Usually our Thursday and Friday posts consist of theological parallel’s to movies being released for the weekend, but tomorrow we have something very unique for our readers. A high school friend of mine played a role in Mark Wahlberg’s Contraband and we will be posting an interview from him. Some of you may be aware that Contraband is a rather rough film (even if you don’t know anything about the film, the title should tell you a lot).

Well, my friend is a believer and he acts in this film – a film with drugs, cursing, and violence. Can a Christian act in a film like this? Should Christians watch these types of films? I believe these are questions many Christians have and they do not have easy answers. While we do not plan to get definitive answers to these questions through tomorrow’s interview, we hope to get a dialogue started among Christians. This site hopes to cultivate discernment among Christians who view film as a gift from God, and interviews like the one tomorrow should assist with that. Again, everyone who reads the post tomorrow will not agree, but these discussions are important for us to engage in.

Therefore, come back tomorrow and read through the interview, think through the questions, engage on our site, and engage with other believers to better steward your mind and the gift of film.
