Foolish Talk

4 04 2008

3You are God’s people, so don’t let it be said that any of you are immoral or indecent or greedy. 4Don’t use dirty or foolish or filthy words. Instead, say how thankful you are. 5Being greedy, indecent, or immoral is just another way of worshiping idols. You can be sure that people who behave in this way will never be part of the kingdom that belongs to Christ and to God.6Don’t let anyone trick you with foolish talk. God punishes everyone who disobeys him and says foolish things. 7So don’t have anything to do with anyone like that (Ephesians 5:3-7 CEV). 

What kind of “foolish talk” is tricking Christians today? It is a message which approves violating the biblical principles of purity in speech and conduct in the name of accomplishing a higher purpose. It is a message that removes the sting of guilt by dismissing it as a cultural remnant of the traditional church model. It is pragmatic in methodology and post-modern in ideology. It is systematically undermining the absolutes upon which true Christianity rests under the guise of restoring Christianity.            





Jesus is not a Life-enhancement Product!

8 03 2008

comedy_hg_wht_st.gifNASHVILLE, March 8 /Christian Newswire/ — “It is ironic that Christian broadcasters will be crowding into the Gaylord Opryland Resort’s Delta Ballroom on Monday night, March 10, for a “Night of Comedy,” says 50-year veteran Christian broadcaster, Dr. Vic Eliason, founder of the VCY America Radio Network and Channel 30 Television in Milwaukee. Eliason served in the past as president of Midwest NRB for two years and as NRB Board member for 18 years. He is currently attending the NRB Convention underway in Nashville.

“As Christian broadcasters we are facing a culture and nation that is increasingly hostile to biblical truth. We are looking at the possible resurrection of the Fairness Doctrine that would have a devastating impact on many of our ministries. We are facing one of the most important elections in our nation’s history that will have huge consequences in all areas of life. We face terrorism worries, economic tremors and a steady encroachment on our civil liberties,” he said. “The moral squalor in our land is ever worsening as evidenced by the multi-billion dollar porn industry that flows into our nation’s homes to the harm of our children. Nearly 50 million preborn Americans have lost their lives in the womb, and the numbers continue to mount. In the extremely limited time we have here in Nashville, it is tragically significant that Christian broadcasters are spending Monday evening laughing their sides off at three comedians at the Night of Comedy, and following that up with Monday Night Madness an hour later for a meet and greet with the air-brushed celebrities of the music industry.

Eliason says he has seen vast changes in the landscape in Christian broadcasting over the decades. “When I began in Christian broadcasting years ago, there was a seriousness, a gravity among those whose driving passion was to air an unadulterated Gospel message. Ministry was the focus. We now have an “Industry” focus that results in Disney and Fox consultants coming in to tell us how to present the Gospel.

“A Disney exec is going to be telling us about, ‘The Power of a Story’. We need the creators of Cinderella to tell us how to present the story of the living Christ? What ever happened to the power of the Holy Spirit?” asks Dr. Eliason. “The emphasis today is not on the preaching of the Word. We’re told that nobody will listen to preaching any longer, that only images will suffice. Yet Scripture tells us in I Corinthians 1:21 that it is through the preaching of the Word that the Holy Spirit works to convert souls. In our endless and expensive quest for cultural relevance, we are losing the heart of the Gospel message, which is to deny ourselves, take up our crosses, and follow Christ. Unlike what many religious broadcasters are airing today, Jesus is not a life-enhancement product.”

Dr. Eliason concludes by saying, “What a powerful thing it would be if all of those broadcasters who are still committed to getting the true Gospel out to the masses through media would kneel and seek God at a mass prayer meeting in the Delta Ballroom. We could confess corporately that all of our slick media techniques, all of the money that is now the motivation in so much of religious broadcasting, and all the man-made strategies are ultimately worthless in changing hearts without the power of God in our ministries. What we are needing as Christian broadcasters at this hour is repentance and a return to the core purpose for our vast media assets—to unapologetically preach Christ crucified, the only hope of the world.”

Dr. Vic Eliason served as a president of Midwest NRB and served on the NRB Board of Directors for 18 years. He is founder and Executive Director of the VCY America Radio Network and Channel 30 Television in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and hosts the nationally syndicated radio show, Crosstalk, heard on 84 stations each day. Vic Eliason was a Christian radio pioneer in the Midwest back when FM was in its infancy and just celebrated 50 years of Christian broadcast ministry.





Connecting with Sex for Jesus

A former Baptist pastor markets his relevant church with sex. The demeanor of the participants on camera is almost as interesting as the comments of the reporters.

See for yourself… here

Titus 1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.





Foolish Free Speech

25 01 2008

“A new, cutting-edge, political TV show challenges Islam with biting humor tomorrow night, placing the face of the prophet Muhammad onto a cookie and then having it eaten on camera.”   (See cookie & read story here.)  

This is another example of reckless extremism.

Intentionally offending and insulting others is un-Christian. This juvenile exercise in “free speech” does not honor Christ and very likely will lead to more bloodshed.





Pushy Christians

12 12 2007

I was walking across a bridge one day, and I saw a man standing on the edge, about to jump off. So I ran over and said “Stop! Don’t do it!”

“Why shouldn’t I” he said. I said, “Well, there’s so much to live for!” He said, “Like what?” I said, “Well…are you religious or atheist?” He said, “Religious,” I said, “Me too!

Are you monotheistic or polytheistic?” He said “monotheistic.” I said, “Me too!

Are you Christian or Muslim?” He said, “Christian.” I said, “Me too!

 

Are you Catholic or Protestant?” He said “Protestant.” I said, “Me too!

Are you charismatic or non-charismatic?” He said, “Non-charismatic.” I said, “Me too!

Do you believe in predestination or free will?” He said, “Both.” I said, “Me too!

Are you a liberal or a conservative?” He said, “Conservative.” I said, “Me too!

Are you Presbyterian or Baptist?” He said, “Baptist.” I said, “Me too!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Do you use the King James Version or some other translation?” He said, “King James.” I said, “Me too!  

Do you use the Scofield or Thompson Chain?” He said, “Scofield.” I said, “Me too!

Do you use the New Scofield or the Old Scofield?” He said, “The new.”

I said, “You heretic!” and pushed him off.





Whatever works?

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud,… lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God…
