Christian movies I've seen

by viraleksa | created - 10 Jan 2015 | updated - 6 months ago | Public

Some of these movies aren't exactly just Christian movies and might even have some aspects in them that aren't Christian at all but I put them here because they have something in them that speaks to me as a Christian. Like keeping the last Bible on Earth safe in The Book of Eli. Or the way the Christian family helped the young man in The Blind Side. How the nun showed God's love to a condemned man who didn't deserve it in Dead Man Walking. Or how Christ dying for our sins is described in Chronicles of Narnia The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. Even though there's some parts in some of them that I don't agree with I still think they belong to this list because they touched my heart. After all these movies are made by people who are all flawed so the products of flawed people are flawed as well. But even in their imperfection God used some of these movies to speak to me and teach me something about him or people. A few of them I don't like at all because they are just some persons imagination and not necessarily accurate. But even though I wouldn't recommend them to anyone I watched them so they stay on the list of movies with Christian topics that I've watched.
