by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies – Are We Degenerating?
Editor’s note: Nancy is bemoaning what she sees as a horrible slide into perversion that came first through movies. Then she shifts to television. Knowing that Nancy was raised never going to movies because she was afraid the Rapture would come and she’d be left behind is rather revealing. No ‘Flywheel’ or ‘God’s Not Dead’ for her.
What I share with you below may seem archaic. Even unbelievable in this society in which we live. However, it reveals how the bar of God’s standard continues to lower in every generation.
I grew up as a child never entering a movie theater. It was considered evil. My mother, who has since passed away, never went into a movie theater in her life. Nor did my husband’s mother! When I was older and began to go to a “good” movie, I remember saying to my mother, “Mother, you could come and see this movie. It is totally wholesome.” But she replied, “Oh no, the Lord might come while I am there!” And she wouldn’t want to be found in a movie theater if the Lord came for her!
But of course, when television came in, all standards went out the door. Now, many Christians receive into their homes all the filth and rubbish of the world. They watch adultery and fornication, and worse, without batting an eye! Many Christians go off to every new movie that comes without any discretion! No wonder we don’t see the power of God moving in our midst today. We are a lukewarm people–overcome with mediocrity, complacency, ordinariness, passivity, and middle-of-the-road blindness!
