Do you Watch the Things God Hates?

6:58

Do you Watch the Things God Hates?

Hi Tim,What are we to make of 1 Corinthians 10:31? I'm trying to live as a Biblical Christian and follow God with all of my being.However, I love going to see movies, and I'm quite aware of the garbage in a lot of today's movies. But there are some good ones out there. For example, the movie Defiance is a good story through and through. It does have sex scenes, a few swears, but overall it fills you with excitement and passion to do the right thing.However, is it right for me to watch such a movie if there is a 1-minute sex scene or two or three swears? How far do you go with 1 Corinthians 10:31? Because to take that passage to the extreme, you could become paranoid of dishonoring God and eventually just end up living in your closet....Thanks-Dave
