  1. Well stated…we as Christians let this side by more than we should. My blood is boiling over the comment from the gal that sent you the message about judging others, shame on her. Thank Heidi for what your response was, and we absolutely should not want to be of this world as Christians. I love you Heidi and thank you for standing up for Christ!

  2. Yes, preach! I am in complete agreement with you and I have also experienced Christians trying to explain away their decision to participate in things they know they should not – I have also had these conversations with myself, when my heart has decided to rebel and be disobedient.

    Please continue to hold us accountable as a sister-in-Christ, as we should also hold you accountable. Thank you for speaking out in love, because as the word of God tells us we MUST:

    “…present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” (Romans 12:1-2)

  3. I agree. I did not grow up in a Christian home although we did attend church some. I was allowed to watch and listen to whatever. When I was saved, letting go of negative entertainment was obvious. The battle for my mind and right thoughts has been intense and purposeful. I have been surprised by the lack of “getting” this… The Bible clearly tells me to renew my mind. What I watch and listen to does effect me- no ifs, ands, or buts. This “nice” brand of Christianity where everything goes reminds me of drug users- very passive, confusing, against any authority. It is sick.

  4. As always, Amen & Amen! I also believe in this world today we as sisters & brothers in Christ are to encourage & exhort one another! That being said, the apostle Paul states clearly that the grace of God teaches Godliness, in Titus 2:11-14, ” for the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lust, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deeds and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.” First in this passage, Grace teaches us to say no to ungodliness & worly passion. Second, grace teaches us to live self-controlled, upright, godly lives. Afterall, temperance is a spiritual fruit! Third, grace teaches us to look forward to the appearing of Jesus Christ. Fourth, grace reminds us that Jesus died to redeem us and purify us from all wickedness. Fifth and last, Grace teaches us that we ought to be eager to do what is good. The true grace of God is the freedom from our old rebel carnal nature. It enables the transformation from immorality to a godliness that pleases & mimics the character of our Heavenly Father & Lord Jesus Christ. Living in the grace of God does not give us a license to sin, but instructs us and gives us the ability to live in accordance with that instruction. True grace & peace to you, Heidi, as well as your family for allowing yourself to be a vessel of God’s light; And to all our fellow believers!

  5. Heidi,
    Thank you so much for taking a strong stand against Deadpool and other forms of ungodly entertainment. We are to judge one another within the Church (the Body of Christ), and it seems that the offense that rears its ugly head (“Don’t JUDGE me!”) reflects a sinful attitude of heart. Philippians 4:8 is a great “filter” for what to put into our hearts and minds. One thing that I find a bit contradictory though, is that as I am scrolling through some of your blog posts, there are ads playing on your sight for Game of Thrones, the HBO series (one is playing right now at the bottom of the post I am commenting about- just above the comments). From what I have read about it, it is full of copious amounts of sexual immorality (and that’s putting it politely). You might check your advertising policy/agreement.

    1. Thank you, Aimee! We don’t have complete control over that, but I will be sure and talk to our ad company and let them know that’s not okay with us!
