|The One-Eyed Idol Of
The Modern Home

|You have an idol in your home
With one great glaring eye?
He occupies the foremost place
And I will tell you why.
We sacrifice to him our time
Because he'll entertain,
And to our bulging eyes display
All life's sorry train -
Vice and crime and viciousness,
Horror, shame and sin -
(We've wasted many precious hours
Since we have let him in.)
But now he dominates our home.
For God we have no time.
Our eyes are dimmed by "Gunsmoke".
Our minds are filled with crime.
"I bring into your living room
Bartender, harlot, thief,
And from the sick commercials
I give you no relief.
"I brainwash children and prepare
Their minds by what they hear;
I make attractive violence,
Sin, cigarettes and beer.
"You speak of young delinquents
And deplore their vicious deeds?
But I continue merrily
To sow the vicious seeds.
"The cheating wife or husband
Is the accepted thing.
We're living in a 'modern' world.
Go to it! Have your fling!
"Away with outworn 'standards'?
Our day is modernized;
Such things as right and wrong!
For sin is glamorized.
"I set the world's criteria,
I am the household god.
(If you protest against me
You're a puritanic clod!)
"I'M the one that rules your home,
From God I turn your heart,
I fill your mind with banal trash
By foul, hypnotic art."
Once family altars occupied
The place where now we see
The glaring eye of Cyclops.
Only NOW he's called "T.V."

A Little Note From Cobblestone Road
The Bible tells us in Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what
is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Television has brought the ways of the world into the minds of its viewers.
We, as Christians are supposed to think biblically. We are to have the mind
of Christ. How can one be focused on the Lord Jesus when they are focused
on the latest ungodly TV show? Ephesians 5:11 commands us: And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
Phil 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if
there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
