Ok, I Am Angry

I can't help it. I have tried to ignore it. I can not!

This coverage of the circus surrounding Michael Jackson's death and memorial service makes me ill. Absolutely ill! I will not apologize for my rant or my convictions regarding this subject. So, if you think you will be offended, don't read this. You have been warned.

This man was SICK; mentally and spiritually. Has anyone seen some of the later interviews where he talks about sleeping with children. HELLO!!! This is not normal or moral.

He had an obsession with plastic surgery and skin bleaching. He spent money on ridiculous things that had no eternal value. Yes, there is perspective to this, but this was way out of bounds of reasonable.

He brought three children 'into the world' (God only knows how) for what could only be considered selfish reasons. They were victims of the wealth and media; part of a abnormal, sick world.

He produced music that did not glorify God and took people's minds to immoral places. His moves were obscene. This is how he spent his time and made his living.

Examine the motives, the heart. Of course, no one is perfect. But, we must look at the motives, the priorities, the influence, etc. Michael Jackson had a multitude of opportunities to profess Christ, be a Christian influence, glorify God... HE DID NOT! He glorified himself, the entertainment industry, worldly morals, popular culture. He lived for this life. A warped life.

There is NO gray area folks. NONE.

Col. 3:2

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

Phil. 4:8

For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things

1 Corn. 6:9

Do you not know that the unrighteous and the wrongdoers will not inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived (misled): neither the impure and immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor those who participate in homosexuality.

Ps. 51:15

O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise.

Prov. 12:8

A man is praised according to his wisdom, but men with warped minds are despised.

Where have you been for the last decade? This is not the first media hype over immorality. I totally agree with you! The sad thing is that Christians "help" keep this junk going by buying their music and keeping up with all the latest Hollywood gossip. We live in a sad time where good is called evil and evil is called good! Preach it Sista!

You have definitely hit on something here. I think what bothers me the absolute MOST (of many things, here) is the inordinate amount of time being spent measuring his assets versus his liabilities, you know, to see if he was broke (materially, that is). How UNIMPORTANT IS THAT?!?! What I feel certain of is this: He may or may not have been broke (financially) but he was surely BROKEN...(spiritually, morally, etc...) and that is ALL that matters. This situation confirms the Word of God on so many levels, not the least of which is this: if we DO NOT have Jesus Christ we have NOTHING because only HE can give the true abundant life!!!
