We are staying in a household with a television. Not being tele-people, we have been channel-surfing and stopped on Vision TV, at 100 Huntley Street. I haven’t watched much Christian TV except the Daily Mass, and I was quite shocked by a “Christian” group of women, talking about their businesses, and looking like runway models. Styled and dyed hair, lots of makeup, very trendy and somewhat revealing clothes. What about them said “I am a Christian woman?” Nothing, except some superficial talk about Jesus. They sounded like an investment club.
Ladies, most women cannot relate to these television personalities. I have no interest in relating to them, except to say “Repent!” Am I being judgemental? Or discerning?
Our Lord does not call us to make good investments. Our Lord does not call us to fit into the world by looking worldly. Our Lord calls us to follow Him in simplicity and humility, to be honest and plain and obedient, that our yes be yes, our no be no, and our appearances be as He made us. When the world looks at us, they should see a Christian in appearance and behavior. We don’t need to be admired. We don’t need to be desired. We need to follow the words of Jesus Christ, He crucified, risen to new life, and calling us to Him.
Don’t be deceived. The world will try to sell us Christianity. But we are to look to Him in faith.
