Anyone have a strong opinion (wait, let me put on my bulletproof vest! :laugh: ) on showing movies to children, youth or small group Bible studies and pulling topical themes out to prove Biblical ideas? My wife and I have started inviting men and women to our home to have "Dinner and a Movie" nights, and closing the evening with guided discussions. I have been approached about doing a series of movies over the summer on Friday nights at our church for families (children included). I found a wonderful resource that has movies, decoration ideas, fun games, and snacks for 20 films as well as the Biblical application for each one. I'm sure that there are those here who would not use a Hollywood film to do this, but I'm wondering who has strong opinions on this issue. Below are some examples of movies and the theme that is drawn out: 101 Dalmatians: When a woman kidnaps puppies to create a fur coat, animals courageously cooperate to rescue the puppy prisoners. Your children will consider how they can be courageous using Joshua 1:6-9. Babe: Raised by sheepdogs, Babe (a pig) discovers that he's special. As your children experience this charming tale, they'll discover that, in Christ, they're special too! Beauty and the Beast: Bitter and trapped in a beast's body, a prince experiences the transforming power of love... just as your children can experience the transforming power of God's love! 1 John 4:7-8 What do you think?
