Out of Eden

June 19

"And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons ..."   Jeremiah 19:9

"... media is not the cause of all the abhorrent behavior, it is the replay of it."



What could possibly be more inconceivable than this prophecy of the LORD given to Jeremiah?  GOD originally forbid the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil from man; and hindsight suggests HE knew what HE was doing.  "They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into MY mind:"  Is it possible that the mind of man has dove to depths which even GOD never imagined?  The footprints heading east out of Eden, have indeed become increasingly deep and gory.  When the knowledge of good and evil came in, the knowledge of GOD went out; and the utterly unthinkable, suddenly became very doable!

For all who doubt my assessment, take a close look at this one breathtaking sentence, from the pen of Paul, outlining the litany of licentiousness, to which we are capable.  "And even as they did not like to retain GOD in their knowledge, GOD gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of GOD, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: who knowing the judgment of GOD, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them."  The depravity we see and hear of in our world today is simply the natural course of creatures culled from their CREATOR.  Sin can be labeled satanic, but don't call it insane, it is the most calculated science on the planet.

We think Hollywood bizarre and far fetched, but it is not!  It is merely the theater of the Producer's mind, based upon the book of the Humanities.  Modern sociologists have their cart before their sinner; for media is not the cause of all the abhorrent behavior, it is the replay of it.  The most graphic scenes of the screen, depicting the depraved mind of man, pale in comparison to the real time events occurring daily in our world.  It was into the cow trough of this sad cinema of our sin that CHRIST was born, and into similar lot, HE sends HIS gospel missions today. 

"And the LORD said unto the servant, go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that MY house may be filled."

(3rd President of the United States)
"I hold the precepts of JESUS as delivered by HIMSELF, to be the most pure, benevolent and sublime which have ever been preached to man ..."
