This is an issue I have been pondering for some time owing to the fact that the Puritans and others preached against theater attendance. I have not been able to come down firmly against movie watching, though (or yet!), because I find many of the arguments against movies to be rather weak. However, here are the headings from some arguments by Free Presbyterian minister Brian McClung to mull over:
I. It is wrong because of the concept.
II. It is wrong because of the company.
III. It is wrong because of the content.
I guess the issue I’m having is that these arguments don’t seem to apply in all cases. For instance, a group of Christians watching a Christian film together doesn’t quite seem to fit the case being made. What do you think?
