Don't Support Hollywood, Disney Etc...


Don't Support Hollywood, Disney Etc...

I was thinking while I was praying the other day about how a lot of people on YouTube when we're watching their videos and watching their content or subscribing to their channel those people or that channel producer sees us as one of their followers. You're one of their numbers. And the same is true for Hollywood or Disney or whatever organization is putting out content. Even if you think you don't agree with that publisher, with that that person, that person sees you as someone who is donating to their cause. You're giving your money to them. Your eyes are on them. And they love that.  Even if you don't agree with everything they put out, you are still one of their followers. And it's crazy to me how Christians will say “we're against idolatry” “we’re against abortion” “we’re against homosexuality”. They're against all these things Yet they will willfully pay for all the movie actors to promote all this garbage in Hollywood and in all the movies that they're watching. These Christians will not commit these atrocities themselves outwardly because they want to look good in church. 

But they're willing to pay their good money at the movie theatre to watch movie actors rape people, kill people, and do all these wicked things in these comedies and in these murder mysteries and in all of these violent movies that come out. And Christians are addicted to this junk, they love it, they are totally into this fantasy. And all of these movie actors and all of the producers know that even these Christians they have control over their minds because they are part of their number.

Now I don't consider any of you that watch my videos my followers.  I don't make followers of myself. I make followers of Jesus Christ. I don't have any followers. I point people to Jesus to follow Him. And if you're not here today to want to follow Jesus, then there's a bazillion other channels on YouTube that you could be following. But I'm not here to promote myself. I'm not here to promote other people. I'm here to promote the kingdom of God that people will come into a relationship with Jesus Christ and be saved.

Too many people are promoting wickedness. They love just entertainment That is why you see all these videos with millions if not billions of views and it's the most ridiculous stuff. It's because people love to be entertained by nonsense. But Jesus Christ is not nonsense, He has the words of everlasting life, and if we put our faith in Him we will be saved and lifted up on the last day.

Too many Christians are deceived by all of this garbage on the internet, on the TV, with Hollywood, with Disney.  We know guys right from wrong, so why are we choosing wrong daily, why are we paying money to see all of this hatred of God, and laughing at the things that God despises?

In case you did forget right from wrong, I want to read to you what the Apostle Paul writes about this in Galatians chapter 5. I'm going to start in verse 16. “I say then, walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh. And these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.” See, you wish to be holy and righteous, you wish to follow God, but you also want to see that movie that came out. So instead of being holy and pure, you go and see that comedy, and it mocks God, it blasphemes God's name. There's sexual perversion in it. And suddenly you're doing things that you wish not.

“But if you are led by the Spirit you are not under the law”. Of Course you're not under the law because you're being led by the Spirit of God which would not lead you  against the law or against His truth. “Now the works of the flesh are evident which are adultery”, which is sex outside of marriage with your wife or your husband, “fornication”, which is having sex with someone and not being married at all, “uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery”, which is drugs, “hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambition, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries”, which are wild parties, and the like, “of which I tell you beforehand, just as I told you in a time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God”.

Well that just sums up pretty much all of Hollywood, Disney, all of the TV, everything that you see on the television. If you are part of these things, even if you call yourself a Christian, you will not inherit  the Kingdom of God. “But the fruit of this Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one other.” We have to be separate from the world, from ungodliness, from all of this junk that is on the TV and on the internet.  This will pollute your children; it will pollute your heart. You will be eliminated from the race of the righteous if you allow this into your life.

I encourage you as your brother in the Lord to repent of this if this has captivated your ears and your eyes. Take your children away from the TV. Take them away from the cell phone. Get yourself away from anything that is perverted. Any of these producers that are following the devil, most all of them are, and they think, and they know that you are their disciple if you are watching their content. Don't watch them. Get your eyes on Jesus Christ. Be holy. Stick with Him and do what is right, otherwise you're going to be eliminated from the Kingdom of God. May the grace of Jesus be with you.
