Many people don't accept themselves as clay before God on the potter's wheel. They become slaves to their peers, who value appearances. But you can see yourself as a unique creation of God, and then, live in freedom.
Take one look at the television, and it teaches that life at its best is reserved for beautiful people. Many assess their value based on how they look. This distorted view of self is damaging, especially to young people. So, how do we counteract it?
At no time in history has the entertainment culture invaded the church more than it has today. Last time we took the content test and the control test to see how addicted we are. Now we must face test number three.
Entertainment has sunk to new lows. To a large degree, movies, popular music, and TV have become a wasteland. How can a Christian discern what to watch or listen to? Is it time now to toss out the large-screen TV?
Where is the power of God most evident? In a healed tumor, or in a life changed from the inside out? Those with discernment know that the power of the Gospel far outweighs the power seen in miracles, signs, and wonders.
Miracles seem to happen often, and almost everybody wants one. Whose heart isn't moved by seeing someone in a wheelchair desperate to walk again? Yet is it possible that these so-called miracles could really be a form of demonic deception?
Modern-day false prophets promise blessing without repentance, and prosperity for all who send a gift. Some TV preachers lead many astray. But how can we tell when teaching is off the mark?
