Really, people? Really?
I wonder do christians sit at home watching this show thinking what an awesome avenue it is for god to get his word out through contestants on a reality t.v. show? Or are many christians more like me gagging on their food with the amount of nonsense oozing from these game show contestants?
My guess is that many christians are on both sides of this. I know christians who have prayed for everything from where to place the furniture in their house and they praise god when they figure out where the couch looks best. This type of christian probably praises shows like Survivor. And I know christians who don’t believe god cares to participate in the little daily activities of our lives. He could care less if my couch looks good on this wall or that one. Much like me they probably choke on a few kernels of popcorn during these episodes.
But my question is this: God, when are you going to stop playing reality t.v. game shows and start…
Saving the children in the Horn of Africa?
Or Control Natural Disasters that Kill Hundreds of Thousands?
A God who spent some energy on handling a few of these issues is one that might get my attention. A god who continues to care about who wins a million dollars on a stupid game show will continue to get my scorn and disbelief.
