Just saw excellent video by Little Light Studios on the connections between Hollywoods biggest night “The Oscars” and the golden idols that go all the way back to Babylon and the Egyptian gods. The images and video clips are irrefutible and extremely well done. Please check them out here on YouTube & Their Blog. -Josh
A Sober Warning About Being Defiled by False gods
Unclean in Scripture means “to be defiled, polluted, unhealthy, or unfit,” and refers to foods that are unfit, defilement of religious character, and moral or spiritual impurity. The word “defilement” describes a sinful and unfit condition (Isaiah 6:5). The Old Testament distinguishes between what is clean and helpful and what is unclean and unacceptable (Leviticus 10:10). The New Testament deals more with the spiritual application and lists uncleanness or moral defilement along with fornication and other sins as “works of the flesh” (Galatians 5:19-21).
In the gospels, “unclean” describes those who are possessed by demonic spirits through constant submission to evil. Uncleanness represents sin, and sin separates man from God. Because of sin, “we are all like an unclean thing” (Isaiah 64:6). Believers are not called to uncleanness but to live in holiness (I Thessalonians 4:7). We are not to yield our members to uncleanness but to righteousness and holiness (Romans 6:19).
The teaching about uncleanness springs from the concept of God’s holiness (Leviticus 11:44-45). It is a miracle in itself that freedom from uncleanness and guilt is possible through God’s grace. Holiness within, purity of heart, is possible through the exercise of faith in Christ’s redemptive work and obedience to His truth. -Bible Tools
For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD.
The Academy awards was birthed shortly after the formation of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 1927. The fledgling organization held a dinner in the Crystal Ballroom of the Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles to set out its goals. Among the topics discussed that night was how best to honor outstanding movie making achievements and thereby encourage excellence in all facets of motion picture production. The first banquet was held on May 16, 1929 in which they handed out the first statues. Officially they are named the Academy Award of Merit. The statuette has become the most recognized trophy in the world, known by its nickname, Oscar.
What’s fascinating about the design of the statue is that it is an art deco version of the ancient Egyptian god Ptah  (pictured at the top right). In Egypt, there were two major gods in charge of PICTURE MAKING, CRAFTSMEN, AND ARTISTS. One of them was Ptah. The ancient scribes and sculptors who created the best sculptures and pictures of the temples were granted a statue of the god Ptah from the Pharaoh himself. This ritual would take place at the capital at MnNfr/Memphis in the HutKaPth/Temple of Ptah. Likewise Hollywood’s award ceremony was held in a temple (The Shrine Auditorium) from 1947-2000 where it is now currently held at the Kodak Theater.

You Must Be Born Again
So I apologize to those who have not heard that you must repent (change of mind) for many says, “I was born this way!”, Jesus says, “Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3 It is repentance then acceptance of those who are practicing sexual sin, not acceptance which progressives seek. Christ died for the sins of the world and cowardly ministers, tares, goats, and hirelings will all answer to our Heavenly King.
