2:17! Where has the day gone?? And I still have a trip to the store to make.
In what ways does media influence you?
What do you believe about yourself or others that is a direct result of marketing?
Journey went on to say renewal of the mind is a process of transformation. The media want to transform us from who we are to who ‘they’ desire us to be: People who buy their products so we can be beautiful, skinny, smarter, healthier, enlightened, and so on. And the news media what do they want us to be? Just like them – politically correct. You know what? I’ve just about had it up to here with politically correct. But that is not where I want to go with this, not today . 🙂
So tell me. How many of those ‘to be-s’ do you wish to be?
Me too! I’ve always wanted to be beautiful, but have never believed (except for one day) I am. Media helped convince me I am not. Shame on them! Shame on me for believing them. Here’s what I should believe.
Song of Solomon 6:4 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
4 “You are as beautiful as Tirzah, my darling, As lovely as Jerusalem, As awesome as an army with banners.
So should you.
Me too! But let us get real here! Are we really going to allow this sin saturated, money-grubbing, reprobate-minded media to continue to ‘transform’ us or are we going to believe the CREATOR of THE UNIVERSE?! Really!
1 Corinthians 2:16 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
16 For WHO HAS KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE WILL INSTRUCT HIM? But we have the mind of Christ.
Philippians 4:7 King James Version (KJV)
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
And now for the one you have been expecting, the one you can quote and the one we better start acting on. Really!
Romans 12:2 King James Version (KJV)
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
So! How will you answer Journey’s questions?
