The Christian and Fiction

As Christians, we are to go into everything with a Biblical epistemology – worldview – which should define our opinions, our likes, and what we think about. I have a feeling that most people would agree, at least in principle, about this. Our worldview defines who we are and what we are.

Do we take this stand in everything – even in the books we read? Do we pay attention to what we are reading when it comes to fiction? Do we pay attention to the content we are mentally ingesting?

We are to do all things for the glory of God (Isa. 43:7; 1 Pet. 4:11). Our goal in life should be to glorify God and enjoy Him forever (1 Cor. 6:20; Mat. 5:16). If we truly believe this is God’s will for us, then we will understand there are some things that we, as believers, can’t read. And no, I’m not going to give you a list of authors or books to avoid. I don’t want to be legalistic: read this, don’t read that, a list of do’s and don’ts.
