The purpose of horror movies may be to give you a good scare, lots of gore and a good laugh if you enjoy watching others freak but they can push people into seeing the light.
Horror movies emphasize on dying, demons and vicious monsters that prey on unsuspecting people in the wrong place and suspecting victims trying to stop the raging evil even the dead spring back to life in some movies to attack the living and wander forever on the earth.
For those who have been questioning salvation or who are afraid of dying and being sent to Hell or between world’s horror movies may lead them to salvation. They will seek ministers and churches that can put them on a path to redemption even the saved may recommit to living a spirit filled life and to doing good works. For the saved may question whether or not they actually are saved.
Horror movies would be a good way for churches to bring the unsaved to salvation. Instead of trying to shield members from the evil that possesses the mind and the world around it showing horror movies would allow members an opportunity an outlet to express feelings on what would impact the soul to bring about destruction and pain to others. Small children should not be allowed to attend a showing of a horror movie at a church.
Horror movies often elaborate on the tale of an individual who goes on mutilation and killing sprees explaining to a degree the cause of that individual going insane and losing their humanity. Horror movies bring insight into the psyche of the self. They seem to point out that there is only a thin thread that keeps the sanity of an individual in check.
Churches who show horror movies can examine the issue of the movie and each character’s involvement and how those issues play out in today’s society. Salvation itself is often in question in horror movies. What makes a person feel they have salvation over another? How can their salvation make them feel they can conquer the evil that stands, crawls, jumps and lurks before them?
If someone thinks they are going to die they will usually pray. Horror movies can have the same effect on people. They want to make sure they are saved so if something happens to them, they won’t be going someplace that they don’t want to go.
