    The Popularity of Christian Movies Is Inspiring Future Faith-Based Flicks

    PI ladies, I know many of you enjoy Christian films and wish there were more of them. Well, you’ll be really excited about this news!

    Denver pastor and author (of 27 books!) Sun Hui East is introducing Strong Foundation Films, a film production company devoted to faith-based movies. Her desire is to offer “visual sermons” for both Christians and non-Christians alike.

    I’m not familiar with this pastor or her work, but I’m always excited when someone uses their talent to glorify God. Following is a sneak peek of the soon-to-be-released movie The Prophet’s Son.

    Strong Foundation Films was founded for one purpose–to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to the world through the media of film. Strong Foundation Films is a Christian film-maker devoted to making movies that glorify God and bring clear understanding of the Gospel to its audiences. This company was ‘birthed’ in prayer and is focused on following the Lord’s leading. Our movies are stories that all people can relate to…ones that show life’s struggles and pain, yet bring solutions, hope and encouragement (Strong Foundation Films Mission).

    The intention of Strong Foundation Films is to make movies that inspire people to find and maintain true relationships with God. As you may know, faith-based movies are becoming increasingly popular. Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ was a sensational hit, even without the backing of Hollywood. We’ve also seen numerous successes with Courageous, Soul Surfer, and more recently, October Baby.

    What does this mean? In my opinion, it means viewers are desperate for wholesome movies that tell inspirational stories.

    These days, the majority of Hollywood shows and movies are drenched in promiscuity and unnecessary violence.

    I believe we all need more faith-based movies because they instill goodness and offer positive ways to deal with adversity. Christian movies glorify God and direct us to follow Him. I honestly believe movies and television shows have such an influence on their viewers. And because the majority of movies today reflect bad behavior, society is slowly deteriorating and become desensitized to violence and sex.

    I also believe people have had enough. Maybe they recognize Hollywood is dragging them down the wrong path, or maybe they’re just tired of all the violence and sex. And as a result, they’re yearning for what’s good and right, and flocking to these Christian movies. And I too welcome it with open arms. I look forward to the movies that will come from this and other production companies that strive to glorify God.

    PI ladies, you asked for more Christian movies and your prayers have been answered. If we want more goodness to come from Hollywood, then we must demand it. We must turn away from the movies that do nothing but offer unnecessary bad behavior, and we must show support for the wholesome movies that guide us toward all that is good and glorifies God.

    Strong Foundation Films is going to shake the film industry by telling stories that help people understand eternal principles found in the Bible (Pastor Sun Hui East).

    I pray Strong Foundation Films never loses sight of its desire to glorify God in every movie it produces. May its movies bring viewers closer to Christ. And I pray also that more filmmakers stand up for Christ with their art. I ask this in Jesus’ name.

    Ladies, are you always looking for more Christian movies to watch?
