Confession: Sometimes we watch religious TV
Britton watches Jimmy Swaggart . Jim likes to watch the Gaither Homecoming videos. Isn’t funny that after all of these years these things still exist? New content is created that is exactly the same feel as it was when our parents were kids.
Also, Jim wants to go to a Benny Hinn Crusade.
Nick discovers GodTube, and realizes its mostly a bunch links back to YouTube.
Britton is going to sign up for the free PureFlix trial in hopes of finding Christian film makers making quality cinema.
Do we need Christian alternatives?
Christians have a bad habit of playing cultural catch-up. Instead of pushing a medium forward, we copy what the mainstream culture does. GodTube is christian version of YouTube, and PureFlix is a Christian version of Netflix. Neither copy does anything better than the original, so why do it? Should we be a part of the mainstream culture, contributing our content to what they do?
Do they still believe that? Purity Rings
Purity rings are a part of christian youth culture. After a long curriculum in christian sex ed, which basically abstinence – students are given a purity ring? But how many stay virgins?
