Is nudity in movies OK?

From “Ask Pastor John”:

The closer I get to death and meeting Jesus personally face to face and giving an account for my life and for the careless words that I have spoken (Matthew 12:36), the more sure I am of my resolve never intentionally to look at a television show or a movie or a website or a magazine where I know I will see photos or films of nudity. Never. That is my resolve. And the closer I get to death, the better I feel about that, and the more committed I become.

If you don’t want to be convicted, well….

The world does not need more cool, hip, culturally savvy, irrelevant copies of itself. That is a hoax that has duped thousands of young Christians. They think they have to be hip, cool, savvy, culturally aware, watching everything in order not to be freakish. And that is undoing them morally and undoing their witness.

Remember though, we are not defined by what we abstain from but by Who we are committed to.  Your position in Christ should define your behavior; not because you “cannot” but because you “would not” do anything else!
