NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)--Families who use television ratings to guide their TV viewing habits are relying on a "sham" system that doesn't work, a new study asserts.
The Parents Television Council study of 546 hours of primetime broadcast programming found that 67 percent of the time, the show contained offensive programming without the proper content label. For instance, the program may have had sexual content but no "S" label to warn viewers.
The April 16 study is significant because ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox filed suit last year challenging fines imposed by the Federal Communications Commission due to various indecency violations. In fact, the networks issued a joint statement criticizing the "growing government control over what viewers should and shouldn't see" and arguing that parents already have control over their TV thanks to the V-Chip and other blocking technologies....
Dan, Thanks for pointing that out. That debunks Expositor's idea of other races before Adam. Benny Hinn has taught a similar idea--a pre-adamic race. Hmm...so how did Adam and Eve beget them? Sounds like heresies.
Expo: I did look at the context, and as usual, you are in the wrong and guilty of gross heresy. Verse one clearly states it is directed to the house of Israel, which I am not a part of.
I will go with in the context of the NT Christian. Ready? (I know your not but here goes!)
1 Thessalonians 2:19 For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?
2 Timothy 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
1 Peter 5:4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
1 John 2:28 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.
etc etc etc .
dealing with you Bible haters can be such a bore!
What church has made you so heretical false-expositor?
Finally: Can you confess that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh? I John 4:2.
Before you call someone a "heretic", you should be careful to have in hand Scriptural evidence to support your charge -- because you shall stand before Christ Jesus and be made to answer for that charge, which is false.
If there is any man whom the Lord hates, it is the false witness:
Deuteronomy 19:16-21 - 16 And if an unjust witness rise up against a man, alleging iniquity against him; 17 then shall the two men between whom the controversy is, stand before the Lord, and before the priests, and before the judges, who may be in those days. 18 And the judges shall make diligent inquiry, and, behold, if and unjust witness has borne unjust testimony; and has stood up against his brother; 19 then shall ye do to him as he wickedly devised to do against his brother, and thou shalt remove the evil from yourselves. 20 And the rest shall hear and fear, and do no more according to this evil thing in the midst of you. 21 Thine eye shall not spare him: thou shalt exact life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.
Although expositor may say some right things we must remember that he is a heretic. Recall what he posted some time ago:
‚ÄúThe Lord God created each of the various races. He gave each race its own set of strengths and abilities. He geographically separated the races. And the Lord even gave each race a distinctive skin colour, in order to help them understand that miscegenation is wrong. And the Lord God pronounced his creation -- all of it -- good. All mankind did not descend from Adam, or from Noah. The Adamic race of Genesis 2 is separate from the other races of Genesis 1.‚ÄĚ
