Church uses Andy Griffith show

BURLINGTON, N.C. - There's a certain small talk you hear when hard-core fans of "The Andy Griffith Show" gather.

You can catch that kind of conversation during a class called "The Way Back to Mayberry," held Wednesday nights at First Presbyterian Church in Burlington.

Class members watch an episode each week and discuss how it illustrates Biblical teaching.

"It just brings Scripture to life, and Scripture brings the show to life," said Holt Skinner, a First Presbyterian member who teaches the class. ...

A nit: griffins are mythical creatures.

Not that I'm that crazy about the current subject, but according to www.mayberry.com/tagsrwc/wbmutbb/anewsome/private/andybio.htm,
Griffith did not become a Moravian preacher, at least by training.

Moravians were one of the Hussite groups: disciples of Jan Hus, the martyred Bohemian reformer. Hus found out how trustworthy an Imperial "safe conduct" was. He prepared the ground for Luther.

Sorry I put your name in instead of mine. Yes I will take your word for it. Even though it was Andy who said it Hollywood is still behind it. And I trust Hollywood as much as I would the devil himself, which would be 0.

I would think the nurse would be telling the truth. The nurse was a good christian woman who was a member of my congregation. She had no reason to lie. And, as I said, Leilani was with Frances the last 7 months of her life.

I saw a documentary of the show narrated by Andy Griffin himself.

Andy Griffin said that it was true that Frances Bavier did not like him at all, and he wasnt really sure why.

But he did say before she died that they patched things up.

Tony,

Contrary to what you may have read, or heard, I have a wonderful friend who was a nurse for Frances Bavier the last 7 months of her life. Frances Bavier was a very bitter woman toward Andy Griffith. Something had happened between them on the set of one of the shows and she never forgave him. Her nurse, Leilani (I will not give her last name), said Frances carried that hatred for Andy to her deathbed.

Now, God's Word tells us that if a man say he love God and hates his brother, the love of God is not in him. Based on that verse, I would wonder if Frances was truly saved.

No comment on the value to a Christian (or anyone else for that matter) on watching the show. It certainly is better than "Sex In The City" or some other such slop that pollutes the airways today. I just offer two tidbits of info that may or may not mean anything to you. Mr. Griffith is an ordained Moravian minister and from what I've heard and read, her is very evangelical in his personal beliefs. The official biography of Frances Bavier (Aunt Bee) lists her as a Bible believing born again Christian and refers to her death as "going home to be with her Lord."

Read about yoga & you'll find it's really just a variant on Gnosticism (flesh bad, spirit good), a heresy the church was supposed to have put behind it 1900 yrs ago.

I was shocked and disappointed to read that this church will be teaching Islam and yoga in their 2006 classes. Teaching eastern meditation in what is supposed to be a place of worship?..

Even so, come quiclky Lord Jesus, in this time of apostasy.

FYI, this church is PCUSA and does not seem to be in the Confessing Church movement (the conservatives who ought to separate but don't).

I am continually surprised at how often I see Presbys following the popish schedule. Is Walt's church the only exception?

You can get some good messages from this show. Andy many times would ask Opie if he said his prayers. There was several times I seen Opie kneeling down in prayer just before bedtime. I am a huge fan of the show and would probably rate in my all time favorite. Compared to the garbage we see on the idiot box today, the Andy Griffin show is like a new breath of fresh air. That being said to take this to a place of worship, could be very dangerous. People who are still searching for the Good news could be led to believe they just need to be a good person like Opie or Andy. And as Christians we know that without Jesus, being good enough is not a ticket to eternal paradise.

This is a mildly suspicious activity. While the Andy Griffith show was much more wholesome than most, it was not designed to give religious messages. All too often, I would think such tactics lead to allegorical methods. This is treading the Roman church path. This church may very well may not be doing that, but it is a danger in these types of circumstances. Allegories do not always turn out like "Pilgrim's Progress," but more like the nonsense of Origen.
