Reclaim Our Dignity: Misleading Examples in the Media

REALLY

So in the past few days I’ve seen all these viral articles about a particular Love and Hip Hop Atlanta reality star releasing a pornographic video. This video is not “leaked “, but actually a full production planned and paid out for doing it.  THEN, I hear that this person if being awarded an endorsement deal with a major retailer.  Ungodly, unholy behavior is rewarded over righteousness, holiness and purity. This sends the wrong message to young girls and women. Instead of being encouraged get an education, work hard, be diligent and you receive the prize, it can be misconstrued that you should find someone rich and have a baby, then go have sex on tape and you will be running to the bank with your lottery ticket to cash in.

This is why it is so important that we keep our eyes on the Lord and our treasures stored up in Heaven. Sitting around watching these people destroy their lives for a quick buck. The “benefits” of getting this quick money will catch up with these people. The God of this world has them so blinded an full of greed that they will do anything for MONEY, ATTENTION, PLEASURE.

This behavior has already been prophesied in 2 Timothy 3: 1-5, “But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days.  People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.”

But it’s only temporary and fading. Soon enough her 15 minutes will be up. These same people that make these tapes, carrying on and acting a fool post messages of Facebook and twitter “praising God”.  God has nothing to do with such perversity so this is false praise, maybe praising a different God but not the Holy God of Heaven.

Proverbs  1:19 , “Such are the paths of all who go after ill-gotten gain;
it takes away the life of those who get it.”

Of course we all need money live, pay our bills, give to the Kingdom of God and are a blessing to overs, but we want to make produce wealth in an honorable way that is legal, moral, ethical.  God’s perfect plan for your life does not include have plans of pornography, lasciviousness, sexual immorality God hates sin.  He doesn’t want you sinning or doing things that will lead other people to sin against him.

In closing remember,  “ Riches won’t help you on the day of judgment, but right living can save you from death.”  – Proverbs 11:4  With that in mind live righteous , live Holy and seek the Lord with all year heart.

  1. Amen! And, as you’ve shared before, just because a woman gives of herself in this way, which is hyper-sexual sometimes in my opinion, doesn’t mean she is better off for it (e.g., it won’t secure her salvation, a man, career success, happiness, or anything else for that matter). And, as we know the LOVE of money is the root of all evil.
