The Devil and The Media

This blog is about an experience I had when I went to see a movie in the theaters.

A few weeks ago I had the chance to go out to see a movie with my husband for his birthday. We went to see Inception. We walked inside the theater sat down and got comfortable as the movie previews started rolling. One of the movie trailers that came on sent a shock through me. I felt this uneasy feeling that made me want to look away. It was a trailer for the movie "The Devil." I saw bits and pieces of it and what I saw horrified me. The images were so disturbing that I could not get them out of my mind. As I came home that night after the movie and went to bed, I had a hard time sleeping. In fact I woke up that night terrified.  I could not believe the impact that 5-minute trailer had upon my mind and my spirit. I don't know how anyone could stand to stay and watch the whole movie. Those scenes were playing over and over in my head like a broken record until I began to pray for my mind to be at peace. 

After I had this experience I thought, "why do we have so many movies that depict the devil and show his power and dominion, but rarely do we see movies that depict God in his true form in all his power and glory?" God has more power than Satan. He made Satan. He has power over him. I wish the media would portray God as our loving Father in Heaven, who is nothing like Bruce Almighty (which was a blasphemy in my opinion, I didn't even finish watching it).  I know that the media has so much influence on people.  Sometimes I just wish it would influence people for good rather than for evil.
Sometimes I feel like giving Satan a peace of my mind!  But I know he would only be happy to see me angry, so I keep my mouth shut. I know that Satan thrives off anger. 

I am so grateful for God and his Son Jesus Christ who can "rescue us from the GRASP of this AWFUL MONSTER THE DEVIL."  I am so thankful for the gospel and for all the good that it is in this world. The world is black and white and we must choose our side.
