These days there are a lot voices calling for the attention of our youth. One of the biggest voices is MTV. Never has a medium produced such smut. Last year they produced the half-time show for the Superbowl. Besides Janet Jackson exposing her breast it included, Janet Jackson grabbing her breasts; another performer repeatedly fondling his crotch; striptease cheerleaders; gyrating transvestites; simulated lesbian sex; and Jackson and Justin Timberlake groping each other. This same MTV promoted Brittany Spears (who calls herself a Christian and now a student of the Kabala) and Madonna sharing an open mouthed kiss on their live award show last year.
Brittany Spears has called herself a role model for young girls. Unfortunately she is. Little girls as young as 3 want to dress like her and dance like her because of the videos they have watched off this channel. How can we allow our children to have these type of role models or even watch what they produce.
A school in Montreal suspended 2 thirteen year old girls because they were selling tickets to boys to come watch them kiss. They told their parents they got the idea from watching Brittany Spears and Madonna and thought it would be a great way to make money. This was going on for 4 months before school officials discovered what was going on.
These people are leading our children to Hell and some of us don’’t even realize it. We have become sensitized to the media. I’’m sure we have all heard the story of how if you put a frog in a pot of cold water on a stove and turn up the heat slowly, it won’’t notice the change in temperature and slowly boil to death. This is what the media has been doing to us and our children. They are slowly turning up the immorality and unless you are in God’’s word you don’’t notice it. Then when our children start acting and doing the things these people are doing we are surprised. Jesus said this in Matthew 15:14; Let them alone. They are blind guides of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch." He gives those who would lead our children and young Chrristians astray a very strong warning. "But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. "Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to sin! Such things must come, but woe to the man through whom they come!" Matthew 18:6-9
Earlier in Matthew Jesus said this; "The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is sound, your whole body will be full of light; but if your eye is not sound, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness" (Matthew 6:22-23). He also said, "If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and throw it away; it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell" (Matthew 5:29). Unless you can control what you watch and have discernment, Turn off the TV. Don’’t let that garbage into your house. Christ is the best role model a child can and should have. He needs to be the centre of everything we do and watch. It’’s time for us to stand up and say enough is enough, the only guide and role model I want is Jesus. Take a stand for righteousness today.
