I am amazed about the media coverage preceding the election here in the US. Every single one of the media giants has a spin. CNN, FOX, ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, ... just pick one. Any one. It used to be that news reporters simply reported the facts and if was up to you to decide if something was a good thing or a bad thing. It didn't need to be explained into some behavioral analysis. We didn't have panels of commentators telling why this thing was good or bad or how we should perceive it. People have gotten so used to someone telling them how to think (brain-washing?) and this isn't always obvious thing. Usually it's the subtle things that say more than the obvious things. We just gotten so used to hearing these things over and over again until it seeps into us. It becomes a part of our thinking. It's much the same with some churches and society today. What used to be known to everyone as a "good" thing, or a "bad" thing has been spun into "everything is good". Some preachers are not much more than spin doctors. We look at the Bible and we see certain things are obviously things God doesn't like. (abortion, homosexuality) which are this years agenda... things like fornication and alcohol were last years agenda.... fornication is so prevalent in our society... on on TV, on the radio, in the movies, in magazines, even in comic books. It's just become "the normal thing people do".. "everyone does". And some churches say "it's OK if people in the church do it... God forgives". Yet other churches say... "There really isn't anything wrong with it anymore". Jesus doesn't judge those who are in His church. (which isn't scriptural, but... ) It's getting more and more that way with the new agenda... abortion and homosexuality aren't really as bad as they "used to be" or "how they used to be perceived". All it takes is a little spin doctoring from the right preachers and anything is possible.
