Celebrity Worship

Post  Dan on Sun Aug 31, 2008 8:53 am

The highest paid in this country are entertainers. The most respected and admired are those in the entertainment industry.

Comedians,actors,singers,football and basketball players and so on make more money individually in a year than most people in a lifetime.

A doctor makes a lot of money compared to the average everyday worker yet are held in contempt for the money they earn while entertainers are looked on with envy and desire.

The doctor who just saved a life could stand to make nothing and be sued in the bargain. Johnny Carson made somewhere around $9,000 per hour for talking about silly topics and making jokes.

Visit youtube.com and you can view thousands upon thousands of videos made by people devoting their time at no pay for the purpose of
attaining their own celebrity status.

What is it that causes us to give so much value to entertainment?

The waitress supporting her kids has a higher purpose in working her job than the smart mouthed comedian but we praise the comedian and call the waitress a loser.

The irony is while looking down on the waitress, we look down on ourselves as well. Blind to our own self perpetuated role in this society.

The essence of it is we have created idols. In our nature as humans we have an inherent need to worship God. You can call God any name you want but the built in requirement in people is the same.

When we do not worship God, we create idols to serve in his place. Recognizing that is difficult because it all seems so harmless and
fun. We need to laugh and be distracted from our dingy lives right? What's the harm in being entertained?
