Moral Discernment and the Movies

Over at Christ and Pop Culture, Nick Olson takes a look at how Christians evaluate the good and bad of movie viewing. Nick suggests that it isn’t as simple as listing bad words.

Not a new conversation; one that I wish we could get past – but an important one none-the-less. And certainly one that directly impacts on my life’s work – telling stories to all kinds of audiences.

Quote from Nick’s article:

I think it’s lost on many well-meaning people that moral failures are often failures of the imagination. The inability to see the ethical embedded within life’s narrative reflects a diminished understanding of how God’s law of love plays out in the larger story of redemption.
