TV Shows Featuring Nudity Highlight Culture's Crisis of Truth

Prophecy Sign:  Increasing godlessness and depravity

Our Western society is descending into pagan depths of depravity.  Paul was familiar with the depths of depravity a society could find itself wallowing in, as both the Roman and Greek societies of his day were deep into sexual perversion.  However Rome and Greece never had the internet or cable television which is rife with depravity that likely would have even made the Romans and Greeks blush with modesty.

As has been said many times before;  'If God doesn't soon judge our western societies, he will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah"

Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles. Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. Romans 1:22-23 NIV

TV Shows Featuring Nudity Highlight Culture's Crisis of Truth
A tawdry and titillating TV trend is under way. Seven—that's right, seven—shows are being rolled out on cable and satellite channels featuring one central theme: complete nudity. 
Romans 1:21-32, written to an enlightened civilization that completely destroyed itself, lays out a pattern repeated throughout history that has become America's story:
• Reject truth
• Lose discernment
• Experience moral chaos

Here's the deal: the crisis in our culture is a crisis of truth. Unless we categorically and decisively reject the secularist, moral relativism of 21st-century America, we are doomed. This is not a scare tactic; this is sober reality. Our hope is that God in His mercy would send a spiritual awakening reversing this trend before it's too late.

New Show Stars Cussing, Pot-Smoking Jesus
After this year's spate of successful faith-based films, like "Son of God," "Heaven is for Real," "Noah," and "God's Not Dead," it appears Hollywood is ready to cash in on religiously-themed entertainment. But the latest incarnation of the story of Jesus has Christians outraged and calling for its cancellation before it debuts next week on Aug 7. The TV series, titled "Black Jesus," is slated to premiere on the Cartoon Network's late night lineup on Adult Swim. While its creators promote "Black Jesus" as a comedy, critics complain there's nothing funny about the upcoming live-action show. They say it's crude, offensive, and sacrilegious. Adult Swim released a trailer last week showing an anachronistic Jesus who lives in present-day Compton, California. In the video, he commits uncharacteristically unsanctimonious acts, like smoking pot, using profanity, and often getting caught in the crossfire of gun violence or verbal abuse. The perplexing portrayal of Jesus has some Christians and conservatives demanding a boycott of the network and its advertisers.
