    If anyone would like to know any titles of any Christian films on Netflix,here are a couple of fairly new ones that are currently available.
    Camp Harlow (New! Great for Teens, about a bully in high school )
    The Sixth Inn of Happiness( Classic Film:Wonderful true story about a missionary)
    Revelation Road 1&2 (End times Thriller Action Packed!)
    Running Inside Out (Great for teens and young adults or any age)
    Unstoppable (New! Christian Doc. With Kirk Cameron)

    Just to name a few. As a Christian I believe we have to go beyond just entertainment.I find that Christian movies keep me satisfied and God centered. When I have found that regular movies oftentimes do the opposite and keep you wanting more or feeling empty. Christian films though few are always more uplifting and deep. If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. (Colossians 3:1)

    I just started watching Once Upon a time, and although I liked it very much, multiple people are sleeping around and having affairs. And the show doesn’t make it look like such a bad thing. I was just wondering how to reconcile watching it with my Christian world view.

    Yes I’m so glad you posted Once Upon a Time! It’s the first show I’ve actually really liked in a long time! I’ve always loved the Disney fairytales and seeing them come to life is too cool!

    I love Doctor Who, however I was slightly shocked that you posted about it if you know nothing about it. Because if you have even watched one episode you would know never to abrivate Doctor because it is a name

    OMG! Emma is the best, it made me cry!

    Holes, Hunger Games, and Doctor Who are great! I’ve never seen the others.

    Doctor Who is cool and fantastic! I love Emma, as well. Once Upon A Time was good at the beginning, but it got really complicated so I don’t watch it anymore.

    13 going on 30 is a good movie…Ferris Bueller’s is a really good one too. And of course the Hunger games is good, but I’ve seen it a million times, plus it’s not a happy movie. 🙂
