This much anticipated and dreaded movie opens nationwide today, and it's been interesting to me to observe the different sorts of responses by Christians. Some say we should go see it as a way of creating an opportunity to share the truth about Jesus with those who are lost and confused. Others say something like, "boycott the heresy!!" I agree with an article I read yesterday that said buying a ticket to the movie is like casting a vote saying, "Yes, Hollywood, make more movies like this." On the other hand, it can still be an opportunity to share the truth, even if you haven't seen the movie. It comes back to the important balance we must acheive to be both innocent and relevant. That's the way to be most effective in our culture.
Please join me in praying that the movie will not cause a "reverse revival" as many fear, and that Christians will stand strong in the face of opposition.
Here's to unshakeable faith!
