Gilligan's Bible Study |

TBC Staff

[TBC: We have alerted readers to such distractions as "The Beverly Hillbillies Bible Study." The same company has since produced a number of “Bible studies“ based on old television programs, including one of their latest: The Gilligan’s Island Bible Study.]

The Biblical principles are the Seven Deadly Sins, and the key scripture is
Mark:7:21-23: “For from within, out of men’s hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and make a man ‘unclean.’

See the seven deadly sins of our seven stranded Castaways as they finally get the chance to go home! But before they escape the island, predictably, Gilligan gets lazy, the Skipper becomes angry, the Professor grows prideful, Ginger incites lust, Mary Ann envies Ginger, Mr. Howell gets greedy and Lovey Howell gets gluttonous.

[TBC: This may be entertainment, but it certainly isn't a Bible study. Philippians:4:8 tells us, "Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." We certainly can't accomplish this by "thinking on" the lives of fictitious characters in a fictitious setting that is expressly designed to humorously entertain the secular world.]
