3 Faith-Based Films Top $150M at Box Office

Three films with a strong Christian message have scored remarkably well at the domestic box office so far in 2014.

"Heaven Is For Real" took in $13.8 million over the weekend, bringing its two-week total to $51.9 million. It finished No. 3 at the box office.

"God's Not Dead" was No. 11 at the box office, earning $2.8 million over the weekend, bringing it's six-week total to $52.7 million. (The film cost a mere $2 million to make, giving it the distinction of being the most profitable film of 2014.

And let's not forget "Son of God," which has been out for nine weeks and has earned $59.5 million at the box-office, another remarkable feat, considering the movie is a re-edited version of the TV mini-series, "The Bible."

Meanwhile, the much-hyped "Noah" will turn out to be one of the biggest flops of 2014, unable to earn back its $125 million production costs. That's what you get when an atheist director decides he can twist a biblical tale to meet his liberal fantasies.

Perhaps the heathens who run Hollywood will take notice that faith-based films have a place in American society.
