Babylon and Its System, Part 4

Those Christians living during the coming Tribulation will be very tempted to become part of the Babylon system – religiously, economically, politically and socially – and may even want to move to that location to be closer to the action. The fact that once destroyed, Babylon becomes a haunt of demons, unclean spirits, birds and beasts probably affirms the fact that this Babylon in Revelation 17/18 is a real, physical place if physical birds and beasts can dwell there.

Babylon and Its System, Part 3

Van Tassel, in the 1950’s, held public meetings where the public could ask questions of Ashtar and where answers would be provided, channelling their information through Van Tassel. The Ashtar Command revelations were compiled into a book that details future events that will take place on the earth. Interestingly, Ashtar himself is said to be, “a Beloved Christian Commander and a very beautiful Being.” [3] Fascinating, isn’t it? Angel of light maybe to deceive? I think so. See 2 Corinthians 11:14.

Movies Have Consequences

People have become so desensitized to gore, violence and gun play that it’s ready for the next level. My only concern is what is that level?! It’s scary to consider. Hollywood should be dialing it back, but instead pushes onward with more gore, more violence and more gun play that will further desensitize and exploit the next generation of movie/TV watchers than this current generation. They’ve learned that if they dial it back, their movies will “flop” so they keep pushing the edge.

Public Decorum Is Gone like the Dinosaur

We gave up cable over a year ago and good riddance. We have Internet only and use that to watch television, choosing only the programs we want to watch and without commercial interruptions. Most are old TV shows and old movies. I rarely watch sports anymore either, unless it’s college ball. Most of what’s on is simply part of the Hollywood cesspool. Hollywood works hard to foster new “norms” that it can foist onto society through television, movies, video games, and music. It’s all done on purpose.

Does Neil Postman Offer Us a Solution?

Postman notes that by the time the average American reaches 40 years of age, he/she will have seen “well over one million television commercials in his or her lifetime, and has close to another million to go before the first Social Security check arrives. Every program on television has a “sponsor,” a company that pays hundreds of thousands of dollars (or even millions, depending upon the program), to advertise their product during that show’s broadcast. Because of that, things have become very one-sided. While Postman does not condemn capitalism, he certainly understands that some of these corporations have become so large, they are their own monopolies and because of that, can and do dictate to society and even to our government how things are to be done. This, he says, has destroyed public discourse as it is supposed to be. He even notes that because of commercials, people began to stop using prepositions and that began in the 1950’s. It’s even worse today. This has been done through substituting images for claims related to a product. It’s not even talking. It’s merely a progression of images with a bed of pleasant music underneath.

Why Do People Not Believe?

t’s not that the text in Matthew 13 is telling us that if we only believed in God’s power in a greater way, we would be healed of all physical ailments. What we learn there is that God’s hands are often tied because of the stubbornness of people’s hearts, a stubbornness that pits them against God. Friends, we know that this is a very dangerous place to be, isn’t it? Yet, most in the world are there.

Satanism in Hollywood? Not Necessarily What You Might Think

Much of what passes for Satanism today in Hollywood is simply theater, nothing more, in my opinion. It makes people think that America is losing its biblical foundations, so Christians will get all worked up and do something to counteract it. In reality, America lost its biblical foundation decades ago. Satanism is designed to be shocking and intended to keep Christians alert and on edge, and even in fear, looking for other signs of societal failure. We shouldn’t fall for it, but too many do.

Even the High and Mighty Die

Yet in spite of all this, what did they really have? Did they have salvation? Where are they now? We know that in life as in death (or at least at the grave site), Douglas Fairbanks went to the extreme. In the photo of his grave at Hollywood Forever Memorial Park (where he is also buried with his son Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.), we can see that a great deal of money was spent to ensure that the Fairbanks grave site would stand out and be set apart. It was designed to let everyone know that someone of vast importance rested there. Who buys that much land to be laid to rest in, complete with a reflecting pond in front and trees lining the sides? Who does that? Certainly not someone who sees the utter temporal nature of this life itself.
