FOR THE NEXT 30 MINUTES, YOU WILL BE ON
This is David Bay, Director of Old Paths Ministries.
And this is the Cutting Edge, a radio program dedicated to warning and informing God's people. We are committed to the study and exposition of the inerrant, inspired and authoritative Word of God. The views expressed belong to us, and are not necessarily shared by this station.
Our society is deteriorating, and Bible-believing Christians are ill-prepared to face that deterioration. This radio program is dedicated to preparing God's people to meet the challenges of the Day, and to encourage obedience to the Word of God in being separated from worldliness and false doctrine.
The moral bankruptcy of our society is well-documented.
Few people understand why we have become morally bankrupt. However, when we look at society through the eyes of God, through the Bible, we can easily see why we are facing the unprecedented troubles today. This study of America through the eyes of God is what we will always do try to here; stay with us for some eye-opening truths.
Several weeks ago, we shared with you the insidiously evil and effective method by which people's attitudes, especially those attitudes which are deeply held, can be changed. The method by people's attitudes are being changed is called the Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan. This change can be effected on a population-wide basis utilizing our mass media: radio, T.V., movies, magazines, newspapers. On our first program on this subject, we defined the process and showed examples of its use. These examples were:
Today, we will be discussing more ways in which this Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan is being utilized in TV, Movies, and Videos. Let us begin with Jesus' prophecy in Matthew 24:12, "But the love of the great body of people will grow cold, because of the multiplied lawlessness and iniquity." Since Jesus' time frame in Matthew 24 is End Times, we know He is speaking to our time. What Jesus is saying is that the normal sins with which every age has struggled will be so multiplied that the normal love for Jesus Christ will grow cold. Only in these times, with the advent of Mass Media, have we achieved such multiplication of sin.
Not only has this multiplication caused many people's hearts to grow cold toward Jesus, the planners of the New World Order are deliberately using this Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan to prepare people's hearts and minds for the appearance of Anti-Christ. This preparation shall be the focus of our study today.
The Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan works like this:
This process is all the more insidious because the change in attitude occurs in the subconscious; thus, many persons are not even aware their attitudes have been changed.
Remember, the key to success is sheer repetition, which wears down people's attitudes against the issue. Even if an advocate of the subject under discussion is out-debated by an opponent, the cause of the New Age is advanced, because sheer repetition has been achieved. Thus, TV, newspapers, and magazines are free to produce documentaries that seem to support the Christian viewpoint on a particular controversial issue. The best example of this phenomenon is abortion. Most people would agree that most individuals in Mass Media support abortion; yet, articles against it are constantly being printed or aired. Why? Because every article or program about the issue, whether Pro or Con, provides the sheer repetition necessary to wear down people's opposition. Thus, Christian organizations fighting abortion are actually contributing to the success of the Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan in moving the attitude of the American public to acceptance. How insidious!!
TV, Movies, and Videos provide the greatest potential to condition people to accept an attitudinal change for several reasons:
TV, Movies, and Videos are changing our attitudes in several key areas: (Quotes below are taken from the Christian book, "Horror and Violence: The Deadly Duo In The Media", by Phil Phillips).
1. Acceptance of Heterosexual Adultery as normal
"In soap operas, 98% of all sexual scenes represent fornication. Nothing is off limits -- euthanasia, homosexuality, abortion, drugs, child abuse, alcohol, rape and murder." We have touched upon this sin in our previous programs, so we will not elaborate here.
2. TV programs are eroding our normal compassion, as many people are being terribly desensitized.
NEWS BRIEF: "The USA is at war. The enemy is within. Last year, 23,440 [people] were terminated...if the flow of blood isn't staunched, 250,000 lives could be lost this decade... This nation is in a fight for its life." (USA Today, 8-5-91)
Remember Jesus' words in Matthew 24:12, "The love of the many will grow cold because of the multiplied iniquity." Consider the scope of the problem in America today:
* Children are watching violence at a rate like NO OTHER
GENERATION IN HISTORY.
These shocking statistics show why America is today fighting such a battle against sexual crime, but it is also frighten-ing to realize that your sons and daughters will be choosing their dating companions and spouses from a pool of indivi-duals who believe this nonsense.
* Both children and adults have difficulty distinguishing between reality and illusion after continued, long-term exposure to TV and movies. "We have silently passed an amendment to the sixth (Biblical) Commandment: Thou shalt not kill, but it is perfectly all right for you to enjoy watching other people do it."
What are some of the observable results, as we can read in our news from people filling their minds with this violence?
Remember God's warning, "Be not deceived; God will not allow Himself to be mocked. For whatever a man sows, that is what He will reap."(Galatians 6:7). But, God has an even greater warning for those nations or individuals who would disregard this stern warning. In Hosea 8:7, God warns, "For they sow the wind and they shall reap the whirlwind." In other words, God will reward deliberate sin with punish-ment far out of proportion to the sin. And the Apostle Paul reveals in Romans 1:21-27, that God's judgment begins in the
body of those individuals who are guilty of blatant sin. We know from our previous study of God's Perfections that, when a nation's leaders refuse to punish wrong-doers according to God's commandments, then in his time, God will punish the nation according to His commandments. Thus, we should not be surprised to see the American national body afflicted with almost 40 Sexually Transmitted Diseases, including AIDS. We should not be surprised that violence, murder, and rape are today at all-time high levels. God's judgment of America has begun; it has started within her national body.
4. Abnormal relationships are so constantly being portrayed that many people do not know what is normal especially with the simultaneous family break-down
* Sexual Violence is very popular in music and movies.
Definition of Sexual Violence: The false message that women enjoy violence and pain during sex and that they are less than equal to men in societal value. Terror and slasher films typically depict sexual relationship in this kind of situation. In our seminar, we show examples of the horribly-depraved situations which are depicted in these types of videos.These movies are all available at video stores to any young child. Children are being terribly affected by watching this carnage.
Some of the videos of this type have recently been including a short segment at the end which teaches re-incarnation. This reveals the hidden agenda of the New Age/Movie industry: Condition substantial part of population to accept the New Age Christ and the genocide which is planned to follow. (Constance Cumbey, "Hidden Dangers Of The Rainbow").
We need to briefly talk about this conditioning. Before we go any further, we need to ask you to put on your spiritual discerning glasses.
5. Man's unique view of his place in the Universe as a creature created and saved by Jesus Christ is being changed. The active agent of change is the great emphasis on the theme of Aliens on TV and in movies.
Consider the great number of movies and TV programs which feature aliens:
This list is just representative of the many others which have appeared and are currently appearing. The theme of these shows is fairly consistent. Aliens are depicted as: * Just like us in many respects
"...In 1982, Michael London of the L.A. Times gathered
together a group of 8 people experienced in UFO and extraterrestrial encounters for a special screening of Steven Spielberg's movie "E.T." London noted the following reactions of the group to the movie:
`This is a true movie, not a romance. It's part of a CONDITIONING PROCESS TO PREPARE US FOR THE ARRIVAL OF ALIEN BEINGS.' `The movie is a vehicle...It invites the audience to be less afraid of the so-called para-normal. And what better place to start than with the children?'...Everything is being done through the children..."
Everything is being done through our children, and has been for over 20 years. Thus, the first generation to be so conditioned are now having children, who are also being con-ditioned. What is the purpose? Remember that the Movie and TV industry are openly hostile to Christianity and are very obviously New Age. Also remember that the #1 objective of the New Age is to successfully stage the appearance of Anti-Christ.
WHEN THE ANTI-CHRIST STAGES HIS APPEARANCE, HE WILL CLAIM TO BE AN ASCENDED MASTER FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION, I.E., AN ALIEN BEING. HE IS JUST AS FRIENDLY AS THOSE ALIENS YOU HAVE BEEN SEEING ON TV AND MOVIES. HE JUST HAS OUR BEST INTERESTS AT HEART AND WANTS TO LEAD THE WORLD INTO A NEW, PEACEFUL EXISTENCE.
New Age leaders believe people will be much more inclined to accept the claims of Anti-Christ if they have been first conditioned to believe in the existence of friendly alien beings.
Since this unbelievable alien conditioning is occurring on TV and movies, what about the tremendous attention given to UFO's over the past 60 years? Certainly, the repeated media attention of UFO's fit the requirements of the Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan perfectly. Do UFO's actually exist, or are they just the product of over-active imagina-tions and supermarket tabloids?
Remember two Biblical admonitions:
Let us examine the fruits of the UFO's by examining the accounts of those people which have been contacted by them. An excellent source is a French Scientist, Jacques Vallee, in his book, "Messengers Of Deception: UFO Contacts and Cults". Mr. Vallee is a world-renowed scientist. He brings a scientist's empirical thinking to this study.
Let us first examine the subjects which UFO's are teaching the people with whom they have contacted, which we will call "Contactees".
All these practices are classic occultism!
Now, let us examine the stated goals of UFO's and do so in a way in which they are compared to the printed goals of the New Age Movement seeking to establish the New World Order.
1. NWO: Abolish all established Government
UFO: Abolish democracy in favor of utopian dictatorship (p. 103, 113).
2. NWO: All religion must be abolished.
UFO: All religion must be abolished. (p. 93).
3. NWO: Establish One-World Government; Communism envisions ultimate benevolent dictatorship operating in a Utopian environment where government will no longer be necessary.
UFO: Establish a single world government, a Utopian Benevolent Dictatorship. (p. 113)
4. NWO: All world's religions are equal and will one day be combined into one.
UFO: All world's religions are equal. (p. 121)
Thus, the goals of UFO's match very well the goals of the New World Order. Further, UFO Aliens are teaching their contactees concepts which, if carried out, would fulfill last days' Biblical prophecy:
Remember the Apostle Paul's prophetic warning in 2 Cor 11:14, "...Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light." To condition people to believe in the concepts of the New World Order, Satan has caused his demons to physically manifest themselves as UFO's, complete with highly technological machines. Do not underestimate Satan; he is the Lord of this world.
However, we believe the world has seen nothing yet. Consider again Biblical teaching about Anti-Christ's king-dom.
* Revelation 13:13, He performs great signs (startling miracles), even making fire fall from the sky to the earth in men's sight. And because of the miracles which he is allowed to perform...he deceives those who inhabit the earth commanding them to erect a statue in the likeness of the beast..."
These Super-Natural or seemingly Super-Natural miracles will lead men directly to the worship of Anti-Christ. The final piece to this shocking puzzle is found in Cooper's book, "Behold A Pale Horse", p. 27, "...Secret Societies were planning as far back as 1917 to invent an artificial threat from outer space in order to bring humanity together in a one-world government which they call the New World Order."
The shocking reality is that Satan has been manipulating world events to achieve his One-World Government, Economy, and Religion through Secret Societies, Communism, the New Age, and UFO's. The final merger into the New World Order is almost complete. UFO Aliens and Space ships are nothing more than demons which the Holy Spirit has allowed in this final age to physically manifest themselves in our realm. As the Apostle Paul prophesied, in 2 Thessalonians 2:7, "...the mystery of lawlessness is... restrained only until He who restrains is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one (the anti-christ) will be revealed..." If the Holy Spirit began to withdraw His restraining power against nations in the beginning of this century, Satan could begin to intervene in human history as never before. We believe this is precisely the case.
Do not be deceived. As Cooper stated, in his book, "Behold A Pale Horse", p. 177, "[New World Order Planners] have plans to bring about things like earthquakes, war, the Messiah, an extra-terrestrial landing, and economic collapse. They might bring about all of these things just to make sure it does work...The Illuminati has all the bases covered..."
And the Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan is the vehicle of necessary prior conditioning.
Now that you know how you and your family are being conditioned through TV and movies for the kingdom of Anti-Christ, what should be your response?
In this personal decision, we should allow God the last word: 2 Cor 6:17, "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty."
