Entertainment or Sintainment?

Written by Smart LifestyleChristian Article

The Trojan Horse tale narrates how the Greeks, after a fruitless 10-year siege of Troy, desperately needed to enter the city and win the war. They constructed a horse of mountainous size and secretly filled its belly and the huge hollow insides with armed warriors. Then the rest of the Greeks pretended to sail away in surrender, and the Trojans pulled the horse into their city as a victory trophy. 

That night, the Greek force crept out of the horse and opened the gates for the rest of the army, which had sailed back under cover of night. They entered and destroyed the city of Troy, decisively ending the war. Metaphorically a "Trojan Horse" has come to mean any trick or stratagem that causes a target to invite a foe into a securely protected place.

For millenniums, Satan has been desperate to enter human minds and hearts to decidedly conquer their virtue and purity. To achieve this, he has successfully constructed the modern 'Trojan Horse' we call Sintainment, which refers to television programs, movies, music, books, video games etc. that are both sinful and entertaining!
Inside the horse are moral battle warriors – adultery, lies, corruption, violence, sex, nudity and many other forms of wickedness ready to tiptoe out and open the gates for more evil to come into the heart and destroy it.

Millions of unsuspecting targets (even those who profess to love God or to hate evil) have opened avenues into their souls wide and pulled the ‘horse’ into their homes, offices, schools, churches unaware of its concealed sin agenda. The sin hidden in entertainment, once consumed, begins to destroy good morals, corrupts the mind and negatively impacts on views and behavior, while giving pleasure to the viewer/reader/player.

In the end, many find themselves slaves and even addicts of iniquity: pornography, violent behavior, impure thoughts, sexual immorality, drugs, foul language and the list goes to infinity. Precious time is also sacrificed to vanities, which could have been used to talk to God and to search His word and also time for family and/or personal development gets squandered.

Romans 1:29-32 warns that in God’s final judgment, evil doers will be punished for their violation of God’s law together with those who had pleasure in them: those who were entertained by sin. 

We do well to keep this Trojan Horse away from our lives.

Note: the word Sintainment does not exist but was coined by the author to make a point. It combines the words sin(ful) and (enter)tainment the same way we have words like edutainment.
