As you may know or may not know I am not a fan of television. I tolerate it because I don’t want to my children or family to be totally unprepared for the worldliness of society. Plus, I can explain what is good or bad and help them formulate a correct biblical worldview to what they are seeing on the television. I writing this article for the reason of not to tell everyone to go get rid of their TV’s, but more over to say that this issues that clearly falls under Romans 14 meaning for you to do as you may as God convicts you to do.
The other day I was watching the Disney channel with my younger son and we came across a new movie coming out in a few weeks called Avalon High. The context of the movie has to do with a girl who has recently moved into town and has started attending Avalon High. Which at first, I was okay with nothing really to out there, until they start talking about reincarnation, and other supernatural events that are to happen at this school in regard to King Arthur returning and setting up a modern day Camelot. At this point I was like wait a minute. They actually stated reincarnation in the preview as the means of which King Arthur was coming back. As I watched more of the preview, which was about three minutes long, I was amazed at the number of references to supernatural events and methods taking place in this movie. They even loosely reference witch craft or sorcery magic. We know as bible believing God fearing Christians that the bible speaks directly against such things. So the question is now what to do with what I just saw? This movie is defiantly full of non-biblical approaches to the after life, witch craft and other key biblical areas. As I watched the preview it really reminded me of a take off of the Chronicles of Narnia, but with a twist only satan could bring using humor to it to entice the weak of faith or nonbelievers.
All this however was not a really big shocker to me. Anyone who knows anything about the Disney channel knows that for years they have been lacing their programs with ecumenism, witch craft, and social justice programming. There are too many shows to list all of them here but to name a just few shows that promote these agendas are Wizards of Waverly Place and now this latest movie along with promoting such movies as Harry Potter and like movies which is all about sorcery and supernatural events. Then there is the social justice show Hannon Montana which is teaching children to lie too others and hide behind a fake imagine as long the means justify the ends and you are happy. Than there is Icarly which promotes total disrespect to adult supervision and make the parents out to be idiots. Disney is full of these shows that promote their agenda to take our kids from a biblical worldview to a worldview of self oneness.
The bible clearly warnings us again and again about falling into such worldly traps we must be on guard for such attacks. We are to be renewing our mind in the things of the Bible and Christ not the things of this world. I am not saying never watch the Disney channel or let your children watch TV, I am saying watcher beware let the word of God guide you. We just all need to take heed to what the world is trying to push upon our children even on the Disney channel in a humorous non harming way. I know personally in my house hold we will not be watching Avalon High and be limiting even more of the Disney channel from our already limited TV viewing time.
