The Power of Three Words

Three words. Found while searching through Blogs. But what effect have the words?

Repulsion? Contempt? Fear? Or a sense of forgiveness?

Depends on the person? Perhaps.

Depends on the media? Certainly.

To see such words evokes a programmed response set by the news surrounding the figures. Such a response can work negatively, given the chance.

Redemption? Perhaps we should think about the power the media has to evoke this response. If the comment has truth within (which it does, from a Christian point of view), then why the disgust at first sight?

Deus ex Media.

    Provocative.

    I knew of a church in Toronto that created a stir by posting a sign, during the Christmas season, that read,

    BORN TO DIE.

    It didn’t go over very well with the neighbours. Out of keeping with the celebratory spirit of the season, no doubt.
