1185. Occurrence given to Raymond Aguilera on 29 July 1998 at 8:15 AM.

The Lord brought it to my attention, that He was the One who led me to watch the television programs, 'Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher', and 'The Jerry Springer Show'. When I first began to watch this 'Politically Incorrect' show, I thought some of the comments people made were interesting, but the more and more I watched; the program began to show me how far people have walked away from God. Bill Maher's attitude seemed angry and anti-Christian when the topic of the Bible or Christian values were mentioned, but at the same time he tried to sound like he was a righteous man. It was interesting, but it hurt.

A few months ago I stumbled on this Jerry Springer show. When I watched it the first time it frightened me. It made me want to weep to see people fighting on the television before my eyes. That first night I could not sleep thinking about it. Seeing this daughter and mother-in-law physically fight on television. Then months later, I saw it three or four times again.

Then I began to wonder and I asked myself, "Why am I watching this stupid show with people fighting and hitting each other, with all kinds of obscene subjects, and with the audience cheering them on?"

Then this morning the Lord said, "I led you to watch these shows. I wanted to show you how far this country has gone away from God. How bad is made to look good and how people will cheer it, crave it, desire it, and idolize it. These two shows are only EXAMPLES of the reason for the wrath of God. These are just two programs that show you how the world is changing. How sin has spread around the world through television."

I was hurt to see these things because it brought into sharp focus what we have become or are becoming and the SIN that it is in the Eyes of the Lord. (over)
