Indoctrination by the Media
'For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and power, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places.' ~ St Paul, Letter to the Ephesians
The average music video or Hollywood film indoctrinates both adults and children and leads them into sin far more effectively than anyone but a Saint can lead a soul to Jesus because the media is a constant presence in most people's lives. It is very rare - almost unheard of - for the average person to receive the message of the Gospel from any film or music nowadays. This is an indication of the ferocity and intensity of the battle that Satan is waging against God and against mankind.
This is why, however small the parts we play, or however insignificant we believe our writing for Christ and His Church may at times feel, the new media is now one of the only places outside of a Church in which the message of Salvation can be communicated effectively without censorship. The Church militant and its presence in the new media serves as a chink of light upon a world becoming enveloped in darkness.
For the vast majority of children, the mass media, music, music video and Hollywood are the major sources for their moral education, indoctrination and formation. If you can find a Hollywood actor or actress against 'gay marriage' or abortion, I'd be interested in their names.
If you can find a pop or rock star against 'gay marriage' or abortion, I'd be interested in their names. So often we think that this is because these people are 'left-wing' or 'liberal' or 'progressive'. Let us not forget that many souls raised to the status of celebrity are under the influence not just of the Devil, but of his human agents upon the Earth who shape them and mold them to be servants of the Devil. He and his fallen angels are the enemy, not the human personnel who serve him, day and night and who are under the glamour of his power. The Lord loves all His children infinitely and longs to set captives free. He does not want His children to be slaves to any industry, but voluntary workers for Himself in His vineyard, the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.
Christus Vincit, Christus Regnat, Christus Imperat!
