It’s so interesting when I hear people who would have nothing to do with Jesus speak His name in frustration or as an exclamation, like Jesus is a Four Letter Word, one of those Four Letter Words. In the media I have heard so many renditions of its uses. One thing I do wonder…
Could I go on national Television and say “Jesus loves you”? Would it be allowed? Would I be “beeped”?
I was watching a current series of a show that began in the 60s.
This show since its creation has had many follow up series and movies over the decades that followed and they had just began a new one. I had always seen the show as somewhat wholesome. This show aired in one of the basic network channels. As I was watching one the characters, who was portrayed as a bit innocent and sweet blurted the f bomb
I was like, wait whoa, when did I turn to a network channel? And what I will say is it was streaming on a service, so it’s possible this did not air directly on television but it was definitely unexpected. It seems as time has passed what wasn’t okay is starting to be more okay slowly over time. I am wondering what media will look like 50 years from now. Think of what is was like 50 years back?
It’s so curious to me that while some concepts and words are becoming more acceptable within the media, others have been slowly removed or maybe even banned. There was a time when shows spoke about God and the faith of a family on network television, but they seem more far and few between as time goes on.
Has Jesus been censured????? Is He now a four letter word????
