The Paranormal Romance Trend and the “Alien Gospel”

T
here is a disturbing trend in film, television, music and books that I think is very telling. It is the theme of aliens or otherworldly beings mating with human beings.

Is the fascination with “paranormal romance” in popular culture a passing fad or is it a sign of the times? This blog post is in video form. I realize that this topic is bizarre, but if you watch the video, you’ll see that is biblically relevant, therefore something believers should be aware of. Please take a few minutes to check it out. I’d love to hear your thoughts, so please share them and I look forward to hearing what you have to say!

Top 8 Reasons To Kick Your TV To The Curb

M
ost of us grew up watching TV, and we have fond memories of certain TV shows or classic “TV moments.” For decades, television has been a part of everyday life for most people. So much so, that the idea of ditching TV completely might be unthinkable to some.

So I don’t want to be a kill-joy here. I’m writing this because it is from my heart, it’s what I really believe. And although I’m sure you’ve heard this message before, people have different ideas on why it’s better to turn off the TV.

So here are my thoughts on why people should kick their TV to the curb.

7 Reasons Why Moral Relativism Is A False and Absurd Belief

Without Googling it, please read the following statement and tell me if you agree with it or not.

“Then I learned that all moral judgments are value judgments, that all value judgments are subjective…”

Most Americans would probably agree with the above quote. Why? Because according to a poll by the Barna Group (and other polls) the majority of Americans believe in moral relativism. Continue Reading…

The Battle For Souls Is Real, Even If We Choose To Ignore It

I
know many people who would roll their eyes at the idea that a spiritual war is going on, for minds and souls. The proverbial battle between good and evil is thought of as childish and simplistic, by the “wise” of this world. Go to YouTube or any place where atheists debate theists, and you’ll see statements like, “I can’t believe in this day and age people still believe a devil or demons exist.” Or, “Why do you Christians believe in fairy tales? Grow up.”

As I mentioned in this post, that prideful hard-heartedness is the very problem. But that’s another topic.

Regardless of how it may sound to some, I absolutely believe that there is a huge spiritual battle going on, the same one that has been going on since… well, almost Day One.

Why am I writing about this? I’m putting together a little video on the occult symbolism in the music industry. So, last night I was looking at tons of music videos by popular performers like Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Kanye West, Ke$ha and others.

What immediately stood out to me is that the satanic (or Illuminati) symbolism in popular music is not even hidden or subtle. It is completely overt, it’s right there in your face.

Ok, I guess it has been that way for a long time. At least in certain genres of music.

Maybe I just never thought much of it in the past, because I was a non-believer myself. But what I see now is that the horrible popular music of today, promoting darkness and debauchery is blatantly aimed at children. Let’s take “Ke$ha” for example. It appears that the average age of a Ke$ha fan is about 15. But some of her biggest fans are as young as 10 or 11. Keep that in mind as you watch this sample of her music:

Here’s another one. You’ll only need to watch the first 30 seconds or so, to get the picture. Notice all the “hidden in plain sight” occult symbolism in this video called, “Die young.”

When I think about the evil in this world, the lies, deception, and how so many young people are being led in the wrong direction… it weighs heavy on my heart. I want to do more. I wish I could yell, “WAKE UP” not only to people who are falling for the traps, but to some Christians, as well.

Are we living in a bubble?

I think that sometimes we get too busy with our own lives, and enjoying all the good things we’ve been blessed with, that we forget about the hurting and dying world out there. And the war that is going on, even when we don’t see it.

Do you think about what breaks God’s heart? Is your heart broken for those things?

If you are a follower of Christ, are you taking him at his word when He said:

“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Matthew 28:18-20

Was the Great Commission a suggestion or a command? I believe that it was/is a command.

That doesn’t necessarily mean that everyone has to go to Africa or Asia, or become a church worker. We can reach people wherever we’re at. The whole world is a mission field. (Matt. 13:38)

Remember Jesus’ words:

“The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.”

He said that 2000 years ago, but it’s just as true today. More ‘workers’ are needed, not only to feed and house the poor, but also to reach those who are being misled by spiritual forces of darkness and falling into traps of the enemy.

The darkness in this world can be demoralizing. But maybe we all (myself included) should ask God what we can do to be a part of this battle… instead of throwing our arms up in defeat or ignoring that it’s happening.

I hope that I wasn’t “preaching” too much here. I just want to encourage you, if you have a relationship with God and you are blessed, to allow God to use you in this battle.

Please share your thoughts, whether you agree with me or not! I always like to hear what you have to say!
