The Wonderful World of Disney....Part 2



Contending for the faith...that is fighting, this is a fight that's going on. It is a spiritual fight, not against flesh and blood.


Jud 1:3  Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.


In the comments to the first installment of The Wonderful World of Disney, Ma gave me a link to a study: Disney Exposed (<---click on it and you get the entire list of audio messages...scroll down almost to the bottom to study number 280 for part one, 279 for part two, etc through 273 which is part 8. At this point I've listened to parts one and two. He treads through some stuff that is REALLY hard to listen to. Wow. Although I realize that in this life we will never be able to fully separate ourselves from the evils that are in this world, I also see that we need to abstain from it as much as we can, and indeed fight these things (mainly through prayer, but also speaking up as the Lord gives us ability and opportunity).

There are also alot of other studies in that list that I want to listen to. Scott Johnson is the speaker. In the first part he says that all that he touches on in these lectures, he has done careful documentation on, so I'll research his site and find more info as I find time. Many of the studies on the list are some things that I have "fluttered by" on previous blog posts and also in posts that I'd given in various message board forum dialogues. From just having listened to parts one and two I feel drained and squashed. This is needful for us to know about. I know it is difficult, BOY do I know it. But as Christians we need to be aware of what is happening around us...like Scott Johnson reminds us in the first audio, we need to have no fellowship with the works of darkness, so if we are to not have fellowship with it, we need to be aware of what it is exactly, and not be fooled:

Eph 5:1  Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
Eph 5:2  And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
Eph 5:3  But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;
Eph 5:4  Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
Eph 5:5  For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
Eph 5:6  Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
Eph 5:7  Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
Eph 5:8  For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
Eph 5:9  (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
Eph 5:10  Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
Eph 5:11  And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
Eph 5:12  For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
Eph 5:13  But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
Eph 5:14  Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
Eph 5:15  See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
Eph 5:16  Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

  1. First of all...I bookmarked that smiley link!

    I love Scott Johnson's teachings, but he doesn't sugar coat anything. He had a series on child abuse or something that I just couldn't get through. The Disney one is very eye opening indeed.

    As a matter of fact, it was you that introduced me to him through a law/grace teaching from sermonaudio. He's not on sermonaudio anymore, he says he was kicked off...something about railing against 501 C3s.

    I don't agree with everything he has to say...some of it is out there, but I really admire his passion and love of the truth.

    Check out his Hebrew roots teachings too.

  2. Hi Ma,

    That is a nice smilie link :) I had lost my smilie links, couldn't find the ones I had before, but found better ones!

    I know what you mean about not agreeing with everything... on part 3 Scott goes into some what I speculate are speculations that might be true, and might not be. But I must say that I've noticed that I wanted to believe Disney's "squeaky clean image" and also wanted to accept a "live and let live" attitude on homosexuality. These lectures really hone in on challenging that laissez faire and wishy-washy attitude. I don't think I can change anyone, but I shouldn't therefore condone these things, or give the appearance that I am in agreement with it.

    I can see how what he says would be found to be irksome by those who do not want their evil deeds exposed...but I do believe we need to be bold about stating what is true, in love, in hopes that there may be some that the Lord will pierce their heart in conviction of the truth. We are, after all, to EARNESTLY contend (fight) for the truth. I agree that by his passion, Dr. Johnson seems to be doing just that, and I need to keep him in my prayers.

    I will check his Hebrew roots lectures, thanks!

  3. I just downloaded part one again..so I will be a bit behind, but this is a good series to revisit.

    I remember one thing that he said that I am not really sure on is about things (Disney movies,etc) being "cursed objects." If I remember correctly, didn't John Todd kinda say the same thing? I'm not really sure that I buy into that. In this, Johnson sort of seems to be a bit "fear mongering" although I totally know that is not his intent.

  4. Hmmm, I don't remember, I'll have to revisit John Todd, also Fritz Springmeyer.

    I'm reading something by Springmeyer:

    http://www.thewatcherfiles.com/bloodlines/disney.htm

    that is a section of this book:

    http://www.thewatcherfiles.com/bloodlines/index.htm

    It is weird, he talks about double agents and sleeper agents... and their methods... what is interesting is that John Todd and Fritz Springmeier were both imprisoned and killed, but Alex Jones can shoot his mouth off all he wants to and nothing happens to him. Check out the part that talks about "chicken feed". They are allowed to talk about a few things that have become "declassified" but if they go further, they know something bad will happen to them... Todd and Springmeier both went beyond what they were "supposed to ... or allowed to, say"
