermon.

I watched In The Blink of An Eye the other night. I thought it was pretty good. End times themed movie about a detective and his wife on a vacation that turns into a nightmare.

Here is a preview I found on youtube


David and Andrea White did an awesome job in that movie! Edited by Standing Firm In Christ

Last night, my wife and I watched the movie "David" from TNT's "The Bible Collection."

Although the movie was quite lengthy (3:01) we both found it to be a great movie.


How biblically accurate is the movie?

I don't recall the actual title, but one night I noticed a movie on about David and watched some of it but the movie was so far from what the Bible put forth that I could even watch it.

About 75 to 80% accurate. Some hollywood flavor was added in.

The movie "Jacob" was about 75 to 80% accurate also.

(We are expecting to get "Joseph' and "Samson and Delilah" from "The Bible Collection this week, and "Moses" at a later date. Edited by Standing Firm In Christ
