If you start allowing yourself to watch hollywood movies and still want to profess Christianity you have taken on a huge job – that of sorting out the ones “bad” from the “worse” and the “worst.” (My 3 categories have nothing to do with ratings [R or X etc.] nor what a movie critic says – I speak of sin.) And, once you start this, unless you are mighty careful/super disciplined you’ll slip into the next lower category and will have gone from “bad” to “worse.”

Mr Quiet


The one voted “most likely to succeed”

May end up having the greatest need.

While “Mr Quiet” or “Miss Bashful,”

Misjudged by peers as quite dull,

Does the weightiest deed.

Few, if any, fictional movies are inspired by God.

(Maybe a few biographical movies, Maybe?) If the above is as true as I think, there’s but one other spirit – satan – to “inspire” the huge movie industry (& it IS just that, an industry). One source [Stephen Follows] shows nearly 3000 movies made in a recent year in India, Nigeria, & US alone. Does satan have an agenda? Of course! I beg you Friend, stop your addiction to movies, even those labeled “christian.”

Christ is THE WORD – not the movie. (I hate to put His Illustrious name in the same sentence with “movie.”)
