In this episode, we talk at length about a theology of film, looking at the deeper meaning of various movies and discuss how Christians should watch movies. Oftentimes, we get hung up on the big 3 sins: sex, violence, and cussing. But what about “clean” movies that have super compelling and incredibly bad narratives--like pretty much every Disney princess movie ever made? We also talk about masculinity and the idolatry of marriage.

Theology in the Raw Conference - In Person or Online
At the Theology in the Raw conference, we will be challenged to think like exiles about race, sexuality, gender, critical race theory, hell, transgender identities, climate change, creation care, American politics, and what it means to love your democratic or republican neighbor as yourself. Different views will be presented. No question is off limits. No political party will be praised. Everyone will be challenged to think. And Jesus will be upheld as supreme.

Faith, Sexuality, and Gender Conference - Live in Boise or Stream Online

In the all-day conference, Dr. Preston Sprinkle dives deep into the theological, relational, and ministry-related questions that come up in the LGBTQ conversation.
