Question of the day: the theater.
I grew up in a home where the rules were fairly strict. In fact, when it came to movies in the home, pillows were used quite frequently. For example: when the prince kissed Cinderella, the pillow was thrown in front of the screen. Yes, I’m talking about the cartoon – my parents didn’t want us kids watching that “stuff.”
My family didn’t even have cable until a few years ago. Watching cartoons over at Grandma’s house when we were kids was a huge treat for us!
One thing my parents never allowed though was going to the movies. However, once the movie came out on video, we would rent it and bring it home if it was something that we wanted to see. So here’s my question…
Is it wrong for Christians to go to the movie theaters? Why or why not?
How is going to the theater any different from bringing the movie into your own home 6 months later?
