Posts Tagged ‘Mark Driscoll’

*Correction: the blog that is linked on this site is not actually affiliated with Christianity Today it was quoted by Christianity Today in one of their articles.  Thanks Larry for pointing this out.

There was a recent video sent around depicting Mark Driscoll preaching on the occult in the movie Avatar.  While I definitely saw a strident political leaning to the left, I believe he over generalizes when he declares that this it the most demonic movie of all time.  Christianity Today responded with a very good article to his critique of the movie. I do disagree slightly with the author’s point about how Avatar was only portraying a message against capitalistic greed because Cameron is known for his anti-capitalistic stance.  However, the author makes a solid case elsewhere in his critique.   I really liked his point about understanding an artist’s fictional world-especially Rowling’s works.
