My wife and I have been on a summer movie theme. In the past we have done John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, and others. But, this summer the theme is religious movies. We have watched Alex Kendrick's Courageous and Fireproof. Both movies are average and you could say a little "hokey" but the message in both is really outstanding. Courageous is about men making a pact to their wives and families to be faithful fathers and role models. Moreover, to be involved in their families' lives. In the movie Fireproof a couple is in trouble and heading for divorce when the husband takes a 40 day challenge and finds the Lord. It hits topics such as pornography, infidelity, and honoring the marriage commitment before God as a covenant.
I applaud Kendrick on making movies on these two topics and I look forward to watching Infusion and Facing the Giants. There are other great movies that are Christian that we are looking forward to watch as well. It is very important for the salvation of the family that these movies be watched particularly by Men and Fathers. Give them a try and your faith will be elevated.
Dear Lord, thank you for Alex Kendrick for having the foresight to create these great movies and for all of the people who are making Christian Movies a vehicle for doing your work.
I promise to balance my movie watching and include Christian movies on a more regular basis.
