Kirk Cameron Talks The Power Of The Media And The Need For Christians

What if, in your job, every time you opened up about your faith or stood for godly morals, you were shot down and ostracized? Many people would say, "Leave that job!" And that's been the case for many Christians in Hollywood.

But Kirk Cameron, first known from the hit show "Growing Pains," says that's exactly why we need Christians in the media.  In this exclusive Gospel Herald interview, Cameron is asked about the special challenges of being a Christian actor and what advice he would offer others in the same position. 

I would say there's a very important role that people of faith, Christians in particular, need to fill. And that's the role of Christianity in the media...Media impacts so many people and shapes so much of our culture -- just think of music, TV, fashion -- the media is the gatekeeper for the news that we hear. We need Christians not to run away from Hollywood and the media, but to infiltrate and come on in and join us and use these powerful tools to advance what is good and true and right. - See more at: http://www.gospelherald.com/articles/60695/20151216/exclusive-interview-kirk-cameron-opens-up-about-faith-family-and-how-christians-can-keep-christ-in-christmas.htm#sthash.RDSTBYtR.dpuf

Cameron and his sister, Candace Cameron Bure, have been excellent examples of this. Kirk has consistently stood up for Christ and most notably for Biblical marriage, getting quite slammed for it in the media. Candace is a cohost on The View--a predominantly liberal news talk show--and has faithfully stood up for Jesus, with bold stances on virginity, Creationism, and religious freedom.

We are thankful to them for giving a shining light in the often dark media! What do you think about Christians in the media and Kirk Cameron's advice? Let us know your thoughts in the Comments! Thank you!
