We Have The Wrong Heroes In America!
By David J. Stewart | May 2013
Proverbs 28:4, “They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.”
It is sad that America's biggest heroes are total losers in God's eyes. Our youth are continually bombarded with losers as their heroes. Instead of looking up to scientists, doctors and teachers; our youth instead admire professional athletes, homosexual singers and sexually immoral actors. Consequently, you've got millions of teenagers whose goal in life is to become the next Michael Jordan. Some people think that's a good thing, but what about morality and character? Some of the most sexually immoral people in our nation are professional athletes. Talent seeks attention, but wisdom pays attention. Our children ought to be taught to seek wisdom, but instead, they are taught to seek talent, fame and money. No wonder our culture is so messed up! You can't build a healthy society where most kids want to grow up to play ball.
Teenagers today are addicted to video games. How many teenagers love books and admire inventors and engineers? Instead, our youth are infatuated with loser like Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and The Jonas Brothers. Here are some of the lyrics from Walt Disney's disgusting Chelsea Kane (Staub) singing, “It's All About Me”...
It's all about me
It's all about me (Oh yeah)
Me, myself and I
It's all about me
Self has no place in the Christian life. God never rewards anyone for selfishness. Walt Disney gives all the wrong role models for our youth. Shame on Disney!!! They rake in billions-of-dollars each year at Disney, by corrupting kids lives.
Children are extremely impressionable and will become what they hang around. Watching television is virtually the same as if you personally associate with those people. If you watch garbage on TV, then it is going to have an impact on you. It's inevitable. American television is banned in many Arab countries because of its negative influence upon woman and youth. Even Communist China bans certain U.S. commercials because of content too risqué, lewd and sexually suggestive.
Americans are infatuated with crime drama on television. A popular biography aired lately on television is titled “GANGSTERS: AMERICA'S MOST EVIL!” Americans can't seem to get enough knowledge about evil, violence and sleaze.
“The pagan in Africa gets a piece of wood and builds him a god; the intellectual in the university gets his mind and builds himself a god.”

Worship Only God!
By David J. Stewart
I have gleaned the following thoughts from listening to Pastor Jack Hyles' powerful and needful sermon, HOW WE GOT HERE. Dr. Hyles explains Romans Chapter one. Please listen to the MP3 sermon.
Anytime you find someone who denies Christ's deity, they are lowering Jesus to the level of humanity. That is humanism! Humanism is pulling God down and raising man up! Humanism is exalting man and bringing down God. When you have a little God and a big man, you have nothing but homosexuality, adultery, abortion, licentiousness and a wicked society. Idolatry is the forerunner of immorality and wickedness in any society. America turned idolatrous before she became immoral.
Anytime that man is exalted and God is lowered, apostasy results. This is why America is so evil today. We have brought God low in our schools, government, businesses and even churches. People today worship the church more than God. It is idolatry! People worship the body! People worship sports athletes and singers! We ought to love the church, but worship only God! We ought to love our families, but worship only God! We ought to praise the Lord continually. God alone deserves the place of worship in our heart.
Water baptism is good, but it's not the way of salvation. Don't worship baptism. Don't worship denominations. Don't worship men. Never put a man where only Jesus should be. Sometimes God takes from us the thing that you put in His place. Don't do it! Don't place anything over God in your mind. Intellectuals may not have an idol in their home, but they have an idol in their philosophies. They have an idol in their mind. WORSHIP ONLY GOD!!!
“Humanism is mental idolatry.” —Dr. Jack Hyles, from the sermon titled, How We Got Here
