What are we teaching or not teaching?

I recently overheard a conversation from a mother trying to express her disapproval of a TV show advertisement about questionable moral character only to hear the child say it’s no big deal.  It’s just TV.  It happens all the time.  That’s how it should be anyway.  If you get bored or want something else just do it.  It’s just TV no one really cares.  That is the problem it’s not just TV any more. It is almost impossible to find a wholesome show with little or no violence or sex.  TV takes up a vast amount of our children’s time.  Electronic media has in an attempt stolen our children’s minds and desensitized it to all that is evil and perverse in the world.  Life seems to be lived in 4-6 minutes clips.  Nothing seems to be a big deal anymore to society, to the church, to the world.  We are even seeing the church the place where right is supposed to be the standard for living openly accepting wrong.  Explicit sex, drug use, homosexuality, and profanity are all just part of the daily grid.

It is shameful and then we wonder why our people act as they do.  Parents are silent, the church is silent but the world is speaking loudly.  So loudly that it almost silences the true voice of reason.  We have FAKE reality show that make our children and even the vast amount of adults become addicted to the nothingness that it represents.  They tune into show after show of wild unchecked behavior all in the name of entertainment.  We then wonder why they act the way they do and do things that even shock their own parents.  Rape, murder and violence with no slight since of concern for their fellow man or woman.  Children murdering each other just because.  No reason just because.  Premeditated and all and then we say they didn’t mean it.  It just got out of hand.  Gone are the days of playful ignorance. Children and adults see hundreds of ways to do everything but live right.  The sad thing is that God put it inside of us all to know right from wrong we just act like we don’t care or don’t see it because that is what the world is teaching us to do.  When it finally kicks in then all of a sudden the light kicks in and depression, suicide, divorce and other things happen.


There is no reset on life.  People do not just get back up and continue playing.  Trust is hard to regain let alone keep.  Hearts are broken and then all of a sudden it’s not OK when it happens to you.  Then we want to sit around complaining about how wrong it is.  Wake up it was wrong in the first place.  We need to return to a right relationship with God.  Repent.

I believes that you can’t get anyone to accept that you love them until you can get them to know you care. I believes that to establish an authentic relationship with Christ it starts with renewing your mind to the truth. I holds to the scripture Romans 12:2 "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect." (ESV) as a key concept in ministry. As I am just a servant wherever the Lord so decides to place me to glorify HIM is the right place or position for me. We must not get stuck in our own formulated plan but be willing to LET THE LORD USE YOU. For HIS plan is always the right plan and will only lead to greater fulfillment.

The ministry God has placed in my heart to work in is Renewed Spirit Worship Center. A ministry he allowed me to launch some time ago. Prior to this vineyard I have served in other churches and ministry over the years in many position or no position at all. I believe title or not doing what God called you to do is always the right thing to do.

My favorite scripture is 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 " Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."

  1. Sadly, I am living the words of Jesus as He said in Luke 17.26. I again say the word, sadly as todays world as warned by God’s son himself warned us in the time of his returning the world will be in a sinful condition just as the day of Noah! I say we again sadly has achieved this style of life, and maybe even worse! There is sex, violence, crime, murders, abusing children, abortions as they aborted children to Baal. Now here we are as humans walk around in pride half naked with trousers showing buttocks and females almost no coverage? Yep, Jesus warned us and also hearts of many has waxed cold even as some as an iceberg. See, this too is a part of God’s Holy word, The Bible! Our savior clearly warned all his followers thousands of years in regard to our day and atmosphere. I read of a pestilence will be sent from God upon people who continued living such a selfish, sinful lifestyle! In the book of Exodus , Israel was told to put pure lambs blood above the door mantle and do not come out til the death angel passes. The death angel did not kill firstborn in rotation, but did so SPORADICALLY! Well COVID acts the very same and cause one attends church renders zero evidence you are a child of God, it simply means you attend a church. We need to severely realign our walk, talk,and lifestyle in faith in the blood of Jesus which will give us a new start living life Godly with signs that follow all believers!

  2. Hello brother Edgar

    This is an interesting topic and I would love to see it reintroduced in the men's group. As a pastor, father and grandfather, these topics are always arising in our family and church family as a whole. We address them! Please consider introducing it.

    God bless
