Hollywood and the Christian

  The notion of life in outer space promotes the diabolical theory of evolution, for of course, if life could spontaneously evolve here on earth, then conceivably it could do so elsewhere in the universe.  But for those who believe the Holy Scriptures it is quite evident that there is no life anywhere else; and they should derive no pleasure from such ungodly fantasies as are portrayed in science fiction films.

Comedies

  Fourthly, the comedy: this type of entertainment is often considered innocent by those professing to be “Christians;” but it is far from being so in truth.  Such movies almost always contain blasphemy, filthy language, jokes and behaviour.  For a comedy to be successful in this sinful world, it invariably makes fun of the holy standard of God’s Word regarding sexual matters.  Such wickedness should never be entertaining to Christians.  “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge” (Heb.13:4); yet marriage is mocked, and adultery and fornication are treated lightheartedly, in comedies.  “But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks” (Eph.5:3,4).  Many innocent things are amusing, and there is a time to laugh (Eccl.3:4); but to laugh at sin is itself sinful.

  Christian standards and practices, God Himself, and the Lord Jesus Christ, are mocked in many comedies.  The blessed name of the Lord is used as a curse-word on the lips of wicked men and women.  What true Christian is able to sit through such vileness, and be entertained?  Is the true Christian able to bear to hear his Lord’s name used thus?  He is a hypocritical liar who says that he loves the Lord, but tolerates, and even laughs at, such things!  To hear the worldling make fun of the One before whom he will stand on the judgment day is a cause for weeping, not laughing.  It is a tragedy, not a comedy.
