In the particular climate that America finds itself immersed today, there is division, confusion, and perhaps even anger. If we were to go through the streets asking people what’s wrong with the country (maybe even the world) today, there’s a pretty good chance that “the media” would show up in a few answers.

The truth is everyone has that one movie that fits them perfectly. There are all kinds of Christmas movies out there, though. What are some Christian Christmas movies that might appeal to believers?
