A Sinful Selfie. Project Bible 365 Day (13)
If it’s been said once it’s been said a thousand times and if that’s not enough to grab your attention, we have Instagram for that. It’s often said that one single picture can say a 1,000 words. However with the creation of Instagram, these days photos are saying and revealing more than they should.Last week I talked about how rapper Kanye West blasphemed aganist God , by taking God’s name out of his own book and replacing it with the Rapper’s name ex: in Genesis where it says in Genesis 1:1 God created the Heavens and the Earth. In Mr. West’s book it says Kanye created the Heaven’s and The Earth. This is grounds for blaspheming aganist God. Long pause….. Here’s a link the open letter I wrote to Kanye West and the Christian publishing company known as Relevant Magazine…. How Relevant is Relevant Magazine?
Now let’s move on to Mrs. West AKA Kim Kardashian. If you have been keeping up with the Kardashians you are aware that recently Mrs. West posted a nude photo of herself from her batheroom and shared via Instagram… However this is nothing new to Mrs. Kim West because she also has published a book based on her own nudity. There is an elephant in the room and his name is America’s problem with pornography. It simply begins with a single photo. What do I mean by that? There are few moments where people these days can have and are entitled to privacy but if you take nude photos of yourself from the batheroom than where is the line drawn when it comes to celeberities and their privacy?
America’s in a downward spirial and sites like Instagram aren’t helping the situation.
Matthew 5:28King James Version (KJV)
28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
a picture certainly can say 1,000 words but how many words can pictures say about you if you’re not looking at the things that edify you. If you allow you’re self to be tempted by pornography or even a simple photograph. than my advice is to cut your Internet and turn your televisions off. If you don’t the devil will come into your home and enter through your eyes to give you even greater temptations. Don’t allow for this to happen.
Ephesians 4:27King James Version (KJV)
27 Neither give place to the devil.
Galatians 5:16-21King James Version (KJV)
16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
We are called to be children of the Light and because we are called as such, the Lord let The Apostle Paul know what we as Christians should think on. Don’t ever take the Love Commands of God lightly and don’t ever think he asks too much of you, however for those of you who don’t know the Lord today, you are walking by the flesh and often times, the flesh may seem strong in public but behind closed doors the flesh is weak. If you don’t have Jesus in your heart tonight and your sins are not washed away by the blood of the lamb you have the scales on your eyes that is from the devil. This is why some of who claim to be children of the light are so confused when it comes to reading your Bibles. If you are not delivered from your sinful state, the devil will pick and choose what he wishes you to see. He will only reveal half the story and sometimes not even that.
How do I know there is scales on people eyes who don’t have the blood of Jesus applied to their souls….. The Word tells me so….
Acts 9:17-18King JamesVersion (KJV)
17 And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.
18 And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.
So the next time you snap a selfie be sure you know where it’s going to and most importantly who can see it. This concludes tonight’s message on Project Bible 365 Day (13) A Sinful Selfie.
