From Good Girl To Very Bad

Parents are in an uproar over Miley Cyrus' recent performance.  {Any parents who allow their children to watch MTV should expect filth.}  I saw a glimpse of it and was deeply saddened.  We have watched Hannah Montana turn into a sex symbol.  Even Taylor Swift, who use to wear modest, beautiful dresses and sang about sweet love songs, is progressively becoming angrier and sexier.

Why does this happen over and over again?  Even nations founded upon biblical principles, ie, America, continually get worse and worse, allowing all kinds of things that were forbidden just twenty years ago.

Unless your life is deeply entrenched in God's Word, you are fodder for Satan.  The prince of the power of the air is alive and well and loves destroying people.  

The world looks attractive and is continually offering up forbidden fruit:  adultery, sex before marriage, living together, dressing immodestly, overeating, lying, cheating, stealing, etc.  They all look fun and exciting before you take a bite and then afterwards, you discover the apple was poisoned.

God's ways work.  They are for our good.  Continually teach your children God's Word so they won't be enticed by the world's evil ways.  You, as their mother,  should be in the Word daily so you will be able to easily distinguish good from evil and teach your children well.  Most importantly, make sure your daughters know who they are in Christ and their immense value to the God.  

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, 
who put darkness for light and light for darkness, 
who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.
Isaiah 5:20
