In the Wake of An Unnatural Disaster (Part Five)


Commentary; #1307c; 12 minutes
Given 06-Feb-16

Description: (hide)

John Ritenbaugh references an advertisement by a large popular Protestant megachurch in Gastonia, North Carolina, which regularly uses the allurement of show business and entertainment to draw large crowds. The charismatic pastor has purposely scheduled the services for late Sunday afternoon, to allow people sufficient time to indulge in other activities (family, shopping, etc.) before spending a little sliver of relaxing kick-back time with God. In other words, God is reserved for last place on the scheduled list of priorities. Consequently, nominal 'Christians' are steadily losing any knowledge of God and His purposes that they may have once had in the distant past. The elite educational leadership have made sure that the Word of God has been denigrated if not altogether extirpated from public school curriculum. Even the prominent atheist Richard Dawkins was alarmed at the dumbed-down state of young people, whose ignorance of the literary heritage of the King James Bible has impoverished their appreciation of English literature, greatly stunting their cultural growth. As a second example, consider the comments of noted columnist and Pulitzer Prize winner Kathleen Parker of the Washington Post. She revealed her woeful lack of knowledge about biblical imagery by misinterpreting a statement concerning "the body of Christ" made by Presidential candidate Ted Cruz. Sadly, American educators are more conversant with the fiction of media and pop culture than they are of legitimate historical documents. The pathetically gullible American public get their concepts about the Bible from movies and television rather than reading the Bible. Consequently, they have lost their anchorage as to what constitutes truth and what constitutes falsehood and prevarication.
