dear emily,

while playing bridge with some friends, one asked if any of us had seen any
good movies.  another friend recommended a comedy.   i begged to differ,
mentioning that it had a pretty strong "R" rating.   she countered with the
thought that it was hilarious and really only deserved a mild "R" rating.

i spouted without thinking, "you're either "R", or you "Rn't."

love,
lea

Oh you are too cute. I like the verse from Philippians, one of my favorites, actually.

The Holy Spirit is expressed through your God-given humor! I wonder if I could possibly keep your great line in mind against a future similar opportunity...

Playing bridge. Seems like another world to me.

I am not sure about the ratings ... who sets the ratings, do you trust their assessment? I don't take any notice of them. I look up the reviews and decide on that basis whether a movie is worth going to ... not that I go to many.

Your scripture verse is a good one to bear in mind.

I vaguely remember that even "The Hiding Place" had an "R" rating. One certainly should do his or her homework before seeing a movie where the images and ideas contained therein will remain.

There's very little any more that gets a G or PG rating. And, while I can handle a wee bit of language, most of the R stuff is either overtly sexual or violent - - neither of which makes for a gentle & quiet spirit.

Blessings,

A movie can be rated 'R' for a lot different reasons, but when a comedy is rated 'R' it's usually not a good sign. (Maybe I could rephrase that...it "rn't" a good sign.)

I like the idea of you playing bridge. I used to enjoy the thrill of concentration of the game. My brother taught me. Now my head isn't fit for that challenge anymore, but I still like to read the Norwegian bridge magazine. Some of my friends are still hanging on.

I wouldn't exactly know what an R rated movie is. I presume it's content isn't fit for children, and by that I'd take it as a sign "not fit for Christians" either.

I think we gradually are getting used to watching a lot of filth.And filth is rubbing off on the watcher. It's so sad really how we are seduced inch by inch, step by step.
