I missed the context of that statement me thinks.
But, there's hundreds of billions of stars in the sky and we're still working on our first billion host names...wait are we talking about stars visible to the human eye?Greetings:
Video lovers will die protecting their hook.There are more porn sites than stars in the sky.or, equivalent to transferring more than 10
dual-layer DVDs every second.Some folks will take out their wheelbarrows and pound away for hours to knock down the size of the claim about the big-big stat,so it is no big deal.
What do you guys think about watching movies? Do you watch movies? If so, have you ever felt conviction that may be you should stop? If you have watched before and stopped watching now, what made you to take that decision?
I used to watch movies until a few years back. As I started learning Bible in a slightly deeper way, I stopped watching. Few reasons which stand out,
- It does not bring glory to God
- It opens up avenues for the enemy to tempt me and make we fall very easily
- Takes up a big chunk of time in which I could do other things like Bible study, prayer or just fellowship within my family.
- Hollywood implicitly (and often explicitly as well) conveys a message which is against Bible. I don't want my mind to be open to such ideas.
- Too much of sexual content. It takes me a lot to overcome in the area of lust. So I try to keep doors closed and not put myself in a situation where I will be tested beyond a limit.
We need to sift through all media today. Can't isolate movies as the worst. Many series and music are just as bad. The real threat though is not to us. We are mostly mature BAC's. The threat is to our kids and younger believers.
There is a time for everything. I don't think God expects any of us to bible study 24/7. If you desire that, you are a saint among saints. I will likely be taking orders from you in heaven.
Indeed.Agree, with regard to TV series.
Has anyone else noticed that TV programmed for young people is growing more dark and perverse? Demons, Witches, Devils, Vampires, Werewolves. And all with kinky sex themes added in?
And commercials! It's not an illusion that a zoophilia theme is creeping in. There's a Hamster in a cell phone commercial who is the father of human kids and has a human wife. Godzilla advertises a candy bar and is flirted with by a lovely blond girl. There use to be a Sheba cat commercial with Eva Longoria putting forth a sexy dance for her cat. On and on and on. Ephesians 5:5 For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
Proverbs 14: 34 Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.
I was listening to Family Talk radio on Sirius the other day. A man made mention of such things that he's noticed as well. He also made the observation about the deviant communities that are now gaining legal rights to display their behaviors with pride in secular society and be afforded special protections at the same time.
He said that it can all be a symptom of this nation having turned away from God and God reciprocating. Letting us see how things go when a nation turns from God and God allows them to have their way.
