Toyin, the mastermind of the group asked this question "Do we think it's possible that the world is intentionally designed to make sin/evil/folly more 'automatic' and cultural than moral nowadays"
|Musing me!! haha, had to add this picture for some musing effect :) My friend Kunle took this shot when he was getting a hang at playing with the camera. He plays with more pictures here...|
Don't know if I've gone off point, but anyways, a few days ago, i was talking to my sister about Hollywood and homosexuality and all. (I still stand that i can't judge them and hate them for who they are if i can love my friend for something as 'little' as lying. Sin is sin) I love 'modern family' and I've noticed most series that capture a large following have a gay couple in there for good measure... greys anatomy, desperate houswives etc. Hollywood has somehow become the dictator of the cultural norm,(an episode of west wing has a scene where president Bartlet attended a fundraising dinner for his campaign by a top shot gay Hollywood producer who threatened to take away his support from the president if he didn't come out supporting them) they take away the shock value from our reality. Because we've seen it in the movies looking so normal and so real, then it's okay. That's what the children of this generation will grow up to... movies that tell them whats the norm, while parents struggle with impacting Christian morals that seem stupid and senseless.(Someone in the group gave the Hollywood respond as well, I guess there's an awakening to our consciousness to things we take for granted)
In conclusion, the response from Oti sums it all up " I feel like we are literally living in the "Matrix".The only people who can see the world for what it is are the people who have been "unplugged" I.E "Born Again" Everyone else has their eyes blinded by the god of this world 2 Cor 4 vs 4 Ask for wisdom, ask for discernment. Test all things. Don't accept anything on face value. Rely on the Word of God, that your mind may continuously be truly enlightened."
What's your take?
