I went to the movies recently and, as usual, I had to watch a ton of previews before the main attraction. In between previews a Levi’s commercial came up on the screen and I couldn’t believe my eyes and ears. For 60 seconds Levi’s tried to brain wash me, making me think I was in control of my life in a lost world where the only hope comes from within me, and the gods will delight in me if I beat death. This is a perfect example of the world decay we are living in and the pagan philosophy that is being delivered to our children through the media. To see and hear this on a large movie screen was eye striking.
Aside from the words, the video was astonishing and alarming. Early in the video, you see a women standing on a roof overlooking a city, facing the sun and stretching her arms out wearing a black feathered jacket that looks likes wings – black wings. All I could think about was the non-Christians sitting in the theater with me and how defenseless they were to believe and absorb this world religion. Here is a link to the video that is being aired in the movie theaters: Levis Go Forth Commercial
Check out the poem:
your life is your life
don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
be on the watch.
there are ways out.
there is a light somewhere.
it may not be much light but
it beats the darkness.
be on the watch.
the gods will offer you chances.
you can’t beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes.
and the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
The poem, itself, truly represents the world view toward a life that leads to death. “Your life is your life” is not true and is a direct contradiction to Christianity. Our lives were bought at a price by the blood of Jesus Christ who was hung on a tree to die for our sins so that we won’t see our own death, but rather live with God in Heaven. In I Corinthians 7:23, Paul makes it clear in his letter to the Corinthians: “You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men.” This poem is totally based on pagan deceptions and contradictions to the Bible. If I didn’t know the author, I would of thought Satan wrote it himself.
I was curious about this poem in the Levi’s commercial, and wanted to know more about the poet behind the words – Charles Bukowski (8/16/1920 – 3/9/1994). Charles produced a large portfolio of written work, much of which was used in short films aside from fictional literature and taboo fantasy novels. Was Charles a Christian? No. His work demonstrates a pagan view of self-indulgence, denying any reality of God and any relationship with Jesus Christ. He died in San Pedro as a victim to leukemia in 1994. His funeral was conducted by Buddhist Monks. Today, Charles is living in Hades (Hell) and probably now realizes he got it all wrong and wishes he never wrote his pieces for the public to read. Today, Satan continues to use his work in the media to reach out to the next generations around the world. This poem and video summarizes a world religion that blinds the human race from the Truth and Grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
It’s interesting and very sad to read the reviews and comments associated with this Levi’s video on YouTube - Levis Go Forth Commercial. People love it and are feed inspiration. Satan’s work is strong as an angel of light for both the lost and the Saved. Here are a few comments:
“I Love this commercial-3 It’s leaves a positive impact and I feel completely inspired.”
“This is so inspirational….. Even though you’re going through tough times right now, there’s a way out…always a way out. There’s light somewhere, though it might not be much light but surely it beats the darkness. Keep watching, believe in yourself and fate (the gods) will offer you chances. Recognize and grab with both hands when you see them.The more often you learn to do this the more chances (light) there’ll be. Know this while you v your life cos 2morrow might be too late. Fate awaits U.”
“Great poem, very inspiring.”
“I’m sorry but i’m in love with this advert :’) made me happy and a be more care free in my life :’)”
“I watch this every time I forget. Every time I forget that life is beautiful and worth living and full of opportunities. Every time I forget that I am marvelous, that I can create the light, and that the gods wait to delight in me. I watch this when I’m doing homework at midnight and I feel so far from alive. And then I remember.”
“This commercial always uplifts me a little. I just wanna be where these people are at and doing what they’re doing.. Instead I’m stuck here where I am forced to do nothing with my life. One day I’ll leave this place and be free and live by the words of this commercial(:”
I am so happy and blessed I can sit in a theater and recognize the false message the media delivers, standing guard to my heart and mind in the Holy Spirit. I am blessed with the knowledge and wisdom of God. I pray for more, and I pray for the others to also GO FORTH as a Witness, a Steward, a Herald, and a Watchman for God. I will go forth in Jesus Christ. Amen.

As a Christian living by faith, our last breath on earth will be our first breath in Heaven.
Sorry, Charles, you got it all wrong.
