Controversy

Should Church Leaders Watch "Game of Thrones"?

OK… how would YOU answer this question? John Piper says the following: Piper gives 12 reasons why you shouldn’t. One of those reasons is that when if watch Game of Thrones, you are essentially, recrucifying Christ.

Christ died to purify his people. It is an absolute travesty of the cross to treat it as though Jesus died only to forgive us for the sin of watching nudity, and not to purify us for the power not to watch it. He has blood-bought power in his cross. He died to make us pure. He “gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession” (Titus 2:14). If we choose to endorse or embrace or enjoy or pursue impurity, we take a spear and ram it into Jesus’s side every time we do. He suffered to set us free from impurity.
What do you think of Piper’s answer? Do you agree? An overstatement, or spot on?
