Romans 12:2
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

My Conclusion: We must be Transformed not Conformed!!!  Barbie is not innocent, she teaches little girls to admire outer beauty, to be self-indulgent, to be a pin-up girl and flaunt immodesty.  Barbie gets her worth from attention from the opposite sex.  Barbie has a career and no time for family and children.  Barbie is whatever society wants her to be…not what God wants her to be.  She hides loneliness behind a career and plastic smile and is dragging millions of little girls into “her world” every day. Barbie was supposedly created to inspire women and instead it has destroyed real womanhood and made motherhood a tragedy instead of a blessing. Join our family and throw Barbie out to the curb, she can take care of herself!!!mble.” (Luke 17:1-2) , she can take care of herself
