Last month one friend asked another to the movies….to see the movie POSSESSED. From what we’re told, this 2012 movie is the most fast paced, extremely scary, and very gory film to date. Hmmm, nothing strange in the invite, you say? Well the two involved were Christians!
Needless to say, the two did not go to the movies. Why? Well because Christians need to guard what they watch, hear, and taste. Tons of Scriptures come up to mind here:
1. Watch and pray…. Mark 14:38
2. Abstain from all evil… I Thessalonians 5:22
3. Resist the devil and he will flee… James 4:7
4. Lead us not into temptation…. Matthew 6:13
5. Think on things that are lovely, good report…. Phillipians 4:8
Besides violating these Scriptures, that movie, or any other horror flick, plants seeds of demonic activity inside of your soul and spirit. Whatever enters your gates: your eyes, your ears, your mouth, are seeds. All seeds grow and birth something, whether its a door to more of the same or a ripe fruit from the seed. We are responsible in stewarding how every minute of our lives our spent. We cannot afford to allow satanic entertainment to have an entry in our lives. Many Christians are already numbed because of the many doors of some things labeled ‘entertainment’ has been allowed to be opened within them. Jesus said that ‘the prince of this world is coming and he has nothing in Me’. Make a resolve to review everything you are recieving and reject those things that are not like Christ or are ungodly.
