It is clear what the bible says about adultery and fornication, it is strictly forbidden. God expects those who are married to forsake all others and be intimate only with one another…

1 Corinthians 7:1-2 (NKJV)

It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband. 

Most of us also enjoy a good movie, television show or play, and appreciate a great performance from a talented actor or actress. Some of the movies, shows or plays have love scenes. It could range from a kiss…to partially clothed making out…to fully nude, erotic love scenes. I’m not talking about porn, I’m talking about the movies that are accepted and even awarded by the mainstream population.

Sometimes these actors and actresses are not only married, but profess to be Christians. Let me be clear that I AM NOT JUDGING THEIR FAITH OR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, but I do have a challenging question.


The kisses are real.

The touching is real.

Sometimes, the nudity is real.

Even if they aren’t having intercourse, they are having sexual contact with someone other than their husband or wife.

If you aren’t an actor, how do feel about your spouse kissing or touching someone else? Most people say “No Way!”. Now, how do you feel about your spouse getting paid to have sexual contact with someone else…again a definite, “No!”

Now here’s the real challenging question for us as Christians. It their intimate contact is considered by God to be sin, does watching it and enjoying it make us partakers with them? Is it shameful for us to talk about the scenes in our daily conversation? Consider this…

Ephesians 5:5-10 (NKJV)

 For this you know,[a] that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not be partakers with them. For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit[b] is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), 10 finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. 

Does God change the rules just because of our occupation? Does the fact that they are ‘acting’ mean it’s not real contact? And, if God considers it to be wrong, do we share in the sin when we watch, enjoy and share what we watched?

Has this become the ‘accepted’ open relationship?

Think about it. Pray about it. Feel free to reply and tell me what you think.

      1. He has great courage to assert his faith. NO doubt! My artistic evaluation of his movie choices is simply that he’s a bit cheesy, sappy. Definitely respect his faith. I think I’m confessing that I’m a movie snob.

  1. Well said! For me, I’ve learned I just cannot be a partaker. God said no. It’s one thing to be caught up in sin, it’s almost worse to be cheering it on as entertainment or enabling it with my money. A bit funny, but it was actually zombies and vampires that I felt the most convicted over. The Walking Dead, the Twilight series became very popular and I thought nothing of it until I realized what we are actually doing is promoting a rather perverse form of the resurrection, a dark counterfeit to all that I hold dear. It was funny in the sense that the Lord just kept bringing it to my attention in some humorous ways, like I nearly got mowed down in the street by an actual zombie parade.

  2. To answer your correctly asked questions; No God will never change Himself or His laws because He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
    Because they are acting it is real contact because many actors have said they have to get into the mood, feelings, sexual arousal of their character their playing in order make it a really good scene.
    Oh yes we are sinning when we watch and enjoy because we are leading ourselves into the temptation of getting aroused and to enjoy that sin means we are expressing what we truly think in our hearts! Thank you for the excellent bible study questions Minister Aldtric! God Bless, Deborah

  3. This is a real issue. People now hide under ‘acting’ a movie and involve in sexual exploits. The points you mentioned are critical and are true. Sometimes after acting those scenes, they go offset and start having immoral affairs.
    My own opinion is that God’s standard is already stipulated. So going beyond boundaries in order to act a blockbuster is yielding to sin.
    There are movies that are devoid of these amorous scenes and still pass the right message.
    Christians should do everything in moderation. When I mean ‘Christians’ I mean those who weigh options before involving in anything that might be detrimental to their moral life.

    Thanks for posting.

  4. I’ve wondered the same thing, but it’s so easy to just ignore it when it’s in PG movies. But after reading your questions, and especially the scripture you quoted, I suspect I won’t be able to ignore it anymore. I’m afraid a whole lot more movies are now ruined for me. lol

  5. I’m gonna go with its sin. At that moment you are thinking of someone not your spouse and are likely attracted by it admit it or not. We all know what Jesus said about looking.

  6. If you think about it, it’s really difficult to watch ANY movie without some sort of sin being thrown in your face. By watching a movie itself, I don’t believe I’m endorsing the actions of sin in it. I can denounce those sins that are there, but at the same time, appreciate the movie as a whole and even possibly, it’s message. I did respect Kurt Cameron for honoring his conviction to not actually kiss another woman, but instead, made arrangements so that it could be his ACTUAL wife he was kissing. He honored his conviction and the Lord by doing this. And, I agree with T.F. Thompson that so often some scenes are completely UNNESCESSARY and add absolutely NOTHING to the movie. Sometimes, I think they’re just added to raise the rating to hopefully reach a greater audience, which once again, is NOT necessary. If a movie is truly good, it WILL reach a greater audience by word of mouth! I cannot tell you how many times after, and even during a movie, I’ve expressed my disappointment when they’ve added such a scene to such a great movie. I’m always asking with disapproval, “Why ruin a good thing?”

  7. I have wondered this and believe like you-I stay away from most movies so as not to let them think what they are “doing” is ok or be a “partaker”… GREAT POST!

  8. We have grown so comfortably numb to sin it’s scary. Those love sins, honestly, could be left out of the movie or show. More often than not the director is like oh wait…we need a love scene. It’s just so disheartening. Coming from someone with a history of porn addiction, trust me when I say people do not realize what those love scenes are doing to their heart and mind.
    Great post brother!
