Some Thoughts For You to Ponder

We are still doing the Bible Study called "The Walk of Repentance". We still all think that this is the best Bible study we have ever done. I wanted to share something from this week's study.

We had to look up many verses that told about being steadfast in the faith, about enduring, about encouraging those around us daily to endure. Then he gave us verses to look up about how people are going to be deceived in the end times. Then he shared the following:

I recently heard a message from Romans 12:2 by a minister for whom I have tremendous respect. He said that God is trying to transform our "fallen" minds into the mind of Christ. Although the anti-christ wasn't the topic of his message, he made a very poignant statement that bears repeating. He said that those who continually watch television are keeping their minds within the mentality of this world. He said that one day a man would appear on that television claiming to have all the answers for the problems of mankind. He went on to say that Christians often naively think that they will be able to withstand the deception of the anti-christ when he comes, but those who watch television are at present aligning their minds with him already. He said it would be impossible for them to withstand the heavy delusion that will come upon the world that day. He said this: "If they can't say 'no' to that television now, what makes them think they will be able to say 'no' to it when that day comes?"

Then we were told to look up the word transform in a dictionary. We were to write down the definition and then describe it in context of our minds being transformed from the thinking of this world into the thinking of real Christianity.

I would love to hear what you think. If you totally disagree that is OK, but be nice in saying so.

AMEN!!! I totally agree. I find myself being very, very glad to know nothing of what goes on with the TV these days.

I really do agree with that.
I think that is what happened in the election as well.
The media was one-sided, and people bought into it!
