In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

Netflix Picks

Netflix has just about every movie you could ever want. I signed up my first year in college and its definitely the best $8 I spend every month. The best part of the deal is all the great movies you can watch at anytime via laptop, game console, or blu-ray player. I'm gonna give you my top 10 picks for Christian movies/documentaries that you can watch off their instant queue. If you don't have Netflix, I strongly encourage you to try their one month free trial! You've got nothing to lose, and the options on the instant queue are amazing (tons of tv shows, documentaries, classic movies, and comedies).

Top 10 picks (in no particular order)
1. God in America
2. The Case for Christ
3. Max Lucado 3:16
4. Christianity and Islam
5. God of Wonders
6. Letters to God
7. The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry
8. The Case for Faith
9. Who Was Jesus?
10.The Company: Inigo and His Jesuits

Now pop a bag of popcorn and snuggle under a blanket for some good movie time!

My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding— indeed, if you call out for insight, and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds success in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless,  for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones. Proverbs 2:1-10

This passage encourages us to learn more about our Lord and educate ourselves in His teachings, so we can understand how wise and strong our God is. We cannot be true faithful followers if we do not understand who we are following. Of course, we should learn as much as we can from out Biblical teachers and pastors and read our Bible. However, watching documentaries and spiritual-themed movies can also show us the teachings of the Lord while giving us an example of modern-day followers. Enjoy!
