Retractions and an apology
Attempting to prove that TBN programs such as iShine , JUCE and others lure men to sin by purposely showcasing scantily clothed women , I regrettably placed some of those examples on YouTube . I rationalized at the time , that because television has from its inception done the same , that most consciences were marred by that continual seduction anyway , and that exposing the sensual exposers by YouTubing them would hopefully enlighten , and not offend . I have hopefully deleted all of those TBN seductive poses I YouTubed just prior to making this apology . The world would laugh at this , but Christians understand . Jesus said that whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart , and that men who do that need to make a covenant with their eyes in order not to do so , figuratively plucking out their right eye if necessary , so that they might not be cast into hell . He warned men to keep from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman , and not to be taken by her eyelids nor her beauty . He warned as with the flood and Sodom , he that being often reproved hardeneth his neck , shall suddenly be destroyed . David suffered much because he succumbed to that temptation . Women have that similar problem .Whether TBN's temptresses were concerned about onlookers' reactions is moot . Those who truly know and obey Christ would never publicly display scantily clad young women as good representatives of Christ . Volumes can be written about men who misrepresent him today also .
