In regards to children let us see what Instruction God has given us to grow them?
Deut 6:7 “You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.”
Does not the above verse tells us to teach our children the word of God when we walk, when we sit, when we go for a walk actually any time and every time.
Are we doing this now? How many parents can stand up and say that I am doing all as per what God commanded? If we are not instructing our Children about this; Remember on the day of Judgment you will have to answer to God the reason of why your Children lost his eternal kingdom.
In today’s world many young children and adults alike have filled their life with satanic music and songs. there morning alarm is a unbiblical song, they get ready to school with some stupid songs in the background, they travel to school/office with MP3 players jamming their favorite hits through a head phone’s. Even after reaching school/office they discuss about movies and TV, and the moment they are back home; they tend to relax in front of the TV.
What are we doing to our beloved kids? Do you want to fry them in hell??????
The Bible says in Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” But nowadays we train up our child to watch TV programs; a one year old child’s baby sitter is the Television. If a 5 year old child is troubling us then we switch on TV and ask them to watch a so called good Children’s movie.
Do you know how much dangers are there in these children movies? Here let me show an example
The picture below is a snapshot from the movie Narnia. This movie was a loved by many childrens. Below is a still from the movie. The character shown in the picture is Timnus
Now watch the image below
Doesn’t both the images look similar? Do you know who is the person in the second image? It is Timnus. ; Yes our Children movies director have modeled Timnus exactly as the image above. Do you know who it is? It is Pan, the Greek Sex God.
Now I would like to ask the producers of the Children movie; what is a Sex God doing in a Children’s movie? Are you permitting your children to watch a movie which has a Sex god in it?
Are we not guiding our child to hell? Beware God will come and judge you.
Since we are training up our children in the ways of Satan, they grow up to be disciples of Satan.
Let’s read Romans 1:28 – 31
“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful;”
Don’t we see that most of the youngsters of today’s world falls in the above categories as clearly given in the Bible? Do you agree with me? Don’t you realize that the characters explained in Romans 1:28-31 is what is magnified in movies and TVs and projected as heroes and villains which we enjoy.
You may still want to argue that in most movies good wins over evil, but you should also note the way which good wins over evil, almost 99% of the times good wins over evil by doing more evil. And is there any movie or TV serial which after watching we say “Praise be to the LORD and savior Jesus Christ”. No never do we feel like saying that because all movies are actually directed by Satan.
Now read Romans 1:32 "Who KNOWING the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, BUT HAVE PLEASURE IN THEM THAT DO THEM."
Watching/ reading/ listening to these things is having pleasure in them that do them. The bottom line is we are having pleasure in sinners who are sinning. This is an abomination to the Lord Jesus Christ! Galatians testifies AGAINST the evil works that professed Christians ENJOY on TV
"Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall NOT inherit the kingdom of God." Galatians 5:19-21
