Today as I had my quiet time, I felt a random eructation come into my head.
Why is it that Hollywood across all aspects of TV and movies has to portray those of us that love Jesus as either some form of comical buffoons or crazy people?
I’ve been rewatching the office with The Man (one of the greatest shows of all time if you’ve never seen it) and the only reference to Jesus or religion they’re definitely has a negative tone to it. But it’s not like they are unique in that portrayal. On big Bang theory they betray a Sheldon’s mom as an over the top Texas Christian , Albeit with a slightly better heart than Angela on The Office but still over the top and crazy.
And every time there is a remotely religious character on Law&Order:SVU, they are absolutely some sort of crazy conservative almost cult-like
And I know that this is not really a big deal or even really important. But it’s just slightly irritating to me. And I kmow that there are lots of crazy religious followers out there. I just watched the Dateline about a whole group of them. And I know that there are a lot of people who may not be as outwardly crazy as the FLDS but can still be misrepresenting the love of Jesus.
But there is also a whole group of us a whole bunch of us who just love Jesus and really do our best to love others and shine his light. We want to live and perhaps live a more conservative way than other people but we don’t want to hurt other people, exclude other people, or any the other negative images that Hollywood portrays. We really do as The Bible says try our best to get along with everyone and love others. And I just wish that someone somewhere would put that version of us out for the world to see.
But I guess since Hollywood is not going to do that then it’s up to the small people like you and me to spread God’s love and light the best we can. Go, do that today!
