The Media, The Church, And Jamie Lynn Spears

(1 Timothy 5:14)

Jamie Lynn Spears, Britney’s 16-year-old sister, proudly proclaimed that she
is pregnant and the media loves it! Sadly, the church, para-church
ministries, men and women of God, have done a very poor job of getting the
message of God to those who need it most…this lost and hurting world in
which we live in. It is sad when the act of a 16-year-old girl who has
clearly made choices in rebellion to God has more impact on our culture than
the church does! That is why from time to time, I feel compelled to respond
to messages that are being put forth by the secular media that are in
opposition to the Truth of the Bible, especially when those messages are
geared to children and young adults.

Jamie Lynn Spears is the star of Nickelodeon’s “Zoey 101,” a popular program
geared towards children and young adults. It came to light a few weeks ago
that she was pregnant by her 18-year-old boyfriend. Sadly, teen pregnancy
is not something new and continues to be a huge issue in a nation and world
that is in spiritual freefall. What is most troubling to me has been the
media’s glorification of Spear’s pregnancy which is what I want to address
today.

God through His Word, is very specific about HIS gift of sex. Sex is
intended for a man and woman WHO ARE MARRIED! PERIOD! ALL sex outside of
God’s plan is a sin! As I share with you often, sin always comes with a
huge price tag. When you engage in sex at any age, getting pregnant is a
very real possibility. When it is children, teens, neither the young man or
woman are ready for that responsibility and their lives become changed
forever. In too many cases, it is the baby who suffers as well.

Let me take this opportunity to say to all of those who are reading this and
got caught up in sin, made a poor choice to have sex without being married,
and became pregnant. God is a God of grace and mercy. Even in our
sinfulness, God loves us, and can turn our sin into HIS blessings. However,
that ONLY happens when we acknowledge our sin, ask God to forgive us, and
begin from that point forward to do it HIS way. When you make that choice,
God can and will bless you, no matter what your circumstances may be today.

A special note to those young women who may be pregnant. You have two, TWO,
options. Keep the baby, or give the baby up for adoption. These are the ONLY
two choices. Abortion is murder. To have an abortion is simply compounding
your initial sin. Trust me, as LONG AS YOU LIVE, the choice to kill your
baby will be with you. Having counseled thousands of women who have had an
abortion, the FACT the women’s movements, the pro-death (choice) movement
conveniently forget to tell you, is that you will never…..EVER….forget
this incident in your life.

If you are pregnant and even considering killing your baby, please take a
moment and go to this short video of less than 1 minute of an actual
abortion being performed. Before you make the horrible choice to kill your
baby, watch this video and see exactly what is going to happen to your child
first.

Another common sin that I deal with daily, is the incredible desire by a
woman who becomes pregnant to “marry the father of the baby.” Again, in
almost ALL cases, you are simply compounding your sin. Getting married
because you are pregnant is one of the absolute WORST reasons there is to
get married! I can almost insure you that the man who got you pregnant, is
most likely NOT the man God wants you to spend the rest of your life with.
In Spear’s case, there are published reports this young man who fathered her
baby has gotten another girl pregnant.

NO MAN OF GOD, WHO IS WALKING WITH THE LORD, WHO IS THE SPIRITUAL HEAD OF
YOUR RELATIONSHIP AS GOD CALLS THE MAN TO BE, WOULD HAVE EVER SLEPT WITH YOU
IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!!! I am not making a blanket condemnation of all men
who sin in this way, but in most every case, a man who is willing to sleep
with a woman out of the bonds of marriage, is NOT the man God wants you to
spend the rest of your life with.

I love you and care about you so much. GOD LOVES YOU EVEN MORE! If you are
currently pregnant out of the bonds of marriage, your first need is to get
right with God. Go to God’s promise in 1 John 1:9, and get right with God.
DON’T EVEN CONSIDER MARRIAGE UNTIL YOU CAN BE ASSURED IT IS GOD’S WILL FOR
YOUR LIFE. It may be a situation where putting your baby up for adoption is
the best alternative.

Pray, get lots of wise counsel, and God will guide you and direct you. For
those single moms out there who have already lived through the birth of your
child, again, getting right with God is your first step. Know that God can,
and will bless you and your child in incredible ways if you are willing to
submit to Him.

For those young adults who have not had this experience. LISTEN!!! God is
speaking to you today. There are CONSEQUENCES when you sin. LIFE CHANGING
CONSEQUENCES!!! Do it God’s way. Let God bring the right mate into your
life, get married, then have children in accordance with God’s perfect plan.

In closing, never forget that the secular media has NO CONSCIENCE. It simply
portrays the message our modern culture finds appealing, regardless of how
God feels. A child having a baby is NOT a glamorous experience!!! It takes
sin to accomplish, and those who are unrepentant, face incredible challenges
that ultimately harm the child involved. As I say so often, when you do it
your way, it NEVER works. When you do it God’s way, it ALWAYS WORKS!!! I
will be praying today, that you choose to do it God’s way!!!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
