Yesterday I posted about Take Heed What You Read – AW Pink where you should give heed to what you fill your mind with as you read.
Here is a good quote from Spurgeon about the same subject that “One Mouthful Is Quite Enough“. Be sure to think about the meat analogy.
But not only do we need to watch what we read, we also need to seriously watch what we see. An image can stick with you for a lifetime. Dea in her post For His Glory…By His Grace….We Finally Cut the Cable!, expresses well why we should watch what we watch.
I think the movie industry understands why we had cable tv. for so long, they refer to it as “our viewing pleasure”
But was it pleasurable? Did we truly enjoy watching and listening to the very things that God hates? No way! We came to understand that the only reason we as Christians would desire to sit in front of the above list is because of the lusts of our unredeemed flesh. (The lust of the flesh, the lust of eyes, the boastful pride of life) The flesh that said ” OH, that looks so good, that will make me feel so good, OH, I need to see that, It will let me hold my head up high, I deserve to relax!, It’s “me” time, etc….) The Bible says in 2 Tim. 3 that in the last days men will be lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God and then it goes on to say say we are to avoid such men as these. So how are we as Christians to deal with the (defeated) unredeemed flesh?
Be sure to read the whole post and see if you can justify continuing to allow the poison in for your family.
