The commercialization of our faith...
According to this article headlined "Hollywood Marketing Films Through Churches", large influential churches are serving as test audiences for films that aren't overtly Christian.
Yes, I agree with the overall theme that Christians need to take stronger action when it comes to what our children watch - yet I fear that the church is at risk for exploitation all in the name of money.
Increasingly there's a realization among businesses that the "Christian Market" is underserved. I think that this is a good thing overall as there are more movies for Christians to watch and enjoy, as opposed to all violence and crap on tv.
There's a very fine line, and going with everything I've observed, read, and learned while operating this blog, the potential for abuse is ever-present.
I don't want my faith bottled down to the lowest common denominator to sell more movies. My faith isn't cheap, nor is it a commodity. I'm not sure I want to be viewed as a Christian consumer - as someone to specifically sell goods too.
I'm not terribly sure that's how Jesus would view Himself.
