The Devil’s Most Successful Trap for Christians
One of the greatest threats to our society today is not air pollution, or water pollution, but MIND POLLUTION.
For the first time in history, man has been given an instrument through which the masses can be taught and controlled effectively, immediately, and effortlessly. That instrument is TELEVISION.
TV is the most devastating brainwashing device ever unleashed upon humanity. To deny that television is a brainwashing tool, teaching and motivating people on a daily basis, is to deny reality. Television has proven to be the “secret weapon” in satan’s war against the children of God.
The television is the devil’s instrument and is used for the destruction of the soul, for the erosion of morality and the degradation of nations.
Television is bringing the world into bondage. Many individuals are no longer energetic and ambitious, but for the most part, they act almost like robots that have surrendered to the commands of the one-eyed master control.
The advent of pornography and music videos on TV has served to erode the moral fiber of youth even farther. We now have entire generations who have grown up under the commands of the beast -without any real character or moral fiber of their own.
These mis-guided youth are at all times ready to receive the filth and vileness which is spewed out incessantly through the “so called family entertainment centre” of the television set.
Many are people literally addicted to television and are actually unable to cope without at least one running in the background. Television controls 90% of the average person’s thinking and acting, as well as their consuming and spending habits.
The devil himself knows what an important tool the TV is, for through it he can control and mastermind the deceit of millions simultaneously.
He is no one’s fool when it comes to ensnaring souls, and through cunning craftiness, he brings many into captivity to sin using the innocent guise of entertainment. Countless hours are spent by the average viewer in front of the mesmerizing conglomeration of garbage, and for what?
To prove that without direction, people can be taken over, controlled and manipulated easily, and they have! Multitudes have lost their integrity, they have lost their honesty, purity and their willingness to work, all in the name of “entertainment”.
Millions have become media magnets, stuck to anything the television tells them, ready to believe every news report from so-called experts who appear on the screen, and the plastic politicians who always assure everyone that things are under control.
And of course the Christians have been snared with the rest. Through the spread of “Christian” television networks the enemy has eroded the backbone of the Christain community and has convinced “viewers” that Christianity is just one big wall of talk shows, big money, beautiful clothes, and loud “contemporary” Christian music.
It is one filthy, swirling mess, bringing corrupted values into the body of Christ, creating a fairy-tale fantasy of foolishness whereby the unsuspecting are duped out of their money whilst they are given a fool’s gold imitation of Christianity.
Humility, sacrifice, and carrying of crosses are never mentioned. And because the palate of the average TV Christian is so dull, they do not realize they are being fed poison, instead they think it’s a treat, and they grab it up, convincing themselves how good it is to feed off of lust, greed, covetousness, and gossip… all in the name of the gospel.
Needless to say, the devil has moved to capitvate the senses through music on TV and now, millions are addicted to the filthy videos and live concerts that run 24 hours a day via the idiot box.
These videos and concerts are nothing more than images of violence, pornography, perversion, and loud noise.
As torrents of perverted sexual demons flow from the TV screen, millions of once intelligent, ambitions youth have become addicted and mindless fools, falling down before the control box daily, receiving their commands and demands, and then living them out.
How Satan must delight to see the violence, filth and wickedness being manifested through people who once were strong and alert and carried a high moral standard. TV slaves are innumerable, caught in a hopeless bondage, and if ever a rare individual refuses the television, they are branded as “fanatic” or “foolish” -how could anyone not own a television and not be it’s absolute slave?
When you watch TV you are not just looking at light; it is more accurate to say that light is projected into you. You are receiving light through your eyes into your body, far enough in to affect your endocrine system.
When you are watching TV, you are experiencing something like lines of energy passing from cathode gun to phosphor through your eyes into your body. You are as connected to the television set as your arm would be to the electrical current in the wall if you had stuck a knife in the socket. This is not conducive to your spiritual health!
ARE YOU BEING BRAINWASHED?
Brainwashing techniques make use of artificial environments which reduce and narrow sensory experience to fit their own new confined reality.
The effect and purpose of this narrowing is to increase awareness and focus upon the politics, materialism, entertainment, spectacles and other drugs that society uses to keep us within its boundaries. We can consider TV to be an advanced brainwashing technique.
Sitting in darkened rooms, with the natural environment obscured, other humans dimmed out, only the eyes and ears operating, both within a very narrow range, other body function stilled, staring at light for hours and hours, the experience adds up to something nearer to brainwashing than anything that has come before it.
Television isolates people from their environment, from each other, and from their own senses. We know that it is an accepted truth about brainwashing that the subjects are unusually susceptible to suggestion. When you are watching TV you are experiencing mental images, and these mental images are not yours.
Because the rest of your capacities have been subdued, and the rest of the world dimmed, these images are likely to have an extraordinary degree of influence. Am I saying that TV is a brainwashing device? YES!
There is no question but that someone is speaking into your mind, influencing you to do something. First- Keep watching, Second- Believe what you are told, Third- Buy something.
CHRISTIANS AND TELEVISION
When Christians whet their appetites with carnal TV (most of which is geared towards illicit sexual activity) they are only promoted and provoked towards more ungodliness.
Ministers are especially in this hour indulging themselves in the vicarious sins of the smut ridden TV programs, and then sneaking the “sex” videos and magazines into their homes to participate in the more forbidden pleasures.
Never before have God’s men and women been so far from His holiness in their actions and thought lives. When a minster steeps himself in the filth of the world, how can he honestly minster the clean, pure, holy word of God?
How can he reflect the standard of holiness and righteousness after having an orgy in his thought life brought on by pornographic viewing? There is an epidemic in the land among the preachers. They are consumed with pornography and perversion as much as the unsaved.
Satan has unleashed hordes of perverse and sexual spirits upon the land through television in this generation, but Christians, and ministers in particular, are supposed to resist sin, to war against the devil and his hordes and to keep themselves unspotted from the world.
Since when does God’s word condone any kind of perverse sexual activity in the name of recreation or entertainment? Christians who insist upon having and viewing televisions are tempting God and allowing themselves and their children to be subject to the very hosts of Hell!
What about Christian women partaking of an entertainment medium that regularly brings to the television screen promiscuity, adultery, incest, homosexuality, endlessly serial marriages, drug abuse, violence and double-dealing of every imaginable variety? What about SOAP OPERAS?
THE GREAT SOUL EATER
Television is the Devil’s tool for destruction and he has no scruples when it comes to what he will use to destroy men’s souls, to tear down their moral fortitude and to devastate them through the devices of evil.
Since the world has so wholeheartedly embraced television, becoming televison robots, the moral fiber has greatly deteriorated and the result is that men and women, boys and girls have become vegetables who do, act, and say everything which the television implants in their passive, putty-like minds.
How unfortunate it is that people are no longer able to discern between good and evil, but only reflect what they have seen on television. We are daily amazed at how perverted people are becoming, and it is because television presents the heroes of our society in such a manner.
If you are allowing the TV to eat your soul, stop today and repent. Ask the Lord to free you. Become a vision seeker from God, then you will have a real vision to tell… one which will restore men’s souls and not destroy them.
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” I John 2:15-16
TELEVISION VIOLATES THREE IMPORTANT PRINCIPLES
1. PRINCIPLE OF VISION
“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
“Then said I unto them, Cast ye away every man the abominations of his eyes,and defile not yourselves with the idols of Egypt: I am the Lord your God” Ezekiel 20:7
2. PRINCIPLE OF AFFECTION AND VALUES
“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” Colossians 3:1,2
3. PRINCIPLE OF LIGHT AND DARKNESS
“Be ye not uneqully yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?” 2 Corinthians 6:14,15
” And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” Ephesians 5:11
