Marriage On The Rock… Protect Your Christian Marriage by Guarding Your Mind

How many times have you watched a scary movie and then dreamed about it after you went to bed? That is what happens when we watch movies that are not for the Christian. When we continue to watch movies like this we begin to think it’s reality and we start believing what they say and do.

Ephesians 6:17-18 (NIV) (17) And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. (18) And pray in the spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.

Movies are not the only thing that can cause you to have the incorrect beliefs. Television shows, the news, the radio, CD’s, DVD, and games can do the same as movies do.

How many marriages have been destroyed by pornography? Or Facebook relationships?

We really need to be careful about what we watch, what we listen to, and what we play because these can have bad effects on us. They are somewhat manipulative and that can cause us to lose our faith. These types of things can also cause us to do the wrong things. We see what happens with these things and we begin to think it’s ok to do them as well.

God doesn’t like it when we do that, so we must not do it. The best way to avoid these problems is to watch shows that are for Christians, listen to Christian music, and play games that are appropriate for Christians. He has created these things so we don’t have to worry about moving away from our faith because of what we watch or listen to. It makes it easier to deal with day to day things when we don’t have to worry about that as well.

Now this doesn’t mean you can’t watch or listen to things that are not directly related to Christianity. There are shows, movies, music, and games that are not Christian, but they are still good for us to watch. You need to pay attention to the rating, people involved in it, and what it’s about. Usually you will know right away if you look at those things if it’s good for you or not.

Some things that you won’t want to watch would be horror movies, music that you wouldn’t want to listen to would be satanic, and games that you wouldn’t want to play would be ones that are about stealing or killing others. Use your best judgment and think about God when you make your decision. When you do this, you will make the right choices.

What we watch on TV, listen to on the radio, and games we play have a direct impact on our minds. We have to guard our minds and protect them from evil that we see and hear. Keeping our faith is important and we don’t need anything to try and steer us away from that. If you have trouble, pray about it and let God lead you in the right direction. He will tell you what’s right and what’s wrong. Then follow his lead and you will be well on your way to a safe environment for your mind.

Comparative Religion Slaughterhouse of the Mind

A young college woman sits down at her desk on the first day of a course on comparative religion. She thinks it’s a good deal. She gets college credit for a casual review of her own Christian faith and gets to learn about other world religions.


The professor enters the room fashionably late. He’s casually dressed in frumpy clothes and his hair is in a thin gray ponytail that’s so tight it stretches all the wrinkles out of his face. What follows in that first class and throughout the rest of the semester is a battle for the souls of the students in the class.


The professor’s secular, atheistic, materialist bias is revealed from the first time he opens his mouth. He nevertheless gives all religions a modicum of respect except for traditional Christianity for which he reveals unvarnished disdain.


The professor, when dealing with the Christian faith, attacks it in a manner commonly used in comparative religion classes in college. His bright shining lie is the claim that in the early centuries of Christian history there were several “Christianities,” each with their own sacred texts, competing with each other on a more or less equal basis to become the dominant mainstream branch.


(Incidentally, the murder mystery thriller, The Da Vinci Code, promoted the view that a feminist Gnostic sect had the greater claim to be the true Christian faith.) The truth is far different. The truth is that traditional apostolic Christianity, which is the Christianity of the New Testament, was the mainstream form of Christianity from the very earliest days of the church.


The Gnostic sects are very different from traditional Christianity and are by no means on an equal scholarly footing with the traditional Christian faith.


Nevertheless, this “60’s geek” professor with his persuasive words is able to shake the faith of some young Christian students. A careful student who takes some time to do some research will see through the “strawman” the professor has set up.


The “strawman” tactic is commonly used in debates and lectures. It consists of distorting Christianity into a strawman of inaccuracies and contradictions and then attacking the strawman and giving the impression that Christianity has been disproven.


Let me give a thumbnail sketch of early church history. The religion of the ancient Greeks was Olympianism which is similar to the Hinduism of present day India. The Romans essentially adopted Olympianism but referred to the various gods by Latin instead of Greek names.


Hindus believe that the material world is “Maya” which means illusion. The Hindus essentially believe that material objects don’t really exist. The ancient Greek Olympians similarly had a disdain for the material world.


To them, anything physical or material was lower than the realm of spirit and was corrupt. This is why many people of the ancient world had a hard time accepting the Christian doctrine of the incarnation.


The incarnation is the Christian doctrine that Jesus, Himself being divine, was born as a baby and grew to manhood. In other words God took on human flesh and dwelt among us.


The Olympian, Hindu-like religion dominated the thinking of the Pagans of the ancient world. It is from this soil that Gnosticism grew. Gnosticism was a syncretism (mixture) of Christianity and Olympianism. Full blown Gnosticism didn’t appear until the second or third centuries AD.


The sacred texts of Gnosticism were written in the second and third centuries which removes them a long way from the historical events of the life of Jesus and the apostles. Traditional Christianity and its sacred texts which comprise the New Testament were mainstream and generally accepted from the earliest days of church history long before gnosticism reached full flower.


The best scholarship shows that the books of the New Testament were written in the first century. They were universally accepted by the early Christians and were later formally codified as the New Testament.


The Gnostic writings attempt to connect Christ to a Greek philosophical and religious worldview. The Gnostic writings make little mention of real events of real history. The traditional gospels and epistles of the New Testament rightfully connect Christ to the Hebrew worldview and make many references to real events that occurred in real history.


The New Testament shows that Jesus was the promised Messiah of Israel who came in fulfillment of over 300 Old Testament prophecies. No other faith, including Gnosticism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Shintoism and Jainism has anything to compare with the Old and New Testament record of prophecy and fulfillment of prophecy.


Most sacred writings of other faiths contain no prophecies at all. I have often said that the many hundreds of Bible prophecies and their fulfillments are like God’s signature on His holy book and prove that God inspired the writing of the Bible.


The professor in that comparative religion class would do well to look into the matter of prophecy and fulfillment of prophecy. If he does he will find that traditional biblical Christianity is beyond compare! Gnosticism is a faith different from Christianity and it came centuries later.

Bill Nugent, a defender of the Christian faith, has written many articles on
Christianity, philosophy and science. He has also written books that give Bible
based teaching on sanctification and that caution against the error of legalism.

Exercising Your Body And Mind With Games

You are probably familiar with the exceptional benefits of playing a game. Regardless of one’s age and physical ability, games such as golf , billiards, board games, etc. are considered to be those types of recreational activities that people select to try in order to increase their mental and/or physical skills while enjoying the excitement. But since games are played primarily for the mere enjoyment they offer, some people tend to consider them unnecessary and a waste of time. Nothing could further away from the truth. Games increase a person’s capabilities and assist in developing a better understanding of ourselves. Games should be fun for one to want to continue practicing them, but they can also have an educational nature. Most importantly, games can affect a person’s psychological state leading to excitement and the feeling of one being proud for an accomplishment. Games are not a waste of free time. Actually free time is the time one should devote in exploring his or her abilities through games and have fun in educating and exercising his or her body and mind.

Generally, a game consists of a goal that its players try to reach and usually has a set of rules within which a person has to succeed accomplishing the desired objective. These commonly agreed boundaries exist so as to test peoples’ skills and invite them to develop new ways in managing the obstacles that might hinder them from attaining the game’s goal. But, due to the vast variety of known games all around the world, agreeing on a single definition has been rather challenging. People in different time periods, countries, and contexts, have tried to capture the essence of games and come up with a classification that could serve all games’ purposes. Upon examining some etymological dictionaries, one can conclude that games are a creative expression of the human spirit through the creation of an activity that has an entertaining, instructive and competing element. Regardless if a game is played by a single individual or requires competing teams, involves physical as well as mental activity, has a concrete or loose set of rules and structure, needs some or all of the available resources, it always leads to an outcome. There is usually a winner and a looser and whether a participant belongs to the one or to the other side of this simple distinction makes all the difference in the world.

With the plethora of existing games for different target groups like kids, teenagers, adults or seniors, anthropologists have proposed their classification under three major clusters. One can decide to play a game of skill, which can be mental or physical. Checkers for example use their mental skills to successfully complete a game of chess, while runners use their body’s capacity to overcome natural obstacles like that of wind and gravity, or their own bodies’ ability to outrun itself. The second game category is that of strategy games, like the Monopoly board game that requires from participants to reach a particular outcome over a specific time frame based on their available resources. Third, there are games of chance that base their popularity on economic insecurity and are associated with cultures that place a high value on personal responsibility. Finally, people tend to play mixed games. These games, like soccer (football) and basketball, involve both physical skill and strategic thinking and in many cases their outcome is based on chance.

Now that you know how important is for you to play games, next time someone invites you to participate in another friendly baseball match do not try to avoid the invitation because you think it is a waste of time. Games, despite their character can help you clear your mind and can change your mood. Thus, tomorrow get up, pick your favorite game, find your opponents, make it your new hobby, and experience the tremendous effect a game’s round can have in your life.
