Top 30 Christian Movies Of All Time. Best Jesus Films Ever!
I have compiled a little list of the best Christian movies of all time. Of course this is JUST my opinion, but I believe you will like them all immensely. These top movies deal with various themes, but one thing they all do is glorify Jesus and edify the church.
There are many good Christian movies out there, stop giving money to secular movies that are filled with curse words, blasphemy, liberal indoctrination, sex, etc. In other words, popular movies at theatres are filled with nothing but; the world, the flesh, and the devil.
"For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world," 1 John 2:16.
It seems like most godless and ant-Christian directors, executives, producers, and script writers made an unholy pact to not make a movie unless somebody curses God's name in it. You as a child of God should not be giving your money to something as evil and blasphemous as these godless and anti-Christian movies with no redeeming value whatsoever.
"I will sing of mercy and justice; to You, O Lord, I will sing praises. I will behave wisely in a perfect way. Oh, when will You come to me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart. I will set nothing wicked before my eyes; I hate the work of those who fall away; It shall not cling to me. A perverse heart shall depart from me; I will not know wickedness," Psalm 101:1-4.

I had never heard of Peter Marshall. After being brought to tears by this movie, I had to have a copy for myself. This movie is not just the story of Peter Marshall, it is the story of how God works in all our lives if we let Him. You do not need to be a believer to watch this film, but I challenge you to not believe after watching it. This movie was produced at a time when Hollywood still put out good movies. If you want a film to show the family, that the kids can watch. I reccomend A Man Called Peter. 29) The Way Home: Cain stars as Randy Simpkins, a husband and father torn between the demands of his job and commitment to his family.
