Let’s face it! We live in a very highly sexualized world today!http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Disco_Dancers.svg

.

Like never before in history, mankind is able to market and distribute sexualized literature and images, via television and high-tech devices.

A SEXUALLY CHARGED SOCIETY

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Woman_applying_make-up.jpg.

But even in department stores, sensual images in the form of advertising signs, are now displayed nearly everywhere!

.

As we drive our cars, the radio often plays highly sexualized music, with lyrics that would never have been allowed to air in decades past.

But what about Christian parents?

.

Are Christian parents guarding their children from exposure to all this sensuality?

TELEVISION AND THE IMAGE THAT SPEAKS

.

One area in which the god of this world, Satan works very deceptively and very cunningly to draw our children into Hell, is through the television.

.

And don’t suppose for a moment that Satan is some sort of a dummy!

.

No, Satan is just as subtle as he was in the Garden, maybe even more so!

SENSUAL CARTOONS

.

For instance, his subtlety is seen in how Satan has designed children’s cartoons to be a progressive downward pathway to destruction.

.

Yes, for the very young, many cartoons seem to be the very essence of innocence!

.

And the concerned Christian parent may search for the nicest and most moral cartoons as possible.

SEEMINGLY INNOCENT CARTOONS

.

Well, Satan understands all this and merely creates various cartoons to be just that!

Some cartoons even include educational moments!

.

And so, the naive Christian parent sets the young child in front of the TV, confident that the child will be learning as they are watching.

.

But what these parents do not realize is that Satan is merely conditioning these very young children to become TV addicts!

DOWNHILL PROGRESSION

And as the child gets a little older, the educational cartoons become more scarce.

.

And on and on it goes, until all that is available are worthless, silly cartoons, or even worse!

HELLISH DESCENT

.

In other words, the older the child gets, the worse things get, as far as the television is concerned.

And nowadays, many cartoons are getting really sensual!

.

And this is also a gradual downward progression.

.

Today, the cartoon characters are often created to look and move very sensually.

.

But before long the cartoons get even worse!

REAPING THE WHIRLWIND

.

And little by little, Satan takes our children further and further into immorality, until the child reaches puberty.

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Texting_closeup.jpg

And all of a sudden, the child blooms into a full-blown sexualized teenager. And the Christian parents are puzzled as to what happened.

.

Christian parents, don’t let this happen to you!

.

If at all possible, get rid of the television, before it’s too late! And get rid of those high-tech devices that most of today’s younger generation are so easily addicted to!

GOOD NEWS!

.

The Good News is, that we have a merciful God.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Heinrich_Seufferheld_Betendes_Maedchen_opus_16,1_1893.png

.

And if the Christian parent has lost control over his or her household, there is still hope!

.

Yes, by making a complete surrender, and living the rest of one’s life to wholeheartedly serve the Lord, that Christian may one day see his or her children in Heaven!

NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT THAN OUR CHILDREN’S SALVATION!

.

Oh yes, the road ahead may be rocky and rough.

But just remember what Jesus endured to save our soul!

.

There is no sacrifice too great if it means salvation for our children!

.

May the Lord bless us in this endeavor!

THE SWINE: “LUST OF THE FLESH”

.

“For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” 1st John 2:16

.

This article will introduce this third beast-like face, inscribed in the Moon: a swine. And it will be shown that the three beast-like faces in the Moon, represent the concept taught in the above verse concerning “the lust of the flesh…the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life”. 

.

It has become apparent that the second face in the Moon, besides appearing as a wolf-like beast, also appears as a Swine. Let’s explore this concept, for a moment. First of all, when a person sees the second face up in the sky, it’s arguable whether or not it looks like a swine. But it must be conceded that the photos do indeed make it appear as if this character has a “sawed-off” snout like a swine. And of course, a swine is spoken of quite frequently in Scripture.

“GRACE ABOUNDING TO THE CHIEF OF SINNERS”

by J. Bunyan

.

John Bunyan, the author of the earth-shaking allegorical tale, “Pilgrim’s Progress”seems to have caught the essence of the meaning behind clean and unclean beasts. He saw why God made a distinction based on the feet as well as the diet of these beasts, as stated in the following Bible verse…

.

“Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth… Nevertheless… the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.” Leviticus 11:2,4,7 

.

Why did God makes the feet and the diet of the beasts of the earth the criterion for this distinction between clean and unclean beasts? How odd!
