    Thumbs up To View or not To View

    Dear Brethren,

    Let's discuss a topic which is central at our covenant home, and that is "To View or not To View: How to view movies from a biblical perspective." How about some rules for the discussion?

    Rule #1 Scripture references plse
    Rule #2 Plenty of qoutes from our faithfull spiritual fathers the Puritans
    Rule #3 Keep it simple yet profound

    Who would like to begin?

    Here is my propostion.

    Christians should not view movies that ...let the discussion begin.

    Why or why not? Just a reminder: our children will want to know why we believe what we believe and why we believe what we believe? In addition, as they grow up they are developing their view of the world. We have been given the responsibility to train them up in the way (God's way, God's law, God's word, God's view of reality) they should go... As they view films their minds, will and emotions are being constructed by their eye and ear gate.

    Peter, are you in a cult?

    The way you style the name of God sounds very much like some of the cults. I pray that you are simply adopting this style out of...ignorance (?)

    It's a common practice among Messianic Jews as well.
