Going to the theatre to watch a movie is a definte no no for adventists but we manage to convince ourselves that brining a movie home is somwehow alright. Where are we going wrong? Many adventists argue that the reason God through Mrs. White instructed his people not to visit the theatre was because theatres in the early 19th century were also brothel houses and bars, while this may be true there was another reason for this instruction. As a people living under judgement we have certain duties to fulfill one of which is to contantly watch and pray and confess our sins before God. In order for the spirit to speak to us and convict us our minds must be clean and clear, movies, especially the ones that tend to be really popular tend to dull our brains and make them less recpetive to the spirit's voice. I think this is why we should stay away from theatres and movies that draw our minds away from God and make us more vulnerable to satans attacks..

Entertainment is what the world craves. Let's do all to the glory of God.

For me , i see nothing wrong with going to the movies. It all depends what is going on in the movies(on the screen and in the theatre itself)

ummmm you know what, i try to watch true stories instead of fiction movies PERO i do sometimes watch the odd fiction movie, the question you need to ask yourself is why are you watching it? the movies we watch are sometimes just things that happen on the street and in the world, so for me I dont see a problem.

In response to adventistpandagirl....I think regardless of where we are there will always be people saying bad things and doing bad things. Such is the world we inhabit. THe key thing is going to a movie that is acceptable. If the movie is one that is not bad then i see nothing wrong with going to watch it at a theatre.

I think that going to the movies is okay if you only go to the alright ones. My family reads about the movies first on ScreenIt. If there is a lot of words or bad scenes, we will not watch them. We will watch a fairly clean and accurate rated "R" historical movie. It has already happened, and we need to know our history. We also watch a lot of "faith" movies. So I think it is okay if you screen the movies first.

I don't think we should go to movies... Even if the movie is acceptable. Who knows what the environment around us will be. People could be using inappropriate language or who knows what else.
