Faith and Pop Culture

In this new study series from the magazine Christianity Today, Faith and Pop Culture challenges our beliefs. Whether or not we like it, movies, TV, the internet is all here to stay. As believers, we need to know how to live in this culture and still be relevant. We also need to have discernment in what we watch.

The study looks at the following areas and how they fit into our belief system:
1. Movies
2. Books
3. Sports
4. TV
5. Entertainment

I err on the side of avoiding media that might be questionable, but I have learned not be judgemental if others. Everyone has their own struggles, and it's not up to me to decide what people should or shouldn't do. This study is a good springboard toward a discussion on the influence of media and how to deal with it. This is definitely best for a small group study.
