Did God Time the Release of WAR ROOM?
Bill Cosby, Stephen Collins and now Josh Duggar have been exposed for sexual immorality. Each presented themselves as stellar family men on television.
The worst horrors of Planned Parenthood are now on video on the Internet.
The 38 million strong adultery arrangement website Ashley Madison has been hacked and adulterers exposed.
A Barna survey conducted for Proven Men Ministries has found that 63 percent of self-professing Christian men look at pornography at least monthly (19 percent at least once a day).
It’s as if the media is asking, “What have you done? What will you do about it?”
On August 28 the Kendrick Brothers’ new movie WAR ROOM provides an answer. The mo...
Celebrities Against Planned Parenthood
Lyndee Fletcher, Contributing Writer
Planned Parenthood is under investigation for illegally selling the bodies of aborted babies for profit. A pro-life activist group went undercover as a biogenics company and exposed horrific videos on Youtube. Top executives from Planned Parenthood talked about specifics people wanted like livers and lungs and even admitted to performing illegal partial birth abortions to be able to “harvest” the desired parts. One of the executives openly talks about this in horrific detail while casually sipping wine at lunch and mentions that each “specimen,” that being an unborn or partially birthed baby, goes for around one hundred dollars.
5 Things You Need to Know About the Movie CAPTIVE
By Jonny Zachary
This fall, a movie is coming to the theaters that so blatantly proclaims the Gospel that its tagline is, “Faith. Redemption. Survival.” The movie is called CAPTIVE, and it stars David Oyelowo (SELMA) and Kate Mara (FANTASTIC FOUR). The movie is a true story about Brian Nichols, an escaped convict who goes on a shooting rampage during a court case and kidnaps and holds a young woman, Ashley Smith, as a hostage. He detains her for seven hours and during that time, she convinces him to let her live by reading Nichols portions of The Purpose Driven Life, inspiring him to search for redemption. CAPTIVE hits theaters worldwide on September 18, 2015.

“Be Fruitful and Multiply”:
Movies that Build Faith and Family
By Dr. Ted Baehr, Publisher
Movie after movie today portrays mothers, fathers, grandmothers, grandfathers, and children as either dysfunctional, wicked or evil. VACATION, SINISTER 2 and THE VISIT are just a few examples.
This popular perception in movies and television is carried through with so-called studies claiming that marriage doesn’t make you happy, children don’t make you happy, and people want to be bisexual because they are confused by the media induced lust of the eyes and the lust of the flesh. Some close friends have been influenced by these studies.
On the other had, God says:
“Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.”
WAR ROOM and CINDERELLA vs. IMPASTOR
It is so exciting that in 2015 Christian audiences have movies to see like DO YOU BELIEVE?, WAR ROOM and CAPTIVE. There have even been some wonderful family movies like PADDINGTON, CINDERELLA and INSIDE OUT. In profound ways, you can see the impact MOVIEGUIDE® has had in showing Hollywood that there is a big audience for content with strong faith and values.
Sadly, this is not the entire story. There are still those who despise Christianity and have a strong desire to mock Christians and morality. The latest example of this is a program on the TV Land network titled IMPASTOR. The premise is that an immoral con-man takes on the identity of a gay pastor of a Lutheran church in a small town...
LORD OF THE RINGS Actor Speaks Out on the Persecution of Christians
By Diana Tyler
"We have lost our moral compass completely, and, unless we find it, we’re going to lose our civilization.”
The impassioned statement above could very well belong in one of the most beloved epics of all time, THE LORD OF THE RINGS, but in fact, it was spoken not by one of the film’s characters, but by one of its actors.
John Rhys-Davies, who played an axe-wielding dwarf warrior named Gimli in the THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy, spoke candidly on Adam Carolla’s podcast last week on the ever compelling and ever arguable subject of good and evil.
“There is an extraordinary silence in the West,” said the Welsh actor on Carolla’s podcas...
Comprehensive Approach Needed to Provide Security in Theaters and Public Places
By Dr. Diane Howard, Contributing Writer
The subject of guns in movie theaters has been much in the news recently. It has even been a topic in the Republican debates, in the context of gun-free zones.
Research suggests that the issue of guns in theaters is a complex, multi-faceted one that must take a comprehensive approach. Some of the factors in this complex maze can be aligned in a series of correlations that involve the following issues: psychological boundaries for children as their brains develop; parental supervision; comprehensive care of the mentally ill; close supervision of drug use (prescribed and street drugs); supervision of alcohol use; p...
Don’t Look at the Outward Appearance, Look at the Heart
By Mary Driscoll, Contributing Writer
When I was a child my mother used to tell us about the end times. She talked as if they were coming in our lifetime. “The world will be so bad, Christians will have to run for the hills.” she would say. As I grew into a teenager, I began to think of this story as another “Scottish” bedtime story. If you understand Scottish culture, you’ll understand what I mean (think BRAVEHEART!) But, are we in the end times? Now, I have to wonder.
A few days ago a dear Reverend and mentor posted scripture on Facebook. This reading, Samuel 16:7 catapulted me into great thought. “But the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Do not consider his appearance,...
Sing it Loud, Sing it Proud:
Sing It America, Sing to Preserve the Star Spangled Banner!
By Selena Owens, Contributing Writer
Some things come our way in life that cannot be repeated. Ever.
On September 14, 2015, one such opportunity exists that strongly encourages Americans to show up to sing the Star Spangled Banner with a profound new awareness during a once-in-a-lifetime-event: “From Dawn’s Early Light to Dawn’s Early Light” at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.
Last year, the Star Spangled Banner celebrated its 200th birthday. Baltimore celebrated with a beautiful display, and other groups as well as churches participated in a national televised event “Star Spangled Sunday.” Beyond that, the celebrati...
