How Much Impact Does Hollywood Have on Culture, on Christians?

Friday, August 1, 2014

Guest: Rich Christiano, film producer, A Matter of Faith

“I will walk within my house in the integrity of my heart.  I will set no worthless thing before my eyes” (Psalm 101:2-3).

Most films produced by Hollywood include obscenity, profanity, violence, sexual scenes or innuendo, and a humanistic—or even anti-Christian—worldview.  And yet many professing Christians go to the movies each week as if taking in the sin presented on screen won’t have any effect on them.

What impact does the movie industry have on Christians specifically and our culture in general?  Is there a biblical criteria on which followers of Christ can base their movie-watching?

Rich Christiano thinks so.  He is a longtime producer and director of Christian films and the founder of the website, ChristianMovies.com.  He joins us this weekend on The Christian Worldview to give us a behind the scenes look at what Hollywood is selling.  He will also tell us about his new film “A Matter of Faith” (fall 2014) which depicts the compelling story of a college freshman encountering a professor who teaches evolution.

Note: If you are interested in sponsoring “A Matter of Faith” in your hometown theater, email Rich at RC@ChristianMovies.com.

TCW Minute: Illegal Immigration (July 28–Aug. 3, 2014)

What’s a Christian response to illegal immigration?  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

For years, millions of immigrants have been illegally crossing our borders, including recently 60,000 unaccompanied children.

Immigration is a complex issue with political, constitutional, national security, economic, racial, theological, and historical implications.

The Bible says that all people are made in the image of God.  Each has an equal and valuable soul.  And we are to help those in need.

And yet, we must balance that with the biblical role of government to promote a good and stable society. When our nation secures its borders and implements a wise immigration system, then we can focus on welcoming and sharing the love of Christ with those coming here.

Hear more about illegal immigration at TheChristianWorldview.org.

This weekend, we’ll discuss Hollywood’s impact on society.

5 ways to maintain a biblical perspective on Christian leaders? 5 ways to maintain a biblical perspective on Christian leaders?

1. Realize that no man and no ministry is infallible or beyond accountability.  “Celebrity Christians” are saved sinners like everyone else and are under the same standards of God as everyone else. 2. Learn from three or more sound teachers, not just one.  Avoid being a “fan” of just one man or ministry. 3. Prioritize being a part of your local church.  This is where God has designed us to be taught, have fellowship, take communion, and pray (Acts 2:41-41). 4. Be like the...

How do we find God’s will in decisions when the Bible doesn’t give an explicit answer? How do we find God’s will in decisions when the Bible doesn’t give an explicit answer?

1. Does the Bible say anything explicitly or by implicitly about the decision you’re facing? For example, the Bible is clear that a Christian should not marry a non-Christian.  (1 Corinthians 7:39 A wife is bound as long as her husband lives; but if her husband is dead, she is free to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord.) 2. Abide in Christ.   John 15:7 “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”  In other words, the closer...
