Why should the devil have all the good media?

There is a book by Philip Yancey called "I was just wondering." I imagine its a book for a person who wishes that they blogged but lives in a book world. Basically there are page and half to two page chapters where Yancey just talks about some of the things he's thought about but couldn't fill a whole book with. It was a book my short attention span really appreciated.

Anyhow, one of the chapters in this book (if I remember right, it's been a long time) is about Tolkien and C.S. Lewis and their creativity.

I think one of the things we believe as Christians is there is something un-christian about creativity. I feel like the more movies I watch, the more books I read, and the more time I spend on the internet, the more I feel like the media is un-christian. There is pornography everywhere, in all kinds of movies, all kinds of books, and all over the internet. There is inappropriate language, and violence and all kinds of craziness that many people in the church are completely numb to.

Once I realized my standards in entertainment were sadly low later in college I was shocked that I looked back at some pretty horrible movies I had seen with some of the pastors who had mentored me in High School.

I really think the media is about creativity. Writing is about creativity, and so are the movies and books we read.

I mean this to be less a comment on our numbness to the media than I do to remind us that creativity, and that the mediums we use like writing, movies, television, even the internet are not inherently wrong or evil.

I'm reminded of a song by Larry Norman "Why should the devil have all the good music?"

Should the devil have all the good media? All the good stories? All the good corners of the internet?
