TGC’s ‘Best Movies of 2020’ List is Filled With Sexual Scenes, Genitals, and Foul Language

It should go without saying that The Gospel Coalition (TGC) has absolutely nothing to do with the gospel or any other biblical teaching or exhortation. The Gospel Coalition is nothing more than an outlet for the carnal consumption of worldly influence into the Church by compromised Evangelicals who are bound together by their propensity toward embracing the culture. It is, in fact, The Gospel-less Coalition.

So it should come as no surprise, then, that TGC’s ‘Best Movies of 2020’ list is filled with movies depicting sexual innuendos, nude scenes including genital shots, and blasphemous foul langauge.

Their list, which can be seen at this link (cover your eyes), was written by Brett McCracken who openly states that he “chose only movies that are in some way edifying or redemptive—depicting goodness, truth, or beauty in ways Christian viewers can celebrate—several films on my list are rated R or TV-MA and should be viewed with caution and discernment.”

First on the list is Nomadland. According to McCracken, Nomadland is “quietly observational, blurring the lines between drama and documentary,” and “compelling and tender.” On the other hand, Common Sense Media describes the movie as containing “nonsexual nudity when Fern floats in the water” showing breasts, abdomen, genitals, legs.

Some might argue that that isn’t horrible. But the next movie, Sound of Metal, described by McCracken as “remarkable” with a “surprising gospel resonance.”

This “surprising gospel resonance” — as McCracken puts it — is described by Common Sense Media as a “graphic drawing/tattoo of a naked woman,” scenes depicting “full-frontal,” with “passionate kissing” and mentions of “anal” sex.

Another movie, News of the World, that McCracken promotes contains, according to Common Sense Media, a scene where two actors “exchange meaningful glances, and the camera then cuts to a scene in which she’s in bed, covered by a sheet” where it is “implied that they had sex.”

Then, there is Small Axe: Lovers Rock which McCracken says reminded him “that we were made for embodied, communal closeness, not isolated distance.” Well, after reading the description from Common Sense Media, it’s easy to see why. The movie not only contains plenty of “kissing, flirting, and hand-holding,” but the characters “dance together suggestively, gyrating against each other,” while “placing their hands on each other’s behinds.” Also, a shower scene depicts a naked backside.

McCracken also praises The Assistant, which Common Sense Media reveals that one of the characters “cleans up what is suggested to be stains related to sexual activity from her boss’s couch.”

Several of these movies and other movies not mentioned here contain other graphic scenes including the glorification of violence, drugs and alcohol, and blasphemous foul language. But it should go without argument that the sexual and nude scenes in these movies are not meant for the eyes of Christians. To argue that these movies have some kind of “surprising gospel resonance” is biblical ignorance. The gospel is not rated R.
