A.1.c. The Christian and the theatre.

General Comments

Question 1: Ought Christians participate in an activity whith apparently asks them to embrace hypocrisy while opening them to great temptations of egocentricity?

Question 2: The theatre, and acting in particular, is so sensual at itsbase. It's bound to destroy any spiritual balance in life.

Question 3: Evil is all around us in this world. How can Christians portray evil, or present evil characters onstage, and remain true servants of God?

Question 4: Is there,or can there be developed, a distinctive kind of safe performance environment in which Christian artists who want to do plays can protect themselves from temptations?

Question 5: Why would a practicing Christian even want to be involved with theatre?
