In Times of Trouble, Americans Turn to TV

Entertaining propaganda

Recently, the observation was made that the best-selling object in America may STILL be the television set.

After all of the “advances” (computers, smartphones, wearable tech) which have been made to bring communication/information directly to each man, woman and child on the planet, it is STILL the TV which is central to the decor, activities and comfort of many Americans.

And not just any TV, but TVs with LARGE SCREENS.

It was also recently-remarked that one of the sights one can regularly see at income tax refund time (and, to a lesser extent, the holiday shopping season) is families lugging HUGE television sets to their cars from big box department stores.

When the discussion turned to why this might be, one suggestion was that in times of trouble, chaos or uncertainty, Americans turn to the authorities for reassurance that “everything is alright.”

For many Americans, turning on their TV in times of trouble is a sort of electronic comfort food.

A primary way to receive this official reassurance is from a talking head on a TV screen.

So, it appears Americans want to be told something which contradicts what their eyes and ears are telling them.

And they want to be told these lies while watching a 48″ (or larger) TV screen.

“That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD: Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits”
–Isaiah 30:9-10

DOES the reader own a television?

IN times of uncertainty, does the reader turn to the Word of God for direction?

OR does the reader turn on his TV in times of uncertainty to “see and/or hear what’s happening?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“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

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
