You must mean the BIBLE ? If so It is the wisest answer that I have seen!
Coy , I agree with most of your write up but not all.
I didnt agree with what the writer said when he made mention of the video games and rock music.
The video games of yesterday didnt have action heros ripping heads off and hearts out or blasting away at the cops and then speeding off. you may say what do you mean well these games have been ran through the minds of Americas children and now they are starting to come to young adult age and we are seeing the monsters that WE have created , yes mom and dad has set back and let little jimmy's brain get programmed by these violent video games and now we see the results . Parents have lost the ability to say no to their kids when they need to say NO your not watching that , your not allowed to run with the popular crowd . Just because everyone is doing it doesnt mean its right. These video games and horrer movies have taught the youth to be numb to life . The proof is in this young mans actions he killed his own mother ! Killed little precious children , teachers ,women .
If you believe the bible at all then you can see in this verse were it warns about violent video games and movies in this short but to the point verse . If we would all ask ourselves this question " is it wicked" before we viewed it then we would be better off .
Psalms 101 verse 3
I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes:
God knew that there is a danger in what we see thats why he gave us this verse but we know better than God and we want give ear to him .
II Timothy Chapter 2 Verse 19
Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity .
God said depart from iniquity and rock music is iniquity !
Todays youth (not all) but this young man was taught and I would just about bet the house he indulged on violent video games and or horror movies .
End result he was a cold blooded killer that had no value on his mothers life, his life and the victims lifes . Neither did he have any respect for authority..
My personal opinion is this behaviour startes at the home but could be avoided if we the parents would raise our children to fear God but we must set the example before our children . Too many christians playing church but not living church monday thru sunday on the job and off the job. I'm afraid the blame is on us. Not exactly what folks want to hear.
