MAKING OUR SOCIETY A MUCH BETTER PLACE TO LIVE IN THROUGH THE MOVIE AND MUSIC MEDIUM.

The realities of this life go far beyond what we can see with our eyes, hear with our ears, smell with our noses, taste with our tongues and feel with our hands. The real issues of life go far beyond the frontiers of what we can contact with our five physical senses.

Through time, the movie as well as music medium has been doing a great job entertaining, exciting, enlightening, educating and enriching people; the movie and music medium today has become a vital part of people’s daily life. Through time also, the movies as well as television programmes people have been watching has been doing a fantastic job transferring cultures and ideologies from one part of the world to another; the way the western world systems operates and the diverse cultures of Africa are cross transferred or exchanged though the movie or television medium. People in Africa learn things about people in the western world on one hand and people in the western world learn things about people in Africa on the other hand through the movie or television medium.

Through time, we have watched and heard so many thrilling, chart bursting as well as box office hit movies and music, yet I want you to know that the movie as well as music medium is affecting or influencing our various societies across the world much deeper and intense than we really realize or know.

One machinery that has been grossly and greatly influencing or inducing the behavioural pattern of people which is consequently affecting the society is the kind of movies people watch and music they listen to.

The movie as well as music medium through time has been one major machinery that has been facilitating and fuelling the escalating increase of crime, corruption and violence in our various societies across the globe.

What a person look at longest, will become strongest in that person’s life, the more good a person sees or hears, the stronger good will gain control over the thinking, utterance, attitude and behavioural pattern of that person. While, the movie evil a person sees or hears, the stronger evil will gain control over the thinking, utterance, attitude and behavioural pattern of that person.

“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years.”

“The entrance of thy words gives light; it gives understanding unto the simple.”

There is one salient or significant truth I want to extract from these scriptures, when light enters a place, it does not leave things in the same state or condition it met them. The course of history or people’s living condition has been uttered or changed when the light God’s word carries penetrates and disperse their darkness or ignorance.
