When there is no truth, appearances become very important.
The image presented to the outside world becomes the most important thing when that image is all there is.
Which is one reason HOLLYWOOD has always valued “image” above reality. It’s doubted that nowhere in the world was “image” more important to an industry than to Hollywood in the 1930s.
Hollywood’s entire premise has been creating alternate realities–with is another way of presenting lies.

Hollywood has spent much time, effort and money to create well-known euphemisms for “changing perception” and “lies.”
One was the “magic of Hollywood.” There’s no wonder that in Hollywood, the word “glamour” was all-important. It soon became important to the rest of America too. Glamour was the perfect word for Hollywood.
Glamour originally was a term applied to a magical-occult spell that was cast on somebody to make them see something the spell-caster wished them to see, when in fact it was not what it seemed to be. In the late 19th century terminology, a non-magical item used to help create a more attractive appearance gradually became known as ‘a glamour’.
So, glamorous is really the illusion a person presents to the outside world of being something they are not. When Hollywood reporters write of an actor having someone “under their spell,” they probably are not waxing poetic.
“Glamour” is only the tip of the iceberg. To chronicle the true exploits of Hollywood, one would have to submerge oneself into a highly-corrosive bath of the occult. The regular episodes of individual depravity can be easily found by anyone with 15 minutes and an Internet connection.
Listing even the worst of these episodes is beyond the scope–and length–of this article.
For centuries, the reputation of theater and those employed as actors was a disreputable one. Hollywood changed that in a matter of years with a carefully-orchestrated make-over, accomplished with lots of help from the Corporate Media. Corporate Entertainment gave the enemy another important weapon against established biblical truth–alongside the Corporate Media
Suddenly, actors and actresses became respectable–and “glamorous” was more important to Americans than “good character.”
There is no better way of being reminded of the type of person who was drawn into the motion picture industry, than two signs that were featured in a short history of Hollywood’s Knickerbocker Hotel. Both date from about 1915–when the motion picture industry was turning the Hollywood area from rural to glitzy. Both signs were posted by locals.
One sign read “No dogs or actors allowed.”
The other: “Actors pay in advance.”
Americans appear to have been a much better judge of character in 1915 than almost one hundred years later.

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
Hollywood is the embodiment of the world.
Hollywood is all about sex, money and fame: the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life.

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
—2 Corinthians 4:3
