Oops! TOP TV

Here is an article that appeared in our local newspaper this week that deals with a recently introduced pay-per-view South African satellite television channel named TOP TV, which is seeking a broadcasting licence to introduce pornography channels to its programming schedule. The report reads as follows:

“Oops! Top TV admits it is planning porn channels after all” ~ The Witness, Wednesday, December 7, 2011

TOP TV plans to introduce three porn channels, operator On Digital Media (ODM) announced yesterday (i.e. Dec. 6, 2011).

This was the day after TOP TV denied involvement with Porn Satellite TV’s (PSat) 24-hour porn channel.

The public has until the end of today (7th) to submit its views on ODM’s application to broadcast three Playboy TV channels.

It said the company is “aware that adult content is a very sensitive subject”.

It said the channels will be a stand-alone package not available to regular subscribers, who will not see any on-air promotions or programme guides for the porn offerings. The porn will be encrypted and viewers will need to key in a PIN code to see it.

TOP TV’s decision follows its failure to buy sports programming, and the company said it was forced to look at other “niche” offerings. [Can you believe it? Can’t get idol-worship (sport) so we will give them perversion and smut (porn)]

Last May CEO Vino Govender promised that TOP TV would not be offering adult entertainment.

Independent Communications Authority of SA spokesperson Paseka Maleka said the decision on the authorisation of the three pornography channels will be made after the public consultation process is completed.

While TOP TV says it is approaching its porn in a very responsible way, the Family Policy Institute disagrees.

The Institute’s director, Errol Naidoo, said it will call for a boycott of the broadcaster if the licence is granted.

“It is misleading and deceptive that TOP TV can be upset over PSat, but they are planning to do the same.

“For them it is about money-making, not about the effect that porn has on families and men (and women) who become addicted.

“If the channels go ahead we encourage Christian citizens and members of other faith groups to stop paying their TOP TV subscriptions and cancel their contracts.”

TOP TV said yesterday it will take legal action against French company CanalSat, which plans to use the same satellite as TOP TV for its PSat hardcore pornography channel.

Just recently I blogged about The Perversion of Pornography, and it now seems that ICASA and the broadcasting television company known as TOP TV are going the same route as they are committed to promote the perversion of pornography in South Africa. This evil has already been introduced into this society by our ANC government, who has allowed pornographic materiel to be viewed since “democracy” came to South Africa in 1994 under the banner of the Films and Publications Act, 1996 (Act No. 65 of 1996)(Amended).

South Africa is not a democracy – it is a capitalist communist society that is atheistic and idolatrise – worshipping of many gods through their freedom of religion as contained in the SA constitution and bill of rights. It comes as no surprise that if the ruling party has no moral standards pertaining to what God commands in His Word, do not be surprised when the majority of the populace who voted them into power have no morals either. Just recently a “Secrecy Bill” was voted on in parliament and was adopted for further scrutiny and the very reason for this is that this will limit the media reporting on any governmental issues or the public knowing the truth of what is happening in the corridors of government. This will allow corrupt officials to continue defrauding the state coffers and the communists will control the people as to what they can know! There is no freedom in this. There is also an old saying that goes: “What monkey see, monkey do.” This saying can also be applied to lack of morals, too. If government sets an immoral example, the followers will be immoral themselves! They are only following the bad example set for them.

Why is this preceding paragraph mentioned? It has much foundation in this report. If a country, purporting to be “Christian”, votes for immorality by their own hand at the polling booths, and immorality dictates by those who are God-haters by the very fact they do not follow and keep His Commandments (see John 14:15, 21), then you can expect that the old serpent the Devil, Satan is being worshipped. The very reason that much crime prevails in South Africa is that, even if there are “a majority of christian believers” (which I doubt) in South Africa, it is as a result that much pagan and heathen practices and idolatries prevail and even those that believe in “God” are not following the One True God, Jesus Christ the Righteous, but many false gods (see Psalm 115). Idolatries!! This includes the hundreds of indigenous christian-faith religions masquerading as Christianity. God sees this as an abomination and He will not bless evil and wicked practices that unfold daily before Him. That is why –

It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. ~ Hebrews 10:31

King of kings, Lord of lords, Jesus Christ said:

(27) Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: (28) But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. ~ Matthew 5:27, 28

The decisions that ICASA and TOP TV managements make surrounding the “going ahead” with the porn channels will have eternal consequences, not only for the decisions individuals make for their organisations, but also for the souls that sin or continue in their sin from the decisions made. Scripture reads, for it is written:

(10) For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. ~ 2 Corinthians 5:10

and

(11) And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. (12) And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. (13) And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. (14) And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. (15) And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. ~ Revelation 20:11-15

If you do not have your name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life you will not be welcomed into eternal life by the Lord Jesus Christ, Almighty God, but you will have another ‘welcoming’ committee on entering into Hell:

(10) And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. ~ Revelation 20:10

God has already made a way out for evil and wicked sinners to escape His wrath to come. The Good News, the Gospel of God, is:

(16) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (17) For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (18) He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (19) And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. (20) For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. (21) But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.  ~ John 3:16-21

(36) He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. ~ John 3:36

Before the decision is taken, remember God’s Word:

(19) I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: ~ Deuteronomy 30:19

Almighty God has given you the answer – choose wisely!
