HOLLYWOOD THE BIG SEDUCER

For years I have done seminars on how to watch movies. I always have seen that Christians get very upset when you take away their secular entertainment. This is one of the major ways that secularism gets into her brain and controls Our Lives. It is very important that when you watch movies and TV you think. Or as the Bible puts it you set your mind on the things of the spirit not on the flesh.


SPIRITUAL ADULTERY
Spiritual adultery is unfaithfulness to God. It is having an undue fondness for the things of the world. Spiritually adultery is analogous to the unfaithfulness of one’s spouse: “‘But like a woman faithless to her lover, even so have you been faithless to me, O house of Israel,’ says the LORD” (Jeremiah 3:20; see also Isaiah 1:2157:8Ezekiel 16:30).
This is a good article on the issue of spiritual adultery.

GOD MADE MAN LIKE HE IS!



Today, we read Gen. 1: 26 -28 as we continue to read about how God used His creativity, labor, and resources to create the heavens, the earth, and all that it contains. We see that on this very busy sixth day of creation, God made man in His own image.
In addition, God  blessed them and told man to, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
1 Corinthians 15:49:  "Just as we have borne  the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven."

HUNTING, FISHING, AND FARMING IN GOD'S ECONOMY



Last week we talked about hunting and fishing after the 5th day of God creating the creatures of the sea and the birds of the air. 
On the sixth day, God creates the cattle, creeping things, and beasts of the earth.
One critical point to understand is each catagory is "after its own kind" meaning cows produce cows, hummingbirds produce hummingbirds, and whales produce whales.
The birds of the air, the fish in the seas, and the cattle on the earth are all commanded to be fruitful and multiply after their own kind.

What is the difference between morality and values


Values are defined by a finite individuals choice.
Morality is not defined by a infinite individual choice. But,
Morality is defined by an infinite beings choice
To have morality there must be someone who knows everything.
This is what Jesus said He is the truth. He is saying that he knows everything and has come to tell us what is truly true truth.
The Bible also states that he is the Light.  



I Am the Light of the World

12 Again Jesus spoke to them, saying,
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” 13 So the Pharisees said to him, “You are bearing witness about yourself; your testimony is not true.” 14 ....“Even if I do bear witness about myself, my testimony is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going, but you do not know where I come from or where I am going. 1Yet even if I do judge, my judgment is true, for it is not I alone who judge, but I and the Father[a] who sent me.

44Then Jesus cried out, 

“Whoever believes in me does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me. 45The one who looks at me is seeing the one who sent me. 46I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.
47“If anyone hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge that person. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world.
