7 Ways The Bible Influences You Today

Power, lust, greed, sex, gluttony, laziness, and war.

Forget about reading Fifty Shades of Grey just read The Bible or watch it on The History Channel!

Roma Downey (Touched by an Angel) and reality show mogul Mark Burnett (Survivor, The Amazing Race) produce The Bible, and have brought viewers what is being called, “The Bible for today’s generation.” They’re not kidding.

Today, children are growing up with more wars than their parents and grandparents. Sex and violence are prevalent in TV shows, video games, and movies.

Reality Contestants Miss Their Families: Why?

I watch reality shows such as The Biggest Loser, The Amazing Race, What Not to Wear, and Survivor. I often wonder why people sign up for these shows and then break down crying they miss their families. Why? You signed up for the reality show. You knew what you were getting into, didn’t you? Did you read the contract? Did you understand the contract and rules? If you’re going to miss your family, don’t sign up for a reality show!

If you sign up for The Biggest Loser and get picked, be grateful and don’t complain and whine that you miss your family. The other people who didn’t make the cut would gladly trade places with you in a second. You’re there to change your life for you and your family. Be grateful for the opportunity and wipe away your tears.

When you go on a show like Survivor, you travel to an exotic location far away from your family. Make sure you’re ready for this adventure. You can always take yourself out of the game, but you may regret it. Survivor can be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Even though you may miss your family, stick it out. It’s only 39-days!

If you’ll miss your family, don’t go on a reality show! Stay home and watch the show on TV.
