TopTV to air porn-my thoughts

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Today The Independent Communications Authority of SA (Icasa) has granted pay channel TopTV rights to air porn.  The press release from Icasa reads: "Icasa hereby gives notice that it has authorised On Digital Media (operating as TopTV) to broadcast the three adult content channels Playboy TV, Desire TV, and Private Spice within the watershed period.



First I was like oh ok. But when I thought about it I thought but hang on, didn't TopTV started of as a "Christian" station or should I say didn't it disguise itself as a Christian station? I remember when the press release came out, one guy commented that it's mostly Christian channels that they have.  I think that many Christians were happy to have it in their homes because finally a station that's mostly dedicated to them. (I stand to be corrected and would love to find out how many Christians own TopTV decoders). But now that Christians own their decoders,  TopTV has decided to come with a "turn around strategy" and that strategy is called "porn".   Somebody said TV is from the devil and they are probably right.  In fact I believe them. I can't believe half of the things that play on our channels. And I have literally stop watching television. My television set is like a focal point in my home. Not very useful really.

Now here is the bit and piece of this whole "turn around  strategy". The television station is going to be broadcasting their "porn" channels from 8pm to 5am. When I remember very well, 8am is family time. Or am I'm making this up?  Somebody?

And Icasa said that TopTv will have a double pin codes to safeguard children's safety. Like what the hell?  What are the chances of those kids not finding this "other" pin?

Having said that though, I would like to remind us as Christians that we should not expect the world to safeguard or even push our values forward. God calls us His ambassadors and expects us to push His Heavenly agenda here on earth. So fellow Christians can we agree that we are going to dream dreams and work hard and trust God for His favour so that we can be in charge of these big corporates.  Marching might be a start but it's not going to change anything. In the corporate world, it's money that talks. And it does not come when we are listening to prophecies and dreaming only. Money comes through trusting God, and rolling our sleeves and working hard.  I love this verse from Proverbs:

Work hard and become a leader; be lazy and become a slave - Proverbs 12:24 (NLT)


And that is so true. We are now slaves to other people's ideas because we are not taking our place in the world.  The prophet Daniel declares, "but the people that so know their God will be strong and do exploits".   The meaning is that they would show great prowess, and perform illustrious deeds in battle.

Are you going to rise and be counted?
