My latest sermon at Kaleo Church, The World: Media & Culture
C.J. Mahaney writes in the book Worldliness Resisting the Seduction of a Fallen World.
Today, the greatest challenge facing American evangelicals is not persecution from the world, but seduction by the world.
One of the dominant shapers of what we believe is the continuous seduction of the media. From the moment we wake up to the radio, to spending our day online and ending it in front of the TV, our affections are being shaped. In our world, 100Äôs of billions of dollars have been spent on media infrastructure. We are bombarded with thousands of ads daily. Can we honestly say that our affection is not being drawn to the world by the influence of media?
