Letter to the Editor

Play went too far

Monday, March 19, 2007

Dear Editor,

A short note to inform you we will not be attending any more of the Community Theaters productions unless we can be assured that the moral content of the production will be on a higher plane.

The cuss words were unnecessary but the scene on forgiveness was very offensive. True forgiveness comes from the heart and is not some light flippant thing. This scene made a mockery of the forgiveness that God gives to us when we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Savior.

To illustrate how great that is, the Bible says that "He removes our sins as far as the east is from the west, He casts them into the depths of the deepest sea and remembers them against us no more." He also expects us as believers who have been forgiven to forgive others who have injured us in ANY way.

"If you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will I forgive you your trespasses against me."

 Please don't ask Christian people to act in plays that are (or should be) objectionable to them.

Also I know there are many others who feel just as I do and will not be attending any future plays unless they can be assured of nothing objectionable in the content. Surely there are those kind of plays available. We all have been loyal patrons in the past. Please don't let us down in the future.

Finally "Anything Goes" is a picture of the decadence of our society as a whole and illustrates WHY God's judgments have been falling on our nation and are getting more severe as time goes by.

Destruction by hurricanes, tornados, major flooding, forest fires, prairie fires and the severe drought of the last several years. The Bible teaches us that we must walk circumspectly before our God.

If you read your Bible, you will see that God wants His children to have wonderful times of merriment and joy and fun. But, he expects us to do so without violating his holiness.
