083: Pop Culture, Emotional Appeals, and the the Leftist Agenda

Mar 28, 2019 | Apologetics, Christian Living, Ethics, Podcast

Like most American families—Christian or not—my wife and I enjoy watching TV.

As a culturally concerned Christian parent, however, there’s a need to be on the lookout for bad ideas in just about everything we consume. Sadly, most Christian parents are taken unsuspectingly by advanced marketing tactics that are made to appeal to emotional concerns of theirs, such as their own self-identify, in hopes of achieving political persuasiveness.

The 17th Century political activist Andrew Fletcher said, “Let me make the songs of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws.”

Hundreds of years ago, Fletcher understood something that most people are not aware of—and thus, not on the lookout for—even today.

In this episode of the show I want to unpack something that happened on a recent episode of the TV show, For the People, and explain the marketing tactic that was used to make the emotional appeal. Then, I’ll give you three steps you can use to help guard your family from being taken by these tactics when they appear.
