Hollywood Hypocrisy

“A well-known Christian pastor recently said, “We only fully grasp the gospel when we understand (as Paul did) that we are the worst sinner we know.”

In other words, don’t condemn the speck in others’ eyes until you remove the plank from yours. So I hesitate to point out what people do wrong. But sometimes I can’t help it. I have to tell you, there is something today that really bothers me. Next time you go spend your money at the movies, take a minute to think about who or what you are supporting. If you disagree with them philosophically, politically,  or even more importantly, spiritually, why are you giving them your money? And filling your mind with things that contradict what you believe?

Going to see movies like “Fifty Shades of Grey” on Saturday and then going to church on Sunday, now that should raise some serious questions. And if you do it with a group of “Christian friends”, what’s up with that?  I mean, is the popcorn really good enough for you to cast your beliefs to the wind, and make a financial contribution to groups with no beliefs? Think about it. Okay, as I said, I’m not perfect. I don’t always make the right decisions. But I try, especially when I know without a doubt what is right. I try to think about what I’m doing and the witness it shows to others. We all should – no, make that MUST! Be brave in your faith.

“So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.” — JAMES 4:17
