It’s said that, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” What does this say to you?
Let me start it off. It’s ironic that Christian symbols and beliefs are offensive while profanity, nudity, infidelity, etc., are accepted on TV, radio and newspapers.
I image many of you have seen Forrest Gump. I really liked that movie. A few years ago I heard a man on the radio talk about this movie. He made a point that really struck with me. He asked, “Do you think Forrest Gump is a wholesome movie?” I thought, “Duh, of course it is.” The speaker reminded the audience that one of the very first scenes was Forest Gump’s mother engaging in a sex scene. He went on to remind us that Forrest Gump engaged in pre-marital sex and that’s how “Lil Gump” was born. I missed both of those things. I’m not suggesting we boycott the movie. I am suggesting that we can easily miss this. Or, looked at another way–some things are normalized and Christians might miss un-Christian like behavior. Well, that’s enough about that movie.
The secular society won’t miss the opportunity criticise something Christian base. Ok, that’s my take. What’s yours?
