Have you ever stopped and taken a good look at children’s programming to determine if it is a child friendly as you think? When was the last time that sat down with your children to watch some of their favorite shows to make sure that they are appropriate?
Sadly the days of Mr. Rodgers and the land of Make Believe, where the worst thing a child would see is a carefully crafted skit about losing a pet or a loved one, is gone. Gone are the days of Mr. Wizard and Math Net, which sought to make science and Math look cool.
In this modern age where heterosexuality and boundary pushing are deemed cool, the age of innocence is no more. What would have once been considered adult only themes have made their way into children’s programming. As sadly the age of innocence is being eroded away, and few people even seem to realize it.
Sometimes, as we see the spiraling circus unfold around us, it is easy to become discouraged and declare that the Bible is wrong and God is never going to come. Concentrating on the decaying world around us, we begin to feel weighted down with hopelessness and despair as we join the disheartening chorus that God is long overdue and must have forgotten us.
But the word of God is confident, it declares that God never changes, and that He keeps His word. Which means that even though it seems to us now like God is overdue, that He has forgotten to come for us, He will come again. That He will come on the date and time that He has determined, and that He will not wait a second longer to bring the misery of sin to an eternal end.
I recently came across this interesting and powerful sermon on Sodom and Gomorrah.
