I have always wanted to do a talk show like The View, but from a Christian point of View. My girlfriend and I did a couple mock talkshows for our ladies ministry called, “The Way We See It” and had a blast. We even invited guests like “Mertha Stewart” and “Super Ninny” (aka Super Nanny).
You seemed to really enjoy the Victoria Beckham post, so, I’m thinking that I am going to start doing Hot Topics on Praise and Coffee. I think that we all have a lot to say about things and we need a good outlet to get our point of VIEW out don’t you think??? Maybe some producer will pick this up and I’ll be calling you to be guests on the show! : P
Today’s topics: Hollywood’s Young Starlets You can’t turn on a news channel without hearing about the young Starlets gone astray these days. Lindsay, Brittany, Paris….the list goes on. My heart breaks for these young girls, they are so lost and in need of a Savior.
Eph 4:17-19 18 They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts. 19 Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more. NIV
This is a good description of where they are now, but how did they get there? We don’t really know the whole story in their lives, but they’re real drama is that they don’t have a personal, intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Lord would fill every hurt and need that they have. He would show them healthy boundaries and give them hope for tomorrow.
I am so sad for these young girls who are struggling to find out who they are and what their purpose is. They obviously haven’t found the love of God, so they flounder in front of the world and the world is not kind to them in the process.
Luke 19:10 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.” NIV
I think the word LOST best describes the state that these kids are in.
So, we should pray for them. Yes. However, I don’t believe that means that we also stand idly by and let them dictate the culture to our children. We talk to our kids about it. We teach them what God’s Word says. We help our daughters/sons avoid these pitfalls by teaching them that they are created by God for a purpose.
To know Him and make Him known. I just love Him and His love has so radically changed my life, that I want these hurting people to know that love too! Dont’ you?!
