CHRISTIAN AND TELEVISION

When Christians whet their appetites with carnal TV (most of which is geared towards illicit sexual activity) they are only promoted and provoked towards more ungodliness. Ministers are especially in this hour indulging themselves in the vicarious sins of the smut ridden TV programs, and then sneaking the "sex" videos and magazines into their homes to participate in the more forbidden pleasures. Never before have God's men and women been so far from His holiness in their actions and thought lives. When a minster steeps himself in the filth of the world, how can he honestly minster the clean, pure, holy word of God? How can he reflect the standard of holiness and righteousness after having an orgy in his thought life brought on by pornographic viewing? There is an epidemic in the land among the preachers. They are consumed with pornography and perversion as much as the unsaved. Satan has unleashed hordes of perverse and sexual spirits upon the land through television in this generation, but Christians, and ministers in particular, are supposed to resist sin, to war against the devil and his hordes and to keep themselves unspotted from the world. Since when does God's word condone any kind of perverse sexual activity in the name of recreation or entertainment? Christians who insist upon having and viewing televisions are tempting God and allowing themselves and their children to be subject to the very hosts of Hell!What about Christian women partaking of an entertainment medium that regularly brings to the television screen promiscuity, adultery, incest, homosexuality, endlessly serial marriages, drug abuse, violence and double-dealing of every imaginable variety? What about SOAP OPERAS? Could it be that these dramas -with their ample supply of pre-, extra-, intra- and post-marital sex- are the secret vice of the "traditional family values" gang? After all, with Dad at work and the kids at school, soap operas are the Christian housewife's daytime home companion. Like most of us, the one thing church women know is what they like, and from the shocking reports we've gathered it's surely not all art and Bible stories.There is a clear border line between things which thrust themselves upon our vision, and things which we choose to look upon. The one is innocence; the other is SIN! So long as we are in the world we cannot escape the first. But unless we "keep doing to death" the second, we will find ourselves daily skirting the edge of the precipice of sin and final downfall.
