1 John 2:15-17
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world.
Hollywood is so irrelevant and clinging desperately to any and everything to stay relevant. The Oscsrs continue to plunge because almost nobody cares what these folks, who happen to live in a fairytale bubble have to say. When will they understand?
I admit, some are pretty darn good entertainers but they’ve become so impossible to tolerate with the predictable rhetoric. Their platform, podium and position have created such ginormous egos that they actually believe we want to hear their political soapbox. Stay in your lane.
War continues to rage and chaos continues to arise from two corrupt countries with very broken leaderships, and yes, both countries are very nefarious in every way, so don’t be fooled.
Inflation and food crisis threaten the world, debunked leadership is a global crisis, and today’s headlines swirl around Will Smith and Chris Rock. This is news? Can we just get one big unanimous who gives a rip?
The power is in the hands of the wrong people. Actors, athletes, the media, so called politicians, some mis-guided educators (not all), leaders and other positions of prominence seem to speak and the masses follow. Intelligent critical thinking skills seem to be abandoned as people are easily swayed without considering any and all truth.
We have a potential Supreme Court justice who cannot define a woman and people are in awe of her ability to stand up and basically say, she is not educated enough to define what we’ve known since the beginning of time. As a woman, I’m thinking she’s delusional or appeasing to a deceived culture.
Just because opinions, views and thoughts may align with the masses, it doesn’t make them right. I don’t ever want to be caught up in the way of the world; the path that seems so right but leads to death. I don’t ever want to be influenced or have my opinions shaped by anyone or anything other than the Truth of God.
No, I’m not of popular opinion and I get that, but I wasn’t put on this earth to be applauded, celebrated or even liked. My purpose is to glorify God and have Him pleased. My intent is never to hurt people but I understand, my views offend. But even in that I will not compromise or fall prey to to delusions in our culture and what is seemingly happening in our world. There is more that lies beneath the headlines.
Truth is truth. It cannot be created by the simple minds of humans, that is a broken truth. Absolute truth comes from the Word of God. Yep, it is offensive alright, and sometimes I have difficulty embracing because I’m a flawed human and want to live my way. But it doesn’t take long for me to realize, I need Him. I need to follow and trust Him only. I don’t ever want to be persuaded, led, or influenced by a deeply fractured world. We all know where that will lead.
