One of the many things I like to do is observe people and how they act, walk, talk. I have noticed a disturbing trend recently that makes me a little uneasy. I have talked with some people and simply observed others, but people seem to be turning from God and moving into the world more. One person I spoke with has since left the church because they say there is nothing there. They tell me that the messages are the same week after week and they have better things to do with their time. They say they would much rather go out and have fun instead of sitting in a stuffy church listening to someone who seems to repeat themselves time and time again. This is the reason for my being disturbed. I go to church just about every Sunday and I don’t hear what they are talking about. I hear things that God obviously wants me to know.
Watch television some time and watch with the intent to see what they are doing. My take is that most of what you see is things that are meant to pull you away from church and God and lead you into the world. One TV commercial I seen was for a show called Dead Files. On that show is a woman who says she speaks to dead people. She doesn’t speak to dead people at all. In my personal opinion, she seems to be possessed and focusing on demons. I am pretty sure that it is virtually impossible to speak to dead people and if you hear voices, it is because the devil has won control and sent his demons to control. This show is not in any way entertainment and I really don’t know why people watch it other than they are drawn by evil. People and television today is designed to control your mind and get you to do what they are suggesting. I watched a show not too long ago that showed the host of the show partaking in a ceremony where they go into a state of thinking they leave their body and meet with some kind of spirit. Talk about selling your soul to the devil. Be careful what you do.
Watch most families. Sports have become more important than anything else and practically every day of the week is taken up by that. When I was young, I played sports, but there were never any games scheduled for Sunday’s. What happened? Once again, the world has influenced our minds and has made this the norm rather than the exception.
The bible speaks of how it will be in the last days and we would do well for ourselves if we would pay attention to that rather than what the world has to say. Here is a woe to that is mentioned in Isaiah 5:20, Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. This is the exact path that a large majority is headed and every day more are added.
People are leaving our churches at an alarming rate and turning to what the world has to offer instead. I have witnessed young people who, while they were young they would come and worship God, but now they are serving the world and drinking and carrying on as if they never knew him. Once they become an adult and get out of school, everything changes for them and they no longer seek what is good, but what looks like fun to them.
If I may, don’t give up on God, run toward him. Coming from an unsaved background and not even knowing about God until I was in my late twenties, I have learned just how important knowing God is. If you know him and walk away you are taking a risky chance and each time you walk away and come back, it gets harder and harder until you have no desire to serve God again and that is sad. I went from drugs to God. He lifted me up when I had nowhere else to turn and changed my life forever. As far as the television shows go, I don’t watch that garbage. I would much rather watch a travel show or cooking show (but the cooking show could be evil if I ate all of things they show, ha-ha).
People say that they get the same old same old every Sunday, but if I had to guess, I would say that they are not praying, they are not reading the Bible. They need to understand, God loves them and with a love that is far greater than anything they could ever receive on this earth or anywhere else. Don’t become a follower of what the world has to offer because all of that will pass away, only God has the true and only satisfaction you will ever need.
Thanks for letting me bend your ear and know that what was written were my personal opinions with a little help from God.
God bless and have the greatest day ever.
