“R-rated”

In my early years as youth minister I told my students on a retreat that Pam and I had attended the movie “The Big Chill.” A couple of the students were siblings raised in a very strict home with very protective parents. They realized the movie was rated “R” and, in their (parents) opinion, no Christian should ever attend an “R” rated movie. I (at 30 years of age) and my adult wife were being judged because of our entertainment choices. I immediately thought: “have you ever read the Old Testament?”

Today’s scripture is part of a violent, low ethic, “R-rated” narrative in King David’s story. The Bible has its “R-rated” elements. Even “The Passion of Christ” movie was “R-rated” because of the crucifixion violence graphicly displayed by the director of that movie. I think one of the strength’s of the Bible is the presentation, “warts and all” of these characters. They are deeply flawed and we should not “sanitize” these stories. Today’s scripture is rated “R” for REAL.
