The television, modern society's disgrace,
We get our love tips from Melrose Place,
The Simpsons provide the families example,
The MTV music our senses does trample,
Soapies teach us our lessons of life,
Telecafe will find us a wife,
Satanic symbols on Cartoons each day,
Nightly News shows us the price we pay,
Hollywood Movies shoot fiery darts,
Actors who sacrifice morals for parts,
Sightings will detail our roots from space,
X-Files jams it into our face,
Commercials bombard us with greed and lust,
Springerís guests bellow hot air in a gust,
Sitcoms get bolder and ruder each week,
Characters teach our kids to give cheek,
Star Trek urges us to boldly go,
Reality shows, our true poverty shows,
Our Horoscope daily to throw us off track,
All these and more stick the knives in our backs.
Why do we sit watch and vegetate,
The box of confusion, worldliness and hate,
Turn your attention to the Word of truth,
Receive Godís Spirit and turn yours loose.
Everything in todayís morally challenged society that is bad is available to the hungry viewer at the touch of their fingertips. Itís literally a fiery dart free for all being thrown right into your spirit, via satellite, courtesy of your friendly neighbourhood media network. If youíve ever been into the home of a Buddhist you would have noticed the Shrine/s set up in a prominent, centralised position in the home. In Western society, the TV takes the place of the Shrine in our lounge rooms, with the chairs and other comfort items placed in adoration around it. God has been replaced by a box of glass and plastic that corrupts our spirits with worldly ideals, rather than edifying and strengthening us as the Lord does. Itís time for all of us to switch off and switch on!!!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
