Not many people would argue against spending time in front of the TV for a few hours during the week, especially evenings.
But is 'primetime' viewing truly a good use of prime time for the Christian? Do these programs glorify God in any way? Do they ever edify the viewer?
You will never see the likes of Paul Washer on the major TV networks. Not good for business.
But the constant TV onslaught of people breaking God's 10 Commandments via depictions of murder, lies, theft, adultery, blasphemy, idolatry, coveting, etc., in all their many forms, is a source of "entertainment" for most who watch TV. That, sadly, includes many professing Christians. The networks don't care. It's more bucks in the banks for them.
"I will set before my eyes no vile thing." (Psalm 101:3)
Some Christians may cringe at the one hour length of this sermon video below and ignore it, but would not think twice about watching an R rated flick on the tube for a time twice a long. (I confess: I was there a time ago. I remember how easy it was to justify my "down time".)
So, without further ado, if you are one who prefers to be edified instead of horrified, then I suggest you pop yourself a huge bowl of popcorn, have a seat and enjoy a commercial free, sin free, man humbling, God glorifying video that should speak volumes to your heart and encourage you in your walk with Christ.
I'm heading for the popcorn popper myself! I like watching worthwhile re-runs.
