Know what the Number 1 rated show on cable network television was last week?
THE BIBLE on the History Channel!!!
13.1 MILLION VIEWERS!!!!!
Hollywood is STUNNED! The critics are bashing it! The far left leaning liberals have been blindsided! You mean to tell me that it had more viewers than the pretentious American Idol and the scripted reality TV shows combined??
Main stream media is ignoring it mostly, other than a few over-opinionated journalists who for some reason believe they are smarter than the rest of us and feel compelled to tell us what it REALLY means! For example, one journalist spun it to say that “There is definitely a market for this kind of stuff in the Christian Minority groups in this country that Hollywood has been ignoring”!
When did Christians become a minority?
REALLY?? 247 MILLION people in a country of 315 MILLION Americans is a MINORITY?!?
(Ok, this is good place to pause and laugh)
Why is everyone so surprised? We live in a country where the Main Stream Media can’t be trusted to even do something as simple as report the truth without spinning it to support some special interest leeches higher up the political food chain, where politicians from BOTH political parties work harder at telling us lies and blaming the other party for our problems than they actually work at SOLVING our problems, where greed, corruption, and dishonesty are the new “NORM” and the loud minority complain about everything decent and good to the point that the SILENT MAJORITY of Us Christians end up letting them take God out of Schools, off Main Street, and out of public sight in the spirit of being tolerant when we really just don’t want to be bothered and we justify this by saying we’re turning the other cheek.
I’m sorry but COMPLACENCY does NOT classify as turning the other cheek!
As Christians many of us have become the tight lipped, judgmental, arm crossed guardians of the status-quo in our churches, protecting our precious RELIGIOUS traditions against the savage ravages of a younger generation who would worship in a more free way than we are comfortable with. We hold our pastors hostage with economic chains of control so we can have our ears tickled and our toes massaged instead of having them STEPPED on- then we wonder why no one is showing up for church on Sunday.
If a church in our community decides to get out of the boat and walk on the water by stepping outside their cozy church and having food drives and feeding and clothing the hungry and needy and taking care of the elderly and serving the sick then the rest of the churches in the community begin questioning their teaching and verbally crucifying the pastor and leaders of that church and tearing down their work in order to divert attention away from their own inadequacies as Christians in an increasingly Godless and lost society.
And we allow curriculum in our schools and universities that teaches religious tolerance of everything BUT Christianity and Jesus!
And while all this is going on people are hurting, confused, bewildered, unhappy and dissatisfied with their lives and longing for and actually crying out for REAL love, compassion, kindness, forgiveness, and TRUTH!!!!
Communities are dying out and Cities are being over run by crime and people are tired of it! Sick of it! AND it SCARES US!
To put it simply: people are looking for HOPE in a world of increasing hopelessness. And the ONE CONSISTENT source of that hope they seek is in a message that has not changed in over 2000 YEARS! That’s the message of Salvation and redemption through faith in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and the hope and promise of a better life here and in God’s kingdom in The Bible.
Sadly, many of us will never realize that God is all we need- until God is all we have left.
The Bible. Check it out!
Good Mini-series on The History channel.
And the BOOK is OUT OF THIS WORLD!
