is a must.
If God's word says something, we must obey it. Actually there is just no way
of getting around it.
| A very important test that we can
take to see if we truly love God is to ask ourself; do we obey
example, God's word tells us not to lie or steal. This means just
what it says . Do
not lie or steal! God
put these commandments (rules) in His word because He knows what
is best for us and He wants our joy to be full.
in which God wants our obedience is to avoid or have nothing to do with the unfruitful works of darkness.
This also means what it says. Have nothing to do with anything
that Satan is behind, no matter what form it is in.
forms of this subtle darkness may be in the entertainment that
we like. Satan is behind a majority of popular movies, music,
games, and books, etc. (We will be covering many of these things
as we precede through this book).
of the reasons it is important that we do not stay attached to
these things is because it desensitizes us. This means that what
we used to think was bad, we no longer think is bad. We have
gotten used to the twisted lies and occult themes that many media
productions have introduced through the years.
