Church produced film 'Courageous' lights up box office on opening weekend
Contributor: Generations Radio

(CNN)– A Baptist church in Albany, Georgia, is getting Hollywood's attention - the church, Sherwood Baptist, has developed a movie-production operation, and its latest offering opened last weekend as the Number Four top money-grossing film in the country.

The Christian-themed film, "Courageous," was developed in connection with TriStar, Sony, and Provident Films. It is meant to inspire fathers to not leave their families, to love their children, to not fail.

"Courageous," which opened in just 1,161 theaters this past weekend, depicts four police officers who share a commonality both as fathers and in their effort to become better ones. The movie and its characters, played by amateur actors and members of Sherwood Baptist are enveloped in various ways in a devastating tragedy.

According to boxoffice.com, which tracks movie response nationwide, put "Courageous" at the fourth position for the ...

While I don't doubt 'Courageous' is a hight quality movie, since the Pastor of Sherwood Baptist Church doesn't have the courage to take a firm stand against Roman Catholicism and is ecumenical including Catholic help in the promotion of this movie, I CANNOT in good conscience endorse it, even though I enjoyed Flywheel, Facing the Giants and Fireproof.

We do need courageous men today and a huge part of that is to stand against the false counterfeit Christianity of Roman Catholicism far more than making inspirational movies.

Back In The 1920s, If My Memory Serves Me Right, Dr. BOB JONES SR. Produced, Via Hollywood, A Film ("Movie") Based On One Of His Most Popular, Famous & Renoun Sermons; That Gripped U.S. Audiences & Produced Countless Of Genuine, True & Lasting "Conversions" Via THE SECOND-BIRTH (As Recorded In THE HOLY WRIT'S Account Of NICODEMUS & CHRIST In ST. JOHN 3:1-16) Throughout ALL THE U.S.A. During THE "ROARING TWENTIES" Entitled "THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME" !

After The Film-"Movie" Was Released & Shown Nationwide; The Hollywood Produced & Directed Film-"Movie" Was So Edited & "Chopped-Up" By The Hollywood Editors/Censors; That Dr. BOB JONES SR. BECAME SO RIGHTEOUSLY INDIGNANT: Saying HOLLYWOOD'S Version Of "THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME" WAS IN NO WAY, SHAPE OR FORM WHAT HIS ORIGINAL FAMOUS SERMON, "THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME" COMMUNICATED, SAID, TOLD & DID !

To My Understanding This Was THE MAIN REASON Why BOB JONES UNIVERSITY Founded Their Very Own CHRISTIAN FILM-PRODUCTION APPARATUS Called "UNUSUAL-FILMS" !

UNUSUAL-FILMS HAS PRODUCED SOME OF THE BEST CHRISTIAN & BIBLICAL BASED FILMS--LEAVING HOLLYWOOD IN THE DUST WITH ITS CECIL B. DeMILLES !

***BJU'S 1970s UNUSUAL-FILM, "FLAME IN THE WIND", SHOWS HISTORIC TRUTHS OF THE SPANISH-INQUISITION FROM A TRUE CHRISTIAN BIBLICISTS' VIEWPOINT !
