News Flash!

That which has been is what will be, that which is done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun. Eccl 1:9

News flash – sin has existed since Adam and Eve bit the fruit.
That sin has progressively got worse.

Currently there is much talk about Beauty and the Beast.
I can understand the frustration of parents with the introduction of a gay character in a beloved children’s story.

News flash – homosexuality is not new. It has existed for thousands of years. It existed during the time of Moses so God put a prohibition about it in the Law. (Leviticus 18)
Homosexuality exists in the world you live in! Your children see it, hear about it, and may be introduced to it at some point.
It is taught as natural. I don’t call it natural, I call it sin.
You may not like it but it should not come as a shock to you.

News flash – other sins are presented in movies too.
The entertainment industry is full of adultery, fornication, lying, murder, wizards, and using God’s name in a slanderous way.

News flash – Jesus said, “I am not of this world.” John 8:23
He said His kingdom was not of this world. (John 18:36)
So it should not surprise you when sin is presented and glorified in this world. You may not like it and you don’t have to like it.

God’s word tells you “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 lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life — is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.” 1 John 2:15-17

News Flash – you can teach your children (and others) about sin and the need of forgiveness in our lives.
