from my notebook

My head is full of thoughts, and I have to write them down.


v I watched part of ABC’s new series “V” last night and was struck by a couple of Biblical warnings.

First V’s story line involves beings from another planet coming to Earth in huge vessels reminiscent of those in Independence Day. Several hover over major cities around the world where the bottom of the spaceships become a huge screen for their attractive, female leader to speak to the world.

As people listen to her comments of peace and unity, they smile and applaud her as if she is the savior of the world. At first I was surprised by this quick acceptance, but then I thought, you know this is just like the average person – so gullible.

People are looking for peace, tranquility, happiness, prosperity everywhere and anywhere, even from aliens from another planet. They look good, sound good, so we take them at their word with little or no examination (1 John 4:1).

Several times the Leader of the “Visitors” tells the people of Earth, “We are of peace, always.” Her calm, attractive demeanor that let nothing get the best of her quickly reminded me of 2 Corinthians 11:14, “And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.”

“V” is just a TV series, but it does seem to have some interesting parallels to human nature and the present.
