Speculative TV & Movies
The last decade or two has seen an explosion of speculative entertainment (fantasy, sci-fi, paranormal, superhero, horror, etc). With more distribution channels and ways to target specific audiences, entertainment creators have found profit in telling stories that go beyond the mundane world we see every day.
Of all people, Christians can rejoice at this opportunity to tell stories that explore realities beyond our five senses. Our reality, as children of an almighty, invisible God, is beyond the mundane. It is in the supernatural Kingdom of God that we have our citizenship and where we "live and move and breathe", even as we walk on this physical earth.
Like anything else in this fallen world, the imagination can be used to paint a picture of truth or lies, to explore things that express the glory of God and His reality or to deny it. As followers of Christ, we are challenged to discern between good and evil and to consume this world's entertainment with wisdom.
Christian fans of speculative fiction have a lot of opinions about how to approach what's out there. Reviews of TV shows and movies, guides to the type of content they contain, discussions about thematic elements -- this is where iron sharpens iron and we each individually work out where we stand, and we choose for our families.
The TV & Movies category offers a curated collection of resources for Christians of all roles and faiths, whether parent, pastor, blogger, lay leader, or Christian fan of all things #specfic.
