“TV = your new ‘god’ [small–g] – 201”…Blog. [2/2]
*** (1Chronicles 5:25) And they sinned against the God of their fathers, and went lusting after the gods of the people of the land, whom God ‘destroyed’ before them.
*** (Isaiah 28:13) But the Word of Jehovah was to them = precept on precept, = precept on precept; = line on line, = line on line; = here a little, = there a little; = that they might go, = and fall backward, = and be broken = and snared = and taken.
*** (Jeremiah 10:14) Every man is stupid for lack of knowledge; every refiner is put to shame by the graven image; for his molten image is a lie, and no breath is in them.
With the advent of the TV… circa 1950’s… so was the invention of the TV tray. The family unit that sat around the ‘Dinner Table’… and ‘communicated’ with each other. Then they moved ‘before’ their new god [small–g]… the TV! The parents traded the interpersonal socialization of their children for… whatever ‘Agenda’… the TV provided. When I attended high school… there was a suggested reading list… for those planning to go on to college. Along with a decent ‘GPA’, there was also a ‘Foreign Language’ component necessary. Wow… how things have changed. Last year in my county over 3,5oo students receive “Certificates of Completion”… instead of a “High School Diploma!” Does anyone… thing think that the TV; might have had something to do with the ‘Dumbing Down’ of America…? Most any of the TV programs pattern the; “Works of the Flesh”… as ‘Normal’ behavior. Even law enforcement is portrayed with a; ‘Quazi-Morality’… catching criminals; but practicing… ‘Permissible Sexual Immorality’… among the law enforcement; both men & women.
*** (Galatians 5:19-20-21) Now the works of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity, promiscuity,
(Gal 5:20) idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, rivalry, jealously, outbursts of anger, quarrels, conflicts, factions,
(Gal 5:21) envy, murder, drunkenness, wild partying, and things like that. I am telling you now, as I have told you in the past, that people who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
*** (1Corinthians 16:22) If anyone doesn't love the Lord, let him be ‘Damned!’ Our Lord comes!
*** (Exodus 20:7) You ‘shall not’ take the name of Jehovah your God in vain. For Jehovah; will not hold him guiltless; that takes His name in ‘vain’.
How many times… have you heard the term “God Damn”… or “Jesus”, or “Christ”… used in derogatory tone on the TV. Such language was not allowed before; nor any type of Curse Words! Censors would not allow such ‘Kurt & Foul’ language on TV. ‘Leave it to Beaver’… had the parents sleeping in two separate beds. TV today has ‘adulterous sex’ and even ‘same sex’ romping in the same bed. The censors have allowed ‘more’ profanity and sexual suggestions… so it seems that… “Nothing is Taboo” anymore! What happened to “Shame & Blushing?” Shame has become a thing to be ‘touted’; and ‘blushing’ has been replaced with makeup… because ‘no one’ blushes anymore! Sexuality gesturing is just part of the makeup of most TV programs. Surely everyone has seen the TV ads for… ‘Girls Gone Wild?’
*** (Matthew 24:38-39) For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered into the ark.
(Matt 24:39) And they did not know until the flood came and took them all away. So also will be the coming of the Son of Man.
*** (Genesis 6:5) And Jehovah [God] saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was ‘only’ evil; ‘continually’.
*** (Luke 17:28-29-30) So also as it was in the days of Lot: they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built;
(Luke 17:29) but the day Lot went out of Sodom; it rained fire and brimstone from the heaven and ‘destroyed’ them all.
(Luke 17:30) Even so it shall be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.
*** (Matthew 5:13) You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt loses its savor, with what shall it be salted? It is no longer good for anything, but to be thrown out and to be trodden underfoot by men.
What ‘good’ thing… have you learned in your “Social Interaction” from the TV…? Sure, there are those… ‘Do Good-errs’ programs where they; the community, builds a house for a wounded veteran or some family with a handi-capped child. Even the history channel ‘said’… that they were only about 87% accurate…! But they ‘did not’ tell you what… “13%” was inaccurate…! The few programs about the Bible have been so very… “Grossly Inaccurate”… that is seems like the ‘authors and producers’ have; “Never read the Bible!” Those CSI programs… are also “Scientifically Inaccurate”… but are produced to; “Fool the Fools”… who would ‘contemplate’ a crime. And don’t get me started on the… “NEWS”…! Remember… “Politics”… is the worlds’ largest “Religion”… and its ‘devotees’ will… “Lie to further their Candidate”…!
*** (Ephesians 5:9-10-11) For the fruit of the Spirit consists of every form of goodness, righteousness, and “TRUTH”.
(Eph 5:10) Determine what pleases the Lord,
(Eph 5:11) and have nothing to do with the unfruitful works of darkness. Instead, ‘expose’ them for what they are.
*** (Galatians 5:22-to-26) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
(Gal 5:23) gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against such things.
(Gal 5:24) Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified their flesh with its passions and desires.
(Gal 5:25) If we live by the Spirit, let us also be guided by the Spirit. [Luke 6:46]
(Gal 5:26) Let us stop being arrogant, provoking one another and envying one another.
Please allow me to “Ask You”… Do ‘Any’ TV programs… ‘FIT’… into these models of ‘behavioral thinking’… for those “Born Again by the Holy Spirit of God?” … “Yes = or = No”…? Have you noticed the push for… “Adolescent Sexuality”… on the TV…? “Younger & Younger”… is the agenda of most programs. Young girls used to play with dolls; but TV leads them down the road of younger Sexuality… without ‘any’ parental restraints or prohibitions. Teen sex is the norm; even in the elementary schools; along with a thriving drug trade. No wonder there are Police resource officers; not only in the high schools; but even in the ‘elementary’ schools. “Jane Eyre” used to be a favorite of high school girls; but she had been replaced with… “Hanna Montana!”

This Christmas… was not celebrated by over… “55,000,000–million ‘Innocent Babies’ … Killed in their American Mothers Wombs… by Abortion!” You readily hear about… “Women’s Rights” and the… “Roe-v-Wade” Supreme court decision… but… “NEVER”… about the Innocent Babies… “Killed”… Do You…? TV had keep it a ‘State Secret’… simply by Not Mentioning “IT!
*** (Genesis 4:8-9-10) And Cain talked with his brother Abel. And it happened when they were in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel and killed him.
(Gen 4:9) And Jehovah said unto Cain, Where is your brother Abel? And he said, I do not know. Am I my brother's keeper?
(Gen 4:10) And He [God] said, What have you done? The ‘voice’ of your brother's blood cries to Me [God], from the ground.
*** (Isaiah 26:21) For behold, Jehovah comes out of His place; to punish the people of the earth for their iniquity; the earth also shall reveal her blood, and shall no more cover her dead.
“Whose your ‘Daddy’ – 101?”…Blog.
Where do you go from Here…? Just perhaps a serious revamp of your “Thought Life”…? Do your priorities consist of; spending time with “Jesus Your Lord”… in His Holy Word… before ‘Anything Else’…? Yes, before the TV or the News or your Cell Phone or Yes… even before you turn on your Computer…? Who runs your life… “Jesus and His Holy Word”… or… “All” these other… “Toys”…?
*** (Mark 1:35) And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.
*** (Philippians 2:5)Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
*** (Philippians 4:6-to-6) Never worry about anything, but in every situation let your petitions be made known to God in prayers and requests, with thanksgiving.
(Php 4:7) Then God's peace, which goes far beyond anything we can imagine, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
(Php 4:8) Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is fair, whatever is pure, whatever is acceptable, whatever is commendable, if there is anything of excellence and if there is anything praiseworthy-keep thinking about these things.
(Php 4:9) Likewise, keep practicing these things: what you have learned, received, heard, and seen in me. Then the God of peace will be with you.
*** (2Corinthains 10:3-to-6) Of course, we are living in the flesh, but we do not fight in a fleshly way.
(2Co 10:4) For the weapons of our warfare are not those of the flesh. Instead, they have the power of God to demolish fortresses. We tear down arguments
(2Co 10:5) and every proud obstacle that is raised against; the knowledge of God, taking ‘every’ thought captive; in order ‘to obey’ Christ.
(2Co 10:6) We are ready to ‘punish’ every act of disobedience [Proverbs 28:13 & 1John 1:5-to-10] when your ‘obedience’ is complete.
*** (Mark 1:17) And Jesus said to them, Come after Me and I will make you fishers of men.

*** (Isa 32:17) And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the service of righteousness; shall be quietness and hope forever.
