Shocking, no...sad, yes

Mark Junkans

Last night we went the see Happy Feet at the theater. There was a sign on the box office window that said something like "No child under 6 allowed in R movies after 6 pm." My first question is, who are the parents bringing their 6 year old kids to the R movies before 6 pm? My second question is, who are the parents bringing their 7 year old kids to the movies after 6 pm? I shouldn't be shocked at all, but the simplest things still amaze me about our culture. Imagine a young child watching some of the horror movies out, or the ones that barely make the R rating.
The sad thing is, that these movies are probably nothing compared to the violence that some of them see in real life in the home or on the streets outside their home.
Mark 9:42   “And if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a large millstone tied around his neck."
God, keep me from leading any small child into temptation by my words or my actions. Help us to work to help those children who are brought up in homes where domestic violence, gangs and drugs are a daily experience. Help us work to bring grace and peace to those who need it.
