As technology and access to media grows, so does its influence on our culture. As Christians we strive to protect our hearts and minds from influences that contradict our faith. However, this has become increasingly difficult in the realm of film and entertainment. As Christ slowly disappears from Hollywood, so do uplifting, faith-based films.
“We wanted to make positive uplifting life affirming content that ultimately catered to the morals and values of what our society and culture was built on,” White recently told FOX411.
Watch David A.R. White explain the mission and vision of Pure Flix in this short video:
Pure Flix is Hope for Hollywood
Thanks to companies like Pure Flix, Christian movies are brought to the mainstream theatres rather than relegated to the DVD shelves of Christian book stores. Pure Flix’s box office film, “God’s Not Dead,” grossed $62 million on a $2 million dollar budget, proving there are filmmakers who want to make relevant Christian films, and an audience of consumers who are hungry for positive, family-friendly content.
Still, Hollywood and media are progressively becoming more secular. According to a 2016 study by the Parents Television Council, "The amount and intensity of adult content on TV-PG shows is increasing, yet the TV-PG rating does not reflect these changes. Consequently, children are exposed to more adult content, even when parents choose TV-PG rated programs.”
Now more than ever, we need to support Christian movies and keep Jesus in Hollywood so that Jesus’ teachings stay in the popular media and in the entertainment we all consume.
