Does the Media Control You?



It’s quite sad how much peoples minds are controlled by what comes out of the media. We as Christians are told, “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.” Philippians 4:8. Our emotions are to be controlled by the Holy Spirit. We need to be always wanting the best for a person, even if that person has offended you.

Let me ask you a question, if someone willingly killed your child or a family member, could you forgive them? It would probably be the hardest thing you ever had to do. And yet it was our sin that killed God’s Son on the cross. We were the ones who nailed Him there and the Father let it happen. We are deserving of the fires hell and yet Jesus cried out; “Father forgive them for they do not know what they are doing.” So if because of the sacrifice of His Son we are forgiven how much more should we forgive others?

I see racial division over this George Zimmerman trial even in the church. Shame on us! Jesus paid the price for all races equally and He called us His body. I can’t work properly !f I am missing part of that body. We need each other no matter what colour we are. There are greater things that the church needs to be concerned about and that is the salvation of souls. Millions are on their way to hell right now, consumed by hatred that is inflamed by the media and shamefully even pastors and so called reverends. Let’s get our act together church! It does not matter who was guilty or who wasn’t. We should be praying for the salvation of all those involved including George Zimmerman and if you can’t do that you are part of the problem.



It is incredible the racist element that has shown up in many peoples lives since yesterdays not guilty verdict. What is even more incredible is that many of these people call themselves Christians. How dare you place yourself in a higher place than God. One day the Pharisees, hoping to trip up Jesus brought Him a woman caught in the very act of adultery.

Jesus returned to the Mount of Olives, 2… but early the next morning he was back again at the Temple. A crowd soon gathered, and he sat down and taught them. 3 As he was speaking, the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in the act of adultery. They put her in front of the crowd.

4 “Teacher,” they said to Jesus, “this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5 The law of Moses says to stone her. What do you say?”

6 They were trying to trap him into saying something they could use against him, but Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger. 7 They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!” 8 Then he stooped down again and wrote in the dust.

9 When the accusers heard this, they slipped away one by one, beginning with the oldest, until only Jesus was left in the middle of the crowd with the woman. 10 Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?”

11 “No, Lord,” she said.
And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.”

Are you greater than God in passing judgement when the Lord says; “Vengeance is mine, I will repay.” ?

How many of you have had the thought, “Oh I’d just wish that person would die.” Do you not know that you are guilty in your heart of murder? So how is it that you can stand there with a stone in your hand ready to throw it at George Zimmerman? If you have anger, hatred and unforgiveness in your heart right now towards George, do you know you cannot enter heaven? “And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. 26 But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.” Grow up and let the Holy Spirit rule you instead of your emotions! – Gerry Desjardins
