Consecrate Yourselves and be Holy

LORD : For I am the LORD your GOD; consecrate yourselves therefore, and be holy, for I am holy. [Lev 11:44]

LORD to the ancient Israelites : "You shall be holy to me; for I the LORD am holy, and have separated you from the peoples, that you should be mine." [Lev 20:26]

People who profess to have religion should be "honest, upright, sober, firm in keeping the commandments of LORD and teachings of Jesus, and act according to TRUTH." They should be holy like Jesus, like LORD.

Yesterday I watched ETV (Education TV of Hong Kong), which is a program shown to students of age about 9 ~ 12 in Hong Kong. Several boys and girls of similar age (about 10) starred in the above program. They talked in a way that greatly astonished me. (They must have been directed by the program director, and the script must have been written that way.) I think, what if other boys and girls imitate their talk !

If that is a program directed towards the adult audience, for entertainment purposes, I would not object to such language, but that is not, it is to be shown in CLASSROOMS ! under the supervision of teachers. (Those with responsibility MUST NOT BE RASH NOR RECKLESS.)

Forsake an ungodly life, forsake an un-restrained life, because one day, we will have to give account of what we did and said before the Judgement Seat of LORD.
