What About The Church Looking To The Media For Leadership

The church today is increasingly looking toward fox news and conservative talk show host as their preachers and teachers while they may be good people yet they are not apostles or prophets but have been given that place by a large portion of the church the result of this is strife and division among God’s people as preachers spend more time watching Fox news then they do in the word.. How can this be turned around?

David R Huskins well the simple answer is turn off the TV.  I did have the Lord deal with me personally to fast my “channel of choice” during the election because I realized most of the time I wasn’t speaking the mind of the LORD on the matter but the mind of my particular genre of politic. When I pulled aside I heard. I was able to prepare our congregation on what was going to be the end result of the election cycle and to help keep our very diverse congregation from dividing over issues that seem so big in an election cycle but quickly disappear after. I think for me we must again discover this is more an American issue than a CHURCH issue because much of the church don’t get to even vote in it’s government or have free press to choose from…but to those of us who are in the church we must never substitute statistics and analyst for prophecies and prophets as we just learned they can be very wrong from time to time. BUT GOD was right all along.

  • Bonnie Cooper Brown I believe we are also getting alot of WRONG doctrine being taught on facebook!! lol

  • H Scott Stimson This of course is in the USA mostly
  • Denise Parkison the media has always had a strong influence as ‘leaders’ then we should pray more for our leaders and for truth/light. maybe they will try to speak and unknown to them why the truth just starts pouring out
  • Diana Snyder Hester You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. 

    14“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 15Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
  • Alan Whitaker The answer’s in your question and it applies to everyone, not just preachers. ” . . . as preachers spend more time watching Fox news then they do in the word.” Turn the tube off . . . “tube” – I just dated myself! What well do we draw our water and drink from?
  • Denise Parkison turning it completely off can make one look unprepared and ignorant. i’m a dietitian and work in dialysis but if i don’t keep up on what’s going on “out there” then its more difficult to explain the truth and steer people away from all the myths and hype that goes on.
  • H Scott Stimson This by the way is question 16 9 more to go..
  • Rocky Walker I have no idea how it can be turned around.
  • Loften Pierce Ooooh! ouch.
  • Jim Taylor We do not get the news here in Mozambique. To find any “news” we either have to search for it online or take what gets passed to us from others. We have elected to stay away from the news and to try and hear Papa God’s updates. 
    When you are away from it for a year or so my experience has been that it is almost sickening to turn it back on. During my last visit to the US a couple years ago I had to leave the room when the “news” was on. 
    Listen to it long enough and you get used to it. Sorta like eating horse poop. Do it long enough you come to almost enjoy it.

  • Jim Taylor You guys had an election!?
  • Jim Taylor What effect did the American Presidential election have in our part of Africa?
    No real effect. Most people did not know about it or even care. Less than eight percent of the world really thought much about it.

    oops.. hit enter too quick … The situations we are involved in seem quite large at the time… until we get far enough away from them to get a wider perspective.

  • Jim Taylor I believe it would do people a lot of good if they were able to live in a totally foreign culture for a month or so and while there, try to see things through the eyes of the local people.

  • Betty Dooley Turn their TV off and get back to basics. Prayer, walking in faith and Love.

  • Lori Zwirecki Craine WOW FINALLY SOME ONE HAS BROUGHT THIS UP! THANKS!! THE BIGOTRY & BIAS AND HATRED IS POURING OUT FROM THAT AND SO MANY PEOPLE ARE IMMUNED FROM IT THAT THEY CAN’T SEE IT!! IF NOW KINGDOM CHURCH PEOPLE HAVE SUCH A MARKET ON GIVINING UP RELIGIOUS AND TRA…See More
