In Hollywood Be Thy Name, author Ray Comfort explores the reasons why the film industry, which once produced some godly films, has become predominantly anti-God. "The average Hollywood production," Comfort says, "uses the name of 'God' and 'Jesus Christ' more than the average sermon."
Comfort skillfully exposes the beliefs of Hollywood's elite, and explains how Hollywood is fueling our culture's hatred of Christianity and turning entire generations against Christ, hampering our evangelism efforts.
In the beginning Hollywood said, "Let there be light," and there was light. And there were cameras. And the spirit of Hollywood moved across the face of the earth. Hollywood created. It picked up unknowns from the soil of humanity and breathed into them the life of celebrity… a golden image, whose sole purpose was to bring in big money at the box office.
But something went terribly wrong.
In 1968 a serpent appeared in the garden. Movies became filled with blasphemy, adultery, and violence.
The bright light that once was became a gross darkness, and Hollywood began to suffer the ultimate delusion of grandeur. It enthroned itself as God and began to spout blasphemy against the heavens. Hollywood became a law unto itself. In answers to no one… not even God.
