I recently started watching Insecure (I know I’m late). I’ve been hearing a lot about it and I just felt it’s something I need to watch but I just didn’t get to it. Recently however, I fortunately stumbled into it and boy was I glad.
Watching insecure has solidified my belief and conviction that it is high time believers get into media.
We need to start producing shows, movies and series that propagate the principles of Christ.
The devil has taken over the media world; going by the type of hyped TV Series/shows/movies.
Take for instance Insecure, the amount of sex, nudity, foul language in it are poisonous to our soul and not conducive to our spirituality.
The irony of it all is that these shows are very addictive with great storylines, but that’s just the bait. In between these shows is just enough poison to do the job. Example, one watching Insecure and you would be tempted to think sleeping around is ok. Sex is a total stranger; sex with someone who you don’t even know well is ok. But it is not ok.
There are stuffs behind these things; Series/shows/movies we subscribe to and watch are indoctrinating us to accept abnormal things so they become normal.
These movies we watch carelessly are doing more harm than good to us.
No wonder you would ask Christians whether premarital sex is a sin and the house is divided. We are now walking in blurred lines, there are no more clear-cut white/black, it’s now grey areas.
Premarital sex is not normal. Sex is not casual. The media has made it look that way. With every person you sleep with, you have left a piece of your soul with that fellow. And if you continue like that, you will wake up one day and discover you are empty. There’s nothing left in you.
Could this be the reason we have wrong relationships? Most marriages of nowadays are already dead on arrival. We have ignored the God way of doing love/relationships/marriage. TV shows are now the blueprints to which we tailor our lives.
The devil is working overtime and he’s using the biggest tool of all; Media to pollute our minds that what we used to call abnormal we now make excuse for.
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Romans 12:1
The Word of God is still very clear on what we should do with our bodies.
As a child of God who wants to remain pure, you have to be sensitive to the kind of movies you watch.
We have to change the narrative.
Believers it’s time for us to produce our own shows that are based and founded on the Word of God.
If you have a calling in media, film and television, it’s time to start propagating the gospel of Christ with your talent. Ministry is not limited to the pulpit.
Lastly, be careful what you allow into your eye gates, your ear gates.
Be careful little eyes what you see.
Thank you little eyes for reading, I look forward to your thoughts.
