"The key to understanding the Bible is to look for Jesus in the Bible. Jesus is the hero of the Bible. If you read the Bible and don't find Jesus, re-read it! The Bible has one hero, His name is Jesus; one villain, that is Satan; one problem, that is sin; one solution, that is salvation. That is what the Bible is all about." -Dr. Adrian Rogers

Exercise Discretion with Entertainment (8/22/2010)

I hardly watch any television anymore. Why? Because there's nothing good on anymore. By "good," I don't mean that the shows aren't as entertaining as the used to be. I meant that they are oozing with sin. There is no sense of right and wrong. Not only is Christianity mocked entirely, but the people in these shows laugh in the face of God. Marriage and family, as God created them to be, are ridiculed. The profanity and blasphemy in these shows is outrageous.

If you think the things I listed above are bad, that's just the beginning. And not only do the lost watch these shows, but Christians do also. Are you as appalled as I am?! Modern television should have no part in the Christians life. If you think I've lost my mind and am being a little closed-minded, take it up with God. I'm not the one that deemed those things sinful; God is.

If you are a child of God, it's time you took a stand for His Word. Don't watch that filth any longer! Do not condone those things! Society says that blasphemy is just a word. Do you believe that? Because I don't. You wouldn't like it if they threw your mothers name around like that. So why do you tolerate God's name being used that way?

Come on, it's time to wake up! Don't buy into that filth any longer. Listen to what Dr. Adrian Rogers said in the e-mail devotional I received just a few days ago:
The most dangerous thing on television today, in my estimation, is the sitcom. Do you know what they’re doing? They’re getting you to laugh at sin. In fact, a Christian television and film writer attended a producers’ workshop one day. One of the keynote speakers was one of TV’s most successful producers of sitcoms. In his address, he stated that in order to have a commercially successful production, the characters in a sitcom must violate at least three of the Ten Commandments. How tragic, but what an opportunity for people like you and me to take a stand for the truth and for the glory of God in the film and television industry.
