Billboards promoting Sex and Violence

Every day I drive 3.8 miles to take my kids to school and we see at least ten billboards promoting sex.  One is literally across from the school and the other is to the left of the school.  I always wonder, “does this not upset any other parent besides my husband and I?” No matter how much they try to change the advertisement, it’s always as revealing or more revealing than the last one.  Then I read in an article where a parent finally complained about a billboard, but to my surprise is wasn’t about the sex ads it was about a game GTA 5 due to its violent content.  Kids nowadays are younger and younger when they begin to get involved in things of sexual nature.  It’s due to all this negative advertisement we see, not just in billboards but also in TV, movies, games, media, etc. We need to stand firm in the truth and teach our children the right way so they do not go astray from the laws and commandments.  Temptation is a big factor in everyone’s life.

 

 

Deuteronomy 23:17, “There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor sodomite of the sons of Israel”
Jeremiah 10:2, “Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.”

  1. Yes! I agree so true its very scary, Will our children grow up having choice of knowing what is right or wrong. Or our the decisions already made for them. I”m so happy we have the Most High in our children lives .

  2. Good job looking out Ruthy! It’s important to remain circumspect and vigilant:
    “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” I Peter 5:8.

  3. You definitely have a point. This society has brainwashed many individuals into thinking that promoting sex is okay. They promote with clothes,perfume,alcohol,etc..that’s a shame that these companies have to promote sex in order for their products to sell.
