Exposing the Entertainment Industry

Hollywood ExposedThe entertainment industry is big business, it is all around us and we often use it to relax and forget the struggles of this world. We live in a crazy world, a world that is full of worries, fear, anger and uncertainty as foretold by Paul in 2 Timothy 3:1-4. We are all seeking for comfort and understanding – this is why so many of us turn to TV or the entertainment industry. Unfortunately, the media has replaced everything that should be important to us socially and prevents us from growing intellectually. Essentially, it has replaced Christ. Christ says:

Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Are we going to the TV instead of Christ to rest? Has entertainment become our comforter instead of the Spirit of Truth, who alone is the true Comforter?

John 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me.

More and more research is coming out about TV – how it affects the brain, impedes the development of social skills and induces hyper-activity  – but what about the spiritual aspect of the entertainment industry? We must be informed in order to make the right decision and we pray the following write up will give you some insight on this issue.

Physical affects to the brain

The Frontal Lobe – Sourced from Wikipedia

The main theme for these write ups is to show the importance of protecting the brain, particularly the frontal lobe. As conscious beings we are constantly required to make decisions in every area of our lives, and, perhaps without realising, we do it either for God or the Devil. The choice of watching television/movies or not is probably one of the major choices we can make in this conflict of worship of good or evil. No other medium have captured the thoughts and imaginations of so many lives and with so many hours as the TV does (average of 34 hours per week) . No wonder it is important to so many people. But what is the true cost of watching TV? There are many studies that show the TV contributes to have an effect on the body which includes weight gain, Internal Organs, and even your whole physical life. But most importantly, how does it affect the brain? The following presentations by Little Light Studios brings this altogether as well as looking at music:

It is becoming fact now that the TV affects the brain in a negative way and their are plenty of studies that show that TV is detrimental to the brain of the young children. The following video gives a good explanation on why this is:

Spiritual – Gnosticism (Knowledge)

The doctrines of any of various dualistic sects among the Jews and the early Christians who claimed possession of superior spiritual knowledge, explained the creation of the world in an emanational manner, and condemned matter as evil. www.thefreedictionary.com

Gnosticism come from the Greek word Gnosis which means knowledge, they say that it isn’t book knowledge but a secret knowledge that essentially resides inside you, i.e. you are God. We should be weary of this cult, as in its essence this was the very enticing lie of Satan to Eve in the Garden of Eden, while to the Gnostics the knowledge of sin is a good thing and leads us closer to be as god. They also turn the idea of God to an angry ‘god’ – a god that was cast out of a greater universe into a lesser unknown universe and becomes the devil, while Satan becomes the savior of the humans. This is known as inverted hermeneutic, turning the character of God upside down, from a loving Father to an angry and revengeful god, while in the meantime turning Satan into the saviour of the human race.

The following excerpt from Hollywood’s war on God explains really well what Gnosticism is all about:

 Gnosticism Exposed – Excerpt from: Hollywood’s War on God

As we can see, the philosophy of Gnosticism is very deceptive and as this video briefly showed – this idea of God is Satan and Satan is God is clearly rife within Hollywood. Hollywood has billions to spend and has had years of spreading their agenda through the hi-tech world of movies, TV and now the Internet. There are many movies that have deliberately tried to turn the character of God to look like Satan as well as making Satan’s character like God’s, or making Satan’s evil character look good. The Bible clearly says that we should look out for these instances:

Character of God vs Satan's
Character of God vs Satan’s

Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

The following are some more recent popular movies that show a deep revelation of gnostic thinking hidden within the story line:

The Matrix – Probably the most researched movie and is well referred to in sermons. Many have been deceived in thinking that this movie could have Christian beliefs at heart, but clearly there are gnostic themes throughout the movie. The start of the movie clearly shows a gnostic thinking as Neo takes a red pill to wake out of a controlled environment (the matrix) which alludes to Adam & Eve taking the fruit of knowledge of good and evil in a controlled environment (Garden of Eden or the Earth), which if you leave once – you will never be able to go back. This automatically and subconsciously places The matrix as a type of created Earth that the God of the Bible wanted from the beginning. When Neo meets the “architect” of The Matrix ( the Earth), we see an angry and revengeful creator willing to destroy the humanity. Is this the true representation of God the Father? Especially when Christ says that everyone who sees Christ sees the Father, John 14:9, and that God is Love, 1 John 4:8.

Neo finally had to leave the matrix in order to know that he was god himself and ultimately saved the human race by sacrificing himself. Has Satan become the Saviour? He also declares that he wants to wake us up from the ‘deception of the matrix’ – or the Bible.

Transformers – The battle of good and evil is clear in the Bible but is reflected from the opposite angle in the gnostic thinking.  Gnostic movies are so deceptive that when one might watch a movie he or she may get so confused as to which is the true good and true evil, and end up praising evil when they thought it was good and condemning good when thinking it was evil. In the movie ‘Transformers’ the Autobots (good robots and helpers of the humans) arrive to earth just as falling stars. Could this be Satan and his followers coming to earth as fallen stars as stated in Revelation 6:13? Are the Autobots really Satan and his fallen angels in the eyes of the gnostic directors of Hollywood?

There are many more movies that have a very Gnostic theme, for example X-Men, The Da Vinci Code, The Matrix trilogy, Constantine, Fight Club, Truman Show, Pleasantville, Total Recall, From Hell, League of Extraordinary Gentleman, Harry Potter, Bladerunner, Minority Report and so on. The following presentation (and more below) by Little Light Studios, clearly shows the hidden and deceptive teachings of the Hollywood Movies as well as comic books:

Coming out of Hollywood – Battle Field Hollywood

Clearly, watching movies is dangerous for our mind and thinking patterns, so why watch them? The above presentation makes a clear point – what would happen if instead of spending hours watching movies, TV and the Internet – we would rather study the Bible – we would be all ready to go home by now. As stated previously the brain is one of the most important parts of the body as it houses the mind and the Bible clearly says that we should protect the mind:

1 Peter 1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

So the question we have is – What are we beholding? Are we beholding Gnostic teachings and therefore becoming gnostic in belief and thought without even realizing it or are we beholding Christ and becoming like Christ?

Angus T Jones

Earlier in 2013 ago something amazing had happened, in fact, what we believe is a miracle that has put a wound to this horrible Entertainment industry. There is a TV sitcom show on the prime time television, an utmost disrespectful show that promotes adultery, sexual lust, lying, drinking, covetousness, and jokes, many times about Christianity, a show that no Adventist or Christian should watch (but unfortunately many do) called Two and a Half Men. Not to go into too much detail but just to explain a little bit to save you the trouble of seeing this horrible show; the show is about 2 men (originally 2 brothers) who raised up an 8 year old (when the show started) child named Jake. One of the men the father, is a week stature of a man, divorced and a bad example for any man especially a godly man. The other man, the brother (until a year ago), is a sick perverted man, bringing home different women each night, constantly drinking and joking about the rudest things. But the main focus of this article is on Jake also known as Angus T. Jones or shall I say A.T. Jones. Angus started his part in the show in 2003 aged 10, and now having turned 19, he has spoken out against the show and the Entertainment Industry in a 30 min interview/testimony. This testimony of Angus T Jones has gone viral, with the second half having reached over 2.3 million lost souls. These lost souls heard the truth not only about how ‘filthy’ the show is but many of the truths that the Bible teaches, especially about the Sabbath. I pray that you will take your time to watch the testimony in the videos below;
