(S, O) Brief clips of rock videos and advertising with sexual/occultic themes


Summary:

POWER SURGE: ROCK N' ROLL and POWER SURGE: SEX are two volumes in a four-part video series intended as a teaching aid for teenagers. Each tape is 15-minutes long and includes a small curriculum package with a meeting outline, discussion questions and Scripture verses. The curriculum package ends with a three-point summary of the topic. POWER SURGE is long on flash, but short on content and biblical authority. An unabashedly scripture centered focus would give these videos the power they lack.


Review:

POWER SURGE: ROCK N' ROLL and POWER SURGE: SEX are two volumes in a four-part video series for teenagers. Each tape is 15-minutes long and includes a small curriculum with a meeting outline, discussion questions and Scripture verses. POWER SURGE: ROCK N' ROLL hits the hardest when it makes a comparison between pop songs and commercial advertising. Just as advertising attracts people to to certain products, rock songs are often commercials for drugs, sex and the occult. POWER SURGE: SEX begins with a mistaken assumption that God created sex primarily for "fun". There is no scriptural support for this statement; however, the second reason, sex produces the blessing of children, is easily supported with Psalm 127:3-5; 128:3 and Isaiah 8:18. The argument that sex is mainly for pleasure is the cornerstone of the world's philosophy os sex--the wrong place to start when teaching teenagers moral standards.@@@Both POWER SURGE videos are cluttered with cliche-ridden snippets of teen interviews and a grainy, apparently-staged, party film. POWER SURGE is long on flash but short on content and biblical authority. An unabashedly scripture centered focus would give these videos the power they lack.
