CHRSITAN LIVING QUESTION 60
What is being done about global warming?
The bird flu panic button has recently been turn off and the Global warming is the pandemic of the day. Some 70 % of Nova Scotians, who were surveyed, said this was their greatest fear. A lot of well informed scientist are calling it a hoax. It is something that has occurred back over history. The alarming fact is not global warming, but the moral standard that is corrupting society. The media is contributing greatly to this. I submit the following as one of the prime causes:
STUDY SHOWS THAT MORAL FILTH INCREASING ON TELEVISION - (Friday Church News Notes, April 25, 2008, 1. www.wayoflife.org email@example.com, 866-295-4143) - A new study by the Parents Television Council found that cable channels MTV and BET, which are popular with children and young people, are simply spewing out moral filth, including "sexually charged images, explicit language, portrayals of violence, drug use, and drug sales ("Study Reveals shocking Content," Baptist Press, April 14, 2008). The study found that some shows have an instance of "offensive or adult content" every 38 seconds. Actually, if we were to measure it by a biblical standard, everything on MEV is offensive and immoral, starting with the immodest clothes that the actresses and dancers wear. God's definition of the wickedness of the world is "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life" (1 John 2:16), and if that standard is applied to pop music and television programming, there is not much left. Yet studies have found that 70% of eight-year-old children in America have a television in their own rooms. There are few things that parents could do that would be more destructive to their children. I am convinced that the wise path is for Christian parents and grandparents to get rid of the television (at least for commercial programming and Hollywood movies). I have never met a Christian that regretted getting rid of the television, but I have met many who regretted keeping it. "I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me" (Psalm 101:3). End of quote.
What is T.V. doing to you? Do you know? Read 2 Peter 2:7-8.
