  1. Wasn’t it Mr. Rogers who beseeched us to use our imagination? I’m sad to say, Mr. Rogers was leading us children astray, and he was in on the conspiracy. I saw a short clip of his after the synagogue shooting in his neighborhood. The whole thing showed photos from “outer space.” That had absolutely nothing to do with the synagogue shooting. Satan uses every ounce of air time..”For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 KJV.

    The root word for imagination is image, and the root word for romance is Roman. Hollywood uses romance and imagery to captivate the minds of billions, just like NASA. Oh how I wish we would stop sitting our children down in front of the television. Satan is the great deceiver, and he is the prince of the air, as in air waves. If TV and movies aren’t enough, he also uses the radio. Sin begins in the mind. You have the power to turn off his influence, “and have a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.” 2 Corinthians 10:6 KJV.
