Are Christians allowed to watch movies?  Some say that watching films is only an entertainment and is perfectly fine for Christians.  So they watch movies, musicals, and various other media entertainment.  They get angry when we talk against them.  Kindly advise me in this regard.  Please give me a proper answer to give them.


There are no scriptures against watching movies or other media entertainment, except the two that covers all that we do:

"So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." [1 Corinthians 10:31]

"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things." [Philippians 4:8]

If watching a movie or other media entertainment would not violate these two commands then it is not a sin.
