What’s Your Worldview?
What’s Your Worldview?
May 19, 2016

By Dr. Tom Snyder with Dr. Ted Baehr Everyone has a worldview by which they live, whether they know it consciously or not. Worldviews Explained What is a worldview? According to Norman Geisler and William D. Watkins in Worlds Apart: A Handbook of World Views, a worldview is “a way of viewing or interpreting all of reality.” Later, they add that a worldview provides “an interpretive framework through which or by which one makes sense out of the data of life and the world.” As such, all comprehensive worldviews seem to share at least five things: 1) they have a cosmology, a view of the “physical” or “material” universe; 2) they have a metaphysics, a view of what might or might not exist beyond the universe; 3) they hav...
 

 
The Secret to Getting Your Movie Funded in Hollywood
The Secret to Getting Your Movie Funded in Hollywood
May 19, 2016

By Michael S. Emerson Editor’s Note:  Award winning writer, producer and director Michael S. Emerson provides a candid, eye-opening view of his quest to fund his new film.   While recently enjoying tea with Dr. Baehr, I was discussing the many false leads and dark alleys I had to venture down before finding the needed funding (fifteen million dollars) for my next film. After hearing of my many “adventures” into the world of film finance, Dr. Baehr suggested I put my experiences in written form in hopes of saving other Producers and would-be Producers seeking that same elusive animal (funding) from making many of the same mistakes I did. First, some background on me.  I have been in the entertainment industry for ove...
 

 
Captain America:  Civil War and the Current State of American Politics
Captain America: Civil War and the Current State of American Politics
May 18, 2016

By Bradley Hobart, Contributing Writer, with Tom Snyder, Editor Every four years in the United States of America, we have a time of great contention and debate: the Presidential election. Throughout the year, politicians from both parties argue and debate about the best way to run our country. These discussions turn into heated arguments very quickly. While, typically, physical and violent fights do not break out, the war of words can get very nasty and ugly. This election year is especially important, as one side tries to continue advancing their beliefs about how to run the country, while the other side tries to stop the tide from continuing for the next 4-8 years. As a great commentary on this election year, Marvel released CAPT...

Behind the Scenes of THE ABOLITIONISTS By Evy Baehr, Executive Managing Editor Most people may not realize that slavery is a current problem, with 27 million people enslaved in human trafficking right now, two million of which are just children.

Sextortion Kills Teens
Sextortion Kills Teens
May 12, 2016

By Mike McManus In 2010 Amanda Todd, 13, agreed to show her breasts during a video chat on the web.  The recipient then sent her a Facebook message demanding more or else.  When she refused to cooperate, her tormentor shipped a photo of her breasts to all of her Facebook friends. She was ridiculed and so embarrassed that she changed schools.  She became anxious and depressed. In 2012 she posted a video about her predicament, saying, “I have nobody. I need someone.” A month later she committed suicide. Six months ago, Dutch police arrested Aydin Coban, 35, and accused him of extorting Amanda and dozens of other girls, as well as adult men in Canada, the U.S. and Netherlands. The Washington Post reported Amanda’s story th...
 

 
Why Elsa in FROZEN Doesn’t Need a Girlfriend
Why Elsa in FROZEN Doesn’t Need a Girlfriend
May 10, 2016

By Ben Kayser, Managing Editor This past week, a hashtag surfaced on Twitter suggesting that Disney make the popular character from Disney’s Animated movie FROZEN a lesbian. The campaign #GiveElsaAGirlfriend caught fire, with many fans hypothesizing that the hit song “Let It Go” is some LGBT anthem. Movieguide® addressed these theories in the past stating, “Despite its popularity and Oscar award for Best Song of 2013, “Let It Go” only represents one part of the story, the major turning point where Elsa rejects her sister and isolates herself from the kingdom of Arendelle, which Elsa has trapped in an eternal winter. In the rest of the movie, Elsa must learn how to control her powers for the benefit of others. Also, both s...
 

 
The Outrage Culture, Christianity and the Battle for Freedom of Speech and Conscience
The Outrage Culture, Christianity and the Battle for Freedom of Speech and Conscience
May 09, 2016

The Outrage Culture, Christianity and the Battle for Freedom of Speech and Conscience By Michael Anderson "If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter." George Washington, March 15, 1783 It is nearly impossible to read the headlines today without being confronted with the increasing hyper-sensitivity of America and the outrage culture it has engendered. College campuses are at the vortex of this phenomenon; it is a tall task to keep abreast of all the instances of “disinvited” commencement speakers and banned speakers, impeached student government officers, and fired professors, let alone the countless students dragged before disciplinary panels. All of these accused off...
 

 
Do Movies Lead You to Rome or Jerusalem?
Do Movies Lead You to Rome or Jerusalem?
May 05, 2016

By Trey Reynolds, Contributing Writer Back in film school I remember a particular class when we were discussing what makes art “Christian” art?  Is it because the painting or the music or the movie was made by a Christian?  Is it because the end product is packaged, distributed and sold to churches or the public from Christian institutions?  What is “Christian” art and in our case what is a “Christian” movie?  Interesting question. . . I believe a reasonable answer is that something that is deemed “Christian” is similar to how we deem something that is “holy.”  The definition of holy is something dedicated or consecrated to God for a sacred purpose.  Therefore, for our discussion, a movie that is deemed “C...
