Can God be Found in Entertainment Culture?

Entertainment culture has a pretty bad reputation in Christian communities, but is there a way for us to find God when we go to the movies?

Even though there is a lot of brokenness in entertainment culture, we can’t help but point to something greater when we encounter a good story.

We tell stories over and over again about redemption, love, sacrifice, and hope. These all point back to the gospel story.

Why does this matter?

Because we can use it to start conversations about faith.

Watch the next Marvel movie you see with the gospel in mind and discover how it address values like the dignity of the human person, or the role of self-sacrifice in love. Talk about those themes with your family and friends, and bring them back to the root of those values – God.

Anytime we tell a good story, we can’t help ourselves. We end up telling stories of love, of redemption, and of hope.
