The word that comes to mind when the news is on the t.v. and your hear the reporter is desensitize. Our culture has become so desensitized.
The definition of desensitize: 1. To render insensitive or less sensitive.2. Immunology To make (an individual) nonreactive or insensitive to an antigen.3. To make emotionally insensitive or unresponsive, as by long exposure or repeated shocks:
You hear of the economy(loss of jobs), weather, a child being murdered all in one breath. They usually say,”now to the next headline….” We have become so insensitive to death and destruction because we are exposed to it everyday. There is no shock factor anymore. Our emotional response has become so callous to what our grandparents, parents responses were. Satan uses this in our life to accept things that God says are unacceptable.
in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes. 2 Corinthians 2:11
