American Idol

Last night, May 25, 2011, on TV, “American Idol” played its season finale.  Wow, oh my gosh, oh gee!  Could we hear a measure from the “ Hallelujah Chorus!”  We have a brand new “American Idol”!

Do you think God is all excited?

The people who keep slopping at the Kool-Aid trough think this is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Well, the ones who spent their money on long distance phone calls to vote for their “American Idol”, are not for the most part old enough to know there wasn’t a time when we didn’t have sliced bread.  The porn king of bunnies, Hugh Hefner, was born four years before there was sliced bread, but the dumbed-down, typical air-head that watches “American Idol” thinks that not only have we just elected a new “American Idol,” who is the top of the tops, they think that Hugh Hefner is the grantor the First Amendment (for the air-heads, that’s Free Speech, kiddies).

But all of this, American Idol, porn, and most of the nonsense on TV today is worthless.  It has no redeeming qualities!

Jesus Christ is the redeemer.  He alone can save you from the eternal flames of hell.

The Ten Commandments, now banned in public government sewage systems (that’s the public government school you attended) are what should be honored in your living room, your family room, your bedroom, your kitchen, you know all those places where you have multiple TV sets.

If you had the Ten Commandments displayed you’d know that the first two are very explicit concerning idols.

All ten of the Commandments are stated clearly in Exodus 20:2–17 and repeated in Deuteronomy 5:6–21, but for this post, I will focus on the first two, the two about idols.  The words of God about idols are located in the first six verses of the King James Version of the Holy Bible!  You might want to read it sometime.  There is likely one located somewhere in your house.  Most people have one somewhere, they just don’t bother to read or study it.

And now hear and listen to the powerful and truthful Word of God, but you’ll first need to know that an other god, a graven image, or any likeness of any thing is an idol.

Moses holding up the Stone Tablets Upon Which God Inscribed the Ten Commandments. (Rembrandt)

“And God spake all these words, saying, I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.”

So how does God’s Word measure up to the worthless TV “American Idol” from last night’s worthless TV “American Idol” program?

Do you think God is as excited about the newest “American Idol” as you are?

My wife and I stopped watching American Idol several seasons ago when the gay kid lost to the liberal masquerading as a conservative Christian. We always got sucked in by the auditions. There is nothing more amusing than listening to someone who thinks they can sing get told that in fact they are dreadful. Simon Cowell always had the nerve to say what the rest of us are thinking but are to polite to say.

That said, AI generally speaking peddles junk. What’s worse is that many Christians have this odd idea that it’s in fact a Christian show because a handful of church people happen to be part of it every year. I never fell for such allusions, it’s a secular show with secular music. Perhaps it’s easier for me as I object to most “Christian” music because it has almost nothing to do with the Christian faith. Either way, anyone who thinks AI is anything but a peddler of secular nonsense is deceiving themselves.
