New TLC Reality Show: Provocative Preachers’ Wives

Proverbs 31:10-12:

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.  11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.  12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

The church visible has become a cesspool.

TLC is introducing a new reality show called “The Sisterhood.”  With a Real Housewives of Atlanta feel, the producers of the show will follow around five Atlanta-area preachers’ wives as they engage in behavior that is worldly and wanton – all for the sake of reality television.

Now, you could look at this and suspect TLC’s producers are attempting to be sacrilegious and controversial by developing a concept that centers on “church.”  There’s an element of truth to that, but what do you expect from the world?  They have no loyalty to the church of our Lord Jesus Christ, nor would they having a problem desecrating it.  The bigger picture here is the fact that we have the type of church today where preachers and their wives are WILLING to be a spectacle and bring reproach on the Lord. Were the church following the clear guidelines of Scripture and our preachers dedicating themselves to pursuing a life of holiness and separation from the world, smutty shows like this wouldn’t even be possible, much less be an issue.

The description of the show is as follows:

The Sisterhood is set to begin airing on January 1st on the popular Learning Channel, which often features reality shows of various types. The broadcast follows five women that are married to preachers in one of the largest cities in the Bible Belt, who often dress provocatively, giggle about sexual matters with their friends and husbands, and live on the edge in a variety of ways.

“She’s fit and fabulous and her wardrobe leaves little to the imagination,” reads the bio for Tara Lewis, a certified fitness instructor who recently moved to Atlanta from Los Angeles after her husband took a job at a church in the area.

“Tell the devil he’s a liar!” Lewis announces in the preview, while wearing skin-tight shorts and a t-shirt that she pulled up to expose her midriff.

“Did you get breast implants, too?” asks Christina Murray over dinner with the women, whose husband Anthony leads Oasis Family Life Church.  (Online Source)

Not exactly Proverbs 31 women, are they?

Amazing what passes for entertainment today, isn’t it?

    Until we see ourselves spiritually as having filthy rags, the glorious gospel of Christ can have no effect on us. Even the world mocks this kind of Christianity…these people are enemies of the cross.

    Zechariah 3
    New American Standard Bible (NASB)
    Joshua, the High Priest
    3 Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to accuse him. 2 The Lord said to Satan, “The Lord rebuke you, Satan! Indeed, the Lord who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Is this not a brand plucked from the fire?” 3 Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments and standing before the angel. 4 He spoke and said to those who were standing before him, saying, “Remove the filthy garments from him.” Again he said to him, “See, I have taken your iniquity away from you and will clothe you with festal robes.” 5 Then I said, “Let them put a clean turban on his head.” So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him with garments, while the angel of the Lord was standing by.
    6 And the angel of the Lord admonished Joshua, saying, 7 “Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘If you will walk in My ways and if you will perform My service, then you will also govern My house and also have charge of My courts, and I will grant you free access among these who are standing here.

    How is there a future for them among the lost when they are lost themselves?

    People of God: Such a wordly show should not surprise anyone in these last days. This so called reality show is real….it is really showing how wordly and profane much of the church is. It is caught up with the world and its styles and ways of thinking. This program will be a hit! Why? Because so many “church” folks will tune in and get a laugh or a giggle and they will, in turn, tell others to watch it. It will be fodder for the gossip mills and the “ladies” on this program will do more provocative things in future shows to make sure viewers turn in to see or hear the latest gossip or put down or shout out. It is contrived, worldly, profane and is of not a good report. So what? These “ladies” and their silly husband/pastors could care less about the integrity of the gospel message or how it is viewed by the sinner. This program will hold the church up to more contempt and ridicule and make the sinner smug in thinking that he or she does not need to go to such a “church” since they will feel by the standards on this program that they are OK with God.
    Satan is having a field day with this gibberish and foolishness. These “church ladies” are totally clueless and without Holy Spirit discernment if they are that silly to be led off to be engaged in such
    foolishness. Can you image what the apostles would have said if they were walking the US of A and saw and heard this program…among many others..that profess to know the Christ? They would be refrained from calling down lightning from heaven on this outrage! But, the “church” will buckle under and very few will comment about this nonsense and these “ladies” will be deceived in thinking that they are doing ministry and are being a blessing to the Body of Christ!
    Deceived and being deceived!

    What a great responsibility it is to be a pastor’s wife, never a stumbling block to those weak in faith!! My prayer…for the mama whose body is stretched beyond recognition from birthing her precious babies, for the teenager who struggles with anorexia and feels that life is out of control, for the woman who hides her body by overeating as she struggles with the memory of abuse…may the Lord not allow women such as these “preacher’s wives” to be stumbling blocks in your walk with Him.
