This generation has been called the sight and sound generation. The increased technologies of television, computers, game consoles, digital cameras, camcorders and visual media have brought us into this era. I was born April 5, 1954 and I am presently sixty three years old. We did not have all the electronic gadgets when I was growing up that my son, Randall, is growing up with. This technology has brought the world many conveniences, but it is also becoming our own demise.
Technology, used improperly, can rapidly increase evil in the world. Satan uses this tool to promote his evil instantly around the earth. Demons follow this sight and sound around the world. Demon possessed human predators use the internet and other movie media to prey on unsuspecting children, women and men. Many children are abducted daily from what they believe is an innocent chat on the internet. The predator tells them they are friends and they would like to meet them and when the young person arrives it is not a friend, but a demon possessed person that wants to abuse and kill them. I have seen young boys and girls be allowed to place explicit video about themselves on the internet where these human predators hang out and look for someone to abuse. We do not allow our son to place anything on the internet like that and we monitor all his E-mail and website activity daily. I was in prison with a lot of these demon possessed human predators and know what they are capable of. I encourage you to know what your children do. Young children and teenagers, even though they are in a good family and are taught correctly, are easily impressed and influenced at those ages. I know, because it happened to me! This society presses children to grow up too fast and become part of the popular “in crowd”.
The church also benefits from this equipment to instantly spread the gospel around the world in seconds, and record church services. We must be wise as serpents and harmless as doves as we move forward in this arena. I foresee problems coming on the church in this area. The sight and sound generation is being taught to be spectators instead of participators. I predict, at the present rate of technology used by the church, that people will not leave their home to go to church in the next twenty years; unless there is a major move of God in the earth that will bring the saints together.
Young people are being raised in a “throw it away” society. If you don’t want it, throw it away. That is why millions of babies have been murdered in the United States under the banner of “legal abortion.” The next thing to be thrown away is a belief in our Creator God and our Lord Jesus Christ.
