i <3 TV

i really do love tv. i saw this amazing interview on dateline last friday about 2 girls whose identities were switched for 5 weeks after a horrible accident. the girl thought to be dead was actually alive and the girl thought to be alive was dead... the families involved did an interview on oprah this week. these families are obviously dedicated to Christ and it was so incredible to hear them speak. the father, (who believed his daughter to be alive only to find out after 5 weeks she had died in the crash), commented about why he never sought a lawsuit. he talked about how revenge would not bring comfort and then he quoted Micah 6:8 "...And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God." Oh my gosh, it was so awesome to see that kind of faith.

so tv can show some good stuff, but it also leads to bad stuff.... and tv leads me to google. for example: i saw tom cruise on some channel the other night. for whatever reason, i started googling scientology to try and understand what was going on. i, like many, have gotten lots o'laughs at tom cruise jumping on couches and all the crazy videos, but in taking a deeper look... well, scientology is really really scary. i guess i just assumed that cults had small followings - you know groups of around 40 people and something along the lines of Heaven's Gate. However, scientology is a huge cult. the most troubling thing to me is that they use a cross as their symbol (i do not know the reason why).

anyways, i also saw an interview of oprah talking about Jesus that was slightly disturbing.

i encourage any of my 3 readers to look up information on scientology - youtube has some interesting videos as well. talk about spiritual warfare people....

(if you could careless to learn anything about scientology, i encourage you to watch "nanny 911." a-ma-zing. haha. but really, its so good.)

i'm sure you have more than 3 readers steph...but you should get a sitemeter, that way you know how many people are coming. i think that will ease your mind.

BTW, i totally have you in my google reader and love keeping up with you (but since you are in my google reader, i don't actually click on your site, so that might effect Benji's idea)

But i also wanted to say - have you seen that southpark episode/or clip on you tube where they are making fun of scientology - the awesome thing is that they say exactly what they stand for, so it's educational, funny...and of course scary!!

love you! come visit!!
