    The new Taco Bell commercial with the kid running out of some girl's house. "Let's say her parents came home early. Take the nachos and run."

    The Kasey Kahne All-State commercials.

    Many, many commercials and T.V. shows follow this pattern. How can you prevent your kids from being exposed? Get rid of the T.V.'s?

    Scriptures says to set no "unclean thing" before your eyes. Do you think Christians should get rid of their televisions?

    No. Please Christians go ahead and keep your tvs because it is much more important that we be entertained than we be holy. That's me being facetious. :laugh:

    My list, which will be ongoing, is just to show how we complain about the homosexual agenda being pushed but how overwhelmingly we've normalized heterosexual lust and fornication into our everyday existence because we aren't willing to get rid of our tvs or turn them off because we accept the heterosexual sin. Our at least our actions tend to say that we do.

    No Zaac..., that's you being honest!!! :thumbsup: ...and good for you!!!

    TV will never go away and one would probably be locked up should their kids go to school telling a teacher they were NOT allowed said device in the home. American's are addicted to home entertainment and it makes for the perfect baby sitter.

    The "Walton's" come to mind. I wasn't in that generation but had relatives that carried that family attitude up and until they died. I have such fond memories...

    Lust of the eyes is not a new phenomenon. Adam and Eve contracted a fatal case of lust when they disobeyed God. All of their progeny has it--along with lust of flesh and pride of life. Lust is a major factor of the totality of our depravity. Being born again increases the spiritual warfare. We realize how sinful we really are. But we have The Advocate, Jesus Christ, The Righteous.

    Cyberspace skin shows are a modern example of the immorality which has been working in this country since at least WWII, maybe roaring twenties. War has a way of increasing fornication and adultery. There are many more opportunities for sinning. I recall seeing movies like: "Splendor in the Grass" when I was a young teenager. Hugh Hefner got started about this time too. Pornography is not a new issue--it goes to around the time of the ancient Greeks, perhaps further back in time.

    The problem with the moral code, or the lack thereof, lies in the fact that sin is allowable if one is over 21. Also, we have redefined what sin might be: abortion is not murder, but freedom of choice; homosexuality is not abomination, but alternate lifestyle.

    We are living on the edges of Sodom and Gomorrah. "Remember Lot's wife."

    Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

    Perhaps in another thread if you'd like to start it? This one is still about how heterosexual lust and fornication have been normalized into tv far more than you'll ever see homosexual anything.

    Both are equally wrong but we go about the status quo with one while complaining heavily about the other.

    The reason for that is one is actively trying to include us in their sin and forcing us to not only condone it, but approve and endorse it. Nobody who is fornicating is trying to politicize it.

    But you brought "holiness" into it, so it's a fair challenge.

    What were the kids actually doing? The commercial never says. Were they fornicating and eating taco bell at the same time? We have some parents in my church that would have the same reaction if they came home and found a boy in their home doing nothing but sitting on the couch. There's nothing implied here. It's left up to the viewer's imagination. Someone is thinking the worst.

    Webdog--you got it so right!

    But to answer Zaac--who says Christians are not trying to do away with heterosexual fornication and lust on tv? I know many Christian families that shun tv altogether, and some that have it but connect only to a dvd player and select only high quality shows, sans the commercials.

    But I've never seen, to be honest, any person openly engaging in adultery or fornication ask a local church to hold a ceremony to bless that, as the gays have one church in our town. Never saw, for that matter, an addict or alcoholic bring their booze or dope to church to get blessed for their relationship with it, either.

    Now I do agree some come asking to be blessed for a second marriage without scriptural grounds for divorce from the first marriage are asking for adultery to be blessed. But hopefully very few churches would do so.

    Never saw a couple that was just shacking up come and ask for a church ceremony for it, either.

    So let us be perfectly honest: Christians are NOT all that focused on homosexuality. The gays and lesbians are bringing this fight into the church THEMSELVES, then get all offended when someone tells them NO.

    Umm they already have. That's why the envelope is pushed more and more. They've already done with heterosexual fornication and lust the same thing folks complain about the homosexuals now trying to do.

    That's why it's in everything OPENLY, and on everything OPENLY.

    You're obviously thinking the worst because that's not why I listed the Taco Bell commercial.

    Pushing a moral envelope is not trying to politicize it and get everyone to participate. As GiB said, the Taco Bell commercial didn't insinuate what you stated, that is how you interpreted it.

    since you brought it up, the challenge is fair. Your refusal to answer it is kinda funny.
