Hi again, Susan, Now I’ve watched, here goes my reaction to your post;
After giving the folks like Donald Wildmon’s AFA (AFA also sells a family-friendly internet filter for an annual fee of $49.95.) a couple of decades to influence the cleaning up of the air waves I think they’ve done a, excuse my French here, Susan, piss poor job! I have to say if anything they’ve made it worse for the true church by giving the illusion that there is a way to take the powers of the air over for good.
So church members keep on paying the bills and surfing the channels for “something decent” to watch all the while getting flashed in the face with putridness of ALL kinds.
I do think that we have to point it out that this is abhorrent sinful behavior, but I think these folks (not 100% of them), AFA and FOX are pharisees who want to take us under the law again, I think they’re pseudo conservatives who want to make over the world for the kingdom-now-theology that will lead (they hope?)to Antichrist setup in the one world order of “peace and safety/ security” (that is until the mark of the beast is trotted out).
It is so complex how the forces of antichrist work all the angles, liberal/conservative, right/left, R&D.
Personally I’ve never been more defrauded than when I’ve watched and listened to the prurient news reports that O’Rielly, Hannity, etc. and the prom queen–leg crossing–high heeled beautiful talking heads, with the defrauding “news” film footage of the things FOX is “outraged” about. Visit the website and get the most titillating stories on their sidebars and advertisements as well as their Murdoch network and pornography connections. It just doesn’t wash to me.
A controversy stops existing when people refuse to watch. That’s the only solution.
Christians watching TV, just deactivate the 95% of channels that offend Jesus or stop enriching the makers of those shows with pay subscriptions. We’ve been lead to believe that our “Christian” dollar is valuable to these people, but that is a lie. These people who make TV of this kind have no need for our money, they want to make the church just as dirty as the world.
We do have choices, and they are cut and dried, dear friend, we can cut off the offending limb or pluck out the offending eye, but we’re not going to stop the networks from putting this life offending–junk on the air. Jesus Christ’s kingdom is not of this world. “Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil”, I echo in prayer for the true church not made with hands.:)
