FILMS FOR VIEWING

INTRODUCTION

Would it not be wonderful to turn on your television, or see films, without fear of profanity, vulgarity, or nudity?  One may see or hear graphic illustrations of all these in our present day environment.   The ungodly has dedicated their own ideals of entertainment to be created and many have allowed such entertainment to come into their lives.  This has helped rob America, and other once godly nations, of morals and their Christian heritage.

FILMS FOR VIEWING
DESENSITIZED AND IMMUNE

Unfortunately many are becoming desensitized or immune to certain language structure, immoral portrayals, and nudity on the screen; viewing films of questionable content with little conviction or shame.  Scripture does not condone the behavioral habits that many have allowed to penetrate their life.

I am thankful for those who seek to identify with good moral values.  Television, and films of the past, had good moral values but tolerance towards profanity, vulgarity, and nudity has become more acceptable, to the public at large, encouraging movies to be made that bear little or no moral value.

RECOMMENDED FILMS

Listed below are recommended films that I have personally viewed.  Not all are strictly Christian movies but are of a good moral nature.  I receive no personal gain from these recommendations other than to see good movies of value placed in the hands of those who are seeking to break free from movies that promote the wrong message.
