Episode Theme: Our music and our videos.
1. Colossians 2:8 warns us about being fooled by human arguments. How can you tell if what someone is teaching you is from Christ? (Hint: Look in the same place that the warning is found.)
2. The apostle Paul had several friends who traveled with him and helped him tell people about Jesus Christ. In Philemon 1:24, we learn that one of these friends was named Demas. Helping Paul was a good thing. Demas was doing important work for God. But unfortunately, he didn’t have his priorities in the right place. In 2 Timothy 4:10, we read about Demas one last time. “Demas loves the things of this world so much that he left me and went to Thessalonica. . .” He stopped telling people about Jesus Christ and began following the sinful ways of the world. Think about how to make sure your priorities are right as you listen to today’s episode.
In this episode, Spike is a big fan of a singer whose lyrics celebrate sinful things. But Spike learns his lesson when the singer comes to town and shows that his words reflect his lifestyle.
It’s not always easy to know whether or not something you see or hear is harmful. But the Bible gives us a guide. Philippians 4:8 tells us to “. . .keep your minds on whatever is true, pure, right, holy, friendly, and proper.” If something is true, it’s a fact. It isn’t something that will trick you into believing a lie. Something pure is clean, and has no sin. Things that are right are correct in God’s eyes. If an action is holy, it’s like it’s done for God. Friendly things don’t hurt anyone in any way. And a good way to know if something is proper is to think about whether you’d do it in front of your parents, or teachers, or the police.
