Today, people watch so many things on television. So many commercials, for shows that are promoting things, that God says are an abomination. Even when we don't care to see those commercials, they interrupt our programs. Have you ever seen the commercials that are shown between kids cartoons? They also have music videos that play on the kids channels. Quite a few of these videos are not something kids should watch, not if you don't want your kids to be indoctrinated. We have to be careful what we look at, what we listen to. The eye and ear gates are the doors, that lead to either good or bad things. Watch porn, and you'll probably get addicted. You didn't just spend time watching something that interest you, you opened a door for a demon. This demon moves on in, and you have no right to kick it out, because you opened the door. Until you repent, and tell that demon to leave in The name of Jesus, it will always be with you, like an unwanted house guest. The same goes for many other bad things we watch. If you listen to music , that promotes hatred, frustration, suicide, killing people, etc, how does that feed your spirit? What if ts a "good" song, that is sung by a person with bad character? When I say bad character, a bunch of people come to mind. Im talking about those, who speak against Christians, and promote unrighteous things. I dont know about you, but I am on God's side, and wont try to promote unrighteous things. God tells us not to be like the heathens (anyone who doesn't follow Jesus). Their ways will lead to destruction. Now, are the movies, tv shows, and music worth your soul? What are you worth to you? Are you selling your soul to the devil? You probably wouldn't know if you are. The bible says not to be fearful of anything or anyone except God. Fearing God is a good thing. It will help you stay the course and will motivate you to do what's right. God is all powerful and satan got to a point where he didn't fear God, and now he will one day be thrown into the lake of fire. I don't celebrate halloween. There is nothing good about it, even though people have sweetened the deal with candy. I don't have Santa Claus statues or pics in my house, and I dont do easter egg hunts, or purchase any rabbit stuff. I dont purchase any candy or things, that have a packaging just for halloween, easter or santa related. I choose to Celebrate Jesus and Jesus alone. I don't care what others celebrate, nor do I look down upon anyone who has easter egg hunts, or dresses up on halloween. That's their choice. I have opened enough "doors" in my life, and caused myself enough problems. I don't miss the Santa from my childhood, nor do I miss egg hunts. I can buy any candy I want, any time I want it. Even if I couldn't get candy, I have made up my mind. I have chosen not to do anything, that offends my Lord and Savior. Maybe God likes spook houses, maybe God doesn't mind sharing his resurrection day with a rabbit and egg hunts, maybe God doesn't mind if people look to Santa for gifts, like a genie. Maybe God will make room for another in your heart. When he says in The 10 Commandments, "Thou shall not make no other God's before me," maybe as long as you pray first, then he'll understand. Maybe he won't really care if you look at horoscopes,  or if you do drugs. Maybe God doesn't mean everything he has said. Maybe we can do whatever we want, as long as we repent right before we die. Wait, I don't really know when I'll die, and if I try to wait, to repent when I feel like I'm done partying, having sex without marriage, etc, then I'm not really sorry am I! I think people are not fearful of God. I know that God sees and hears everything, and it doesn't matter where you are. Nothing is hidden from God. Everything that leads to evil, starts from what we see or what we listen to. I think throughout the years, everything has gotten so twisted. The devil has done a fantastic job promoting his kingom. He has dressed it in a pretty dress, put lipstick on it, made it addicting, and anyone who doesn't want to participate in his rituals are ridiculed. He has made people believe that The Bible is old and needs updated for the new times, he has made doing the right thing become unpopular and even illegal in some places. He has deceived mankind. Even those, who think they are righteous, have idols all around them, buried underneath their tents. When asked about their celebrations, their movies that promote witchcraft, or their music that promotes evil, they will look at you with a grin, and tell you, "don't judge me." The Word of God is most often used by Christians to slap other Christians. What happened to "What would Jesus do?" Would Jesus go into haunted houses, playing  with fear, when he says not to be fearful, would Jesus dress up like a goblin, or Harry potter, when he clearly speaks out against witchcraft? Would Jesus think that vampires and werewolves are cool, even though they kill and take blood from people, and are cursed and part of the undead? Would Jesus play games and watch TV shows with zombies? The Bible, showing the character of Jesus, says NO. Is this why so many Christians have anxiety attacks, depression, and being bipolar is now as  common as having a barbecue grill? I do know when we get off the path, going away from Jesus, then we will suffer many afflictions. It is better to stay the path, and know where you stand with God. Are you gambling with your life? What do you stand for? Do you think you can believe some things in the Bible but not everything, because some things are just so fun. I wonder if the devil makes things fun and exciting, so we think it's something good? What is good?
