This Is Nothing New: Hollywood Courts Pastors And Their Congregations.

Reader secular Hollywood is quietly courting the faithful by inviting pastors to movie sets, writing bullet points for sermons, proposing Sunday school lesson plans etc.. But of course, this is nothing new, this has been part of the film industry’s outreach to Christian audience, for a minute now.  On the surface, Hollywood is a land of loose morals. But movie studios have quietly — very quietly — been building connections to Christian filmgoers.

I came across this article in the New York Times on my timeline. I'm unsure whether it's appropriate for the Church to "advertise" a movie or television show, on one hand the entertainment industry is such a dominant part of our social culture and we should be discerning about what we watch and encouraged by Hollywood's efforts to sell specifically to Christian audiences, on the other hand, this is an industry motivated by greed and rooted in sinful values.

What are your thoughts?


  1. What have Light with Darkness. No No No . A church shouldn't advertised a movie. But churches are doing anything now for the Almighty Dollars. They only care about popularity, fame and fortune. It's not about SOULS. The House Of GOD has become a Den of Thieves.

  2. When this movie comes out in January. My church will reserve an entire movie theater and watch this as a church family. How could such history fly under the radar all these years?

  3. Miss Ann,

    I agree with the two "anonymouses". One of the reasons I left the church I last attended was the introduction of a movie night (sheesh!).

    It is annoying that the pastors feel like they are contribution to movies is "positive", but actually "Hollweird" is using them to reel in the unsuspecting.

    "For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth." Luke 21:35

    The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall NOT want...
