MOVIEGUIDE(r): Faith in Action
By Peter Moorman
Christians everywhere are praying for revival within the movie industry, and for right reason. Hollywood shapes the culture that shapes the minds of our children, but in addition to prayer we need to take action.
James 2:14-17 says, “What use is it, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works? Can that faith save him? …Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself.”
MOVIEGUIDE(r) is the “work” coupled with the faith of believing Christians across America and across the world.
MOVIEGUIDE(r) started in 1985 when only 1 movie had positive Christian content.
Now, after 25 years of faith, prayer and action, over 66% of movies have positive Christian content!
But, it wasn’t an easy road!
Thanks to the prayer and financial support of friends across the world, we are able to take action in Hollywood for Christ and His Kingdom.
This action includes our Annual MOVIEGUIDE(r) Awards Gala and Report to the Entertainment Industry where we give out $250,000 in prize money to faith-friendly movies.
We review 100% of movies that come out in 9 theaters or more, and help families choose the true, the good and the beautiful.
We meet weekly with movie studio heads, scriptwriters and producers and show them through our Annual Report to the Entertainment Industry that movies with strong Christian content make more money at the Box Office.
We hold quarterly HOW TO SUCCEED IN HOLLYWOOD (WITHOUT LOSING YOUR SOUL) scriptwriting classes to teach aspiring moviemakers the craft of telling stories.
We teach media wisdom around the world in Russia, India, Greece, South Korea, and Europe.
Just this year we saw several major victories like the cancellations of the faith bashing Good Christian Bitc**s and the pornography promoting Playboy Club.
All of these “works” are bathed in prayer, and we are truly seeing change in Hollywood.
