The television is full, full, full of sin. You cannot watch a simple tv show without being reminded of sin. So what do we do? This is an area that we have an opportunity to stand firm in God’s word and refuse to allow Satan a foot hole into our minds as much as is possible. We do not have to sit back and just allow sin to rule. We do have a choice to stand up and be counted as a soldier and not a coward for the Lord.
This means that eventually we are going to have to choose to turn off the television, not go to see certain movies, block those from our social media feeds who push sin. Believe me I know how hard this is. And everyone comes to this point of their Christian journey at different times. Several years ago my sister in law said, “I will not watch anything over pg13”. In my mind I thought that was a ridiculous thing to say. In my naïve mind I thought SHE was the weak one. But Now, I get it. I watched the first season of Empire and loved it. I watched several seasons of Scandal and I loved it. But then this verse was explained in a sermon.
“Romans 1:32 Although they (Christians) know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them”.
The minister explained that doing sinful acts is wrong, but also approving and enjoying watching those who practice sin is wrong. So, you may not be participating but you must ask yourself what does it mean about your state of mind if you enjoy watching all the shows that glamorize sin? Real Walk often requires sacrifice.
