Why Do You Watch TV?

C. J. Mahaney’s book Worldliness: Resisting the Seduction of a Fallen World Craig Cabaniss wrote Chapter 2 “God, My Heart, and the Media.”

Here are some questions to ask about TV viewing:

• “Why do I want to watch this program or film? What do I find entertaining about it?”

• “Am I seeking to escape from something I should be facing by watching this? Am I seeking comfort or relief that can be found only in God?”

• “What sinful temptations will this program or film present?”

• “Do I secretly want to view something in it that’s sinful?”

• “Am I watching because I’m bored or lazy? If so, what does that reveal about my heart?”
