DUCK DYNASTY’s Sadie Robertson Has an Important Message for You!
By Diana Tyler, Contributing Writer
Psalm 8:2 says that God “[has] taught children and infants to tell of [His] strength.” DUCK DYNASTY’s Sadie Robertson seems to prove that Scripture true as, at just 17 years of age, she boldly and unapologetically proclaims her faith and trust in God whenever she can, no matter who’s watching.
The “Dancing with the Stars” runner-up’s latest pulpit, if you will, was her own bedroom, where, while wearing pajamas and not a stitch of makeup, she encouraged people to stop comparing themselves to others and to look to God to reach their goals.
Millions of people today have found social media to be a remarkable tool for ...

Hollywood and the Environmentalist Movement:
Eco-Fanatic Movies Have a Mixed History at the Box Office
By Dr. Ted Baehr, Publisher, and Dr. Tom Snyder, Editor
Like other misguided ideologues, some in Hollywood have adopted the environmentalist or ecology movement to support their efforts to support big government.
Their efforts paid off in 2006 and 2007 when Al Gore’s factually challenged, hysterical rallying cry for global warming, AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH, earned a fair amount of money, at least for a documentary, and won a couple Oscars.
AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH came out the same year as the pro-environmentalist cartoon HAPPY FEET, which raked in $384.3 million worldwide at the box office.

Revisionist History and Myth Conceptions
By Dr. Ted Baehr, Publisher
Recently, a brilliant astrophysicist said he couldn’t understand why some Muslims had become so violent, reacting to the beheadings in Iraq, Syria, Tunisia, Libya, Kenya, and, of course, many more. His perplexity seems to reflect many statements coming out of Washington and the best colleges and universities today.
The fact of the matter is, Mohammed, the founder of Islam, was a military commander as well as a religious leader who urged, as reported in the Quran and Hadith, Muslims from their inception to kill, rape, pillage, and plunder anyone who isn’t Muslim, in the interest of abolishing all other faiths, especially Judaism and Christianity.

Understanding Christian Movie Box Office
By Ted Baehr, with David Outten
Some people think DO YOU BELIEVE? is a better movie than GOD’S NOT DEAD. It had more actors with recognizable names and it had higher production values. There is much good to be said about the movie, but it will not come close to the same box office success.
Pure Flix is left to ponder why?
Pure Flix took a huge risk major studios rarely take. It tried to tell several stories at once and tie them together at the end. Rare is the movie that can pull this off. GOD’S NOT DEAD had several stories, but the clear heart of the movie was obvious in the title: the confrontation between a student and his professor. The clear ending to that story was that the prof...

You Can Trust the Easter Story!
By Tom Snyder, Ph.D.
The first number one movie at the box office last March was SON OF GOD, which was developed from the last part of the History Channel's blockbuster miniseries in 2013, THE BIBLE.
The movie tells the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, including the story of His death and resurrection, as told in the New Testament documents, especially the Gospel of John.
The question arises, however:
Can you trust what the Bible says about the crucifixion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ in the Passover, Good Friday and Easter stories in the Bible?
Top scholars, historians, and experts have repeatedly confirmed that the Bible is the most historically and intellectually reliable anci...
Warner Bros. Finds Their Apostle Paul for New Faith Based Project
According to some major publications, Warner Bros. has signed none other than Hugh Jackman to play the Apostle Paul in a faith project with Ben Affleck and Matt Damon as producers. Though no director has been chosen, Matt Cook is set to write the screenplay. Hugh Jackman of course is best known for playing the Wolverine in the X-MEN series, but he’s also no stranger to faith content as he portrayed Jean Valjean in the Movieguide® Award winning movie LES MISERABLES back in 2012. Additionally, Hugh Jackman is likely familiar with the source material after growing up in a Christian home when his father was converted to Christianity at a Billy Graham crusade.
