TV CONUNDRUM


TV CONUNDRUM

(This is opinion, of course!)

The evening before Easter

And what do we find on TV…

THE PRINCE OF EGYPT,

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS,

But little about J.C.!

Christian stations showing a movie,

KING OF KINGS, or similar fare…

A Chanukah special with cute girls or puppets

Are the most the world wants to share.

=

I’m glad for the Jewish contingent,

At last they are getting their due…

But Christians are now the ones to be shunned

Not allowed to get messages through.

Except a morning Mass or  Sunday service,

C.B.N in our area is off the air….

I guess being paid just wasn’t enough

Or that channel really didn’t care.

In the evening of Resurrection Sunday

Chanukah again stars (Hooray!)…

A Rankin & Bass Easter Bunny

Shows the rest of us how we should play.

Why Christian leaders did the compromise

Of blending our worship with theirs.

Was a conundrum we’ve paid for,   for years,

Our children in the sight of crossed hairs.

Those hares keep hopping around us,

Running circles around believers in God…

Compromise is the way into error,

We quietly should withdraw and be odd*.

—Jonathan Caswell

*God calls us to become His “peculiar people” (KJV) in Exodus 10:5; Deuteronomy 14:2 and

 Deuteronomy 26:18; Psalm 135:4, and 1st Peter 2:9.*

  1. On this Easter Sunday, terrific write Bless you and yours!

    • May His Spirit also be with you! Have added the above references—had to use my Dad’s ancient Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance to find “peculiar people”—the NIV uses different wording.

      • Glad you are with me, sharing your brilliant mind that works your pen, Many Thanks!

  2. I think I’m turning red with embarrassment (not really). Sure wish my Dad and Mom could hear this! Maybe they’re looking down now. Some folks think I should do another book or two. Having fun doing this, without a deadline! It may be true, but thank you for your great kindnesses!
