A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Mockery of Jesus Christ

Yesterday we discussed the fact that the producers of A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas abused God’s creation of sex for their own profit. Not only do they mock God’s creation for their own gain, they tell you that’s what their going to do. Because of this, Christians should not have to think too intently on whether or not they should view this film. However, because of the issue of Christian liberty, some Christians still think they can partake in the viewing of this film and just laugh at the ‘graphic nudity’ and ‘strong crude sexual content’.

Well, let me give you one other concern, mocking the Creator, Sustainer, and Savior of the Christian race. I haven’t seen the movie and I don’t plan on seeing the movie, but the trailer (and the poster to the right) give me enough reason to abstain from this horrifically trashy film. I don’t know exactly how my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ is going to be portrayed in this movie, but I can assure you, if the producers are exploiting sex and drugs, they aren’t going to give Christ the honor he is due.

Some other things I do know, is that Heaven is depicted as a strip club and Jesus is hanging out there. There’s really no limit to the amount of dishonor that this film will bring to the only Savior of sinners, so it’s probably best not to continue to speculate.

One other note about Harold & Kumar disgracing The Christ, is the heresy that seems to be communicated about Jesus in the trailer. The dialogue that goes back-and-forth between Neil Patrick Harris and Jesus implies that Jesus is inferior to the Father. This is a heresy and misunderstanding of the Trinity. Again, I don’t know the exact direction the film is going to take on this, but this could get into monarchianism or adoptionism which are heresies. They imply that the Father is superior to the Son and the Spirit, but that is a misunderstanding. God is one being with three distinct personalities. Although those personalities are distinct, they are equal in glory. When we refer to the God-head, we typically give an order (the Father, the Son, & the Holy Spirit), but this does not imply importance or rank. All of this to say, this movie mocks our Savior and spouts heresy to its viewers.

In Mark Driscoll’s book, Religion Saves + Nine Other Misconceptions, he deals with a chapter on humor. He complies a top 10 list for sanctifying comedy, and places this at the top of the list:

Don’t mock God. God is great. God is not a sinner. God is not to be judged by us. God is God. Further, God has a long history of getting the last laugh. So don’t mock God.

I think this is good advice and should greatly help us in the issue of discernment. Don’t mock God. This is never funny and if you laugh, you must repent of laughing at a perfect, holy God. God deserves all glory, honor, and respect, you don’t. Therefore, who are you to laugh at the only One who is due honor.

So that’s my, somewhat, harsh (truthful) post about H&K3D. Christians should not watch it for the graphic nudity and exploitation of God’s creation of sex. But they also shouldn’t watch it because it mocks the only one who can grant eternal life. Your time and money could be better spent elsewhere and they should be spent elsewhere, because they aren’t your time and money, they are God’s. I do wonder, when the producers, writers, directors, and actors of this film (especially the actor that mocks Christ) bow the knee to Christ one day, what’s the exchange going to look like?

    I just saw the trailer of this movie and to say I was irritated and offended is putting it mildly.

    What i find even more sad however is that some people who call them Christians will see this movie and laugh about how funny that scene is!

    Well, Christ is coming soon and every eye shall see Him, in all His glory. Shalom!

      We all need to remember Free Will. You do not need to watch the movie, which I saw last night and laughed till it hurt, to know it would be a Blasphemous portrayal, but that is where free will comes in enjoy it in moderation and remember i don’t damn your views so please accept mine 🙂
