In the House
"Be imitators of
God..." Ephesians 5:1
The visual medias... movies, television, and theater... are
important influences in today's society. They can carry messages and
philosophies that shape the ideas and beliefs of multitudes.
Look at how a single movie, Star Wars, as popularied belief
in "the Force", a non-existant mythical whatever.
|Through the media, the homosexual community has managed to change
their "lifestyle" from one that people use to avoid and
shun, to one that should not only be "tolerated" but into
something that is almost superior to the heterosexual
lifestyle. So that now a group of "queers" is
showing the "straight guys" how to live.
|Look at how many milions of dollars companies will pour into a
sixty second ad during the Superbowl - and that's before you even
count the cost of airing it once. (Then tell me that
television and movies do not influence people's actions.)
The Bible, in Ephesians 5:1, tells us to be "imitators"
of God. It is from that Greek word that the word
"thespians" (actors) comes. By "acting
out" on the principles and purposes of God on stage, we can
powerfully influence the culture of our world. Most people are
not reached by intellectual arguments, but by the softening of their
hearts - easily accomplished by a good drama or comedy.
|As Christians, we have a calling to "redeem" the entire
world around us. The
performing arts - including the stage, television and movie - must
be included in the redemption. They need to be used as the
powerful tools they are for changing our world.
