Looking for a little inspiration for you soul? Netflix is currently carrying a nice selection of spiritual movies focusing on the subject that you can check out at your leisure. With a range that covers stories from the Old and New Testaments, you can be entertained and encouraged while feeding your soul.
Some of the movies may be a bit graphic in the portrayal of events from the Bible, but the reality of the matter is that things were simply not neat, clean and antiseptic like we like to picture in our minds. For instance, the crucifixion of Christ was not a nice and beautiful event. The Passion of the Christ movie is famous for its very gory retelling of Christ being crucified, but probably offers the most accurate view of an event that changed the world.
Even if you’re not really into the Bible itself, you will definitely benefit from the moral insights and encouraging messages of these movies. There is something for everyone to gain from virtually experiencing the stories that are all about the human condition, and tell the history of very interesting historical and religious figures.
