Hollywood; Christians Need To Run From It!

Recommended Posts

Christians should have nothing to do with Hollywood (Holly wood is the wood of wicca) Not their movies, not Disney, not anything from that filth pit.

 

I pray everyday that Hollywood gets obliterated off the map.

 

Somehow, I don't think God would agree with you on this.  He will handle it and has the ultimate say, not man.

Jesus rebuked His disciples James and John when they wanted to obliterate some sinners.

 

Christ came to offer salvation to the lost, not to obliterate them. Christ commissioned His followers to spread the Gospel and make disciples, and to do so with love, kindness, gentleness, patience and all the fruits of the Spirit.

 

"Obliteration" and judgment are to remain in God's hands, according to His timing. In the meantime, we are to pray for the lost to be open to the Gospel and to share the Gospel with the lost and make disciples of those who come to Christ.

You can't save Hollywood; you can't reform it. Christians should have nothing to do with that industry, not even use it to produce "Christ" looking films....how many can you honestly say came from "Witches-wood" and did not contain blasphemy, abomination and wickedness?

 

We are to oppose this world and the things this world holds in high esteem and Witches-wood is a stinking rotten pit of self-glorious filth. We should hate it because it hates our Christ.

This again?  Is this fellowshipping? 

 Apparently so, GS.  No, this is not fellowshipping.  Praying "that Hollywood gets obliterated off the map" is not appropriate Christian behavior.  

Did Jesus "obliterate the Apostle Paul, and have him blown off the map" before Paul was saved on the Road to Damascus?  I think not.  God will bring, and has brought many people in Hollywood to the saving knowledge of His son the Lord Jesus Christ.

Fellowshipping is not the only thing that goes on here, y'all.  We can each express our opinions, right? So can he...

 

That said - I don't wish it obliterated, although it would be nice if the garbage produced there changed or ended - and the actors all became less important in their minds, in the media, and in the minds of those who all but worship them.  

 

God obliterated Sodom and Gomorrah and the other cities of the plains because of their sin.  He can do what He wills.  If that is what He wants, it will happen.  Sadly, this world is a den of iniquity, and Hollywood is both a result of that sin and a promotion of that sin.  Christians do need to be more discerning about what they allow into their eye and ear gates, about what they spend their money on and in support of, etc.  

 

"I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes..."

Praying for someone is not fellowshipping with them.

Daniel, I can stand against wickedness without calling down God's destruction. Just because someone doesn't care for your use of invective doesn't mean they support the evil that is there.

Reminds me of Jonah not wanting to preach to Nineveh...

 

Daniel...the Lord Jesus Christ died for those in Hollywood just as he died for you.  I would think he would rather you witness to them rather than heading to Tarshish.

Daniel I believe the correct statement here should be that Christians need to pray for hollywood this is away of our rejection of such sin and our love for the lost when we lift up our voice unto the Father by prayer..

 

Gods Word teaches us to love and to pray for our enemies and we can know that anyone that is worldly and evil as the men of hollywood movies would surely be a enemy right? should we then harden our heart to condemn all of hollywood to be obliterated which would mean by death, would condemn the lost to hell.  God rejects this kind of thought and prayer.

 

But I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you and persecute you

That you may be the children of your Father which is in heaven; for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and the unjust Matthew 5:44-45

 

 we are giving a commandment to love our enemies but not with just mere human affection but with the love that comes from God, loving a enemy involves doing good toward that enemy in order to win him over to Jesus. also we are reminded of the importance of this love is necessary proof of salvation '' That you may be the children of your Father which is in Heaven" and by knowing this we should be a witness unto this lost world .Amen
