Come let us Grow Together is a weekly series that deals with the many topical categories that exist within the Word of God. The purpose of this series is to grow in wisdom, knowledge, and understanding in things pertaining to God.
The Television is something that today is virtually accessible to everyone. However, the content that is on the Television whether through the commercials, the movie, sitcom, or whatever program you may be viewing can be extremely detrimental to your soul and your walk with Jesus Christ. The content on the Television is highly provocative, sensual, full of filthy language, and imagery. It is extremely difficult to find anything on the Television that isn’t full of filthy content. Even if you do find something that isn’t the commercials are. In this day and age with the accessibility to digital content in one form or another it virtually eliminates the topic of the Television or cable programming as it can be purchased from a variety of sources and used on a variety of devices. Even so “Abstain from all appearance of evil.” (1 Thess 5:22) You are in a spiritual battle fighting “against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Eph 6:12)
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” (1 Jn 2:15-17) “Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” (2 Tim 2:19) “And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.” (Gal 5:24-25)
As Christians we too desire entertainment. However, if you don’t watch you will waste all your time pursuing entertainment versus following after Christ and reaching out to lost souls in need of salvation. “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” (Acts 1:8) The Holy Ghost gives you power! Power also to be his witness! “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:” (1 Peter 3:15” This requires studying the Bible and understanding sound doctrine and then when asked questions concerning our faith being able to answer it. “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” (2 Cor 6:17-7:1)
These are commandments we are reading. This is not maybe I will and maybe I won’t. This is if you don’t you don’t love Jesus Christ and if you don’t love Jesus Christ you will not be saved and if you are not saved you are the enemies of God and will be cast into hellfire where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth. Are you trying to scare me? I’m trying to wake you up to truth! “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” (Jn 14:15) “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” (Mt 10:28) “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” (Heb 10:31) To believe otherwise is foolish!
