Next on the “List”, let’s check out going to the movies. Now, I figure that I’m getting myself into quite a controversy, oh well, a blogger must to do what a blogger must to do.
First and foremost, let’s look at what God has to say.
3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.
12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
1 I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid?
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Please remember that God hates: murder, fornication, public nudity, adultery, foul language, disobedience in children, disrespect in wives, abuse is husbands and fathers, homosexuality, and drunkenness, among other things.
Are we kidding ourselves? These things are what most movies are all about!
OK, so what’s in a movie? Here is where I find that out.
I was reading a blog the other day and the (Christian) writer was saying how thrilled she was to be going to see Will Farrell’s latest movie.
Let’s see what this movie is all about.
Some have suggested that we are hypocrites because we watch things at home on TV. If you are watching the same garbage at home that you would at the theatre, then I would have to agree.
At our house, we have a remote control, and we know how to use it. We also have a cuss box to remove most, if not all foul language.
What about TV?
I believe the same reasoning applies. A friend of mine once told me how that she loves to watch “Friends”. Huh? Please read this. Why, oh why would a child of God ever delight in this?
Our pastor has a saying. “Hollywood hates your God” Its true.
Would my precious Jesus enjoy Hollywood’s latest? Most likely, no. Why should I?
