Why do people not like Christians?
That’s a question I thought about while reading When People Forget God, Life Is Impoverished by Ted Baehr.
The post was lamenting peoples’ lack of belief in the god of the Bible.
Maybe people don’t believe in God because they don’t want to be like the people who do, I thought.
With words like these, I believe Ted Baehr is doing a poor job of witnessing:
- “Christianity, a form of ethical monotheism, is superior to all…non-Christian or anti-Christian worldviews…” (What’s Your Worldview?)
- “…most feature films often require stereotypes, even negative ones, to tell a good story…they appeal only to narrow-minded bigots with an ax to grind, whose mental faculties and hearts have been poisoned by their sinful misanthropic prejudice.” (Movieguide’s review of There Will Be Blood.)
- “…Adolph Hitler and his National Socialist demagogues… The pro-abortion, pro-gun control leftists in Hollywood are the rightful heirs of these socialist monsters.” (Movieguide’s review of Runaway Jury.)
- “Naturally, [Roger Ebert] was also obviously attracted to the steamy sex scenes in MONSTER’S BALL. He also apparently didn’t mind ogling the naked breasts of Halle Berry, who plays Leticia (he got to see similar sightings of a voluptuous nude black woman in BELOVED, it should be noted)…” (Words that have been changed in Movieguide’s review of Monster’s Ball.)
- “…THE COUNSELOR has no heart, no moral courage, not much intelligence or wit, and no honor. Also, there is no Wizard of Oz to lend it any of those things. Except, perhaps, for the obsequious, phony pseudo-intellectual elitists running the news media and America’s critic organizations, who like to insert redeeming qualities and artistic value when there are none.” (Movieguide’s review of The Counselor.)
- “Bill Murray sounds like every loony leftist National Socialist politician. His sycophants do a perfect job of creating an aura of National Socialism, or liberal fascism with a happy face. He may remind many viewers of another politician currently running for president.” (Movieguide’s review of City of Ember.)
- “Regrettably, a new wave of Christian media courses sends vulnerable children to movies with corrosive, corrupting immorality and philosophy so that the children can talk to their peers about them.” (The Key to Real Media Wisdom.)
