The War Against Jesus Christ
There is a war going on around us, that most people can not see. It is a war for your soul. A war between God and Satan. People fuel this war by constantly partaking in it. The war is against Jesus Christ and his Holy word. Satan's only goal is to keep people out of heaven. His number one tool for this is the entertainment industry. The entertainment industry was not created to entertain people or to make money, it's soul purpose is to get people to hell.
Do not be deceived by the seductive allure of the entertainment industry, it is pure evil. It appeals to peoples laziness, it requires no effort to sit back and be entertained. In this sedated state a person is open to suggestion. Take television for instance, the screen flickers at the exact rate it takes to put the brain into a hypnotic state. This is no accident, the people that developed television had a deep understanding of the human brain. This is also why they used subliminal messages. They knew how to brain wash people. They could play a message backwards and the advanced human brain could pick it up forwards. This is how they brainwashed people early on, to accept evil ungodly things. This would prepare people for increasingly controversial things later on. Such as single parent families, alcohol use, drug use, homosexuality, abortion, etc. When TV first started, you had shows like: Leave it to Beaver and Lacy. These were pretty safe shows depicting wholesome family values. Over time the limits of decency would be pushed. Where dysfunctional families were cool and fun to laugh at. A show called Rosanne comes to mind. As a boy I watched an episode that had what I believe is the first same sex kiss on TV. This was mainstream news at the time. It aired in 1994. Back then this was controversial. Within 3 years, there were shows with homosexual characters. The first I believe was a show called Ellen, with Ellen Degeneres coming out of the closet as a lesbian. Again this was mainstream news. society was being tested on weather they would put up with this or not. There was not enough backlash to stop the introduction of the first gay male character on TV. Actually it was 2 and the show was called Will and Grace. This introduced America to having homosexual men in their home every week. I want to take a moment to establish that God is very opposed to these things. We are suppose to have good Godly homes that are safe for children to grow up in. Millions of children were exposed to these shows and if you think it had no impact on their life, you are mistaken. You may think that I am being old fashion, then good because I am. America was founded on Biblical principles and morality and it worked. Now we have almost no principals and morality and society is falling apart. This can be studied and proven historically accurate. The bible preaches against this kind of immorality and tells us to abstain from it. Nowadays it is rare to see a normal family on TV. During my childhood, I saw people hanging out in bars, having violent shoot outs, doing drugs, all on TV. You will never see anything about the Lord Jesus Christ on mainstream television. Satan puts this filth in front of people to pollute their spirit and make them hostile towards God. God is always mocked on TV. He is never shown in a positive light.
Movies are even worse than TV. Just about anything goes in movies. Since people pay to watch them, movies can go even further into depravity than television. Movies are where many Americans were first exposed to public nudity (onscreen). This really helped drive the pornography industry. Many people saw murder for the first time in movies. This stuff is common now, but it has a detrimental affect on the brain. Movies debunk biblical truths all the time and help create a culture of atheists. I also believe that Hollywood's obsession with self has helped spurn the social media craze. Anyone can now be a star and can be like God. Who needs God, when you can be your own God. The movie industry helps drive popular culture, where movie plots become the norm. Like Animal House and other wild young party movies. You don't want to miss out on all the fun. What fun is God compared to wild parties and sex. Young people get brain washed into this stuff, reaching them with the gospel can be a real challenge at this point. Little kids are not safe either, most "kids" movies are loaded with sexual innuendo's and perversion. They say it is for the parents, but what should parents want to do with such filth. Children are the most likely people to accept Jesus Christ as their savior, Satan knows this and attacks them hard. If you have children be very careful what you let them watch.
The music industry is another one of Satan's weapons against God. It is a powerful weapon. Nothing feels quite like good music. Non-Christian music is mostly evil. The drums, the bass, the catchy hooks, are all devilish. They say only the words matter, but this is not the case. Certain rhythms and especially beats have an affect on the brain. They can open up your mind to evil suggestions and out-right wickedness. It is not hard to get people to be wicked, that nature is inside of us. The worlds music is opposed to God. Everything about it is ungodly and steers people away from the simple truth of Jesus Christ. Sadly, most Christian music is ungodly. If it sounds like the worlds music, then it isn't of God. Their should not be "Christian" alternatives to contemporary music. The bible says in
2 Corinthians 6:17- Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. This is a command of God not to be like the world. If someone is saved, the Devil wants them living in as much sin as possible. He will set traps all around them to fall into. The unsaved person can simply indulge in all the pleasures of this world. All Satan has to do is keep people comfortable. Just a nice easy ride down stream into a fiery abyss. Christians have to constantly row against the current and keep this filth out of their lives. This is not an easy task. Most of us have to fight everyday. I admit that I submit to temptation every so often. I have struggled this last week. I noticed that my peace has gone away and hostility has overcome me. I must work to get over this.
I hope this was a blessing to you and I will leave you with the gospel. It is by Jesus Christ's death, burial, and resurrection that we are saved. We get to heaven only by believing that Jesus Christ shed his holy blood to wash away our sins. Our good works can not get us to heaven.
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
I Corinthians 15
1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
