Summit News!

A WORD FROM BRO. JOE,

Hey, Summit Family, this past Sunday I covered the 7TH COMMANDMENT, “You shall not commit ADULTERY.” As I was having lunch with some of our church family members AFTERWARDS, I was asked the question, “Is PORNOGRAPHY wrong?” Of course, MY ANSWER was a resounding “YES!” Then he said, “Well, WHY didn’t you MENTION IT?” I replied, “Frankly, because I didn’t NEED any ADDITIONAL, EXTRA MATERIAL!” If you were here Sunday, you KNOW that’s TRUE 🙂 I’m sorry I was so “LONG-WINDED”. Many of you COME OUT the back door on Sunday mornings, after our worship service, where I am USUALLY standing GREETING ATTENDEES as they leave. OFTEN, some of you will say, “Bro. Joe, DON’T APOLOGIZE for going OVERTIME. If The Spirit PROMPTS YOU to preach longer DO IT!” And, I APPRECIATE those comments, and I ALWAYS want to be “OPEN” to The Holy Spirit’s PROMPTING. But, I “DO” try to stay on SCHEDULE, because I realize what a PROBLEM “going over” can present to our NURSERY and CHILDREN’S workers, and OTHER VOLUNTEERS who are sacrificing, to ALLOW US our time, TOGETHER, in the Worship Center. I hope ALL OF YOU I’m referring to (our volunteers) KNOW how much this preacher APPRECIATES YOU, and thanks God, EVERY WEEK, for your SERVICE! I’m ALSO very thankful for your “PATIENCE” with me! I NEVER hear complaints, but I’m confident, AT TIMES, I make your job MORE DIFFICULT. I’m truly sorry. Please forgive me. I constantly STAND AMAZED at the WONDERFUL and HARMONIOUS congregation we are BLESSED with here at Summit! You’re ALL very “SPECIAL”, and I love serving here!

Now, BACK to my brother’s QUESTION about PORNOGRAPHY: Today, in 2019, I’m more and more REMINDED of THE WORDS recorded in Genesis 6:5. It says there, “Then The Lord SAW that the WICKEDNESS of man was GREAT in the earth, and that EVERY INTENT of the THOUGHTS of his HEART was only EVIL CONTINUALLY!” Remember, during the sermon Sunday, when I REMINDED you what JESUS says about “LUST” and “THE HEART”? In the DAYS of Noah, people’s IMAGINATIONS were FILLED to the BRIM with LURID THOUGHTS and VILE FANTASIES! This led to a SENSUALIZED culture that descended to such DEPTHS of DEPRAVITY that God WASHED it all AWAY in a GLOBAL FLOOD! The human HEART hasn’t CHANGED since the TIMES of Noah, but our “TECHNOLOGY” has advanced. Now we can TRANSFER our FOULEST FANTASIES to a billion SCREENS, accessible with a TOUCH of a FINGER. Every day, NEW television programs, movies, and videos SEEK the “SHOCK VALUE” of breaking OLD TABOOS and showing MORE GRAPHIC sex, torture, or violence than the HUMAN MIND can absorb.

Yes, there’s still SOME WHOLESOME programming available, but it’s HARDER TO FIND now. The DANGER of running into the WRONG STUFF is frighteningly EASY, especially for HOMES with small children.

To AVOID this TRAP, we should CAREFULLY CHOOSE our entertainment selections. The Bible says, “Get RID of all MORAL FILTH and the EVIL that is SO PREVALENT, and HUMBLY ACCEPT The Word PLANTED in you, WHICH can SAVE YOU!” (James 1:21, NIV) Remember, friend, EVERY CHOICE WE MAKE, including how we are “ENTERTAINED”, must be SUBMITTED to His Lordship!

I’ll be looking for you THIS LORD’S DAY at 10:00 AM for another GREAT MORNING of worship, fellowship, prayer, and hearing from God! Don’t miss it. Love always, Bro. Joe
