Have you taken notice of the new dynamic voices that are rising all
across America? These voices are capturing enormous audiences world wide.
They are more influential than any other voice has been in decades. They
hold their audiences undivided attention for hours at a time. Probably the
most astounding thing these new voices are accomplishing is their ability
to attract and be heard and followed by the so-called generation X. Now
all this could be considered one of the greatest things to have happen to
the Body of Christ in years, but these voices are not anointed men and
women of God preaching the gospel. Who are they? They are Oprah, Ricki,
Jenny, Jerry, and a host of other talk show hosts that Satan has raised up
to snatch away the youth of this generation and pollute their minds with
all manner of filth and ungodliness.
These talk shows are not just another program on your Television. Satan
is much more clever than that. These shows are part of his strategic plan
to program the minds of those who watch. He has been given solid hours day
after day to penetrate your mind and fill it with secular reasoning and
philosophy. The topics of these shows are straight out of the gutter. They
are designed to desensitize the viewers to sin and unrighteousness. They
make it appear that a majority of people like you and I are living like
the guest on their shows. They want you to believe that morality and
decency are unrealistic and most importantly unattainable. If they could
convince the mass audiences they reach that the Christian life style is
abnormal and outrageous, and a irreverent lifestyle is what is the norm,
then they can influence an entire generation to reject anything that calls
for values and ethics. These shows are perfect examples of calling evil
good and good evil.
Isaiah 5:20, "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that
put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet,
and sweet for bitter!"
The word of God warns us in: 2Timothy 2:16,
"But shun profane and vain babblings; for they will increase unto more
In the book of Proverbs 14:7, The Word of God exhort us to:
"Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him
the lips of knowledge".
Any child of God with the Spirit of God dwelling inside of him can
detect from watching only one of these talk shows that they are foolish,
profane, and ungodly. Our response as Christians should be to turn them
off. We cannot sit and allow Satan to talk to our children and us. We must
guard and protect our hearts. Our inner man needs to hear the Word of God
to become strong and equipped to war a good warfare.
The book of Romans, exhorts us to not be conformed to this world, but
be transformed by the renewing of our minds.
Romans 12:2, "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed
by the renewing of your mind,..."
We must strive to have the mind of Christ, Christian friend, our walk
with Christ has eternal rewards. We cannot afford to be passive on our
journey to eternity. Satan is searching for those he can devour. If we
allow him to capture us through the lack of knowledge of his strategies
then we will be devoured and destroyed. But thanks be to God who gives us
the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ (1Corinthains 15:57). If we need
to repent from allowing ourselves to listen to the new televangelist, then
let us do that and go on from here and not be entangled again with that
bondage. Jesus is ever forgiving and desires that none would perish. Ask
Him to create a desire in you for hearing His Word and a desire to
fellowship with him. Soon you will no longer have an appetite for anything
that is unpleasing to God and the only thing that will satisfy your hearts
desire is God alone!
