The Spear Dilemma

By now I doubt that any Christian with internet access is unaware of the controversy surrounding the casting of a gay activist to play Nate Saint in the movie "The End of the Spear". I've received emails urging me to boycott this movie. I've read numerous blog entries urging the same.

While I hardly go see many movies, this is one I'm planning to attend. Of the countless online commentaries I've read, the one that most summed up my own thoughts on the issue was "On Spears, Brotherly Love, and Being in the World (but Not of It)"

This article also provides some helpful links to others who have commented on this disturbing issue.

We live in interesting times.

Update: My comments to the above referenced post can be found here.

  1. Hi, again -

    I just read your "spear" post and read your comment to the other blog. I agree wholeheartedly with you. I had not heard that.

    In fact, a good Christian blogging buddy of mine TCS, over at Believing Thomas, just wrote a favorable post about this movie last Friday (I'm sorry, Rebecca, I don't have the link to that particular post, but it's close to "the top").

    Hope you have a great weekend, girl.

    Grace & Peace,
