Touched By An Angel ... one of my favorites.

Touched by an Angel, a television show that aired over a decade ago, was a heart warming and inspirational story about Angels from Heaven intervening in the lives of people at a turning point to prevent a terrible choice and possibly disastrous direction that would ruin their chances at entering Heaven one day.

Although the actors were just reading scripts and it was all done in the name of entertainment, I felt like this type of show was better than most because it had a moral lesson to teach. There are many shows today that have absolutely no moral lessons and in fact are down right corrupt and have a bad influence on viewers. We are living in a time I think that we need more shows like Touched by an Angel and less shows like Shades of Blue and The Blacklist.

I also remember a time when I watched Gomer Pyle USMC, Father Knows Best, I Love Lucy and others. Thinking of it, the children of today don't even know what it was like watching television from an antenna much less in black and white with shows like Leave It To Beaver, My Three Sons and Dragnet and Chips. There once was a wealth of good wholesome television that was innocent and did not raise the bar on violent and sexually explicit content.

The children of today are aware of such movies as The Human Centipede, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, because children ages 6 to 16 have parents that drink, smoke, cuss and yes, let their offspring watch these R-Rated Movies. What does this tell you about the level of anti-Christian non-ethics that exists in our current world? I used to think it would be nice to look into the future and see a world like the television shows Star Trek depict of man going to the stars where no man has gone before and the movie 2001 A Space Odyssey with man living in a pinwheel type of space station in orbit of Earth and going to the Moon and Mars and the moons of Jupiter and Saturn.

Many people were offended by the idea of man from ape and thus this movie turned a lot of heads for that reason alone. The Planet of the Apes was another one that suggested the idea that in several thousands of years, apes would evolve into intelligent creatures much like man was in the 20th Century and humans would devolve into a more basic and subserviant life form.

The media is getting more violent every day. I don't doubt that one day public executions will be a form of entertainment for the masses as a sort of crime deterrent but will more likely just produce more gore mongering.

Money is still being used. One day we will be a cashless generation on a global level. No one will ever see the words that are printed on the dollar bill that still indicates a certain moral ethic of God's existence.

The day they take away the words, 'In God We Trust' will be the day I leave this planet, in search for more intelligent life forms. Carl Sagan once said, "We are the stewards of the planet Earth. We are made of Starstuff." from the original series, 'Cosmos'. I was present at one of his lectures at the University of Texas at Dallas back in the 1970's.

The title of my article ranks 70. This is impressive I think. You can get your article titles analyzed for free at this site: Headline Analyzer

I hope that we will NEVER be a cashless generation. Big Brother truly would be here then. (George Orwell)

It is about morality issues and issues about personal faith in God. It is a fairy tale but it is still inspirational in it's basic message.
