The Base World of Hollywood and the Global Film Industry

Morality and absolutes do not exist in the base world of today’s Hollywood, which rejects the moral boundaries of the natural laws of Almighty God and His eternal, righteous (perfect) absolutes. In their reprobate mind, those who profess and practice these absolutes are evil and fascist (1 Peter 3:16). What further proof do we need than a petition for Roman Polanski? Over 100 individuals in the filmmaking community recently signed a document called “Polanski’s Petition.” For those who do not know who Roman Polanski is and what he has done, he raped a 13-year old girl in 1977 and fled the country to his native France to escape the charges brought against him. The Cannes Film Festival is the “holy of holies” for the godless elite. It is where the latest independent films describing the “cutting edge” of the licentious and debauched fantasy world make their début.

"Hollywood, which rejects the moral boundaries of the natural laws of Almighty God and His eternal, righteous (perfect) absolutes"

Today’s film industry absolutely despises Judean/ Christian values and any who hold them dear. Those Conservatives who believe their Bibles and hold to traditional, Judean/ Christian values - they are the ones who are usually portrayed as fascist, evil, intolerant and tyrannical monsters. These filmmakers have a godless bias and a slanderous agenda against such, and by their industry they seek to caricature, slander, defame and demonize all who line up with the Biblical account of Christianity. The Judean/ Christian culture is always the butt of their jokes and the villain of their stories.

The very ideals in which Hollywood and the film industry abhors and despises (John 3:19-20) are the very ideals which condemn Hollywood’s decadent lifestyles, weighing heavily on their guilty consciences.

Listen to what the Bible teaches about such individuals:

But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves (Jude 1:10).

But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption (2 Peter 2:12).

Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things (Philip. 3:19).

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them (Romans 1:28-32).

The Bizarro World of Hollywood

In the “Bizarro World” culture of Hollywood’s narcissistic elites, it is popular to pontificate against any who practice morality and faith in Almighty God. At the same time, the promotion of the basest of ideals is preferred (e.g., adultery, sodomy and multiplying marriages). They actually see themselves as role models and cultural trend-setters to be followed and worshiped in lockstep. Hollywood’s glamorization and glorification of youthful beauty and human talent is just a thin veil of flesh housing the sewer-like stench of their filthy deeds and superficial soul (Jer. 17:9; Matt. 15:16-20; Jude 1:10). Many today are deceived by this attractive cloak. They see only the tangible, visible appearance, while they are blind to their own wicked heart and godless actions (1 Tim. 4:1-3; 2 Tim. 3:1-6; Jude 1:4).

"Woe unto you Hollywood!"

Woe unto you Hollywood! Woe unto all that call evil good and good evil (Isaiah 5:20). They will not get by or away with it, and they will find it most sobering when they will have to give an account in the Day of Judgment to Almighty God! (Rev. 20:11-15)
It is our sincere desire that all of those in Hollywood would turn from their godless ways and look to Almighty God for His grace, mercy and forgiveness. All of God’s children who have been redeemed in Christ have done so and can testify to this fact (2 Cor. 5:17-19; Gal. 1:4, Eph. 2:1-9).
We can now sing from our hearts:
Amazing Grace, How sweet the sound, That saved a wretch like me,I once was lost, but now am found, Was blind but now I see.
In the end, Christ will either be our Savior or our Judge. Either way, it is our personal choice. Which do you prefer, and are you prepared to live with the consequences of your decision? Remember that if you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
