by Huntress_Dark_Knight | created - 05 Feb 2012 | updated - 09 Nov 2012 | Public

Some of these are christian films based on bible and christian theaching's. Some of these have nothing to do with the bible or christian teaching's far from it, but they make you think about other things that do have to do with something else that is christian beliefs at least they did me.

For a lot of these and many more check out christian cinema
