Movies Create Violent Poeple?

Following the killing of 12 people at the screening of “the Dark Knight Rises” in Colorado, US, questions are being asked as to the role that violent movies and video games play in developing violent people.

Dr Ted Baehr from movieguide.org said: The fact is that this is an evil act committed by an evil person, who did not know the truth of Jesus Christ that would set him free from such wickedness. The answer is not more laws, the answer is not to banish movies, nor neuroscience programs, nor weapons that can be used to protect, but rather to get the Word of God out. Because ‘faith comes through hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ (Romans 10:17).’ For more on his comments click here.

Dr Ted Baehr, from movieguide.org also said now was the time to speak to movie makers to ensure Christian values are instilled in movies. He said now was a tremendous opportunity to encourage movie makers.

Resistant Thinking’s Cameron Spink, also wrote a blog on what people should make of the killings as did Bill Muehlenberg from CultureWatch titled Turning around a culture of violence.
