Should We Have Religious Movies?

A. W. Tozer is highly respected by many modern preachers and Bible teachers for His writings on God and spiritual themes. It would be interesting to hear what the same people would say about his view of religious movies. In an article on religious movies, he gives gives seven reasons for his opposition to religious movies. He opposed them because they violated the scriptural law of hearing; because they embody the mischievous notion that religion is, or can be made, a form of entertainment; because they are a menace to true religion because it embodies acting, a violation of sincerity; because those who present the gospel movie owe it to the public to give biblical authority for their act: and this they have not done; because God has ordained four methods only by which Truth shall prevail: and the religious movie is not one of them; because the religious movie is out of harmony with the whole spirit of the Scriptures and contrary to the mood of true godliness; and because of the harmful effect upon everyone associated with it. This article has much which needs to be considered in this day of religious movies and drama presentations. I recommend you read the entire article.
