Transcript

  • 1. MEDIA, ENTERTAINMENT, PORNOGRAPHY PHIL. 4:4-9
  • 2.
    • Introduction:
      • The “tupai-tupai” ad. The impact of TV, esp. advertising.
    • The Impact of the modern media on our lives
    • TV -
      • The relationship between TV and violent behaviour
  • 3.
    • American Medical Association finding
    • American Psychiatric Association … “ exposure to media portrayals of violence increases aggressive behaviour in children.“
    • Television alone is responsible for 10% of youth violence. – Leonard Eron, Senior Research Scientist at the University of Michigan
  • 4.
    • TV mogul Ted Turner said: "They're guilty of murder.  We all are -- me too.“
    • Sex is often presented on TV: as a casual activity without risk or consequences.
    • HIV/AIDS cases in Malaysia – next to drugs (needle sharing), sex is the greatest cause.
    • 86% of Britons feel their government should step in to regulate sexually explicit television and magazine images aimed at children.
  • 5.
    • Violence and sex – the most attractive combination for attracting large audiences, have become almost the norm in most TV shows.
    • The result – as Walter Kaiser says, ‘The minds of the younger people are being manipulated so that they “conform” to the new morality and new ethic, instead of being “transformed” by God’s renewing of the mind (Rom. 12:1-2).’
  • 6.
    • New source of values? TV. Parents, the home, even church have been replaced.
    • Everything has become relative. Situational ethics is in vogue. There is no right and wrong. What this has produced is a very high tolerance to SIN, even in the Church.
  • 7.
    • MUSIC
    • Is Lady Gaga a representative of the modern music scene?
    • One look at her lyrics. Not much left to the imagination.
    • - An earlier research
    • “ Rock music has one appeal only, a barbaric appeal, to sexual desire—not love, not eros, but sexual desire undeveloped and untutored. Young people know that rock has the beat of sexual intercourse” - Allan Bloom
  • 8.
    • Music has captured the minds and hearts and souls of young people today.
    • ‘ Artists black and white, male and female — all equally guilty of audio “porn.” ’
  • 9.
    • The News Media
    • Case in point – The international news media’s reporting and the Malaysian newspapers’ reporting of the July 16th. Birsih march.
    • Law minister Muhammed Nazri Aziz said national security takes "definite" precedence over the right of publication and vowed to combat the "intrusion of digital" news.
    • The draconian Printing Presses and Publication Act (PPPA)
  • 10.
    • Pornography - The easy availability of such material on the internet, DVD’s, printed material, etc.
  • 11.
    • Our Response
    • The Late Dr. John Stott – The Sermon on the Mount – “the new counter culture.”
    • Romans 12:1-2
    • 12:1 (a) “Therefore…”
    • (b) “by the mercies of God…” see 11:30-32.
    • (c) “living sacrifice”
    • 12:2 (a) “Do not be conformed to this world”
  • 12.
    • “… be transformed by the renewing of your mind…”
    • “… may prove what is the will of God…”
    • “… what is good, acceptable and perfect…”
  • 13.
    • Conclusion
