If we live in developed nations, then chances are we all probably have seen a movie at some point or another. Chances are most of us who have seen a movie loved the entertainment of the story, the special effects, and almost every bit of it. But is it worth your time? As it turns out, it most definitely is not.
Whether you watch Hollywood movies or movies from any other cinema empire, there’s a very good chance it may have at least some forbidden content in it. Whether it’s a love scene with too much detail, the taking of an innocent life, background music, or even something as dangerous as a scene involving polytheism, movies today almost all have it. Even if it’s not all movies, it’s still likely no less than 99.9% of movies that have things no one should be seeing.
Let’s look at some examples.
Take Marvel, for example.
Marvel movies have a long history of polytheism in them. One of the most popular characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is Thor. The character explicitly is called the god of thunder and is based on Norse pagan mythology. And the enemy of Thor and many other characters in the MCU is his adopted brother Loki, the god of mischief. And let’s not forget Dr. Strange, whose character is a sorcerer practicing what’s in reality just black magic. Pure polytheism in these first three examples. And millions of people, including children and teenagers, watch these films every year.
But let’s not just look at the MCU.
What about the movies based on DC Comics? Wonder Woman is a heroine from Greek mythology. Though not a goddess in the movies and comics, her story regularly includes appearances from Hades, the Greek god of the underworld, and Ares, the Greek god of war. Not to mention it makes references to Athena, the Greek goddess of justice and wisdom, and Hera, the Greek goddess who was the god Zeus’s wife. This is just more heresy being glorified in Hollywood. And yet, Wonder Woman is considered to be a fictional role model for millions of girls in the West.
And though many might say it’s just for fun and entertainment, look at it this way: what is fun about acting as if Almighty God had many partners??? Is it something meant to be enjoyed? No. It’s a very, very serious thing to fall into. A very dangerous act too. It’s essentially glorifying and adoring polytheism. And that’s not something we should be promoting to our children.
For all these reasons, it’s highly advisable to get out of watching movies completely. They almost all contain something that is not good for anybody to be watching. And that something generally involves sin and disobedience to God. If you are addicted to movies and just cannot get out of watching them, then do it slowly. Watch content with less bad content. Read summaries of the movie plots before watching them to be sure. Gradually watch less and less movies until you stop completely.
