Wednesday's Word - That Sinner-tainment

Hello All,
I have a few friends who blame today’s moral ills on things like
Facebook and Twitter and reality television and stuff like that. My
personal take on it is this: I don’t think it’s these things in
particular, but something does raise my concern. I think that all
these things point to the idea that we’re becoming more
consumer-minded than pursuing-minded. Christ said that we are to be
His witnesses. We are to be watchmen on the wall. We are to warn and
inform. I think we’re getting sidetracked and constrained by
entertainment. There are people in a meeting right now discussing ways
to convince you that their next “big” thing is exactly what you need.
Things that will entertain you. And I may sound quite radical for
this next statement but here goes: I think we’re being exploited. Do
you realize that we have a nature that’s tainted? We have desires that
are bent away from their original intent. And it’s exactly that which
makes it make sense that somehow whatever is pushed in front of us in
the name of entertainment , will be gobbled right up. And on an even
touchier subject, there are churches that have gone the way of
entertaining rather than equipping. It’s a sad thing because
nowadays, it’s what we look for in a “good” church.
You think if we really cared about our neighbors or sharing Christ
with the lost that we could really care about housewives in Atlanta
are up to?

Here’s the word:

2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when people will not put up with
sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather
around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears
want to hear.

A word of caution; I’m not saying turn off Real Housewives of Atlanta
or any show because it means you aint saved if you don’t. This is
about taking an inner look at the things that entertain you. And also,
I’m not saying I’m not guilty, I’m just sayin. This is about
encouraging.

So I’m encouraging you to have a heart for people. To be available to
help them. To even seek them out. There may be some things that are
taking up your time from getting around to doing these things. And I’m
not here to impede on you liberties which I’m grateful in Chris for
indeed. But make sure you’re not caught up in fruitless things that
neither help you nor others. Remember, it’s somebody’s job to keep you
on the couch that sinner-tainment.


In Him,
Cros
