Americans Embrace Bible-based Films, TV Shows
Recent trends in Americans' movie and television viewing habits reveal that they are drawn to Bible-based shows. It began with the History Channel's The Bible, the most-watched television cable TV show of 2013, which paved the way for three biblical movies set to be released in theaters this year.

The Washington Times writes,

The first, Son of God, is produced by the married couple who brought The Bible to the History Channel and into households across the country — producer Mark Burnett and actress Roma Downey.

The couple admits that they were astounded by the popularity of the television show. "We really believed that people would show up in droves, but 100 million people was a big number," Burnett said of the 10-hour miniseries’ total audience. "Before we knew those results, we’d already started on Son of God." ...

Jim Lincoln, you quote your favorite Bible Teacher: Gil Rugh said or, wrote:
"God has spoken as concerns His expectations of His Church. This first epistle of Paul to Timothy is written against the backdrop of his concerns for false teaching and false doctrine infiltrating the church at Ephesus. These same problems continue to face the church of God down to our day.. Anytime God speaks He expects to be understood and requires obedience..The Bible is objective truth given by God to the church which is then required and responsible to understand it, proclaim it, and defend it as given."

How about to live it? Doesn't the Bible say that anybody who names the name of Jesus must depart from iniquity? And where does the Bible say God expects all Christians to have 100 percent perfect understanding of scripture, and then to "defend" that understanding, whatever that means, but it sounds kind of like fighting words to me.

These same problems continue to face the church of God down to our day as the schemes of the devil go unchanged.
Anytime God speaks He expects to be understood and requires obedience. As God has said through Paul, the church is the household of God meaning those in the church are members in the family of God by their common faith in Jesus Christ. The Bible is objective truth given by God to the church which is then required and responsible to understand it, proclaim it, and defend it as given.

There are children and adults in the world living by/at garbage dumps, and surviving off what they can gather which is still of use. In the same way, I believe many unbelievers are spiritually hungry. Picking through the refuse of a secular sinful society and finding little scraps of truth to nurture their souls.

Make no mistake, God will thoroughly purge His threshing floor — with or without our help, He will glean every little piece of wheat; He will reap where He hasn't sown; and will collect all His children unto Himself leaving no stone unturned.

__________________________________________________

"I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire."

~ Matthew 3:11-12 KJV

"The full soul loatheth an honeycomb; but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet."

~ Proverbs 27:7 KJV

Only because they seek for answers or a version of truth brought about by entertainment instead of seeking it from God Himself or His Word

I think the church would be more effective in pooling its resources to be a living witness right where they are at, and when they encounter the billion restrictions to neighbor helping neighbor, they might even show up at a city council meeting and leave the four walls of the sanctuary, to be a seen presence in the community! the movies are inconsequential to me. people need to see flesh and blood real people with the gospel.

God is able to reap where He has not sown, therefore if the TV shows and movies are a bit misconstrued God is still able to reap a harvest of souls for His Kingdom — praises to God, hallelujah!

Matthew 25:24-30 KJV
