    It's strange how the Bible make's the most sense when your not a Christian. It speaks volumes to me still, mankind is tainted by a nature that is opposite to love (Charity) Even their good deeds are filthy, and they love to invent new ways of sinning.

    Try this exercise:

    Turn on your TV and flip through the channel's. Notice that each channel is based on a invention of the sinfulness of man.

    Now let the Bible identify which sinful act your viewing.

    Clue:

    Sesame Street

    "You know how to give good gifts to your children"

    Try it out yourselves.

    Yes, that is spooky accurate.

    Food channels:

    Luke 12:29 KJV
    And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.

    Technology has been both a curse and a blessing to mankind....I don't even think TV rates their shows anymore...in my day married couples in a series were not allowed to be filmed sleeping in the same bed.... nowadays...the majority have violence, foul language and sexual content. But I love watching TBN and Daystar....so I am thankful for that.

    NEVER! LOL...its the only source I have to communicate with my friends and family! AHHHHHH! LOL....but honestly I have dreamed of going away into a remote area for a week and just withdraw from all of this buzz. And while I am gone just allow the Holy Spirit to minister to me in anyway He deems necessary.

    No, we don't. I always as a child remember having a radio in the days when radio was king. But, I also remember reading and hearing that religious people or people carrying the Christian label also were of the devil or following the anti-Christ by listening to that electronic device, the radio... Hmmm?


    "The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

    Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us." Ecc 1:9-10

    I haven't had a TV for decades, nor radio. What peace and tranquility sweeps over my soul.

    thing is one can choose what they are watching, and while i used to hold your pov in stone, imo there are many morally redemptive shows on tv that focus on human interactions and illuminate grace, even if it is by the "left hand" so to speak. South Park might offend one, and they might even condemn it, but that does not take away from the show's socially redeeming qualities, at least in the episodes where that is practiced imo, the early ones particularly i guess

    so imo this pov of "tv bad" is more suited to 1970-2000, and imo our movies are still tripe, but "tv" is undergoing a renaissance, many shows are virtual mirrors

    and we are not even considering stuff deemed "educational" here imo

    You can't really choose what you watch while it's all selected for you, especially the TV advertising thats directed to make you buy buy buy.

    An old friend once said this about television.

    "Tv is a reflection of societies sickness"

    Most likely because you are relieved from being brainwashed by corporate fat cats.

    i never watched them even in TV 1.0, now i could get a Hopper :)
    if i didn't determine all of my own programming via the web anyway, and PBS is commercial free anyway, and even YT has last night's episode on today w/o commercials, for many shows. All shows? dunno
    "the eye is the lamp of the body," and i guess your friend was just expressing what he saw after all, right.
    Christian churches are a reflection of society's sickness too i guess

    I'm only aiming at TV here nothing else, although there are plenty of other thing's that are sinful TV has to be up there. I wouldn't sit my child infront of the TV these day's. I'm talking about TV at this present time, it will only get worse.
