Falling Darkness: Glorification of Evil, Child Violence in Last Days

A-country-underr=siege        Floods of darkness now fall over American society.  Consider the programs on television featuring police chasing violent murderers, or increasing paranormal depictions of monsters, other evil beings, and realms of death.  Also appraise the increasing number of “accidental” gun murders carried out by children.

As David Bauder writes in ‘TV Violence Still Prevalent, According To New PTC Study:’ “Violence, gore and gunplay were staples on prime-time television even in the most sensitive period directly following the Newtown school shooting.

“A study of 392 prime-time scripted programs on broadcast networks shown during the month following Vice President Joe Biden’s January meeting with entertainment industry executives on the topic revealed that 193 had some incident of violence, according to the Parents Television Council. Some are cartoonish––quite literally, with Homer strangling Bart for mouthing off on ‘The Simpsons’––but there is plenty of gunplay, stabbings and beat-downs.”

AMC producers defend the program, ‘The WalkingDead,’ which is popular among young voters.  And when justifying the violent gore in ‘The Following,‘Fox entertainment chief, Kevin Reilly, says nightmarish scenes are part of the entertainment menu  broadcasters must provide viewers. Who made that ‘rule’?

The American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry avers hundreds of studies show that TV violence affects children and teens as they may:  1) “Become immune or numb to the horror ov violence; 2) Gradually accept violence as a way to solve problems; 3) Imitate the violence they observe on television; 4) Identify with certain characters, victims and/or victimizers.”

Maybe this explains why in the last few years, the U.S. has witnessed scores of murders by children who found guns children-gun-accidents‘carelessly’ left available by adults.  Just this month in Arizona a father visited a friend with his four-year old son.  That friend somehow left a gun available, and the boy picked it up and killed his father.
Perhaps the child had seen enough TV to know how to shoot a gun.  The stories are endless.  In May a three-year-old in Florida shot himself with a gun found in the bedroom he shared with his uncle, etc.

These are indicators of gross spiritual darkness over this nation. The forces of sex, semi-nudity, and crazed ‘always adolescent’adults seen on TV and movie screens, as well as the growing prevalence of legalized casino gambling are others.

This nation reflects its part in deceptions in these last days.  As Isaiah 60 says in historical books of the Old Testament: “For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but The LORD shall arise upon thee, and His glory shall be seen upon thee (verse 2).”

Part of that verse prophecies the state of nations on earth today:  rebellion, revolutions, wars, sexual deviance and degredation. The second part is for those faithful few who believe so strongly in God and His Word that they walk in His Light and in the blood of His Son.  The question is how many of those are left?
